Recently, Rolling Stone called JD McPherson’s new album “forward-thinking”; Oklahoma Gazette called it “soulful.” What do you call it? If you have no answer, correct that by catching the Broken Arrow musician at 9 p.m. Friday at VZD’s Restaurant & Club, 4200 N. Western. Opening are OKC’s own The Wurly Birds. Tickets are $12-$14. Call 524-4203 or visit

The SweetWater — Moonshine


Joshua Boydston
Oklahoma City rock act The SweetWater works for something wholly unique in its full-length debut, and while it’s a tall order to hone down influences as varied as Queens of the Stone Age, Black Crowes and Alice in Chains, the band does an admirable job of it with Moonshine.
