Amanda Earhart — Tell Me What You Want


Pop

Alyssa Grimley
Amanda Earhart’s sound is hard to categorize. Think today’s pop, but with fewer thump-thump club beats and synthesizers, traded for more undoctored vocals and guitar. Throw in a dash of country twang and a sprinkling of piano and violin, and that’s a start.

‘Hazzard’ warning

Just a good ol’ boy, never meanin’ no harm, actor Tom Wopat crashes the UCO Jazz Lab.

Fresh from his “hey, isn’t that Tom Wopat?” appearance in Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained, actor Tom Wopat will perform two concerts Saturday at the UCO Jazz Lab, 100 E. Fifth in Edmond.

Although he’s promoting his brand-new CD, I’ve Got Your Number, and is a two-time Tony nominee for his Broadway pursuits, Wopat is perhaps best-known for playing Luke Duke on the early ’80s TV hit The Dukes of Hazzard.

But don’t just take my word for it.

“Audiences will definitely remember Tom Wopat as one of the rowdy Dukes of Hazzard boys, but he is so much more than that,” said Greg White, director and producer of UCO’s Broadway Tonight series.

The shows are scheduled for 6:30 and 9:30 p.m. Tickets are $40. For more information, call 974-3375 or visit uco.edu/cfad/events. —Rod Lott

Samantha Crain — Kid Face


Folk

Zach Hale
Take away the album name — and its cover — and you’d never know Kid Face was released by a 26-year-old. The most alluring weapon in her arsenal, Samantha Crain’s voice resides somewhere between Nico’s husky croon and Joni Mitchell’s tuneful elegance.

The Grown Ups — Dark Hearts


Rock

Zach Hale
It's pretty clear that The Grown Ups know what good music sounds like. When the band ceases its emulation of good music and lets its creativity flow naturally, the Oklahoma City collective's new album, Dark Hearts, offers flashes of genuine talent.
