TEX-MEX STATE OF MIND: If the music of Frank Sinatra or Nat King Cole gives you goose bumps with lyrics similar to smooth jazz and the subtle ballad sound, you may be suffering “crooner” envy. Tonight channel your inner Sinatra for a chance to win some cash! La Calle Doce Restaurante (famed for serving delicious seafood Mexicano) in Lakewood is hosting a Crooner’s Contest. If you can’t think of any current crooners, think Michael Buble. Get on stage, sing a ditty and enjoy some Tex-Mex cuisine in between. The night of bowtie class begins at 7 p.m. and ends with the champion crooner receiving a $300 cash prize. May the best songster win.
SHAKESPEARE SHAKES THINGS UP: It’s a classic drama complete with two guys, two girls and always wanting what someone else has – thanks, Shakespeare. “The Two Gentlemen of Verona” is obviously about two gentlemen who are friends, Valentine and Proteus who leave Verona for Milan and fall for the same girl, Silvia. Meanwhile, Proteus’s Verona girlfriend Julia heads to Milan unraveling a twisted chain of events in true Shakespearean style. The performance directed by Raphael Perry begins at 8 p.m. in the Samuell-Grand Amphitheatre in Dallas and runs through Oct. 2.
SISTER, SISTER: Two long-lost sisters with an inner love of music and the talent to back it up are what CocoRosie is all about. The two girl group made up of sisters Bianca (CoCo) and Sierra (Rosie) got together in 2003 after reuniting in Paris. Playing music that represents a new kind of indie sound – freak folk. CocoRosie experiments with a variety of musical elements to create unique beats. Tonight the duo plays up the Granada Theater in Dallas at 8 p.m.
