Wednesday 06 – How about a little activism for your holiday season? The collective of environmental artists calling themselves Unicorn Riot made a two-hour documentary called Black Snake Killaz about the resistance to the Dakota Access Pipeline, and you can see it tonight in Denton. The screening is at 8pm at Dan’s Silverleaf, 103 Industrial St, Denton. Admission is free. Call 940-320-2000.
Thursday 07 – Ricki Derek playing at the Scat Jazz Lounge isn’t anything new, but our city’s resident swing music maestro will be running his ninth annual A Merry Little Christmas Show at the downtown venue, performing jazzed-up versions of your favorite holiday songs. The shows are Fri-Sat at 111 W 4th St, FW. Tickets are $32-38. Call 817-870-9100.
Friday 08 –Better than a pub crawl is a pub crawl for a charitable cause. That’s the promise of Santacon, a national event in which people dressed as Santa or in other Christmas gear go out for a night of drinking while benefiting a local charity, in our case the Tarrant Area Food Bank. The event starts at 6pm at T&P Tavern, 221 W Lancaster Av, FW. Admission comes with a donation of cash or canned goods.
