5 Things You Have to do This Week


Monday, December 10
Edward Scissorhands


Edward Scissorhands marks the first of many continued collaborations between director Tim Burton and Johnny Depp, and is largely considered by fans and critics to be the best film of both of their careers. Depp stars as Edward, an achingly lonely, unfinished creation whose gentleness of spirit is betrayed the long, menacing shears that stand in for his hands. $9.50, 7pm, Monday, Alamo Drafthouse Westlakes, 1244 SW Loop 410, (210) 677-8500, drafthouse.com.

Monday, December 8
Rosie Flores


Born in San Antonio, TX and raised in Southern California, Rosie Flores' music blends the best of honky tonk, rockabilly, and jazz with the traditional sounds of her Tex-Mex heritage. Since the late 70s, she has been an important figure in the Los Angeles, Austin, TX and Nashville music scenes. $10, 8:30pm, Monday, Sam's Burger Joint, 330 E Grayson, (210) 223-2830, samsburgerjoint.com.
