10/12: An Education

Heavy metal hipsters, classical open mic night, and Mexican culture

BACK IN THE (HEAVY METAL) HABIT: The whole long hair, bad attitude personae seems to follow heavy metal bands – throw in decades of musical success mixed with break-ups to make-ups and you have Accept. The German-born heavy metal crew (with a long list of former members) started playing in 1968, known as Band X back then. Now, they are back on tour promoting their fourth studio album “Blood of Nations.” The heavy metal veterans can be heard at the House of Blues Dallas tonight with legendary hard rockers Kings X and White Collar Ghetto at 7:30 p.m.

RELEASE YOUR INNER BEETHOVEN: If you get chills after hearing the classical beauty of Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy” or Mozart’s “Requiem Mass,”  then bring your love of classical music to open mic night at BuzzBrews Kitchen in Dallas. Every Tuesday night classical singers and instrumentalists hone their craft in front of devoted listeners. The musical tribute to classical legends played by up-in-comers is free for everyone to enjoy. The piano playing and violin stringing begins at 7:30 p.m. 

CULTURE THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS: An exhibit that celebrates Mexican women titled “El Ojo Fino/The Exquisite Eye” is on display now at the Latino Cultural Center in Dallas. In honor of the Mexican bicentennial, the Wittliff Collections at Texas State University in San Marcos organized artistic works from three generations of Mexican women – all expressive and passionate about their culture and art. The artwork will be on display until Nov. 24.
