OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff
Did you think I’d crumble? Did you think I’d lay down and die? If those defiant lyrics get your feet a-tapping, cruise on down to the Civic Center Music Hall, 201 N. Walker, for the Oklahoma City Philharmonic’s Disco Days and Boogie Nights. At 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Jack Everly will conduct such ’70s smashes as “I Will Survive,” “American Pie” and “Bohemian Rhapsody.” Tickets are $25- $52. Call 842-5387 or visit okcphilharmonic.org.

In the Oct. 31 issue of Oklahoma Gazette, you'll find a review of Okie-born Wanda Jackson's brand-new album, Unfinished Business, which our writer deems "sexy."

Wanda Jackson — Unfinished Business


Rock

Phil Bacharach
You can’t keep genuine royalty from flaunting their power. Wanda Jackson, the 1950s’ Queen of Rockabilly who set the standard for rock ’n’ roll women and even managed to get Elvis Presley hot and bothered, is back with Unfinished Business.

End of Watch / Officer Down

Two new releases shine a light on the shield.


Thriller

Rod Lott
I'm a sucker for a good cop movie, and End of Watch is a great one. Had I seen it before its home-video release, it would have made my 2012 year-end list.

Nobody Gets Out Alive

Slash ’n’ trash.


Horror

Rod Lott
Horror fanatics making horror movies is the worst thing about today’s horror movies — worse than remakes, The CW casts and the PG-13 rating. And I say that as a critic who loves the genre.

Eastbound & Down: The Complete Third Season

Major-league laughs at bat.


Television series

Rod Lott
On the basis of Eastbound & Down’s first two seasons, if Kenny Powers were a real person, I’d advise readers to lock up their daughters. After watching the third season, I’d add infants and toddlers to that list.
