The Gothic era of the Catholic Church, overt sexuality and female power are among the themes informing “Salvation,” the spring 2015 collection from local designer Leighton Whittington’s new fashion line Leighton W. Couture. Flowy and revealing, yet toughened up with hard-edged styling and a rebellious spirit, the debut collection makes its statement almost entirely in black and gold (an on-trend color palette if you ask Sarah Burton, creative director at Alexander McQueen). Blurring lines between exhibition opening and fashion show, “Salvation” highlights more than 20 original looks (worn by models and local personalities) enhanced with a sound installation, visual art by James Raska and a confessional area with wearable prizes based on the best Facebook and Instagram posts tagged #salvation2015. According to Whittington, “The time has come for a fashion salvation and resurrection.”
Launched in 1980 by the local nonprofit Texas Talent Musicians Association, the Tejano Music Awards is dedicated to providing “a better understanding and greater appreciation for Tejano music,” as well as a public forum for the genre’s songwriters, performers and musicians. Most recently celebrated for his satirical CD ¡La Migra Gone Wild!, Corpus Christi-based vocal impressionist and magician Happy the Comedian hosts the 34th annual event—which kicks off with a red carpet ceremony before swinging into full gear with an awards extravaganza featuring performances by more than a dozen influential acts, including Elida Reyna y Avante, Ruben Ramos, Stefani Montiel (left), Los DesperadoZ, Stephanie Lynn, Dwayne Verheyden and Tortilla Factory.
Slab Cinema and District 3 Councilwoman Rebecca Viagran co-host a screening of Spanish director Pablo Berger’s Blancanieves (2012), a silent, black-and-white fantasy that sets the Brothers Grimm tale of Snow White in 1920s-era Andalusia. Blancanieves tells the story of Carmen (Inma Cuesta), a young woman with amnesia who does not know her father is the famous bullfighter Antonia Villalta (Daniel Giménez Cacho). When Antonia suffers a career-ending accident, he marries Encarna (Maribel Verdú), the evil stepmother who hides Antonia away from Carmen and takes poor care of him while gallivanting about with the chauffeur. Encarna treats Carmen like a slave and Carmen runs away only to find a troupe of bullfighting dwarves. The dwarves nickname her Blancanieves, after the famed fairy tale, and take advantage of her skills as a bullfighter in their routine. On the brink of fame, Blancanieves’ life will be in danger if Encarna discovers who she is, as Encarnca believes her to be dead. This twist on the Snow White fairy tale is an homage to European silent cinema.
Fred Durst’s rap/nu-metal outfit Limp Bizkit is, amazingly, still around and expecting to release a new album in early 2015. Having been through the popularity ringer a time or two, Durst has a reputation as one of the douchiest douche-bags around. Still, we mustn’t forget why he started making angry music to begin with: the Nookie. Now there’s something we can all relate to. Actually, we can all relate to a deep longing for Nookie and to immature anger, which means Durst is practically our mascot. One thing’s for sure: The Aztec will never be the same. With Machine Gun Kelly.
Orson Welles once said, “I hate television. I hate it as much as peanuts. But I can’t stop eating peanuts.” If old Mr. Welles were alive today he’d certainly want to pick up his nuts and pull up a seat at Tease-O-Vision, a tribute to TV’s greatest moments courtesy of award-winning Stars and Garters Burlesque, SA’s longest-running troupe. These seasoned performers regularly transgress societal boundaries onstage as they explore gender and sexuality in raucous routines; it seems only natural that they should conquer the boob tube, too. Wardrobe malfunctions are promised.
