You would have never been able to tell it was a Tuesday night when the Butcher Babies, Hatebreed, and Black Label Society came to town. Upon pulling into the parking lot, the line to get in the Diamond Ballroom In Oklahoma City was almost all the way to the road. The venue was so packed with people you would have thought it was a weekend for sure.
The Butcher Babies are absolutely beautiful women; however, their show is anything but “glamorous”. They bring their own brand of in your face metal that will knock you off your feet. Don’t think for half a second that since they are “girls” that you won’t get all the metal you can handle. These ladies will deliver more metal than you can handle. They are kicking ass and taking names. I was blown away the first time I saw the Butcher Babies, and they have only gotten better. I can’t say enough great things about this band. You just have to check them out for yourself. If these ladies are in concert anywhere near you, do yourself a favor and catch their show. You will not be disappointed!!
We wait with anticipation all year long for what we call “Concert Season”, With us it all begins with Rocklahoma. This 3 day outdoor festival held in Pryor, Oklahoma is going on its 9th year and has been gaining momentum every year with record breaking crowds topping the previous year.
The festival is a Rock n Roll Buffet, From Current National bands all the way to the local unsigned bands that are on their way up. It is non-stop action on 3 stages on the official festival grounds as well as Camp Jager and the Axis stage in the campgrounds which are always popular stops for the diehards between acts or after most have faded off to bed in their tents or R.V.
For those of you that have never been able to make it to Rocklahoma and are worried about fitting in with the locals, Don’t worry, in all the years I have been to Rocklahoma I have yet to see one single fight, not saying there hasn’t been any trouble, but I have done it all and I have never seen it. It’s more of a family vibe everywhere you go, everyone is your friend because we are all here for the same reason, great Rock n Roll and hanging out with like minded people. Needless to say I have met some of the greatest people at Rocklahoma and our Rock n Roll family grows bigger, and bigger every year.
This years Headliners are, The always Requested Linkin Park, as well as Tesla, Godsmack, and Slayer. The headliners alone show the true diversity of this Spectacular festival.
There are many choices as far as amenities and packages when it comes to your ticket purchases.
G.A., VIP, Groupie, Roadie, and the Rockstar Packages are all available, Check out what each has to offer here http://rocklahoma.com/tickets.html. I recommend nothing less than VIP. VIP gives you Free beverages, including beer, and 2 Buffet style meals a day. You can’t beat that deal!
Don’t Forget that the campgrounds are the after party, party every night. Especially Camp Jager in conjunction with Retrospect Records they do a great job of securing great bands for their stage every night after the main stage closes down. Definately a place you will need to visit at least once.
