Frankie Rose makes her debut appearance in Oklahoma fittingly enough on the eve of Valentine’s Day with a show scheduled for 8 p.m. on Thursday, February 13 at Opolis, 113 N. Crawford, Norman. Dallas indie group Blackstone Rangers and Oklahoma shoegaze act Power Pyramid will act as opening support.
The enchanting Rose played with beloved garage rock bands Dum Dum Girls, Vivian Girls and Crystal Stilts before striking out on her own in 2009. She released her debut album as Frankie Rose and the Outs in 2010, following that with Interstellar in 2012. The latter – highlighted by singles “Know Me” and “Night Swim” – landed on many year-end lists and earned a Best New Music distinction on Pitchfork.
Last year, Rose returned with her third full-length album Herein Wild, which was greeted with similarly positive reviews. Her stop at Opolis comes in the midst of a national tour with British rock band White Lies. In 2013, she supported seminal Scottish indie outfit Franz Ferdinand on its U.S. tour.
