Rocklahoma Adds Fifth Day; Oklahoma Beer Distributors Very Psyched
Because of “overwhelming response from members of the rock community and their fan” (um, sic?), the hard-rock reunionfest Rocklahoma has swelled to a fifth day, news that’s probably thrilling all the businesses within a 500-mile radius of the festival’s home city, Pryor, Okla. The festival will now run July 9-13; a ton of hard-rock stalwarts, including Extreme, Cinderella, Tesla, and Sebastian Bach, have already been announced, leaving me to puzzle over just who, exactly, will be performing on that extra day. (Also, am I the only one who just realized that Living Colour was on the bill?) Full roster of acts, including the many second-stage bands, after the jump.
