We loved having BJ Barham jump into the van after soundchecking with his well-seasoned American Aquarium bandmates. We figured he’d play something new but not this new.

“I Gave Up The Drinking (Before She Gave Up On Me)” was merely two days old when this video was filmed. That might be a record for youngest song to make it in the van.

We loved hanging out with Sabrina Ellis and Andrew Cashen so much that we couldn’t wait to have them back in the van. You saw them last in our Sweet Spirit episode but now they’re back with A Giant Dog’s harder rock edge.

Loved hearing a brand new song (above) and another (below) off of the band’s Merge Records debut.

Sherman “WoRm” Johnson might be easiest to find at a computer. The OKC-based hip-hop engineer and producer is a natural behind the board but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have his own hunger to perform.

He was joined by Darrell Jones, Ashlee Watkins, Taylor Johnson and Jeff Kraetzer (DJ Chips).

Rain put a damper on Norman Music Festival’s afternoon performances so we decided to throw a concert celebration with Austin’s biggest party band. Sweet Spirit thrilled us with two songs before the rain subsided, and they rocked the festival’s main stage.

Party on.

Lauren Barth thought she was just visiting Tulsa but ended up being one of its most talented new residents. The songwriter has a debut album ready called “Forager” and invited the record’s producer Jesse Aycock to join her in the van.

What a pair.

You know that old joke in the rock world about bands turning it all the way to 11?

Meet Red City Radio.

They use 11 as toilet paper.

The Okie band’s aggressive and catchy tunes have propelled them to tour outside of the state and even Europe.

They are headed back on tour soon, but we were lucky to catch them for a double song treatment in the streets of downtown Oklahoma City. The first track “An Introduction of Sorts” is off of the band’s latest release “The Dangers of Standing Still” and the second track is off of the 2009 EP “To The Sons and Daughters of Woody Guthrie.”

Hold on to your ear holes and turn this episode all the way up.

Go ahead, scare your coworkers.

Here’s the Vimeo video if you’re into that sort of thing.

Check out some stills of the band after the jump.
