Giving you the music a day early:
Those opening piano chords in “Trouble Won’t Last Always” from Tennessee-based Glossary‘s October 2011 album Long Live All Of Us tells you quickly the 12-track record is going to be a rollicking good time filled with boogie R&B, horn-filled soul and pedal steel-laced country. And it’s all Southern-blessed rock ‘n’ roll the band delivers on record and live, including at a White Water Tavern show. Also on the bill will be dirty Alabama rock ‘n’ roll act Lee Bains III & The Glory Fires and folk punk singer/songwriter Austin Lucas. The music starts at 9 p.m.
The last few years have been kind to the First Lady of Rockabilly: Wanda Jackson. She was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2009 and then her home of Oklahoma City named a street after her. Jackson is a rock ‘n’ roll legend, the queen of rock who scored a Top 40 hit with “Let’s Have a Party” in 1960 and later had a string of country hits. But during the last few years her career and her influence have undergone a revival, playing U.S. and European festivals and recording a new album, The Party Ain’t Over, with Jack White that includes a rollicking cover of Bob Dylan’s “Thunder on the Mountain.” Jackson pays a visit to Rev Room. It’s an all-ages show with the music starting at 8:30 p.m. Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 day of show.
“Lips of an Angel” is the 2006 smash that Oklahoma post-grunge band Hinder is known for by the masses. But fans of the band know that power ballad is just the tip of the band’s sound. There is also the glamlike “All American Nightmare” (the title track of the band’s 2010 album) and other hard-hitting rock anthems such as “Use Me.” Joining Hinder for a Juanita’s show presented by 100.3 The Edge will be two California rock bands: Trapt and The Dreaming. The doors open at 9 p.m. with the music starting at 10 p.m. Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 day of show.
Here are Lee Bains III & The Glory Fires with their “Everything You Took”:
