Buffalo roams

And rocks! For the third year in a row, The Buffalo Lounge will showcase Oklahoma musicians at the South by Southwest festival.


Music

Stephen Carradini
In less than a week, a small army of Oklahomans will invade Texas with the intent of taking over one of its storied events. The revolution will not be televised (what is these days?), but it will get loud: For the third consecutive year, the Oklahoma Film & Music Office will bring The Buffalo Lounge to Austin’s South by Southwest (SXSW), Monday through Wednesday, March 13.

SXSW 2013: Tallows

When experimental rock’s Tallows takes the stage, don’t fret.


Music

Stephen Carradini
Fret-tapping is an alternate way of playing guitar that creates very percussive rhythms out of melodic sounds. Instead of strumming each note, the guitar player taps a finger from the fretting hand against each note on the fretboard. The mesmerizing rapid hand movements are a neat side benefit.

SXSW 2013: Guardant / The Del Toros / The Kamals / Josh Sallee

Just Joshin'. And you?


Music

Stephen Carradini
It only took Guardant 30 seconds to win me completely over to its team. The quintet’s hyperactive, quirky dance pop is simply irresistible.

Okie music, Texas flavor

South by Southwest is the largest festival of its kind in the world. Oklahoma’s contribution to the Austin-based event brings the world’s focus onto our state, too.


Music

Zach Hale and Jennifer Chancellor
Everything’s bigger in Texas, they say. From the skyscrapers adorning its cityscapes to the vast plains stretching from the panhandle to the Gulf of Mexico, the adage largely holds true.
