We are lucky to have such a vast array of concert venues in Tulsa. From big name super stars, to new and upcoming artists, downtown Tulsa has become a hub for those who love to attend concerts. I myself am a huge country and dubstep fan. Downtown Tulsa is a quick and hassle free 5 minute drive from TU. These concerts not only draw TU students and Tulsans, but students from OU and OSU. I was lucky enough to go to a few shows last week.
Fun Fact: The BOK Center was named the the top venue in the world by the International Association of Venue Managers! This is the place where super stars perform. I’ve bought my tickets for Eric Church fifteen minutes after they went on sale! I can’t wait until December 7th! Excited is an understatement.
Pretty Lights at The Brady Theatre
Paper Diamond at Cain’s Ballroom
Inside Cain’s Ballroom – This is the best pace in the country to watch a concert! There isn’t a bad seat in the entire room. Every ticket is general admission with standing room only. It gets a little crazy to say the least.
Fun Fact: In 1978, historic Cain’s Ballroom was only one of a few venues to host the Sex Pistols in their only American Tour.
Hey there my internet people. I am happy to say I am still alive and ready to start blogging again. I have once again found my inner muse, so be ready for some awesome posts! This semester has been rocking and rolling since day one. But every now and then I need a break.
The Tulsa State fair came to town about a week ago and I had a great time. There are free concerts everynight and lots of vendors and attractions. And let’s not forget the food! I definitely had my fair shair! Let’s see…I had 2 jumbo corndogs, garlic parmesan curly fries, chicken on a stick, fried reese’s, fried oreos, fried snickers, and funnel cake topped with ice cream and strawberries…yeah I think that was all.haha
This week is homecoming at The University of Tulsa. So I’ll be back soon with more to share. Till next time.
After a busy week of classes, tests, quizzes and papers the week before Tulsa Time, I was rewarded with an awesome weekend. A group of friends and I embraced our Okie roots by throwing on our cowgirl and cowboy boots and going to a country concert at Tulsa’s famous Cain’s Ballroom on Friday night. It rocked. Jake Owen, or as I like to call him, Jakeeeey was quite the entertainer. Our college student habits paid off because we studied up on his song lyrics before the concert. It definitely added to the experience because we were able to recognize songs and sing along too! The next day my voice fully recovered from the concert and I spent the day studying and working out with friends. It was a pretty low-key and relaxing day, topped off by the oh so embarrassing moment of handing a Chipotle employee a Qdoba coupon…true story. Eventually we sorted it out though and the story ended happily- Qdoba chips and queso in my belly. On Sunday I helped with TU’s Tulsa Time admission event. Hosting two prospective students in my room was a complete blast! We ate, played games, watched the All Campus Talent Show, and played sardines. It was so exciting getting to meet so many potentially new TU students on campus! A new week is underway now and thankfully the weather has been warm enough for shorts, chacos, and some sweet frisbee action! Until next time, Go TU!
