7/27: Eat, Shriek And Be Merry

Fill your belly and your soul tonight with food, film and Fenders

MICRO-TO-DO'S: Right off the heals of the Taste of Dallas comes a Taste of the West Village, and if you enjoyed that event as much as we did, then you're not going to want to miss this. Today from 6-10 p.m., West Village invites you to the second annual Taste of West Village benefiting the North Texas Food Bank. Restaurants will offer tastings right outside their doors for a mere $1 donation the the North Texas Food Bank. Make a $5 donation at the North Texas Food Bank table and you will be entered into a drawing to win a dinner for four at one of several West Village restaurants. Every dollar collected will provide four meals for North Texans in need. Read more here.

COOL IT NOW: Sometimes it takes a village to raise a smile, and that's exactly the case with the Texas Theater. Last week the theater had to shut down temporarily to fix its air conditioning unit. If your parents telling you they weren't cooling the entire neighborhood didn't clue you in; AC is pricey. Keep that in mind when you to see Alfred Hitchcock's (at one time) controversial classic Rope at the theater tonight. This film was considered a technological marvel at the time for utilizing a live theatre style of shooting, including doing most of the filming in long, single takes. Come see this classic thriller the beautifully bizarre Texas Theatre, which  -- with your $5 donation -- will continue to stay as cool as Don Draper.

A TWEE BIT OF EXCITEMENT: It’s the little things that kill with Austin’s Yellow Fever. The infectious pop trio’s toxic combination of minimal arrangements and vocal harmonies leaves listeners experiencing various degrees of euphoria. Experience a bit of that euphoria yourself tonight at Dan's Silverleaf. Guitarist Jennifer Moore, who also performs in the 60’s-inspired girl group Carrots, the Pinecombs, and Voxtrot, and bassist Isabel Martin, formerly of Teenage Dog, come across like the daughters of The Mamas and The Papas; free-spirited sisters who spent their teenage years singing together in front of bathroom mirrors while holding hairdryers and combs. Their vocals are, in fact, their most effective and inviting instrument. Land Mammals open.
