TLP Entertainment presents Adelitas Way at Oklahoma City Limits in Oklahoma City on Saturday, September 28, 2019 and follows-up with Blacktop Mojo at The Venue Shrine in Tulsa on Sunday, September 29, 2019.
Las Vegas rock band Adelitas Way formed in 2006 and released their debut self-titled studio album in 2009. The debut single “Invincible” propelled the band into the mainstream rock scene and paved the way for tours with artists such as Shinedown, Creed, Papa Roach and Godsmack to name a few. The band’s song “Scream” was featured on the 2010 soundtrack for Saw 3D. Adelitas Way released their second studio album, Home School Valedictorian in 2011, which produced two number 1 singles, “Sick” and “Criticize”, while the singles “The Collapse” and “Alive” reached the top ten on rock charts. The band has released three additional studio albums, Stuck in 2014, Getaway in 2016 and Notorious in 2017.
Tempe, Arizona band The Black Moods and Black Hills, South Dakota band Blacklite District will join Adelitas Way when they roll into OKC on Saturday night. Two local bands will also be performing, Sign of Lies and Munkie Gunn. Sign of Lies is well known in Oklahoma City and throughout the region for their powerful live show and excellent songwriting. The band never fails to bring their best to the stage and fans continue to notice. Sign of Lies has an ever growing fanbase and provides support for several nationally recognized rock and metal bands that come to Oklahoma. Munkie Gunn, a father and son duo, is a local favorite. They have developed their unique sound, a combination of traditional rock and nu metal, and their live performance gets the crowd going.
On Sunday night, Blacktop Mojo out of Palestine, Texas will headline at The Venue Shrine in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The band formed in 2012 and released their debut album, I Am, in 2014. The band practically lives on the road and has shared the stage with artists like Sammy Hagar, Black Stone Cherry, Pop Evil and Puddle of Mudd. In 2017, Blacktop Mojo released their second album, Burn the Ships, through their own label, Cuhmon Records. The singles “Where The Wind Blows” and their cover of Aerosmith’s “Dream On” both reached the top 40 charts.
Joining Blacktop Mojo in Tulsa are local bands Cyanide Hooks, Doxy, Firestryke and Oklahoma Alibi. Cyanide Hooks regularly performs in Oklahoma City and Tulsa. They deliver an explosive sound and energetic performance. Doxy has an epic, progressive metal sound with heavy beats and hard driving guitars. Firestryke has been part of the local music scene since 1984 and has toured extensively throughout the Midwest. The band has continued to evolve and grow as musicians, producing a heavier sound along the way. Local country band Oklahoma Alibi will also perform on Sunday night and brings something different to the stage.
