Bar none

When The Sounds asked Kids at the Bar to sidle up for a European tour, the OKC DJ duo made it a double.


Music

Joshua Boydston

Oklahoma City DJ duo Kids at the Bar has many memories over the course of two full tours with Swedish indie rockers The Sounds, one across America and another currently in Europe. Explaining the rules of football ranks among the pair’s favorites … and weirdest.

Holy crap, Batman!

The caped crusader swoops in for a live show in October.

In the late ’70s, I once saw Batman and Robin appear at some circus at The Myriad. It was just two nobodies in costume as part of the show, but I was a first grader and, therefore, didn’t care. I was such a Batman nut back then that when one day, when our family sheepdog was about to die, I chose to watch that afternoon’s rerun of the Adam West TV show instead of saying goodbye.

Yes, I’m heartless. This has not changed.

Now I have a heartless first grader of my own, and sure enough, he flipped when I told him that the Batman Live worldwide arena tour is coming to town. More specifically, to Chesapeake Energy Arena for eight performances, Oct. 10-14. I mean, take a look:



It’s like a mix of Cirque du Soleil, the Joel Schumacher movies and hallucinogens.

Tickets are already on sale by calling 800-745-3000. —Rod Lott

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.
