Check these 'Hot' tips

Memorize these seven facts before ‘Hot as Hell,’ cool?

Before banging your head to the music of Rob Zombie, Five Finger Death Punch, Sevendust, Underoath and everybody else playing Sunday’s “Hot as Hell” festival in Tulsa, the organizers would like to share some information. We tore these tips straight from the press release:

1. “RE ENTRY WILL BE ALLOWED WITH TICKET AND WRISTBAND”

2. “MISTING TENTS WILL  BE AVAILABLE”

3. “CROWD WILL BE SPRAYED OFTEN WITH WATER FROM STAGE TO COOL DOWN”

4. “NO BLANKETS, ICE CHESTS, or UMBRELLAS”

5. “STAY HYDRATED”

6. “BRING SUNSCREEN”

7. “WEAR HATS”

Enjoy the show, readers! (Sucks about your umbrella, though, Ms. Poppins!) —Rod Lott

VOTD: Warning: This video may induce vomiting

Watch a dizzying new Matodon clip.

Mastodon’s “The Hunter” comes out Sept. 27 on Reprise Records and the band’s done all the marketing it needs in the form of the ridiculously awesome titles it’s given each one of the album’s 13 tracks (15 on the deluxe edition!).

Here’s “Curl of the Burl,” which, if you’re unaccustomed to spinning and zooming through forests in unpredictable directions, might make you vomit.



The video’s a little boring, but thanks to it, we get to hear a new Mastodon song. I don’t like it quite as much as the first single, “Deathbound,” whose video also blows this one away. In fact, you probably just ought to watch it again.

Do I hear a pub crawl?

Because what better, more appropriate way is there to support Norman Music Festival?

Five downtown Norman bars have teamed up to host a pub crawl benefit for Norman Music Festival Friday night. And you’re invited!

All it costs to hop from bar to bar before winding up at a show by one of Norman’s loudest, heaviest rock bands, Rainbows Are Free (pictured), is $15 before Friday ($20 the day of). The crawl starts at 9 p.m. and the show starts at 11.

Participating bars are Abner’s Ale House, Bill and Dee’s, Bison Witches, The Garage and The Blue Bonnet Bar, which also will host the show. Patrons may also redeem their tickets at the Blue Bonnet for a pub crawl finisher T-shirt, once it’s validated by all five bars.

It being Halloween, costumes are strongly encouraged. For those dressing up, there’ll be contests and prizes awarded. Proceeds go to support NMF, which is of course, a free music festival. So go drink a few beers and help keep it that way!
