The innovative feminist icon takes the stage at 8:30 p.m. Thursday at Newcastle Casino, 2457 Highway 62 Service Road in Newcastle. Call 387-6013 or visit mynewcastlecasino.com.

Go Limp

Don’t let the name fool you; local punks Limp Wizurds write some seriously strong tunes.


Music

Joshua Boydston

You probably think of the Fred Durst-fronted, rap rock powerhouse Limp Bizkit when you hear the name of Oklahoma City punk outfit Limp Wizurdz.

It’s no accident.

Poolboy — Soda Kids


Rock

Zach Hale
The Oklahoma City metro has a thriving garage rock scene. With seasoned acts like Broncho and Copperheads carrying the modern-day torch, the way has been paved for a flock of gritty, young, guitar-centric acts. But nascent Norman trio Poolboy has a knack for riotous hooks that few of its contemporaries can boast.
