  • On Saturday, March 1, Joshua Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus — better known as The Minimalists — will be bringing their 100-city world tour through Dallas with an appearance at Barnes and Noble, just across Central at 7700 W. Northwest Hwy. They’ll be there at 7 p.m., and the event is free.
  • It’s a tad out of our neighborhood, but The Reading Room is hosting an exhibition presented by the collective (wo)manorial until March 1. The title “never to be yourself and yet always – that is the problem” is taken from Virginia Woolf’s “The Modern Essay.” The group exhibition addresses those endless doubts and beliefs, searches and frustrations, manipulations and attempts to be honest with art and with ourselves, questioning the freedom that gives pleasure but also uncertainty. The Reading Room is a project space at 3715 Parry that’s dedicated to text and image. For further information, contact Karen Weiner 214.952.4109 or check out the website for more.
  • DGDG is premiering a new dance work, “Dirty Filthy Diamonds,” at the Margo Jones Theatre in Fair Park, from Feb. 26-March 8. Tickets are $10. Read more on eventbrite.
  • On Thursday, Dylan and Company in Deep Ellum is hosting an open house from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Read more of the event on Facebook.
