    BACKYARD CHICKENS AND MORE: It might have started out as a book that turned into a TV series that turned into a play, but Little House on the Prairie is about American as apple pie.  Even if you can’t remember watching the Michael Landon-driven prime-time blockbuster, you better believe your momma did; plus it’s never to late for a belated mothers day gift, especially when it’s at the landmark Fair Park Music Hall.

    GOOD LOOKIN’ OUT: So yea you’ve seen Moby Dick, but that doesn’t mean that you’ve experienced the whole of the AT&T Performing Arts Center. Get out tonight to see "Reasons To Be Pretty" at the Wyly Theatre. The third in a trilogy of edgy, modern plays by Neil Labute, the writer and director of such heartwarming tales as "In the Company of Men." Fans of Bret Easton Ellis will appreciate this hip, unsettling narrative.

Tonight marks the CD release of her first LP, Suburban Nature at Dan’s Silverleaf. Get there early as this is sure to sell out.
