Confetti Eddie's Magic Show Exposition Avenue is a strange little street filled with diversion and magic. No, really, magic. You'll know Confetti Eddie's magic parlor (823 Exposition Ave.) by the smaller-than-life dinosaur out front -- an artifact of his own creation. Inside, you'll be welcomed into a show that is equal parts art and magic. He performs tricks with cinematic perfection, shrinking the un-shrinkable and making permanent things disappear -- like heads, for one. Working with his lovely assistant Karleena, he fills his magic show with marvels that will make your jaw drop. It's your chance to grab tickets to see the Magic Show, which takes place at 8:15 p.m. Friday. They're $20 each, but they disappear faster than Karleena's clothes -- and you won't want to miss that trick. More information is available at sidetour.com. photo by Karlo X. Ramos.
Sideshow Spectacular Fire eaters, sword swallowers, and bearded ladies. It's a night of old fashioned freak show magic that you won't want to miss. The party starts at 9 p.m. at the Doublewide. For an entry fee of $12, you'll get illusions, music from The Free Loaders, and cheap drinks.

Currently residing in the Exposition Park neighborhood of Dallas, TX, the Oak Cliff born visual artist Edward Ruiz couples his current artistic interests in digital video mapping and real time sound analysis to seamlessly marry geometric sculpture, music, and mathematic technology as a means to create all encompassing sensory installations of sight, movement, and sound. Along with these artistic endeavors, Ruiz rounds out his repertoire with the mediums of resin cast sculpture, acrylic paintings, and character-driven toy-making.
