Show Tulsa some lurve. Keep it local, keep it lame. Don't hate the 918. On a side note, no credit is taken for the pictures you see here unless otherwise noted.

Free Tulsa 2012 is happening like basically right now! There was a night of fun-loving sweaty sexy live music last night and there will be again TONIGHT. LIKE IN A FEW HOURS. You should go see Broncho or Sonic Violence or Skating Polly. Schedules can be found at the Free Tulsa website, shows start at 6 on various stages located throughout the Blue Dome District. Also, if you grab a copy of This Land, I believe schedules are tucked inside this last issue. Various fattening fair foods can be purchased at booths around the area, but you can dine at Joe Momma’s or The Blue Dome Diner, or really various other effing tasty places in the area. Check it out.

Hey also, there’s a new vinyl store in town, kind of tucked in a random-as-shit part of downtown where there’s some construction occurring at the moment, and if you’re not looking real close you’ll probably drive right past it. It’s called The Vinyl Countdown (like Europe’s Final Countdown, geddit?) and at the moment it’s definitely still growing. I checked it out a couple weekends ago and the stock seemed to consist mostly of the newest albums by newish bands. So that’s hip, or something. I saw some Bon Iver, some Animal Collective, a little M83, some Tegan and Sara, of Montreal, The Horrors, some Girls, and a little bit of other stuff. I’m pretty sure you won’t find any used records there for the moment. So definitely not any vintage gems, or whatever one might call them. Also, the manager is pretty chatty. I got a Toro Y Moi record and check out took 15 minutes. So just. Bear that in mind.
Shake and bake that shit.
