June 17, 2023
If we could take the word “FUN” and make it a festival show, it would be this one festival friends. Because that’s the only way we can describe our June 17 show. From the return of our Opening Act, our Youth Open Mic performances, to our lineup of the most entertaining artists McAlester has ever seen, you’re going to be wishing the night would never end.
This show, like all of our festival shows, is FREE! If you are looking for a little extra experience though – don’t forget to check out the additional passes and events this summer!
hellogoodbye are a band hailing from Huntington Beach, California, who formed in 2001. Since debuting in 2004 they have attracted a cult following thanks to their bright, accessible take on emo rock and frontman Forrest Kline’s unique songwriting style. They’re a band with three studio albums, five E.P’s and a single that went into the top 15 of the Billboard Hot 100. Most notable is their debut released in 2006, “Zombies! Aliens! Vampires! Dinosaurs!” went straight in at number 13 on the Billboard 200 and at number 17 in the U.K.
Good Looks is a bar band searching for common ground and yearning for a better system. Made up of vocals, guitar: Tyler Jordan; Lead Guitar: Jake Ames; Bass: Robert Cherry and Drums: Phil Dunne, this blue-collar indie-rock band plays with a healthy dose of Replacement swagger and shimmering, desert rock riffs not unlike The War on Drugs. Recently taking home the Austin Music Award for Best Rock Band, Good Looks has an acclaimed debut album that has been described as blurring the line between indie-rock and alt-country.
A five-piece band of creatives based in Nashville, TN, Future Crib delivers dynamic performances that bounce between poppy make-you-wanna-dance tunes and experimental yet engaging tracks that prod at life’s shared realities. There’s a clear preference for good songs and exciting sounds over genre bounds and expectations, and this is evident on their 2021, Full Time Smile. Over all, Future Crib creates music for everyone, inviting all to a fun, welcoming show where you can feel free to get down.
