Another week is down and the summer's concert calendar continues to scroll along. This week, we've got a healthy mix of local, regional and nationally touring talent to choose from and as always, we've got all the info to get you out the door. Complete listings can be found in our weekly live music calendar, but here are a few of the highlights to get you jump started.
Thursday, July 19
Baron Von Swagger headlines a show at Downtown Lounge with David Castro Band and Anthem for Ava to help finance Baron's coming trip to Nashville to record a new EP with a Grammy nominated producer. Also on Thursday, Desi & Cody play The Treehouse with Don't Stop Please and IDL Ballroom hosts a dance party with Helicopter Showdown and Run DMT. The coolest show of the night, however, goes down at Dwelling Spaces as Tyson Meade plays an acoustic show that spans his work with Chainsaw Kittens, Defenestration and his solo career. The show is at 7pm and you can get your tickets in advance via ticketfly.com or at the door for $12 -- but show up early because this one will definitely sell out.

It's a great night for Americana and Southern rock as Turnpike Troubadours return to Cain's Ballroom with Dirty River Boys and just down the street, Vanguard hosts Ryan McBride and the Groomsmen. Before you end the night, you can wrap things up at Mercury Lounge with Deadman Flats to complete your night in the right spirits.

The big show of the weekend arrives at Brady Theater as Tenacious D lands in Tulsa for a show with The Sights. Get your tickets quickly for this one, though, as there are only a few left and it should sell out by show time. Also on Saturday night, IDL Ballroom hosts Bunny Gang (featuring Nathen Maxwell of Flogging Molly) with DJ Rico and Synthetic Elements opening and Colourmusic plays the Free Tulsa Launch Party at Crystal Pistol. Just down the street, The Vanguard hosts David Castro Band with Dachsund and Desi & Cody for a solid night of local music. Finally, Mercury Lounge delivers once again with a homecoming show by Sand Springs native Brandon Jenkins, who may live in Austin now, but is still a Tulsan at heart.
Sunday, July 22
Finally, wrap up your weekend with a night of cool jazz, blues and soul as Myron Oliver plays as part of the Jazz Hall of Fame's summer concert series with a gig at The Jazz Depot at 5pm. If you're in the mood for some indie rock later in the evening, you can catch Corey Flanigan at Soundpony. Or just do yourself a favor and wrap your weekend with an old friend, settling in with Paul Benjaman at The Colony or Brandon Clark at Mercury Lounge for their standing weekly gigs.
