Tulsa's got this weekend covered. From jazz to classic rock, metal, psychedelic, folk and more, talent takes over the town. All of it promises to be great. Now, get out there and enjoy yourselves.
1. The acclaimed acoustic jazz power trio of Annie Ellicott, Mark Bruner and Shelby Eicher will release their debut CD at two shows, 3 and 6:30 p.m. Sunday at Full Moon Cafe, 1525 E. 15th St. The show is all-ages.
2. The "Tributes for Taron" show Saturday brings some of the best regional tribute bands to Tulsa to help young jazz guitarist Taron Pounds
Pounds suffered a devastating facial injury last July when a 4-inch mortar shell exploded at his cousin's wedding and nearly took his life.
Oklahoma City doctors have started the long process of reconstructive surgery on Pounds' shredded bones and tissues, and at least 10 procedures are expected in the near future. Now, the Tulsa community has rallied to support Pounds and help offset monumental medical bills.
Nationally touring Led Zeppelin look-alike and sound-alike tribute band Let's Zeppelin, for whom Pounds worked sound, will headline the show. Black Sabbath tribute Electric Funeral also will perform, as will Idle, Pounds' college fraternity band of brothers.
The show starts at 7 p.m. Saturday at Cain's Ballroom, 423 N. Main St. There also will be raffles, a silent auction and more. Tickets are $15, plus fees, available at the box office, by calling 1-877-4-FLYTIX or by visiting tulsaworld.com/cains or tulsaworld.com/ticketfly The show is all-ages.
Proceeds will go to Pounds' family to help defray medical costs.
3. Fassler Hall is throwing a big tribute Saturday to Bob Dylan and the Grateful Dead, chock full of local flavor, including Dylanesque acoustic and electric sets including Cody Clinton, Chris Becker and Andrew Rice. Dead tribute act American Beauty will follow. Must be 21. Cover is $5. Party starts at 9 p.m., 304 S. Elgin Ave.
4. Old-school meets new-school when bluesy Tulsa Sound musicians Steve Pryor and Paul Benjaman collide for an all-acoustic show at 9 p.m. Thursday at Shrine, 112 E. 18th St. The duo has done many all-electric blowout shows together, but this sit-down show is a first. Must be 21. Cover charge is $5.
5. It's time to get folkified with a night of genre immersion presented by local band Grazzhopper , 10 p.m. Thursday at The Vanguard, 222 N. Main St. Just about anyone might show up and sit in, so go and enjoy a spontaneous night of music at this monthly folk jam. Must be 21.
