POSTED ON JULY 22, 2009:
Teeny Tiny. If you're a fan of art that makes you say, "No way a person drew that!" then you won't want to miss the final days of Peggy Preheim's exhibit "Little Black Book" on display at the Philbrook Museum of Art, 2727 S. Rockford Road. Preheim's pencil drawings are so small it can be difficult to concede that the human hand is responsible for such detail. Philbrook provides magnifying glasses for this exhibit so you may see the unbelievable detail. Preheim's exhibit concludes July 26 as does the parallel exhibit "From Michelangelo to Annibale Carracci" featuring drawings from Madrid's Museo del Prado from 1520--1620. Call 749-7941 or visit philbrook.org.
Idolpalooza. American Idols Live is back at the BOK Center, 200 S. Denver Ave., with the top ten contestants from Season Eight of the show. Adam Lambert, Allison Iraheta, Anoop Desai, Danny Gokey, Kris Allen, Lil Rounds, Matt Giraud, Megan Joy, Michael Sarver and Scott MacIntyre are performing with doors at 5:30pm and the show starting at 7pm. And no, there isn't a way to text your favorite Idol of the night to the big data center in the sky. Call 894-4200 or visit bokcenter.com.
Tear. Well this is it. The Tulsa Talons play their last game of the regular season taking on the Amarillo Dusters at the BOK Center, 200 S. Denver Ave. Yes, college football season is right around the corner, but it's never fun saying goodbye to the Talons. Tonight is "Tulsa Gives Night" which is designed to raise awareness and funds for Muscular Dystrophy Association. MDA children will be involved in the coin toss and you can make a donation to the donation buckets passed around tonight. Kickoff is at 7pm. Call 894-4200 or visit tulsatalons.net.
Masked Men. Tonight at Cain's Ballroom, 423 N. Main, Hollywood Undead rocks with stage with opening acts Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Mest and The Sleeping. Hollywood Undead caters to fans of heavy rock with big gang vocal choruses and plenty of poppy hooks that get caught in your head. Whether you're a fan of Slipknot, Rise Against or Seether, Hollywood Undead has at least one track for you. Doors open at 7pm with the show at 8pm. Call 584-2306 or visit cainsballroom.com.
Fore a Cause. Youth of Heart is hosting its Annual Golf Tournament today and golfers as well as sponsors are needed. Youth at Heart provides educational and recreational after-school and summer programs for kids 6-18 who live in Tulsa's public housing communities and low-income apartment complexes. The tournament takes place at the Golf Club of Oklahoma, 20400 E. 141st Street, Broken Arrow. Registration and breakfast starts at 8:30am. Play golf and help kids have a better life, what more could you do on a Monday? Call 493-7311 or visit www.youthatheart.org.
The New Black. It's really no surprise that Pink Rock 'n Roll Lounge, 112 E. 18th St., won two Absolute Best of Tulsa awards last week, one for "Best Hook-up Bar" and one for "Hottest Bar Staff." Pink is definitely the place to go on 18th and Boston to find the hottest people in Tulsa including the good folks serving the booze. Pink has Trashy Thursdays where you can really let your hair down and Dirty Fridays with free beer and no cover for the ladies until midnight. Visit myspace.com/pinkrokbar.
Peace, Love and All That Crap. Tulsa isn't exactly known for its free-spiritedness or drum circle gatherings (although we do have them), but that doesn't mean we can't appreciate a good Hippiefest every now and then. The Turtles, Chuck Negron, Felix Cavaliere, Moutain (pictured), Badfinger and more perform. Catch this celebration of flower power at the SpiritBank Event Center, 106th and Memorial. This music defined a generation, so don't miss this chance to take a trip back in time and get downright funky. Doors open at 6pm and the show starts at 7pm. Visit spiritbankeventcenter.com.
Colorful. Opening tonight at LivingArts, 308 S. Kenosha Ave., is SK Duff's "Inside-R-OUT." Duff's work has caused quite a stir in Tulsa before. Duff is from Tulsa but now works mainly in New York. This latest exhibit by Duff is inspired by his recent work with elementary students and the naivety he saw in them. The opening is from 6-9pm, with an artist talk at 7pm. If you enjoy Duff's art, come back tomorrow night for a spoken word performance at 8pm. Call 585-1234 or visit www.livingarts.org for more.
