Turns out there’s a reason 1979’s Skatetown, U.S.A. has never hit VHS or DVD: It really sucks. The alleged comedy starring Scott Baio and Patrick Swayze will get a live, Mystery Science Theater 3000-style beating from The Movie Clubbed, whose members include a few Oklahoma Gazetteers, at 8 p.m. Saturday at Oklahoma City Museum of Art, 415 Couch. Also to be skewered: a 1972 short by the OKC Urban Renewal Authority. Tickets are $5-$8. Call 236-3100 or visit

Mon — Goodbye September

Hip Hop/Rap

Joshua Boydston
Oklahoma City emcee Mon is a rapper at heart, but there’s a singer-songwriter in there too. His self-aware Goodbye September plays like an open diary of slinky and saddened beats ready-made to emote over and pour into.

Joshua Boydston
There’s a difference between being derivative and being inspired by something, a line a lot of artists can’t seem to find — or at least don’t care to.
