Flowering Herbs. Keepin' it real on Thursday nights, Sage Flower brings a lively mix of original tunes to Tiny Lounge, 818 E. 3rd St. The singer-songwriter has a new album coming out soon, Arrow, featuring some of Tulsa's best known musicians. Sage's loyal German Shepard graces the stage too, keeping his best buddy company throughout the show. Not sure if the dog helped with the album or not. Also, if you were curious, Sage Flower is his real name. Head downtown tonight for an all-around cozy experience. Bundle up.
Pagans Unite! It all began centuries ago in Ireland with the Druids. One of four holy days in Celtic society, Halloween, or Samhuinn, was meant to let everyone shed the confines of society and let chaos rule - if only for a short time. The celebration served to mitigate resentment toward rigid class structures of the day. So, friends, get into costume and out on the town. There's so much going on tonight in terms of good music music, spook houses and parties of all kinds. No excuses this year. Halloween's on a Friday and it's time to party responsibly. Visit the Events section on page 45 and find the Halloween listings.
Where's My Oil Boy? You can find all 21 of them tonight, playin' rough as usual. The Tulsa Oilers take on the Wichita Thunder at the BOK Center, 200 S. Denver. The game begins at 7:35pm. It was a bittersweet season opener for the Oilers last weekend- the team saw its largest crowd to date, the second largest in CHL history. However, the Oklahoma City Blazers came out on top, with a 5-1 victory.

Hemispheres in Harmony. For a long time, Eastern and Western culture have been seen as two separate, often irreconcilable entities. Rudyard Kipling once predicted that the two would never meet. Head over to Philbrook, 2727 S. Rockford Road, this afternoon to explore another point of view in "East Meets West - From Victorian Paintings to Modern Culture." University of Tulsa English professor, Joseph Kestner, examines Victorian views of Middle Eastern culture and their ramifications. The lecture reveals a surprising Victorian penchant for paintings from the Middle East. The presentation lasts from 2-3pm. Check out www.philbrook.org for more.
Just Another Brick, Mate. Well, it ain't Roger Waters, but it's close enough. Come down to the Brady Theater, 105 W. Brady St., tonight to experience The Australian Pink Floyd Show playing The Wall. The successful tribute band comes to Tulsa all the way from Adelaide, South Australia. Formed in 1988, they are the only Pink Floyd tribute band to have played for an original band member. In 1996, TAPFS played for David Gilmour's 50th birthday. Show starts at 8pm. Tickets are on sale at Reasor's or Starship. For more information, go to www.bradytheater.com.

Reduce, Reuse, Imagine. Open your mind and take a trip to Bartlesville. Take the time to ponder relatively new concepts presented by the Price Tower Arts Center, 510 Dewey Ave. "Imaginative Qualities of Actual Things" features everyday items rendered into art after their utility has expired. The exhibit ultimately encourages attendees to consider the environmental impact of consumer goods. The works are visually stunning in their own right; even the casual viewer will be fascinated by the creative transformation of common objects like audio tapes, floppy disks, jigsaw puzzle pieces and more.
