12/29: Piece Us Together

WITH FOUR HANDS: Two Korean pianists throw a folksy dance party for the world from a single bench as part of the Lewisville Lake International Chamber Series. Among other delightful cultural mashups, Grace Kim and Soomin Lee play compositions like Maurice Ravel's Rapsodie Espagnole, which is a series of Spanish dances by a French composer, and American ragtime ditties by Henry F. Gilbert that imagine Uncle Remus and Brer Rabbit. This show is free, but a donation to the Lewisville Lake Symphony is suggested. Trinity Presbyterian Church in Flower Mound, 7:30PM.

IT AND US: Artist Gardar Eide Einarsson moved to New York two days before September 11, 2001. That week would have been a transforming shellshock for anyone from any civilized pocket of the world. But imagine growing up in the walled-off safety of Oslo, Norway and then watching those iconic towers fall in your newly adopted city. The artist focuses on the way institution impacts the individual -- and the other way around -- in themes of limit and societal expectation in an exhibit at The Modern. Open until 5PM

DIVIDE AND CONQUER: We've been catching up on DC9 at Night's year-end list of best local tunes, which edged into the top 5 this week. It's no surprise the The Paper Chase's "What Should We Do With Your Body? (The Lightning)" hit number 12 -- seems the freak-rockers have shown up on every DFW best-of list we've seen since our high school days. We've got out money on the newest band to acheive omnipresence in DFW press, Fort Worth's Telegraph Canyon, to snag the number one spot (maybe with "Shake Your Fist," the tune famously played on KXT 91.7's first day of programming). Members of both bands step out of their regularly scheduled context to play with Brooklyn's Center Divider at Dan's Silverleaf with Emil Rapstine and Will Kapinos. 10PM.
