The Oklahoma City Barons is an American hockey franchise that competes in the American Hockey League.

American indie pop groups don't reach into the well of Mexican music for influence all that often. Boston-based duo, The David Wax Museum, however, is proving to be an exception. The group blends Latin rhythms, Americana, indie folk and acoustic rock together into one energetic whole, and then punctuates it all with mariachi guitars and horn blasts. While David Wax and Suz Slezak form the core of the band, the David Wax Museum expands on record and onstage to incorporate mandolins, upright bass and drums. The band began to gain attention thanks to a successful performance at the 2010 Newport Folk Festival, which spawned tour dates with the likes of the Old 97s and the Avett Brothers.
Jersey Boys is a musical based on the lives of Frankie Valli and the members of The Four Seasons. The documentary-style musical follows the group's rise to fame in the early days of rock 'n' roll, with standards like "Walk Like a Man" and "Big Girls Don't Cry" filling out a smash-hit soundtrack. Shedding light on the struggle and glory of the young musical icons, the show travels back to 1960s America in big Broadway fashion, nailing the art of the period musical and breathing newlife into the story behind the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees.
