LIVE on the Music

Posted by: Greater Oklahoma City Chamber on Tuesday, July 15, 2014 at 12:00:00 am

If you’re like us, the phrase “live music” is like music to your ears … OK, maybe that’s not the best simile in this situation, but you know what we’re saying. And OKC’s live music culture continues to develop into a major part of life here. As Huey Lewis can attest, the “heart of rock ‘n’ roll is still beating” in Oklahoma City. (Aaaaand scene.) Anyway, the awesome part is that you don’t have to be a full-on hipster / scenester-type to enjoy the blossoming live music scene in Oklahoma City.

There are plenty of well-known, friendly and accessible venues hosting cool shows all over town. Need ideas? Check out this listing . And besides that, don’t forget about spots like The Conservatory, The Blue Note, Opolis, the Diamond Ballroom, the Chevy Bricktown Events Center, the ACM@UCO Performance Lab, the Bricktown Music Hall, and more. Where to get info on what shows are on this weekend? Besides sites like bandsintown or songkick, many a local in OKC will utilize the Oklahoma Gazette’s calendar to keep them up-to-speed on who is playing where. You can also purchase alcoholic beverages at many of the venues, which is a plus. Bring your own earplugs, though.

But to whom to listen? Besides actually getting out there and checking out some bands, the easy way to keep up with what’s going down on the OKC music scene includes listening to the Oklahoma Rock Show on the radio or on the computer, and checking out their playlists on the Spotify (and you can also follow @oklahomarock on the Twitter).

Prefer concerts of the outdoor variety? Oh snap, hum and dingereedoo, we’ve got you covered there too, you alfresco aficionado. Both the Downtown Airpark and the Zoo Amphitheater have a full slate of concerts for the summer and beyond, besides summertime staples Sunday Twilight Concert Series at the Myriad Gardens, LIVE on the Plaza at the (you guessed it, Sherlock) Plaza District, and Lower Bricktown Live at (surely you see where this is going at this point) Lower Bricktown Plaza.

What are your favorite live music tips for OKC? Let us know in the comments. Happy listening!
