STILL EXPERIENCING "LOVE & MEMORIES"? O.A.R. -- aka Of a Revolution -- has been jamming for well over a decade.

Club Nokia, 800 W. Olympic Boulevard, Los Angeles.
MISS KITTY'S PARLOUR: Saucy burlesque starring the lovely Angela Ryan takes the centerstage as the fabulous Miss Kitty returns to the Dragonfly.

Friday, January 23, 10PM-2AM. 6510 Santa Monica Boulevard, Los Angeles. 323-466-6111
MIKE EPPS: The hilarious Def Comedy Jam comedian and big-time actor (hello, "Resident Evil"; plus, he'll be playing Richard Pryor in a bio pic) stops by Orange County for a bit of stand-up. Had only a few laughs this week? There's still time to rectify that... Friday, January 23, 8:30PM. The Grove of Anaheim, 2200 E. Katella Avenue, Anaheim. 714-712-2700
WHAT ARE WORDS FOR? Many things, including expressing our joy that '80s-era superstars and oh-so-LA glammed-out new wave outfit Missing Persons are playing in Redondo Beach at Brixton South Bay.
