For those not about to rock ...

Rocklahoma comes to your home.

Can’t make the trip to Pryor for Rocklahoma this weekend? Bang your head in the air-conditioned comfort of your own home, as HDNet brings the metal to you.

That means HDNet viewers can catch performances by Rains, Blackstone Cherry, Charm City Devils, Puddle of Mudd, Jackyl, Art of Dying, Queensrÿche, Hellyeah and Chickenfoot. Oklahoma City’s own Aranda pictured also is part of that lineup.

In Oklahoma, HDNet can be found on the following channels:
• AT&T U-verse, 1105

• DirecTV , 306
• DISH, 362

The SweetWater — Moonshine


Rock

Joshua Boydston
Oklahoma City rock act The SweetWater works for something wholly unique in its full-length debut, and while it’s a tall order to hone down influences as varied as Queens of the Stone Age, Black Crowes and Alice in Chains, the band does an admirable job of it with Moonshine.

Midwest movies

‘How to’ see free flicks outdoors this summer.

Midwest City, home to Hollywood’s brightest stars!

Well, every Sunday night through Aug. 12, that is. Thanks to the Midwest City Parks and Recreation Department, the community now has Sunset Cinema, a free, outdoor movie series to call its own, beginning 20 minutes after the sun slowly dips below the horizon, like a lover waving goodbye.

While the series began last night with The Muppets, plenty of other titles await your blankets and lawn chairs at Charles J. Johnson Central Park Town Center, 7209 S.E. 29th.

• June 10, Puss in Boots
• June 17, Top Gun
• June 24, How to Train Your Dragon
• July 1, Despicable Me
• July 8, Megamind
• July 15, Madagascar
• July 22, Cars
• July 29, Secretariat
• Aug. 5, Gnomeo & Juliet
• Aug. 12, Grease

Fun fact: Two of those selections star America’s most famous Scientologists. For more information, call 739-1293 or visit midwestcityok.org/sunset-cinemas. —Rod Lott
