Ahamefule Oluo had one hell of a bad year (involving family, love, and disease), and to try to feel better, he did a lot of things he shouldn't have. It's over now, but in its honor comes Reverie (Now I'm Fine), an hour-long experimental pop opera to make its debut tonight with okanomodé (the musician responsible for lyrics and vocals) and the New Seattle Brass Ensemble (a group formed expressly for this piece). Oluo selected the musicians from the worlds of classical, jazz, and indie rock in Seattle, and he could do that because he's a gigging fool around this city—chances are you've heard him, too, just never knew his name. Finally, the sideman comes up front. With Spekulation. (Lo-Fi Performance Gallery, 429 Eastlake Ave E, 849-6082. 9 pm, $10 adv/$12 DOS, 21+.)
