Them Hounds — Them Hounds


Rock

Zach Hale
If there’s one defining characteristic of modern blues rock, it’s that the songs often are constructed around the band’s instrumental strengths.

Nina Medley — Red Dirt Redemption


Eclectic

Louis Fowler
Bethany blues chanteuse Nina Medley is, if the title track of her latest album is to be believed, “worn out on the Delta blues” and just looking for some “red dirt redemption.”

Saloony tunes

Having made its name through the blues, the revamped JJ’s Saloon takes a more inclusive approach to booking.


Music

Tres Savage
Guitarist Scott Keeton has a simple way of describing JJ’s Saloon at 2525 N.W. 10th: “Cool people, cold drinks, hot music.”

The Younglings — The Younglings


Rock

Joshua Boydston
Oklahoma’s own The Younglings aren’t so much breaking new ground as they are building on a solid foundation with their latest self-titled album, but the duo does a rather convincing strut in The Black Keys’ shoes in a Rubber Factory-worthy assembly line of tried and true blues rock tunes.

Soul Williams — Love, Soul: The Musical Letters Collective, Part 1


Hip Hop/Rap

Louis Fowler
It’s easy to see why many secular types consider Christian music a joke. Badly produced, pre-programmed Casio backbeats and plastic saxophones providing the soundtrack to a holier-than-thou message inspires snickers and winces from even those least jaded. OKC’s Soul Williams aims to and succeeds in knocking some sense into that rightfully stereotyped scene.

Bricktown Blues and BBQ Festival


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

Blues and barbecue go together like wine and cheese, Simon & Garfunkel and legs and eggs — which is to say, each is good on their own, but they’re even better when paired with one another. Bricktown Blues and BBQ Festival features some of the finest local offerings in each of these departments, which you can see/hear/taste for yourself 4 p.m.- midnight Friday and 2 p.m.-midnight Saturday on the corner of Sheridan and Oklahoma avenues. Admission is free. Call 236-4143 or visit bricktownokc.com.
