Friday events, June 29

Sad Daddy

If you’re thirsty for blues at happy hour, George’s Majestic Lounge has local favorites Earl & Them and Steve Pryor. Later on, two extremely talented local bands working in completely different genres are playing together. We like seeing funky Flipoff Pirates and rock-y Perpetual Werewolf on the same bill.

I can’t remember the last time there was a happy hour show at the Lightbulb Club, but they’re trying one out at 7 p.m. Friday night with excellent bluegrass trio, Sad Daddy. Later that night, Fort Smith rockers Pagiins is playing with Russellville punks Half Raptor and The Chads.

There’s also a punk rock show at LaLaLand (behind Art Experience on MLK) with Inky Skulls, Anti-Sociales, Eric Ayotte, Un Final Fatale and buck.buck.

Local bluesman RJ Mischo is at Smoke & Barrel, and Tulsa songwriter Jesse Aycock is at Kingfish.
