We know. It’s hot. It’s summer in Oklahoma. Cool down by sampling cocktails that local bars and restaurants have concocted just for you. Find a nice, air conditioned space or a shaded patio and while away the hours drinking the flavors of summer. You might decide it’s not that bad after all.

A Keene eye

Local shop Guestroom Records has become synonymous with Steve Keene’s album-minded paintings, which appeal to music and visual art enthusiasts alike.


Visual Arts

Devon Green
If you wander into Guestroom Records in either Oklahoma City or Norman and aren’t too focused on the jaw-dropping amount of vinyl on display, you’ll notice a particular artist takes up a lot of space on the walls. Steve Keene’s vibrant paintings are frenetic renderings of beloved records, from Nirvana’s MTV Unplugged in New York to Mission of Burma’s ONoffON. They are, without a doubt, one of the store’s best-selling items, with hundreds of his paintings sold to local music and art fans.
