ACM@UCO is really working hard to put young musicians into the Oklahoma City scene. The school has just secured two residencies of sorts for its bands at Nonna’s Purple Bar and The Blue Note.
Nonna’s, 124 E Sheridan, will feature two ACM@UCO bands from 7-10 p.m. every Thursday. The Blue Note, 2408 N. Robinson, will host student bands from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. on the first Thursday of every month.
This week (Jan. 27), Nonna’s will feature Elspeth Brown and the jazz/pop of Wunderjazz.
On Feb, 3, Molly Blanton and Taylor Gary will play folky sets at Nonna’s, while Ghostlight Army, Of the Tower and Between the Devil will kick it a bit more loudly at Blue Note.
Support these musicians, Oklahoma City. If we’re lucky, they’ll stick around, and the scene will grow. And more musicians means more music, which means nothing but good things. Not that you shouldn’t be supporting other bands, ‘cause you should. But if Oklahoma City is a good place to be for young musicians, it’s a good place to be for music listeners like you and me.
