Asleep at the Wheel, presented by Signature Symphony
As part of its ridiculously fun "TTCU Signature Pops" series, Tulsa's Signature Symphony brings the legendary western-swing groups to town this weekend for a night that will certainly live up to the "Pops" part of the series' moniker.
AatW has been doing its thing for more than four decades, winning nine Grammys and producing nearly 30 albums along the way, all the while serving as ambassadors of the music by and inspired by Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys.
October 19 and 20 at the VanTrease PACE.

Louis C. K. at the Brady Theater
Louis CK is one of those love-him-or-hate-him comedians. As the writer and star of the comedy "Louis," and as a road warrior extraordinaire who has been doing standup since the late-'80s, he's a comedian's comedian. He's written for Letterman, Conan, and Chris Rock, and he's the writer and star of his own darkly funny show, Louie.
He brings his caustic humor to the Brady Friday night. Fans will be delighted. The easily-offended will be horrified. The sold-out show kicks off at 7pm.
