JD McPherson made a stop in downtown Oklahoma City Friday night and performed a handful of new songs. A healthy collection of rockabilly enthusiasts, punks in tattered jean jackets and everyone in between were in attendance.
McPherson’s brand of warm, lively rock ‘n’ roll competed with a Thunder playoff game, but it was well worth hopping off of the couch. He rarely plays Oklahoma City, and I personally can’t wait to have him and his talented band back. His energy is a sight to behold as he bounced around the stage with Chuck Berry-like enthusiasm.
The set highlight was easily the concert’s opening song, “Abagail Blue.”
