VOTD: A Norman double-feature!

Watch new videos from locals Broncho and Shi++y/Awesome!

Sorry for the lack of post-age the last couple of days- I've been scrambling to catch up with work, post-ACL when I wasn't busy mourning the late retirement of one of America's greatest bands. It's not the end of the world as we know it, I guess; I feel fine. Onward to the videos!

Another Delo-helmed Broncho vid is reason to celebrate. Watch Ryan Lindsey get chased by stuff like growing up, responsibility and all that other terrible junk, represented by his murderous bandmates. Cool graphic work, guys!



Shitty/Awesome once again live up to their name with this hilarious, low-grade spacesuit romp at Norman's annual medieval fair. Those suits.

Happy Record Store Day Black Friday!

Break open the piggy bank, vinyl heads!


Music

Louis Fowler
While everyone with normal lives will be buying bargain-basement trinkets and low-end electronics for their loved ones at 3 a.m. on Black Friday at their nearest SuperTarget, hardcore music geeks will be sleeping in.

Colourmusic — A Very Special Colourmusic Christmas: Vol. 1


Indie

Joshua Boydston

Oklahoma is quickly becoming the indie Christmas music capital of the world, it seems, with yearly compilation albums featuring everyone from Stardeath and White Dwarfs to Graham Colton. So it makes sense that Colourmusic — freak-poppers hailing from Stillwater — would craft a full album of original, offbeat holiday tunes themselves.

A Keene eye

Local shop Guestroom Records has become synonymous with Steve Keene’s album-minded paintings, which appeal to music and visual art enthusiasts alike.


Visual Arts

Devon Green
If you wander into Guestroom Records in either Oklahoma City or Norman and aren’t too focused on the jaw-dropping amount of vinyl on display, you’ll notice a particular artist takes up a lot of space on the walls. Steve Keene’s vibrant paintings are frenetic renderings of beloved records, from Nirvana’s MTV Unplugged in New York to Mission of Burma’s ONoffON. They are, without a doubt, one of the store’s best-selling items, with hundreds of his paintings sold to local music and art fans.
