Night & Day
WED ▪ 28

The performance is at 7pm at 109 Elm St, Denton. Admission is free. Call 940-369-8257.
FRI ▪ 30
Saxophonist, flutist, and clarinetist Chris Vadala joins the TCU Jazz Festival this weekend, playing concerts on both Friday and Saturday with various faculty members and ensembles at the school. Sorry, the thought of a jazz flutist just reminds us of Will Ferrell in Anchorman. The festival runs Fri-Sat at Ed Landreth Auditorium and PepsiCo Recital Hall, 2800 S University Dr, FW. Admission is free-$10. Call 817-257-7602.
SAT ▪ 31
Rose Marine Theatre often serves as a forum for Latino arts and culture, but tonight it gives way to Middle Eastern dance with the RAKS Into Spring Gala.

SUN ▪ 1
Killer bats and aftershave lotion? That’s the wacky premise behind The Devil Bat, a 1940 film starring Béla Lugosi that screens as part of a three-part series of movies about mad scientists at Fort Worth Museum of Science and History. Lugosi plays a scientist who trains giant bats to kill anybody wearing the aftershave he has invented. Is Axe using his formula? The movie screens at 2pm at 1600 Gendy St, FW. Admission is free with museum tickets. Call 817-255-9300.
MON ▪ 2
The ninth annual Edible Book Festival lights up a dull Monday at UNT this afternoon, as students, faculty, and staff members enter completely edible representations of books to be judged.
