Raisin’ Cain’s

Duh, Yahoo!: Cain’s Ballroom is a great place to see a show.

Cain’s Ballroom is the reason I’m sitting here, in an office, typing about why Cain’s Ballroom is one of the best places on the planet to see a concert.

Wilco hit my beloved hometown’s hallmark venue during a hot spring night my freshman year of college. My friend Thomas and I drove the two hours from Norman to hear Jeff Tweedy (who wore a seemingly magical white suit stitched with roses) tell stories and sing some America’s finest avant-garde poetry. That night interlaced my love for the band, Cain’s and indie rock in general so tightly together into the fabric of my life that it sorta took on new meaning.

Well, Yahoo! News seems to agree with me today. It named Cain’s the ninth best place in America to see a concert, right up there with New York’s infamous Bowery Ballroom; the gorgeous Red Rocks venue in Morrison, Colo.; and even the Hollywood Bowl. Flip through their online photo gallery and see for yourself.

Commentary

Carly Putnam
In the waning hours of the final day of the 2014 Oklahoma legislative session, in the midst of the debate over Oklahoma’s education standards, Sen. Josh Brecheen, R-Coalgate, used a passage from Toni Morrison’s novel The Bluest Eye as an example of the “evils” of Common Core.
