Angi Bruss and Kyle Roberts shot this video in preparation of this week’s Big 12 basketball tournaments.
Played a duo gig with J. Falcon Powell last night in Bricktown. The scene of the crime: Nonna’s Purple Bar. Good crowd for a three hour set. Two different ladies were celebrating their 30th birthday’s, which always makes for a festive time. Good staff there, very friendly and helpful. And this is key when playing places – sometimes the bar staff is not so friendly or helpful. Some places are easy to load-in, Nonna’s is not so much. First, you valet park out front, then load-in is back through the kitchen up the service elevator then snake around the hallway to a corner of the bar. Again, everyone from the valet to the chefs to the hostesses were top notch peeps.
Good crowd in Bricktown on Friday night, braving the weather to attend various entertainment options including the deadCENTER Film Festival and the 13th annual Blues Festival.
My band Falcon Five-O played to a good crowd over at Tapwerks. The new owners of about a year have installed a stage as they continue to revamp the old building.
Oklahoma City officials are boasting about having the world’s largest Wi-Fi “mesh” network. That means that every city public safety vehicle is tied together on a wireless Internet protocol network that blankets a 555-square-mile area with Wi-Fi coverage. each city fire or police vehicle is in itself a moving wireless router that can broadcast on the network and serve as a Wi-Fi access point if another part of the network is disabled. You can learn more about this, by reading Jim Stafford’s report in today’s Oklahoman or online at NewsOK.com.
