Here’s a list of confirmed acts for this year’s Memorial Day fest.
Having covered Pryor’s Rocklahoma for certain competing publications in the past, I am both highly aware of and terrified by the sort of person who eagerly attends the festival, which is sort of an amalgamation of sweaty, cock-rocking big-billers of the past with the most vulgar alt-rockers of the more recent past and more modern rockers who aren’t quite pretty enough to get on the Warped Tour.
That said, here’s this year’s lineup, announced at 8 a.m. today. Note that The Darkness (yes, thatThe Darkness) is included in the May 25-27 bill. Road trip, to northeast Oklahoma, anybody?
• Rob Zombie • Chickenfoot featuring Joe Satriani, Kenny Aronoff, Michael Anthony and Sammy Hagar • Creed • Megadeth • Slash • Queensrÿche • Chevelle • Theory of a Deadman • Jackyl • Puddle of Mudd • Hellyeah • P.O.D. • Volbeat • 10 Years • Cavo • Adelitas Way • Black Stone Cherry • Pop Evil • Red • The Darkness • Art of Dying • Trivium • Aranda • Redlight King • James Durbin • Janus • New Medicine • Rival Sons • Anti-Mortem • Gypsy Pistoleros • Wildstreet • Firstryke • Black Tora • Sunset Riot • The Glitter Boys • Fist of Rage • Switchblade Scarlett • Krank • and more

Oklahoma City University closes its theater season with a steampunk version of the cutthroat musical Sweeney Todd. You’ll
never see a more melodious, maniacal barber than at 8 p.m. Friday and
Saturday, or 3 p.m. Sunday at the Bass School of Music’s Kirkpatrick
Auditorium, 2501 N. Blackwelder. Tickets are $12-$25. Show up early for a
free curtain talk with director David Herendeen 45 minutes before each
show. Call 208-5227 or visit okcu.edu/music.

Ever heard of an athlete having that “killer instinct?” As fans, we love
it when our favorite team or player dominates the opposition and then
stomps on their proverbial throats. (Just ask college football fans.) We
want our faves to win, and it doesn’t matter how they do it.
