OK Go – The Live Video Tour (Kalamazoo State Theatre)

Treadmill dancing MTV stars OK Go will be playing Kalamazoo State Theatre on April 28th! Since forming in 1998, OK Go have become known as much for their elaborate music videos as for the smart, melodic pop songs they accompany. When their 2006 dance on treadmills went viral, helping fuel the explosion of the fledgling YouTube, the band leaned in, embraced the dissolution of creative boundaries in the digital era, and followed up with a decade of wildly creative, genre-defying videos that have earned over 300 million views and get shown in art museums more often than on MTV.

Fun Fact: Did you know local dude Tim Nordwind of Loy Norrix class of 1994 is an OK Go member? True story.

David Sedaris at The Kalamazoo State

With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, David Sedaris has become one of America’s pre-eminent humor writers. He is the master of satire and one of today’s most observant writers addressing the human condition.

Calypso, his latest collection of essays, is a New York Times best-seller, and a Washington Post Best Book of the Year. The audiobook of Calypso was nominated for a 2019 Grammy in the Best Spoken Word Album category. Described as beach reading for people who detest beaches, required reading for those who loathe small talk and love a good tumor joke, Calypso is simultaneously Sedaris’s darkest and warmest book yet–and it just might be his very best.

Beloved for his personal essays and short stories, David Sedaris is the author of Barrel Fever, Holidays on Ice, Naked, Me Talk Pretty One Day, Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim, When You Are Engulfed in Flames, Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls, and Theft By Finding: Diaries (1977-2002). He is the author of Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Modest Bestiary, a collection of fables with illustrations by Ian Falconer. Each of these books was an immediate bestseller. He was also the editor of Children Playing Before a Statue of Hercules: An Anthology of Outstanding Stories. His pieces regularly appear in The New Yorker and have twice been included in “The Best American Essays.” There are over ten million copies of his books in print and they have been translated into 25 languages. In 2018 he was awarded the Terry Southern Prize for Humor, as well as the Medal for Spoken Language from the American Academy of Arts and Letters.
