ACM@UCO ADDS OUTDOOR CONCERT TO ‘ROCK FOR OKLAHOMA’ EVENT JULY 23         

The Academy of Contemporary Music at the University of Central Oklahoma (ACM@UCO) will host an outdoor concert from 4:30 – 7:30 p.m., July 23 as a part of the “Rock For Oklahoma” event benefitting those impacted by the May tornadoes.           

The concert will feature ACM@UCO student and alumni bands as well as local bands including Stardeath and White Dwarfs, The Kamals, Bowlsey, Oklahoma Cloud Factory, and DJ sets by Bennix.  The bands will perform in “Thunder Alley” located on Reno Avenue between Robinson and E.K. Gaylord.             

The outdoor stage is a recent addition to the previously announced ACM@UCO performances in and around the Chesapeake Energy Arena leading up to the main stage event featuring Kings of Leon, The Flaming Lips, Jackson Browne and Built To Spill.

The ACM@UCO outdoor concert is free and open to the public.  However, concert attendees will have the opportunity to make donations to the United Way via text message to benefit those impacted by tornadoes throughout central Oklahoma.

Food truck vendors will also offer concessions throughout the outdoor concert, including Off The Hook, Huey’s Shaved Ice, La Gumbo Ya Ya, Cupcake Queen and Heo’s Kitchen, among others.
