Don't tell anyone, but in my first year of high school, I owned a couple of Simply Red cassettes, purchased from Sound Warehouse. If you clicked on the link to read this review, it's likely you did, too.

The (off)beat goes on

OKC offers many music venues off the beaten path.


Music

Phil Bacharach
Randy Cassimus has spent years cranking out rock ’n’ roll in bars and clubs throughout Oklahoma City. He’s used to playing over the clink of beer glasses and shouts of liquored-up patrons when he plays with local band The Hi-Def Howlers. So he wasn’t quite sure what to expect when he booked an acoustic gig at a bookstore.

Matt Stansberry & the Romance — Let’s Brighten It Up


Pop

Joshua Boydston
The cover of the seven-song EP Let’s Brighten It Up is a telling one. Oklahoma City’s Matt Stansberry is midbounce, dressed in a tailored suit and black-rimmed glasses à la Elvis Costello or Buddy Holly, clutching what looks like a bright-red Les Paul guitar. Stansberry is true to form, as polished and accomplished as ever, and his new band, The Romance, adds a little pep to his step.
