Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks — Mirror Traffic

Pavement legend still plenty feisty.


Indie

Matt Carney
So what happens when you pair a couple of 1990s indie legends, setting the one known for bizarro, folky hip-hop at the control panel, and the one who famously dissed Smashing Pumpkins and Stone Temple Pilots behind the microphone?

VOTD: People, People do The VDub Sessions

People, People get ready, for the van’s a-comin’

Stillwater dudes People, People spread their flannel blankets over their drum skins for a muted, intimate show inside the ol’ VDub Vanagon with videographer Nathan Poppe for the latest episode of “The VDub Sessions.” Titled “Golden Rust,” the song’s new and lovely. Everybody involved gets bonus points for riding around in that AC-less heat trap.

'Babe' watch

'BVB' heading to DVD!

Did you read Richard York’s Oklahoma Gazette feature earlier this summer about the locally shot horror comedy “Bikini Vampire Babes”?


Someone did, according to this letter from “BVB” co-writer/director/producer Ted West: “Wanted to let you know that a distributor in New York read your article about our movie and picked us up for distribution. Just wanted to say thanks!”

You’re welcome! Gazette power! —Rod Lott
