Yukon or bust!

Yukon is the center of the musicverse this weekend

Music goes in cycles: Fall is writing season, winter is recording season, spring is release season and summer is tour/shows/music video season. With spring now officially over (weather-wise and calendar-wise), OKS has been taking a much-needed breather. But now it’s time to get out there and rock to the music that you bought/downloaded weeks/months ago. Here’s the rundown.

The major event for the weekend is easily Saturday’s Schwarzstock, although I received word from Doug Schwarz himself that O Fidelis is no longer headlining. Mannachine will pick up those duties. Check the info for the event here.

I was super-excited to hear Austinites Football, etc. at Norman Music Festival, but their drummer broke both his feet (!!) right before the fest. The band canceled, but they’re back now, playing a show Saturday at Bad Granny’s Bazaar with Pswingset, Cedres and Partners. For indie rockers who aren’t up for liability-waiver-necessary festival antics, this is your best bet Saturday.
 
Schwarzers who peter out early could head on over to Grady’s 66 Pub in Yukon, which just opened. The title persona is none other than Grady Cross of Cross Canadian Ragweed. The grand opening was yesterday, with Stoney Larue playing a sold-out show. I’m always down for new venues in the metro, so traipse on out and catch Austin Allsup tonight, Jake Moffatt tomorrow, and Kyle Carter playing a standing gig each Sunday called “Sunday Night Revival.”

Since you won’t be able to see O Fidelis kill it as headliners at Schwarzstock, those jonesing for a fix will have to head down to Opolis in Norman tonight and catch them with The Wurly Birds and The Electric Primadonnas. They’re billing it as a “Time Travel Expo” based on the disparate genres of the three acts.

Finally, Suzanna Choffel, who I raved about over here, will be coming to the Brewhouse in Norman tonight. The Brewhouse is one of my favorite places to watch music, so this promises to be an excellent show all-around.

While you’re here, grab these free MP3s:
“Rainbow Colors” — Wonderful. Self-explanatory.
“Block Party” — MiMosa. Also self-explanatory.
“Glow Worm” — Diva. Glowy indie happiness from a girl who was in Pocahaunted, which both Best Coast and Indian facepaint as a fashion statement burst forth from.
“Get Real Get Right” — Sufjan Stevens. To celebrate the release of the documentary “Make,” Sufjan releases this “Age of Adz” cut for free. You should already own this, but if you don’t …

Meatball mecca

Unpretentious pastas, pizza and salads are served in an appealingly intimate dining room at Gaberino’s in Norman.


Restaurant Reviews

Doug Hill
Right across the street from Norman’s Borders bookstore, Gaberino’s is a welcome addition to the side of town where choices such as the homogenized likes of Red Lobster, On The Border and Olive Garden dominate.
