‘Hazzard’ warning

Just a good ol’ boy, never meanin’ no harm, actor Tom Wopat crashes the UCO Jazz Lab.

Fresh from his “hey, isn’t that Tom Wopat?” appearance in Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained, actor Tom Wopat will perform two concerts Saturday at the UCO Jazz Lab, 100 E. Fifth in Edmond.

Although he’s promoting his brand-new CD, I’ve Got Your Number, and is a two-time Tony nominee for his Broadway pursuits, Wopat is perhaps best-known for playing Luke Duke on the early ’80s TV hit The Dukes of Hazzard.

But don’t just take my word for it.

“Audiences will definitely remember Tom Wopat as one of the rowdy Dukes of Hazzard boys, but he is so much more than that,” said Greg White, director and producer of UCO’s Broadway Tonight series.

The shows are scheduled for 6:30 and 9:30 p.m. Tickets are $40. For more information, call 974-3375 or visit uco.edu/cfad/events. —Rod Lott

Clip art

Some of today’s most innovative and creative music videos come from the Norman directorial duo known as Lamar+Nik.


Joshua Boydston
It’s not uncommon for music video directors to work with budgets ranging from thousands to millions. Norman-based production duo Lamar+Nik made its calling card with $80 worth of glue guns and paint pens and a truckload of cardboard.

Monsters University

The college-set Disney/Pixar prequel graduates without honors.


Phil Bacharach
If Monsters University is any indication of what children think college is like, maybe it’s no wonder that increasing numbers of young people are forgoing higher education. The follow-up to Disney/Pixar 2001’s Monsters, Inc. imagines university life as a suffocating place ruled by mean-spirited cliques and droning professors.
