OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

Two years ago, controversial comedian Bill Maher told Oklahoma Gazette, “I have more fun in the red states than anywhere,” and he wasn’t kidding. At 7 p.m. Sunday, the host of HBO’s Real Time returns to Civic Center Music Hall, 201 N. Walker, with more political satire than you can shake a phony birth certificate at. Tickets are $55-$75. Call 297-2264 or visit okcciviccenter.com.

Swan it


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

So hard to believe, yet so true: Despite 41 years in existence, Oklahoma City Ballet never has staged a full performance of Swan Lake, one of the classic ballets of all time. That changes at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 2 p.m. Sunday, when the 26-dancer troupe rewrites history at Civic Center Music Hall, 201 N. Walker. Tickets are $33-$55. Call 848-8637 or visit okcballet.com.

Cop it


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

One might think that after 123 years, the Oklahoma City Police Department would have a lot of history to share. It does! Now on display from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays at City Hall, 200 N. Walker, is just that, with photos, documents and historical items, including a bomb suit and robot from the 1980s, an armored vest from the 1930s and a saddle used by the Mounted Patrol division. Admission is free. Call 297-2391.

‘It’s a fairness issue’

A 9-year legal struggle involving LGBT rights might finally come to a conclusion


News

Greg Horton
Gay Phillips and Sue Barton have been a couple for 29 years. For the past nine, they’ve been fighting the state of Oklahoma to recognize their marriage. They joined a federal lawsuit filed by Tulsans Mary Bishop and Sharon Baldwin in 2004 after state voters passed a same-sex marriage ban.

The Flaming Lips — Peace Sword


Indie

Zach Hale
The Flaming Lips’ longevity has allowed them to cover a lot of sonic terrain over the years. Yet they’ve arguably become more adventurous with age, jeopardizing a good portion of their fan base in favor of fascinatingly bleak experiments in sound, beginning with Embryonic in 2009 and, more recently, The Terror.
