A wild weekend lies ahead, Tulsa. From trashy surf-punk to genre-defying and Tulsa-defining jazz, there's a bit of it all on tap.
1. Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey performs, Yojimbo opens. YES! Tulsa's beloved, funky, freaky jazz fusion outfit is back for one night only, so catch this show. It's at Fransen's Warehouse (aka Fransen's Wood Shop), 11 N. Cheyenne Ave. Doors open at 9 p.m., showtime is 10 p.m. Friday. Tickets are $10 at the door. JFJO formed in 1994 and today blends piano, drums, vocals, lap steel guitar and stand-up bass. And lots of other funky stuff. It's become one of the premier acts of modern jazz across the globe.
2. Indie rockers Foreign Home, The Hope Trust and Missing Sibling fill out this trifecta, 10 p.m. Saturday at The Yeti (formerly the Crystal Pistol), 417 N. Main St. Must be 21.
3. Local hard-rocker Bound binds itself to a blowout reunion show, 9 p.m. Friday at Downtown Lounge, 25 N. Cheyenne Ave. Must be 21. Also performing will be Constant Peril, Surfacer, JorDan and Brea.
4. Longtime Americana-bluesman Pat Cook (of Electric Rag Band) brings his guitar to a lively acoustic set, 8 p.m. Friday at Back Alley Blues & BBQ, 116 S. Elgin Ave. Free. All ages.
5. Insane white-trash surf-punk local "old-timers" Billy Joe Winghead brings its raucous, boundry-busting live show to The Mercury Lounge, 10 p.m. Saturday, 18th Street and Boston Avenue. Must be 21.
