Turn off the TV and turn up the fun with games everyone can enjoy.


Features

Louis Fowler

Coffeehouse culture

Just why are we addicted to these places?


Food and Drink Features

Louis Fowler
For many people, coffee is just something you slosh out of a dirty convenience store decanter and gulp down each morning.

Citizen Fred — Citizen Fred


Rock

Louis Fowler
I’d be lying if I said I didn’t have a raucous good time with Citizen Fred’s self-titled disc. With guttural vocals and crunching guitars, it sounds like the background music to a scene in a buddy-cop film where the mismatched partners go into a sleazy strip club to shake down perps.

Dirty Red & the Soulshakers — Soul Shakin’


Rock

Louis Fowler
I know most purists would look middle-aged white guys playing soul music and immediately pass — I can’t count how many times I have — but damned if Dirty Red & the Soulshakers don’t rock the joint for all of its juke, lack of pigment notwithstanding.

Michael Summers — More


Jazz

Louis Fowler
This honky cat is really something else! Need proof? Just take a listen to his swingin’ version of the Elton John classic. Deep bass grooves, jaunty piano, smooth trumpet and sexy, crystalline vocals: This is the version to which all others now must live up.

Music

Louis Fowler
While Oklahoma-born singer-songwriter Luke Dick’s base of operations is currently New York City, it doesn’t mean he’s completely left his Okie roots behind.

Straight outta high school

Local rapper Kulprit D comes of age in the hip-hop game with his latest project.


Music

Louis Fowler
How did Eazy-E get his nickname? What about Dr. Dre or Ice Cube or any other master MC with a moniker? Chances are few of them got it as part of a misunderstanding at high school.

The Flaming Lips’ latest cover album, Playing Hide and Seek with the Ghosts of Dawn, is a song-by-song remake of King Crimson’s 1969 classic, In the Court of the Crimson King. Naturally, it’s only available on hard-to-get, limited-edition colored vinyl.
