Norman Music Festival — All Day, All Night, In Stereo
11:43 a.m. I’m at the Second Annual Norman Music Festival in Downtown Norman, and so far the crowds are about three times as big as they were at this time last year. There’s plenty of room to wander for now, but it should get tight later — it’s possible that attendance could reach 25,000 this year.
As soon as NewsOK.com and Wimgo get the live feed up, you’ll be able to watch the festival live here — or at least that’s the plan. Of Montreal headlines — come down here now, stay for the day, get exhausted and fully entertained.
12:05 p.m. Everyone talks about how amazing it is that Mickey Reese, aka El Paso Hot Button, can make such an extraordinary full-band racket all by his lonesome, but Reese also has an amazing, wailing rock ‘n’ roll vocal range to go with his extraordinary chops. He’s the first one on the main stage, and the crowd is multiplying like a hipster math club.
1:06 p.m. Student Film’s new material from Generator Operator Destroyer sounds superb on the Main Stage — the band will be the next performers on Static this Friday. This festival is already massive — the crowd at 1 p.m. is roughly what it was at 6 p.m. last year. I’m guessing that we’re going to have 25 to 30 grand this year, and maybe closer to that top end. It’s windy as hell, but beyond that, it’s perfect.
2:06 p.m. The Absolute just did an exceedingly loud and cool-to-match cover of “She Don’t Use Jelly.” By all means, check out the live feed at the top of the page, but come down here if you can. History in the making: a free live festival that runs like clockwork, and in a few years, NMF will be as big as Dfest.
