Being from Oklahoma, I’m always a little surprised and stoked to see that punk is still happening there, and seemingly bigger and healthier than when I first got involved in the 1980s, during the days of NOTA, Death Puppy, No Direction, Brown 25, and some band called the Flaming Lips (their first 12″ EP is actually pretty damn good psych-punk). The mere idea that something like the recent Everything Is Not OK fest seemed impossible back then. But seeing these photos and the crowd, things have definitely changed. This all went down at the Conservatory, which is in Bricktown, if I remember correctly. Honored to add these to the Monday Photo Blog. This was one of those times it was hard to narrow it down to a small few photos. I do plan to run more in the near future. Also, you can see more in the latest issue of MRR. You know, the printed version of the site you’re on.
Send your tour photos, bands that have come through your town, the best of your local bands, etc. to: . Include your name, a link to your website (or flickr, Facebook, or whatever), and the band (or subject), date and location of each photo. Just send your best photos — edit tightly. Three to seven photos is plenty, and it’s best to send pictures of different bands. Please do not send watermarked photos. Please make your photos 72 dpi and about 600–800 pixels at the longest side. Not everything sent in will be posted, and a response is not guaranteed, but we do appreciate all of your contributions. Feel free to submit more than once. Thanks!
