Oklahoma City’s institutional memory of Har Mar Superstar probably extends only to his arrest for grabbing his crotch and saying a few nasty things onstage while opening for Incubus at the Ford Center in 2002, but Sean Tillmann was never destined to be a mere footnote. I mean, sure, he looks like Ron Jeremy’s little brother, but the man can howl.
His new album, “Bye Bye 17,” goes deep into retro-soul territory, and “Lady, You Shot Me” shows just how great this man’s live set can be. I was listening to the “Nerdist” podcast a week ago and co-host Jonah Ray was talking about Har Mar’s spectacular performance at his wedding, as well as how great the new album is. He was so right. By all means, check out “Bye Bye 17.” It’s on Spotify.
