This weekend: Del Castillo, farmers market, block party, art shows, documentaries

There’s plenty do to in Oak Cliff this weekend, but who’s having a heatwave party? On Saturday, Aug. 13, we tie the record for the most consecutive days of temperatures 100 degrees or higher with 42. Maybe it’s nothing to celebrate, but we’re all feeling a little whacky, right? It doesn’t even have to be a party. Just turn on some Martha and the Vandellas and make one of these Martha Stewart cocktails. While we’re on Marthas, maybe we also should ask St. Martha to slay this dragon of a summer? Express our lament through interpretive dance like Martha Graham? I don’t know. It’s your party.

Anyway, if you do have a heatwave party, send us pics: rstone@advocatemag.com. Here’s what else is up this weekend:

Ryan Thomas Becker performs at BarBelmont starting at 7 p.m. Friday.

Del Castillo performs at the Kessler Theater Friday.

Taste of What’s to Come Farmers Market is from 8 a.m.-noon Saturday at Sylvan and Fort Worth Avenue. Here is the event listing on facebook.

The Tyler/Davis Block Party Saturday includes chocolate samples, low-brow art, an art competition, live music, DJs and more.

The Davis Foundry gallery is opening a show, Diana Marquis’ “Little Stories”, from 6-9 p.m. Saturday.

The third Cool Waters art show is at the Kessler from 6-10 p.m. Saturday. Tickets are $20. It features lots of local artists, a burlesque performer, poetry performances and something about dancing mermaids and pirates.
