The Swell Season

Lightning strikes ‘Once.’


Documentary

Rod Lott
Remember how joyous you felt at the end of 2006's excellent Irish indie Once? Well, The Swell Season is why there is no sequel. Hell, it practically is the sequel, only factual instead of fictional.

‘Hazzard’ warning

Just a good ol’ boy, never meanin’ no harm, actor Tom Wopat crashes the UCO Jazz Lab.

Fresh from his “hey, isn’t that Tom Wopat?” appearance in Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained, actor Tom Wopat will perform two concerts Saturday at the UCO Jazz Lab, 100 E. Fifth in Edmond.

Although he’s promoting his brand-new CD, I’ve Got Your Number, and is a two-time Tony nominee for his Broadway pursuits, Wopat is perhaps best-known for playing Luke Duke on the early ’80s TV hit The Dukes of Hazzard.

But don’t just take my word for it.

“Audiences will definitely remember Tom Wopat as one of the rowdy Dukes of Hazzard boys, but he is so much more than that,” said Greg White, director and producer of UCO’s Broadway Tonight series.

The shows are scheduled for 6:30 and 9:30 p.m. Tickets are $40. For more information, call 974-3375 or visit uco.edu/cfad/events. —Rod Lott

Argo

2012's presumed Best Picture winner hits home video.


Thriller

Phil Bacharach
Generating suspense from a story that is a matter of historical record is no easy thing. That was the primary challenge facing Ben Affleck and Chris Terrio, the director-star and writer, respectively, of Argo, a thriller inspired by a real-life covert operation that helped rescue six U.S. embassy workers out of Iran during the 1979 hostage crisis.

One in Three

Oklahoma City’s Nathan Mickle makes up a third of the new vocal group The American Three, dedicated to belting out standards.


Music

Louis Fowler
Press materials for The American Three tag the new vocal group as “fun and wholesome,” with a little Rat Pack thrown in “just for flavor!” It’s that extra flavor that Three member and lifelong Ol’ Blue Eyes fan Nathan Mickle believes fits his song stylings to a T.

Sushi Girl

For those who like it raw.


Thriller

Rod Lott
No matter what you see or hear, don't move a muscle. That’s the advice one very bad man gives to the titular Sushi Girl. Particularly squeamish viewers won’t be able to adhere to such counsel, as this minor crime gem revels in the revolting.

The Great Magician

Now you see it ...


Drama

Rod Lott
With magic-themed movies The Incredible Burt Wonderstone and Now You See Me on the way, Hollywood is all about the abracadabra these days. If that exposes more eyeballs to 2011’s The Great Magician, good.

House party

Oklahoma Christian radio station The House FM celebrates 20 years on the air.


Features

Rachael Cervenka
In 1992, tax accountant Doyle Brewer was inspired to bring Christian radio to northern Oklahoma. He didn’t have a clue what he was doing, but he felt called to this mission. Despite modest beginnings, his vision transformed into something much bigger than he ever dreamed.

Tony Romanello and the Black Jackets — Pleased to Meet Us


Rock

Louis Fowler
It’s probably no accident that the title of Tony Romanello and the Black Jackets’ EP invokes The Replacements’ Pleased to Meet Me; as on that 1987 album, the ’Mats reconciled their roots-punk past with a more mature power-pop sound, so do these Tulsans.
