Wear it


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff
Calm down, Ayn Rand devotees — it’s not that kind of tea party. The University of Oklahoma School of Art and Art History invites the public to its fourth annual Tee Party, starting at 5:30 p.m. Thursday at Fred Jones Art Center, 540 Parrington Oval in Norman. Bring a T-shirt, tote bag or pillowcase to be printed with exclusive designs; watch printmaking demos; and enjoy pizza and soda while you’re at it. Admission is free. Call 325-2691 or visit art.ou.edu.

Shadow of no doubt

Enjoying the success of Confess, Twin Shadow is certain to put his hard-partying ways behind him ... well, mostly.

Rites of Passage

Wrongs make 'Rites.'


Thriller

Rod Lott
Rites of Passage's box art of boring actors’ faces should switch with the illustration adorning the actual disc: a play on the ol' skull and crossbones logo, but using a sock monkey and shotguns. That's what convinced me the film might be worth its 102 minutes. Ultimately, it's not, but its first half makes for an interesting mess.

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.

Why watch Sunday’s Grammys telecast on the couch when you can do so while at the “Gold • Glitz • Glamour” benefit gala at the Gaylord-Pickens Museum? From 6:30 to 10:30 p.m., the venue at 1400 Classen Drive rolls out red-carpet treatment with live music from the Groove Merchants, a silent auction, gourmet hors d’oeuvres and signature cocktails. Tickets are $75. Call 235-2714 or visit oklahomaheritage.com.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower

High school was tough.


Drama

Phil Bacharach
John Hughes, for all the love people heap on his ’80s teen movies, was far too easy on high school. Maybe your high school experience was different than mine — and, if so, congrats. For many of us, however, those years were a marathon of self-pity, heartache, passion and anything else you’d find on an album by The Smiths.
