What to do in Oklahoma on July 21, 2012: Hear Turnpike Troubadours at the Wormy Dog Saloon

Mustang Brewery Anniversary Party with Turnpike Troubadours Oklahoma City, OK

Today’s featured event:

Hear Oklahoma red dirt rockers the Turnpike Troubadours at 9:30 tonight at the Wormy Dog Saloon, 311 E Sheridan. The Troubadours and openers Brandon Clark Band are playing the Wormy Dog in honor of the Mustang Brewing Co. Anniversary Party. Information: 601-6276 or www.wormydog.com.

Earlier this year, I got the chance to talk to the Troubadours’ singer/songwriter/guitarist Evan Felker about the band’s new album, “Goodbye Normal Street,” released in May on Bossier City Records. With “Goodbye Norman Street,” he and his cohorts focused on capturing a “real band-playing kind of feel rather than a sort of perfect to-the-metronome kind of record.”

“The things that you hear on the radio, especially country radio, a lot of time are just really Auto-tuned and lined up perfect and it lacks any kind of a soul to it. It doesn’t really sound like real people are playing it to me. And we just wanted to give a really good representation of what we are and what we can do as a band,” he said.

“We wanted to sound like ourselves playing, and sometimes that’s easier said than done … especially in the studio because the studio’s a pretty unnatural place to be trying to get an energetic take or really get into it. You’re just in kind of a sterile room by yourself and it’s quiet … it’s not like playing a live show.”
