Two big entertainment events are planned this year during Southwestern Oklahoma State University's homecoming weekend October 23-24 on the Weatherford campus.

Comedian Demetri Martin, star of Important Things with Demetri Martin on Comedy Central, will kick off the homecoming festivities on Friday night, and Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers will end the busy weekend with a Saturday night concert.

Martin, who was the lead actor in the movie Taking Woodstock, has been a writer for Conan O'Brien and The Daily show with Jon Stewart. His show on Comedy Central is now in its second season. His performance at SWOSU is part of the university's Panorama series.

Advance tickets for the show are $20 for SWOSU students and $30 for non-SWOSU students. Advance tickets for groups of 15 or more are $20. All tickets at the door will be $40.

Tickets are available at the SWOSU Public Relations & Marketing Office, Room 205 of the Administration Building; SWOSU Business Office, Room 109 of the Administration Building; Business Office on the Sayre campus; and Weatherford Daily News. Tickets can also be purchased with a credit card by calling 580.774.3019.

The Saturday night concert with Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers will begin at 10 p.m.  in the Wellness Center following the SWOSU homecoming football game.

The American rock band, headquartered in Arizona, is the only independent band to debut in the Top 10 on Billboard's Internet Sales Chart for six consecutive albums, including two #1 entries.

The white-hot foursome has successfully pioneered a revolutionary new way to create music. Their new CD/DVD, Turbo Ocho, chronicles the amazing creative process of producing eight new songs in eight days. Each song was written, arranged and recorded in a day and upon completion, instantly uploaded to the internet, along with the accompanying day's video log, for thousands of fans to hear and view.

The SWOSU Alumni Association is sponsoring the Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers concert, and admission is free.

Many other events are planned during the SWOSU homecoming weekend including a 5K run, car show, parade, football game and several reunions.
