After Ben Kilgore finished his set at the Mustache Bash on Wednesday night, a women in the crowd asked me who had just performed.

(I get this question a lot because of how my jeans fit and because I’m holding a camera at every concert ever.)

When I answered with the name Ben Kilgore, the new fan paused and said, “As soon as I heard his voice, I had to sit down and listen.”

I’m sure this had everything to do with the Tulsa-based singer’s commanding voice.

It’s unreal.

But I was most surprised by Kilgore’s thoughtfulness.

I approached him about performing a quick song in the Spy Wagon, and it seemed like his world stopped for a minute.

He got quiet, as if the songs he knew were battling for position in his head and heart.

I’m glad he picked Otis Redding’s “These Arms of Mine.”

Not only was it a highlight of his set, but also Kanye West/Jay-Z’s track “Otis” is fresh in my mind.

Oddly enough, you can hear one of Kanye’s earliest songs playing in the background near the end of this song.

No matter who’s covering Redding, you’re in for a treat.

Here’s the song on Vimeo, if you are all fancy like that.

This Oklahoma City-based band puts its pants on every morning like everyone else, with the help of a doctor.

Not really, but we just wanted to give you an idea of the silliness involved with Dr. Pants.

Frontman David Broyles falls somewhere between Weezer’s River Cuomo and Weird Al, which means you’re going to have some trouble getting his songs out of your head.

Enjoy “Hipster Kids/Sexy Beards” and if you want more Dr. Pants then check them out live.

They are releasing an EP with this song on it June 4.

Here are all the concert details.

Check back later this month for an episode from Stillwater’s Other Lives.

Here’s Dr. Pants’ VDub Session on Vimeo if that’s your thing.

Watch the interview that makes Charlie Sheen look like a sack of eyeless potatoes.

Here’s Peelander-Z’s interview on Vimeo if that’s your thing.
