Looking for some fun in Norman tonight? Fling a ding.
The boys of Long Beach, Calif.’s The Fling must be quite the fans of the Sooner State, as they are following up a late-fall show at The Conservatory with tonight’s set at The Deli, 309 White, Norman.
The Dangerbird Records signees play at 8 p.m. with ever-evolving local rock trio The Pretty Black Chains, showcasing material from “What I’ve Seen” and “When the Madhouses Appear,” both of which were released nationally last year.
The Fling’s brand of classic American indie rock recalls acts both new (Delta Spirit, Deer Tick) and old (Guided by Voices, The Byrds), and several of their Western soul ballads have found their way onto TV shows like “Being Human,” “I Just Want My Pants Back” and “Revenge” in recent months.
Enjoy the video for “What I’ve Seen” standout track “Dogpile,” and then catch it live tonight:
