Play Like a Girl. Is your team out of the NFL playoffs? Still need your sports fix? Marshall University has come all the way from West Virginia -- you'll survive a jaunt up to city center. The Golden Hurricane women's basketball team is itching to prove they've got what it takes in this Conference USA match-up. The game starts at 7pm; visit tulsahurricane.com for tickets.
It's definitely not a variety show. Except that it is. Except that it isn't. This show is best described as indescribable. The Calamities Present: An Unholy Mess are putting on enough original songs to fill an album and execute it throughout each of the acts of the show. You definitely don't want to miss this show. The antics begin at 8pm. Call 918-633-8666 for tickets or more info.
