When you're looking through the tour schedules of your favorite bands, we're betting you probably don't think of Oklahoma as an ideal spot to see a show. But maybe you should. Cain's Ballroom has been playing host to some of the biggest acts around since it made the switch from a dance academy to a music venue in the mid '70s. There's a framed piece of drywall that lost a bout with Sid Vicious when the Sex Pistols played here, paving the way for later acts like The Strokes, The Polyphonic Spree, Metallica, and Elvis Costello. While the history won't make the act you're watching any better, at least it's an improvement over watching a show at your local corporate sponsored megavenue.
