Held down by the Billie Holiday-channeling vocals of Erin Austin, OK Sweetheart (performing tonight at the Meadowlark with Megan Burtt, Jamie Mefford, Teresa Storch and Chris Webb) offers a comforting blend of vintage tones and straightforward pop music. The band's moniker -- which is short for Oklahoma Sweetheart -- was christened via a tweet to Austin, who is actually from upstate New York.
The group's song "Home" was given some hefty exposure when it was featured on episodes of One Tree Hill and 90210 just this year, but Austin has been kicking around since 2007 as a solo artist, long before OK Sweetheart became a full-fledged band. This show is 21-and-up; doors open at 7 p.m., and performances begin at 8.
