What's Up in the 405
Tuesday, July 24
Their new album covers cuts from Bruno Mars, Ed Sheeran, Kesha and Demi Lovato, but there’s no telling what songs they’ll serve up in their own distinctive style at this OKC show – although you can bet it’ll sound amazingly harmonious. If you wanted to make the argument that musical instruments aren’t necessarily crucial ingredients in order to form a spectacular band, this Texas quintet’s career constitutes some strong supporting evidence. A cappella excellence is on the menu, so don’t miss out.

My Brilliant Divorce
Through Saturday, July 21
There’s nothing like a sudden, unexpected upheaval – like, say, your husband walking out on you for a much younger woman – to make you reevaluate your life. Like it or not, Angela is single now, and must begin finding her way through the day-to-day reality (including some high points) of being her own person. It’s not all sunshine and roses, but filled with plenty of warmth and laughter, as Carpenter Square wraps up its run on this Geraldine Aron play.

Bricktown Beach Concert
Friday, July 20
The little slice of sandy heaven known as the Bricktown Beach is in the midst of its third season – and while it’s open to the public 24 hours a day, this Friday is an especially good time to visit. Americana artist Mallory Eagle opens the festivities, and local cover artists My So Called Band will lay down a set of ’90s favorites, in a free concert. Come get a snow cone, a bite or two from the Dodgers concession vendors and some sand between your toes.
