Dierks Bentley battles power outage, Radiohead preps new album, Fort Reno concert series kicks off, Rock & Roll Hotel hosts Argonaut benefit
By Chris Richards
- Country singer Dierks Bentley was scheduled to perform on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" on Monday when a power outage shut down the show's control room, broadcast transmission center and tape operations area. But the show must go on. Kimmel recorded the entire program on his laptop and Bentley and his band performed unplugged. The show is set to air Tuesday night.
- Radiohead guitarist Ed O'Brien tells the BBC that the bands current album is nearing completion and may see release by the end of the year. But still no word on whether the group's eighth album will be sold in stores, given away online or beamed directly into our brainspace with lasers.
- And in local venue news... The annual Fort Reno concert series is set to kick off at Fort Reno Park next week, but the full summer schedule still hasn't been announced. What's taking so long, guys? Meanwhile, the Rock & Roll Hotel will host a benefit event next Wednesday, June 30 to raise funds for neighboring bar The Argonaut after it suffered fire damage on Sunday.
