In order to get students and the public alike better acquainted with the local music scene, the University of Oklahoma’s Campus Activities Council Concert Series presents Sooner Soundcheck.
The music mini-festival will take place Friday off Asp Avenue, between the Adams and Walker dorms on the OU campus. Seven bands will play throughout the day and into the night.
Derek Knowlton, vocalist and guitarist for The Pretty Black Chains, said that it’s good for people to know what other kind of music is out there.
“It’s important for people to be aware of local bands so that they can be supported by the community as much as possible,” he said. “We like to branch out and play wherever we can to get our music out there. I think this show is going to be a lot of fun.”
With free admission, Sooner Soundcheck kicks off at 3 p.m. and continues to 11:30 p.m. Others plugging in include The Hex, Sherree Chamberlain, Jabee, The Workweek, Josh Sallee and Skating Polly.
