Do I hear a pub crawl?

Because what better, more appropriate way is there to support Norman Music Festival?

Five downtown Norman bars have teamed up to host a pub crawl benefit for Norman Music Festival Friday night. And you’re invited!

All it costs to hop from bar to bar before winding up at a show by one of Norman’s loudest, heaviest rock bands, Rainbows Are Free (pictured), is $15 before Friday ($20 the day of). The crawl starts at 9 p.m. and the show starts at 11.

Participating bars are Abner’s Ale House, Bill and Dee’s, Bison Witches, The Garage and The Blue Bonnet Bar, which also will host the show. Patrons may also redeem their tickets at the Blue Bonnet for a pub crawl finisher T-shirt, once it’s validated by all five bars.

It being Halloween, costumes are strongly encouraged. For those dressing up, there’ll be contests and prizes awarded. Proceeds go to support NMF, which is of course, a free music festival. So go drink a few beers and help keep it that way!

T.I. — Trouble Man: Heavy Is the Head


Hip Hop/Rap

Ryan Querbach
Atlanta rapper T.I. has released Trouble Man: Heavy Is the Head, his eighth studio album and the first since his most recent stint in prison. The title is no doubt a reference to his legal troubles on federal weapons charges, but it also makes reference to the Marvin Gaye song of the same name, which is sampled in the album’s opening track.

Seek it


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff
Seeking a hard dose of heavy metal? Seek no further than The Parish, 1757 N.W. 16th. At 5 p.m. Friday, the venue hosts DIY Dallas act Seeker. This sample lyric from “Pale Death” proves their head-banging cred: “I’ll rip it out and feed it to the beast / Now your body will lay lifeless.” Told ya. Tickets are $8. Call 474-1783 or visit theparishokc.com.

It’s not cool to make fun of someone’s body. It’s less cool to do it in print ... especially if you want to keep your job.

Heavy Traffic

It's a Heavy cartoon.


Comedy

Patrick Crain

Ah, the early days of video stores. Most every city, burg and/or township had that one glorious store with one copy of everything. OKC had Kaleidoscope Video Stores; Mid-Del had Bob’s Video; and in the dark regions of Bob’s Video sat the “adult” movies which were basically comprised of Paul Morrissey’s Flesh For Frankenstein and Blood For Dracula and Ralph Bakshi’s two X-rated cartoons, Fritz the Cat and Heavy Traffic. Oh, how I wanted to see all these movies! Of course, as an eleven-year-old, I never had the gumption to try to rent any of them out of fear I would be ejected from the store and banned for life.

Honeylark — Heavy


Folk

Louis Fowler
The Oklahoma City music scene has been abuzz about Honeylark the past couple of weeks. Once you listen to their latest release, Heavy, you realize the hype is deadly justifiable.
