OKC concert scene
(Mike Allen)

You may have noticed that the OKC concert scene has changed dramatically in the past 10 years. From the amount of venues to the different levels of touring acts and down to the local music scene, things are at a much higher level than they ever have been in my lifetime.

Friday night, I saw a band at the Tower Theatre that, if they were around in 2009, would have never given the OKC concert scene a look. That band was The Midnight, and their show was incredible. After I left the venue, I thought to myself that I would have missed this experience had we not come this far. I’m certain I’m not the only one to have this thought in the metro area, as The Criterion and Jones Assembly are hosting good shows regularly as well.

I suppose the point of all this is to say that we’ve come a long, long way as a city, and it may not be something that’s so obvious as, say, giant skyscrapers or a convention center going up. Oh yeah, and don’t forget local bands, too. They are killing it just about every night of the week.
