Battle of the Bands
EXCEL will host the fourth annual Battle of the Bands 4 p.m. Saturday at Brazos Park.
This is the first time the concert will be held at Brazos Park, which opened in August 2019. Last year, the event took place at the Palo Duro Lounge. Last year’s winners, Verm & Loretta, took home a gift card and recording time with UT Arlington Records and the Department of Music.
The event is free to the public, and fans of all ages are welcome to attend.
MavPlays: Monster Lagoon
Recommended for adult audiences, Monster Lagoon is the first play of the year in the MavPlays 2019-2020 season.
Written by Natalie Gaupp, assistant professor of instruction and playwright-in-residence, the play follows a house renovator who finds a sketchbook of drawings and eventually confronts her past trauma.
The play will premiere Thursday at 7:30 p.m., and showtimes will continue through Sunday. General admission tickets are $5.
Beyonce Ballet and Rosé: All the single ladies night!
Single and want to dance Valentine’s Day away? Arts Mission Oak Cliff is hosting Beyonce Ballet and Rosé: All the single ladies night. The dance workout helps single and committed dancers to show off their moves to the Grammy award winning artist.
Rosé and other treats will be provided for the event which encourages participants to avoid staying home on the romantic holiday. No dance training is required for the beginner level course. Beyonce Ballet has been such a success in the past that Tasia Munoz, Arts Mission Oak Cliff founder and creator of the event, wanted to celebrate it on Valentine’s Day with all the “single ladies.”
The event runs from 7:30 p.m. to 8:45 p.m. on Friday. Tickets will be sold online for $25 and $35 at the door.
