After failing to scrounge up some Texas Mardi Gras tickets, I decided to head to my favorite saloon…The Wormy Dog to check out Aaron Watson. I have been meaning to catch one of his full length show’s. Last time I saw Watson, he opened for Big & Rich, so called “next big act” Lo Cash Cowboys (what a joke) and halfway through the show all the Aaron Watson fans had cleared out. I’m not sure if that’s because they loved Aaron Watson and he had already played or if they didn’t like bad music. Probably both.
Aaron Watson is one of those guys that oozing with Texas music talent. His music is honky-tonk through and through and with his eighth album Angels and Outlaws under his own independent label, Big Label Records, I knew his set would be solid. With honky-tonk songs like “Love Makin’ Song”, “3rd Gear and 17″ and crowd favorite “Reckless” Aaron Watson kept the ground in it from start to finish.
If you have a chance to see Aaron Watson go do it! There is no absence of steel guitars and fiddling in this show, just the way country music should be. I’m glad I brought my dancing boots for this one. Whether it was one of his infamous honky-tonk, steel guitar driven songs that make you want to just dance and twirl the night away or a slow dance with “Off The Record” or his top 10 song on the Texas Music Charts: Top 50 Songs of 2008 album “Hearts Are Breaking Across Texas”, Aaron Watson knows how to put on a show. Not only did he take requests from fans, but like every good country singer/song writer he has a song about his granddad “Barbed Wire Halo“, my personal favorite.
Well, I need to run to store and pick up some more Coke for my whiskey since, here in this small town, everything shuts down at 11p.m. So, I’m signing off to ride into the sunset once again till next time.
I’m excited about this review because I’m a HUGE No Justice fan. These guys deserve a lot more praise than I could ever give them.
The night at the Wormy Dog started off right with Turnpike Troubadours, a band out of Tahlequah, Oklahoma who look to be headed in the right direction. After a great set by TT, No Justice took the stage. No Justice know how to put on a show. With a stunning light show and fog machine it felt like a rock show. Usually a lot of smoke and lights are to just make up for bad music but that’s not the case with No Justice.
Recently joining forces with Smith Music Group these guys have come a long way from Stillwater, Oklahoma. With energy, they opened the show and closed the show the same way. No Justice did not disappoint their fans (The No Justice Junkies) by playing crowd favorites “Red Dress”, “Horseshoe Lake”, “Never Come Back” and ending the night with my personal favorite “The Toast”. No Justice left the packed house cheering for more. Bottom line is these guys can put on show and have the music to back it, so sorry if you missed out on one of the best shows I’ve seen this year.
Now it’s late and I’m tired and heading off into the sunset with my whiskey in hand, cause if I was a six-gun I would be breaking my parole…that’s a joke folks! Until next time, never trust a man with shiny boots.
Just a note to let you know we’ll be doing some catching up this week. After doing some maintenance recently, we’re ready to get back into blogging after about a month off. Over the next few days we’ll be putting up some older posts by the Rooster that got lost in the shuffle and introducing some new blog features, including a weekly special exclusive to our blog readers. So, be sure to stay tuned for some Red Dirt updates and some great deals on new and featured items in our stores…
Oklahoma City recently joined the NBA family with the relocation and rebranding of the Seattle Superonics. Now known as The Thunder, the team plays its 41 home games in the heart of our home town.
In light of this event, American Way magazine has showcased the city in two separate articles across its last two issues. The first article, in its February 1st issue, includes “what to do and see” recommendations from several local personalities including civic leaders, business owners, and media. From French bistros to dive bars and “cowboy museums” to crew style rowing, the list of recommendations provides a great cross section of the varied cultural and lifestyle attractions available in the city.
Which brings us to Linda Cavanaugh, a long time resident and Oklahoma City media personality who serves as an anchor on KFOR-TV’s news channel 4 . When it comes to western wear, Linda proclaims “Langston’s is it.” Specifically, she is directing readers to our Stockyards City store, which is just a short drive or trolley ride from downtown where the Thunder plays their home games at the Ford Center. Located in a historically renovated building, the store serves as both a retail store and tourist attraction. With many western themed businesses in the Stockyards, run by skilled craftsman with a passion for western culture and lifestyle, Stockyards City is actually a great place for all things western.
For a more in depth look at the NBA in Oklahoma City, the latest issue of American Way magazine contrasts the NBA’s newest venue with one of its most revered, New York’s Madison Square Garden, home of the New York Knicks. Titled City Game, Cowboy Style, the piece is an enlightening and in depth look at two very different markets that are now linked by one great game. It certainly has convinced me to make sure I catch a game at the Garden soon, if for nothing else, for the hot dog on the way in. (Speaking of, anyone think we can get those guys at Coney Island on Main Street to open a stand outside the Ford Center?…)
Just stop by one of our four metro Oklahoma City locations (Stockyards City, I-240 and Shields, Midwest City, and Yukon) and purchase any Wrangler items and you’ll receive a voucher for free tickets to the IFR. It’s one of the great rodeo events of the year and you can go for free just by purchasing that pair of jeans or western shirt by Wrangler that you wanted, but didn’t get for Christmas. Consider it a present from us to you.
Today marks what is commonly considered the busiest shipping day of the year. We know you’re probably worn out from camping all night to be the first one to grab that new 60″ 1080p Plasma screen TV so you can catch every grain of dust and drop of sweat of the next PBR event from the comfort of your couch. You’re probably a little sore from battling the masses for the next great Elmo doll that they never seem to stock enough of. Or maybe you’re just too full to move after stuffing yourself with all that turkey and, well, stuffing. It’s possible that in all that chaos you completely forgot to get those jeans you get for you in laws, those new boots your promised your spouse, or maybe you just don’t quite fit into your own jeans anymore after the start of the holiday season.
Well, don’t get up. Head on over to the online store and shop our great selection of jeans, cowboy boots, and western shirts. We even have a few western gifts this year for that person that deserves something a little more unique. And the best part is, we’ll ship it for free. No minimums, required purchases, or any other hoops to jump through. Just fill your shopping cart with as little or as much western wear goodies as you want, select Ground as your shipping method, and enter freeship08 in the coupon field at checkout, or just click the link below and it will be entered for you:
