John Fullbright

Some musicians are just better enjoyed while outdoors, chillin’ on a blanket and drinking a cold beverage. John Fullbright is one of those musicians. The Bearden-based singer-songwriter’s latest album, aptly titled Songs, is chock-full of earthy, intimate folk numbers, which ought to translate just fine to the Great Lawn. See Fullbright — along with food trucks and ice-cold Coop beer — 8 p.m. Friday at Myriad Botanical Gardens, 301 W. Reno Ave. Admission is free. Call 445-7080 or visit myriadgardens.org.

We’re No. — Oh, we’re just bad

Teen drivers in Oklahoma are bad, and we’re not just saying that because we like to act crotchety and shake our fists in the air as cars race past our offices. (Though some of us might thoroughly enjoy such things.)
