PR Newmen & Sweet Talkers

7:00 PM19:00

PR Newmen & Sweet Talkers

PR NEWMAN is the psuedonym of Spencer Garland, former co-leader of defunct glam-rock revivalists Berkshire Hounds. The psuedonym itself is short for "Punkrock Randy Newman," in reference to Spencer's knack for melodic hooks and sardonic wit. On "Turn Out," Spencer's debut under his new name, he diversifies his former band's sound with nods to psych-pop, alt-country, and R&B. Fans of Of Montreal, White Denim, and Unknown Mortal Orchestra will greatly enjoy PR NEWMAN's music.

"Turn Out" (private album stream) = https://soundcloud.com/devilduck-records/sets/turn-out/s-Ik23g

"But No" (official music video) = https://youtu.be/LY5F-c2niYA

"Hey Hey, Last All Day" (live, 2017) = https://youtu.be/GaDMMSKY1nY?t=39s

Sweet Talkers are the millennial's answer to bands like The Killers, New order, and Joy Division. Their songs focus on topics such as killer gamblers, neon lit adultery, and toxic first loves. Their sound consist of overdriven guitars and rich synths. Founded in Oklahoma City, this band's goal is to sweet talk you into loving them.

Keyhole Nebula: Works by Derrick Adams

Keyhole Nebula: Works by Derrick Adams

Join us downtown at the August 2nd Friday Norman Art Walk for
Keyhole Nebula: A Solo Exhibition by Derrick Adams!

Feast your eyes on some ooey gooey inkings and milky smooth paintings! Enjoy some refreshments and groove to some stellar tunes provided by:
BABY CHEETO
DJ BIFURIOUS

Check out some of Derrick's work here:
https://www.instagram.com/mlqtst

Artist Statement:
My work for "Keyhole Nebula" explores the esoteric via the subjective lens of self, with a hint of heretical humor. Otherworldly characters represent various archetypes in geometric and cosmic settings, playing with scale and dimension. My goal as an artist is embracing change and ultimately arriving at some sort of truth, subjective or otherwise. I try to work in a stream-of-consciousness mode when creating the sketch, in order to coerce the hidden to reveal itself.

Artist Bio:
Derrick Adams crafts illustrations that draw from the surreal and the mystical. The Norman-based artist uses ink and acrylic to create his otherworldly characters. Since starting art from an early age, his work draws heavy inspiration from 90's cartoonists and comic book artists. From learning to draw while watching shows like Rocko's Modern Life, his work has evolved alongside popular culture. Derrick works as a screen printer and graphic designer at Bigfoot Creative. He received his Bachelor's of Fine Art with an emphasis in printmaking and drawing from The University of Oklahoma. He also enjoys making street art paste-ups of his characters in his free time.

Patriots Opera / Forced into Femininity / Blair Summers

Join us at Resonator for a night of performance by artists from thingNY (NYC), Jill Flanagan from (Chicago), and Blair Summers (OKC)

$5-10 donation encouraged for the touring artists.

July 16th, 7pm-10pm

'Patriots' 

  http://www.thingny.com/patriots.html  A half-hour piece of music-theatre has become an all-too-real reflection of today's bad behavior surrounding issues of immigration and national identity. Young and Pinto collaboratively created the text, music, and staging, scoring the piece for their own voices, violin, percussion, a turntable, samples, and lots of cardboard boxes. In …Patriots…, instrumental music alternates with sung and spoken words, zany and humorous topical quips alternate with personal, pointed critiques of the political zeitgeist, fully notated sections merge into structured musical and textual improvisations, and tonal harmonies mix with startling, untraditional musical effects.

 Forced into Femininity  https://hausumountain.bandcamp.com/album/heterochromea   Jill Lloyd Flanagan’s performance Forced into Femininity has devolved from being an emotional torture anti-drag act into her present condition of serving as as electronic drum set made out of various children’s keyboards. The music remains about the ecological death of the earth, The burden of shared grief set at our feet by capitalism, transphobia ad animal cruelty. She has released “Heterochromea” on Hausu Mountain Records and in the works is a new release “Erraticism” On Pop Nihil. She was also in the bands Coughs, Learned Helplessness and currently plays in CB Radio Gorgeous in Chicago.
