Shop and sway
Three spots for weeknight entertainment
A few of Tulsa’s favorite shopping destinations (old and new) will host free outdoor concerts this month. Explore shops while taking in the sounds of some of Oklahoma’s most prized musicians.
Concerts here are dubbed “happy hour” because musicians perform from 4-7 p.m. on the shopping center’s western deck. Enjoy tunes from the patio of OPEN Container, the Boxyard’s top-floor bar, or from the downstairs courtyard.
Tuesdays in June, the Boxyard will host “Blues in the Box” with the Paul Benjaman Band. This Tulsa Sound-influenced group is known for rocking festivals throughout Oklahoma and beyond. On Fridays, catch the Dustin Pittsley Band performing its Southern, blues-infused rock.
502 E. Third St.
Utica Square is celebrating the 26th year of Summer’s Fifth Night, a family-friendly event in the center’s parking lot west of the Snow Goose. Lawn chairs and blankets are welcome.
On June 1, hear the soulful sounds of the Starr Fisher Ensemble with Larry Stokes and Starr Fisher. On June 8, the Fabulous Mid Life Crisis Band performs classic rock.
Bring your dancing shoes on June 15 for Tulsa music icons Zodiac, playing upbeat pop and rock hits. On the 22nd, dive into Oklahoma bluegrass with Stillwater’s Red Dirt Rangers. Award-winning country rock singer Mary Cogan performs June 29.
