Tiny Furniture

You’ll have a good time watching Lena Dunham have a hard time in her brainy, but buoyant film


Rod Lott

Warning: Those allergic to quirkiness may be sent into fits of anaphylactic shock by the DIY indie “Tiny Furniture,” but the immune among us will find something of a rough gem. The microbudget dramedy plays Friday through Sunday at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art.

Something awesome, something blue

There’s no reason to stay at home this weekend

Spring has sprung (we hope) as I noted in a mixtape recently, so get out there and do something music-related. There’s plenty to do this weekend.

OKS fave Ryan Lawson will be kickin’ it at Blue Note tonight with Bloody Ol' Mule and Aaron Barker. The acoustic scene has started to grow with the advent of Acoustic Oklahoma, and these three guys have gotten some well-deserved press because of that burgeoning movement/idea/showcase/thing. Check it out – it’s only five bucks.

If you like blue things and acoustic music, but don’t really like the bar setting of the previous entry, Greg Trooper releases “Upside-Down Town” Saturday at The Blue Door. Trooper’s true to his name, as he’s a troubadour and a touring man, originally from New Jersey. Kickstarter helped him make this record, which is a cool side note, as I’ve been addicted to that website recently.

 Jumping way across genres, “Red Bull Thre3Style” features DJs from Oklahoma competing against each other in a format that gives each one 15 minutes. The DJs have to make a set that combines different musical genres (with no mixing programs allowed). The judges will select winners based on “track selection, creativity, mixing skills, stage presence and overall crowd reaction,”according to the press release. OKC’s John Bourke, Mark Marino, DJ Diverse, DJ Switch, and DJ Boom will go up against Tulsa’s DJ Moody and DJ Kylie and Bartlesville’s Darku J. Show begins at 10 p.m. Saturday at Kamp’s Deli. Five bucks to get in.

And for the young’uns, or old’uns sporting young’uns on their hip, the Oklahoma City Museum of Art is having a family day Saturday featuring OKS faves Sugar Free Allstars and Spaghetti Eddie. Both acts are quality musicians that won’t disappoint any age bracket. The show starts at 2 p.m., but the family day goes from noon to 4. It’s $12 for adults, $10 for students/seniors, $5 for military and free to members and children ages 5 and under.

Get out there and rock.

An uproarious, actual terrorist comedy

Remember in the days after 9/11 when media reports and overly sensitive people asked/moaned, “Will we ever be able to laugh again?”
