Hinder — Welcome to the Freakshow


Rock

Joshua Boydston
Oklahoma City’s own Hinder is viciously derided even by butt-rock standards, catching just as much flak as Nickelback and Buckcherry, if not more.

That scream you heard carry across the metro at 8:48 a.m. Dec. 10 was untold thousands of tween girls reacting to Chesapeake Energy Arena’s announcement that Justin Bieber had scheduled a local stop for his “Believe” world tour, for July 2, 2013.

Laura Leighe — The Laura Leighe EP


Pop

Joshua Boydston
Modern pop music is awful: vapid odes to partying, phoned-in love ballads and bastardized house beats bubbling under some flavor-of-the-moment with a prettier face than voice.

Pop it


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff
If you think A-B-C is as easy as 1-2-3, you’d best “Beat It” to the Civic Center Music Hall, 201 N. Walker, for The Music of Michael Jackson. At 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, the revue paying tribute to the late King of Pop promises to “Rock with You,” as James Delisco performs hits from MJ’s entire career. Tickets are $25-$52. Call 842-5387 or visit okcphilharmonic.org.
