Lung is a powerful two-piece rock band comprised of Kate Wakefield (electric cello and vocals) and Daisy Caplan (drums).

They were one of Daytrotter’s ‘Top 100 bands for 2018’ and recently worked the crowd into a frenzy at their SXSW 2018 Official Showcase.

Punk Rock Movie Night - American Hardcore
Nov

Punk Rock Movie Night - American Hardcore

Hardcore punk scenes sprouted up across North America in the early 80's. Fueled by boredom, restlessness, and complete dissatisfaction with mainstream music and the saccharine culture it represented, the purveyors of this aggressive and cathartic new art form sought to weaponize sound, assault audiences, and inspire riots.
'American Hardcore' retraces the history of this phenomenon with commentary by those who were there. Not for the faint of heart or easily offended, this 2006 documentary tells it like it was-- ugly, violent, and intrinsically fascinating.
As always, BYO snacks and beverage, sit back, and enjoy the show.

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.
