Fans of live music should make time for the small city of Stillwater, seventy miles north of Oklahoma City and the home of Red Dirt music; a blend of folk, country, blues and rock styles, with home-grown bands Jason Boland and the Stragglers, No Justice, the Jason Savory Band and the godfather of the genre, Bob Childers (indie rockers All-American Rejects also hail from here). Check out venues such as Eskimo Joe’s (eskimojoes.com) and Tumbleweed Dance Hall (calffry.com), or visit stillwaterscene.com.
