Red Bull red dirt

More red dirt artists than you can shake a Red Bull at

If you're kickin' about Stillwater right now or plan to be this evening, you should hit up the Red Bull Gypsy Café. Sponsored by the OG energy drink, the "café" is actually a four-venue red dirt country extravaganza. I could talk about how stacked the evening's going to be, or I could just set the stack in front of you:


The College Bar, 319 S. Washington
8:00 pm Monica Taylor, Rick Reiley
9:00 pm Bob Wiles, Brad James
10:00 pm Gene Collier, Travis Kidd
11:00 pm Steve Rice , Jake Moffat

Stonewall Tavern, 115 S. Knoblock
8:00 pm Randy Pease, Don Morris
9:00 pm Mike McClure, Randy Crouch
10:00 pm Susan Herndon, Scott Evans
11:00 pm Joe Baxter, Larry Spears

Eskimo Joe's , 501 W. Elm St.
8:00 pm Ben Han, Greg Jacobs
9:00 pm Kevin Welch, Dustin Welch
10:00 pm Stoney LaRue, John Cooper
11:00 pm Jimmy LaFave, Chris Bell

Outlaws, 501 S. Washington
7:30 pm Bo Phillips, Sam Naifeh
8:30 pm Bill Erickson, Joe Mack
9:30 pm Chuck Dunlap, Don Wood
10:30 pm Tom Skinner, Brad Piccolo
11:30 pm Cody Canada , John Parker Milsap

I'm not going to lie, I thought the 9:00 slot at The College Bar said Bob Wills, and I was about ready for a zombie red dirt show. Zombie novelists, get on this. Thanks.

Yukon or bust!

Yukon is the center of the musicverse this weekend

Music goes in cycles: Fall is writing season, winter is recording season, spring is release season and summer is tour/shows/music video season. With spring now officially over (weather-wise and calendar-wise), OKS has been taking a much-needed breather. But now it’s time to get out there and rock to the music that you bought/downloaded weeks/months ago. Here’s the rundown.

The major event for the weekend is easily Saturday’s Schwarzstock, although I received word from Doug Schwarz himself that O Fidelis is no longer headlining. Mannachine will pick up those duties. Check the info for the event here.

I was super-excited to hear Austinites Football, etc. at Norman Music Festival, but their drummer broke both his feet (!!) right before the fest. The band canceled, but they’re back now, playing a show Saturday at Bad Granny’s Bazaar with Pswingset, Cedres and Partners. For indie rockers who aren’t up for liability-waiver-necessary festival antics, this is your best bet Saturday.
 
Schwarzers who peter out early could head on over to Grady’s 66 Pub in Yukon, which just opened. The title persona is none other than Grady Cross of Cross Canadian Ragweed. The grand opening was yesterday, with Stoney Larue playing a sold-out show. I’m always down for new venues in the metro, so traipse on out and catch Austin Allsup tonight, Jake Moffatt tomorrow, and Kyle Carter playing a standing gig each Sunday called “Sunday Night Revival.”

Since you won’t be able to see O Fidelis kill it as headliners at Schwarzstock, those jonesing for a fix will have to head down to Opolis in Norman tonight and catch them with The Wurly Birds and The Electric Primadonnas. They’re billing it as a “Time Travel Expo” based on the disparate genres of the three acts.

Finally, Suzanna Choffel, who I raved about over here, will be coming to the Brewhouse in Norman tonight. The Brewhouse is one of my favorite places to watch music, so this promises to be an excellent show all-around.

While you’re here, grab these free MP3s:
“Rainbow Colors” — Wonderful. Self-explanatory.
“Block Party” — MiMosa. Also self-explanatory.
“Glow Worm” — Diva. Glowy indie happiness from a girl who was in Pocahaunted, which both Best Coast and Indian facepaint as a fashion statement burst forth from.
“Get Real Get Right” — Sufjan Stevens. To celebrate the release of the documentary “Make,” Sufjan releases this “Age of Adz” cut for free. You should already own this, but if you don’t …

Stoney LaRue — Velvet


Music

Matt Carney

You know you’re listening to a Red Dirt — not a country, or worse, pop-country — album, when a song called “Dresses” hits you in the gut with the lyric “You recklessly abandon me / That’s just the way you are.”

Jimmy LaFave — Depending on the Distance


Country

Joshua Boydston
Few musicians ever get the chance to forge their own path, blazing musical territory previously unexplored. Stillwater singer-songwriter Jimmy LaFave is one of them, helping etch out a place for the Red Dirt genre within the scope of American music.
