How about three bands you might not know that you must see? Three bands that will be playing early in the day outside, or in the middle of the night at the Retrospect Stage, or even in the wee hours of the morning at the Jagermeister stage?
“a band to know.” Lovebettie, from Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, is that eclectic mix of rock and roll, blues, and fun, that will have you dancing in the streets [look out for the golf cart (if you’ve been to Rocklahoma, you’ll know what I mean)], and happy as a clam. Nominated by Rolling Stone magazine as a “Band to Watch,” and given rave reviews for their EPs The Red Door and Rise, Lovebettie is the perfect band to get you in the mood to party in Pryor. Pioneers of what they call “Swagger Rock,” Lovebettie has catchy fun tunes and a dynamic, talented frontwoman: Alexandra Naples. Wait until you hear her sing. After you hear their set, I can guarantee you’ll be begging for more.
A live version of “Red Roses” can be seen here:
I will be there wherever Lovebettie is playing because there is no way I am missing this show.
SONS OF TEXAS
Don’t miss the official video for the title track:
Crobot is from Pottsville, Pennsylvania, and has a short EP, but recently released their first full-length CD, Something Supernatural, which has a fantastic collection of music. It is a sound which is as easily enjoyed in a moshpit as it is in a bean bag chair while half-conscious.
Below is an official video for "Nowhere to Hide" from the new CD. Next to that is, well, sit back, get comfortable, grab a beer, and enjoy.

Dan Adler was raised in Southern California to a mom and dad, one of whom appreciated Creedence and left wing anti-war politics. By the teenage years, Dan became obsessed with Black Sabbath, listening to the same seven albums repeatedly for 5 years. During this time, his favorite concert experience was seeing Metallica open for a bunch of bands that no longer exist and winning the 1st ever Santa Cruz Air Guitar contest. After several years in Africa listening and dancing to Chimurenga music, Dan returned to have the two best children in the world, one of whom spends a lot of time at concerts with him. What a lucky dad!
