We are approaching a new season, ushering in new ideas, fresh bands, more local shows, and cooler nights. While looking over my calendar for past summer, I realized that I went to some incredible shows, but all of them within the same five to ten venues. I am a loyal patron when I find a place I like, there is no doubt about that.

However, with fall comes renewal and change, and I have set a personal goal to visit two new venues a month to watch bands who I have never seen perform before. LOOKatOKC ad sales representative Nancy Simoneau will be accompanying me to different locations and reviewing these venues, and I am going to tell you all about our adventures on the town.

If you are with a restaurant or venue in the metro area and want us to swing by and enjoy your live music, tweet us @LOOKatOKC and we will do our best to paint the town with you. Here are my show picks for the coming weeks:

The Opolis 11th Anniversary, Aug. 16-17, 113 N Crawford, Norman. Last year, this was one of my favorite local music events, comparable to a little slice of Norman Music Festival. For two days, my favorite Norman venue will be hosting the best of the best in Oklahoma musicians. The two-day line-up includes Prettyboy, Shi++y/Awesome, Locust Avenue, The Copperheads, Poolboy, Vacay, Colin Nance, Pink Pony, Team Nightstand, BRONCHO, Dressy Bessy, DEERPEOPLE, The Low Litas, The Feel Spectres, and Gentle Ghost. This is a free show. My birthday is Aug. 16, and I would like to thank Marian and Andy for putting together such an incredible celebration for everyone in the Oklahoma music scene.
