Music Scene: July 19-25
If you like a bit of melodrama with your psychedelic folk, head to the KAFM Radio Room on Wednesday, July 24, for a concert with Deerpeople of Stillwater, Okla.
Deerpeople began in early 2009 when six friends began writing and playing music together, a news release said. The songs were performed and perfected at house parties and at Stillwater venues and, in time, the band headlined on the Opolis Stage during the third annual Norman Music Festival. In 2011, Deerpeople played at SXSW at Oklahoma’s Buffalo Lounge. They have even performed at the home of country megastar, Garth Brooks, the release said.
More recently, the band donated profits from its concerts and song downloads to support those affected by the May tornadoes in Oklahoma, according to Deerpeople’s Facebook page.
Go to deerpeople.com to download tracks from the group’s “Deerpeople” EP released in May 2010 and “Explorgasm” released in January 2012
Local band Dreamboat will open the KAFM show, which will be in the KAFM Radio Room, 1310 Ute Ave. Doors will open 8:30 p.m., and the show will be at 9 p.m.
Tickets cost $7. Call 241-8801, ext. 223, or go to kafmradio.org for information.
