Arkansas Game

I went with the band for my first out of state college football game. It was a great experience. I’ve never been inside a stadium so big and the Arkansas fans were very dedicated to their team and their spirit was astounding. We did not let them outdo us though. Though we were not the full size band we played louder than their band, which outnumbered us at least 10 to 1. I’m so proud to be a Golden Hurricane! Despite the loss the game was great and I’ll remember it for a long time.

Some Really Pretty Lights

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.

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.
