Midtown Music on Packard’s Rooftop


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

As far as local music goes, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better lineup than the one at this weekend’s miniature festival Midtown Music, which features Power Pyramid, Gentle Ghost, Brothels, Sonic Violence and Bored Wax. The fact that the dudes from The SpyFM’s “You’re Welcome” will broadcast live is just icing on the indie-rock cake. The broadcast begins at 5 p.m. and the music at 5:30 p.m. on the rooftop at Packard’s New American Kitchen, 201 NW 10th St. Admission is free. Call 605-3771 or visit packardsokc.com.

Stoning gays ... to death?


News

Gazette staff
Scott Esk, Republican candidate for House District 91 in south Oklahoma City, won’t come out and say it. Wait. He already said it. The deal is he doesn’t want to repeat it. But he just did. He believes in biblical morality. OK. That’s not so bad.

Admission is free. Call 236-4143 or visit bricktownokc.com.

OKG7 things to do

The last year has been one for the LGBTQ record books: Our state’s ban on same-sex marriage was deemed unconstitutional (pending appeal), three same-sex couples were issued licenses through the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes in November and The Boom’s Gospel Brunch still hasn’t been shut down by local officials. So get your tushes out to OKC Pride’s 2014 events, beginning with a Block Party 7 p.m. Friday and concluding with the 2014 Pride Parade 6 p.m. Sunday. It all goes down on, er, at the NW 39th Street Enclave around 39th Street and Pennsylvania Ave. Admission is free. Visit okcpride.org.

Oh, you can do stand-up? That’s cool. But can you do stand-up in several different languages like Eddie Izzard?

Gods and Heroes


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

“Masterpiece” isn’t a word to be used liberally; it’s reserved for things like the Mona Lisa or many of the works from the École des Beaux-Arts, one of Europe’s most revered art academies. The latter happen to be on display in Gods and Heroes: Masterpieces from the École des Beaux-Arts, Paris, a new exhibition showcasing some of the most astonishing pieces to ever come out of France. The exhibit opens Saturday at Oklahoma City Museum of Art, 415 Couch Drive, and runs through September 14. Admission is free for members and $5-$12 for nonmembers. Call 236-3100 or visit okcmoa.com.

See them with other questionably named acts Cheap Girls and Dogbreth 8 p.m. Monday at The Conservatory, 8911 N. Western Ave. Tickets are $12. Call 607-4805 or visit conservatoryokc.com.
