Fuggedaboutit. No, really: Fuggedaboutit.


Comedy

According to the IMDb, Hyung-rae Shim is one of South Korea's most beloved comedians. After seeing "The Last Godfather," for which he serves as the writer/director/star, we'll agree to disagree.

Small Sur — Tones

Doing more with less.


Indie

Matt Carney
Baltimore, Md. is so very rich with quality music right now. Bands like Beach House, Wye Oak and Animal Collective (AC relocated to NYC, but some of their first media coverage came from Baltimore City Paper) have established themselves as national-caliber indie acts with large-scale sounds to boot.

Lip service

The second annual Mustache Bash is tomorrow!

I have been carefully grooming my mustache for the last month in preparation, and it is finally here: Shop Good’s second annual Mustache Bash. The celebration of the lip rug will rub its whiskery goodness all over Ninth Street tomorrow from 4 p.m. to midnight.

The massive block party will benefit Sunbeam Family Services and bring together the restaurants and businesses of the always-fun Ninth Street and Automobile Alley. All mustaches will be welcome — from the thin-and-villain-y to the waxed-and-curled handlebar — but for those of you with embarrassingly bare upper lips, Sunbeam will sell stick-on lip-ticklers.

Besides the ’staches, the Mustache Bash will include food, local artists, live bands and the new sunglasses line from noted mustache aficionado Warby Parker.

VOTD: All Other Lives, all the time

Five, yes five! live performances for KEXP!

Stillwater band Other Lives is about a month away from opening for the guy who’s the odds-on favorite for album of the year right now (can you say national exposure?). But currently, they’re about to jet off to Europe for a string of festival and small-venue dates. It appears that it’ll be a few months before they perform in Oklahoma again.

But fear not, friends! KEXP Radio in Seattle shot five live-in-studio performances by Jesse Tabish and company. “For 12” is my favorite here, but please watch them and let me know what you think. I can’t overstate how great it is that Other Lives is representing Oklahoma to indie audiences across the country and Europe right now.

For  12”


As I Lay My Head Down”


“Dark Horse”


Weather”


“Tamer Animals”


Kudos to Oklahomarock.com, who first pointed this out on their news blog!

Somehow, it’s already back-to-school time for kids. (That’s otherwise known as continue-to-work time for us sad, vacation-less adults.)
