  • Pure Prairie League at Arlington Music Hall - website details include, "When Pure Prairie League formed in the late 1960s, no one had put a label on the music they played. Although the band drew heavily from 1960s’ rock, the group added a heavy dose of country and high-flying harmony that gave it a unique sound soon to be known as country-rock. Pure Prairie League, along with groups like the Eagles, reached mainstream radio listeners by the mid-1970s, as singles like “Amie” climbed the Billboard charts. Pure Prairie League continued to record, tour, and place singles on the charts."



Born out of a nostalgic love for vinyl and a desperate need to fill in the holes in our collections, we bring you the newest record show in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. Just think of it as the biggest record store in town."
  • Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Parade and March at Patty Granville Arts Center

  • Dallas Stars vs. Winnipeg Jets - 6:00 p.m. - American Airlines Center 

  • Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo: All-Western Parade at Sundance Square - their website notes, "Don’t miss the tradition of the Fort Worth Stock Show’s “All Western Parade” scheduled Saturday, January 19, 2019 at 11 a.m. in Downtown Fort Worth! The Stock Show Parade is held each year on the first Saturday of the Show. More than 100,000 spectators line the streets of downtown Cowtown to watch this spectacular annual event. An all-western parade means plenty of horses and wagons – but no motorized vehicles are allowed!"

    • Jurassic Quest at Fair Park - website info includes, "Jurassic Quest is Americas Largest and most realistic Dinosaur Event. Our guests will walk through the Cretaceous period, the Jurassic Period and The Triassic period and experience for themselves what it was like to be among living, breathing dinosaurs. Jurassic Quest is the only Dinosaur event that has true to life size dinosaurs. From the very small, to the gigantic, sky-scraping dinosaurs that can only be seen at Jurassic Quest events. Jurassic Quest has over 80 true to life size dinosaurs in each of it's 2 events. In collaboration with leading paleontologists, each one was painstakingly replicated in every detail.

We present over 50 days of programs every year -- We're a 50-day film festival! How did we get our name? When the festival was created in 1970, it was the first program in the world to exclusively recognize and celebrate The American Filmmaker. Our program reach may have expanded since then, but we maintain our name and commitment to great works and great filmmakers who inspire us."
