Power Pyramid - The God Drums

Power Pyramid doesn’t have much patience for nonsense. That appears to be the takeaway from the Oklahoma City quintet’s last 10 months, which brought The God Drums in September, the Insomnia EP in January and its latest, self-titled effort in July.

TJ Mayes - "When Love Comes Down"

’50s era rock ’n’ roll had been long overdue for a rebirth. Thankfully, the stockpile of capable luminaries has not been in short supply over the past few years.

Boare - "playdatshit"

The world is in the midst of an electronic music renaissance, and you find most of this boon of producers laying claim to the club-friendly, bass-dropping variety, holing up in the the free-flowing world of hip-hop beatmaking or pitching their tent on the out-there, boundary-pushing EDM camp.

Broncho - "Class Historian"

Broncho has never been hurting in the hook department. The success of the trio’s 2011 debut, Can’t Get Past the Lips, was predicated mostly on its ability to marry melodies with kinetic guitar riffs and anarchic energy. Yet we’ve heard nothing to the degree of pure pop catchiness on display in “Class Historian,” the new single from Broncho’s upcoming sophomore album, Just Enough Hip to Be Woman.

Manmade Objects - Monuments

No one wants to be forgotten; everyone wants some sort of legacy, a mark they leave behind as they exit this life for whatever lies beyond.

And for as long as there has been death, there have been monuments — whether austere or understated, abstract or concrete, prominent or tucked away in private — erected by the ones they loved to assure that remembrance, at least for a time.

Local musicians to play fundraiser for Mindy's Memory Primate Sanctuary


Charles Martin August 5th, 2010

Brain lesions, Ebola virus, stroke, plague and drug-induced seizures. That was the life 55 long-tailed macaque monkeys left behind when In Defense of Animals organized a mass primate relocation in July from an insolvent toxicology lab to habitats throughout the country. Eight of those monkeys were taken in by Mindy's Memory Primate Sanctuary in Newcastle.

Robert Ingersoll, Mindy's Memory board president, said the 12-year-old sanctuary rarely takes in more than five monkeys in any given year, so absorbing eight new residents has had an immediate financial impact on the group.

In response, Norman's Chouse, 717 W. Boyd, will host a fundraiser from 3-7 p.m. Sunday, where The Lily Guild and Terry "Buffalo" Ware are slated to perform. A silent auction will feature artwork, local restaurant meals, signed copies of Elizabeth Hess' book "Nim Chimpsky: The Chimp Who Would be Human," and a behind-the-scenes tour of the sanctuary.

Ingersoll said Mindy's Memory currently houses 88 monkeys, half of which were saved from labs, while the other half were former pets. Because of insurance and safety reasons, the sanctuary is closed to the public, so Ingersoll said it has to rely on private contributions to keep the facility running.

"It costs a lot of money to build an enclosure," he said. "There's also a warming house and the other things you have to do in order to prepare for eight monkeys who will live out their lives in the sanctuary."

Donations will be taken at the door. For more information, visit www.mindysmem.org. "Charles Martin
