Tasha's To Do List: March 12-15

KRLD -- Want to attend the big parade? How about a concert at the Dallas Arboretum? KRLD's Tasha Stevens fills you in on what's happening this weekend!

-- If you dig 80's tunes, you will dig these guys. The Molly Ringwalds will take you back in time Thursday night as part of the Spring Break/Dallas Blooms concert at the Dallas Arboretum.

-- I love this lady for many reasons -- chief among them -- her love of homeless animals, her love of Texas, and her ability to write her own songs that rock (even though they are country). See Lindale, Texas' own Miranda Lambert Thursday night at the AAC.

-- If you like Val Kilmer and the music of the The Doors, kill two birds with one stone Thursday night at the Granada Theater with their showing of the movie "The Doors."

-- Thursday night at the House of Blues, you can take a trip back to the 80's just by walking through the door. Enjoy the smooth sounds of KISS tribute Rock and Roll Over, Def Leppard tribute Hysteria and Ratt tribute Infestation.

-- And in keeping with the whole rock vibe thing, you can watch Pink Floyd's: The Wall Thursday night at the Granada Theater. Groovy.

-- See the Dallas Symphony Orchestra's Romeo and Juliet at the Meyerson Symphony Center through Sunday.

-- The 30th Annual Texas Storytelling Festival is happening this weekend at Denton Civic Center. Storytellers and story lovers will have the chance to take part in four days of workshops, concerts, a Liars Contest, Saturday evening dinner and silent auction, and plenty of tale spinning.

-- If you were listening to country radio in the 80's, you were listening to this guy. See Ronnie Milsap Friday night at Billy Bob's in Fort Worth.

-- The Lonestar Fest at the Doubletree Richardson Friday and Saturday is the greatest acoustic music festival of the spring! Get out of the house and enjoy an all-weekend celebration of bluegrass music with incredible artists including Suzy Bogguss, the Boxcars, and Marty Raybon & Full Circle.

-- Friday is Friday the 13th and in honor of the freakiness of the day, Moxley Manor Haunted House is opening its doors for a Friday the 13th Haunted House.

-- If you are a Zeppelin fan, these guys are the next best thing. See Led Zeppelin tribute Swan Song Friday night at the Granada.

-- This guy has written tunes for Tom Petty, Willie Nelson, Mick Jagger, Marc Anthony, Pat Green, Travis Tritt and Daughtry -- but you probably know him more for his band Matchbox 20. See Rob Thomas at Choctaw Casino Saturday night.

-- The 36th Anniversary Dallas St. Patrick's Day Parade & Festival is happening Saturday, kicking off on Greenville @ Blackwell St. and ending at Yale Blvd/SMU Blvd @ 75 Central Expressway. This is the Largest St. Patrick's Parade in the Southwest with over 90 Parade Float Entries.

-- There are not many movies I want to see in the theater, but this is one of them. This version of "Cinderella" that opens Thursday was directed by the awesome actor and director Kenneth Branagh and also stars the amazing Cate Blanchett and Helena Bonham Carter.

-- "Home Sweet Hell" also opens in theaters today (3/13). Not really a fairy tale. It is about a man who seems to have it all….until his wife finds out about his messing around with a young salesgirl and then stops at nothing to maintain their storybook life.

-- The Christian band Third Day will be at the Verizon this Sunday.

-- Spend St Patty's Day the scary way with Dark Hour Haunted House. Dark Hour Haunted House's St Patrick's Slay Weekend is happening Friday and Saturday.

-- The World's Only St. Paddy's Pickle Parade is happening Thursday, Friday and Saturday in downtown Mansfield. This year, while the city of Mansfield celebrates its 125th anniversary, city officials will serve as the parade grand marshals. The post-parade Palooza features pickle- and pie-eating contests, a pickle juice drinking contest and more live music, from The Rental Rockers. This thing lasts three days so wear your comfortable shoes, ya'll.
