Word on the street

The Curbside Chronicle aims to bring the homeless into your homes, one issue at a time.


News

Louis Fowler
A new newspaper has hit the streets of Oklahoma City, one that is made and sold by the people who live on the streets. The Curbside Chronicle is the metro’s attempt at a social enterprise magazine, also called a “street paper,” that provides an area’s homeless community with both a voice and a means of income.

If you’re anybody in the local music scene, chances are you’ve come across Casey Friedman.

Aisha Eustache — Love & Addiction


Eclectic

Louis Fowler
These days, it’s hard to find that classically soulful R&B sound. With so many manufactured pop divas’ vocal trills and high-pitched squeaks masquerading as music, R&B sadly has become a vapid wasteland.

Nina Medley — Red Dirt Redemption


Eclectic

Louis Fowler
Bethany blues chanteuse Nina Medley is, if the title track of her latest album is to be believed, “worn out on the Delta blues” and just looking for some “red dirt redemption.”

Mountain Smoke — Roads Well Traveled


Country

Louis Fowler
As I plopped Mountain Smoke’s Roads Well Traveled into the CD player, I dreaded the worst, having been burnt out by a glut of third-rate bluegrass (with jam bands running a close second). I was surprised how much I liked — nay, loved — this album.

Kali Ra — Electric Living


Rock

Louis Fowler
Dressing in black and smoking Clove cigarettes may be in my past, but my love of darkly introspective music has stayed, no matter my mood. It’s not unusual to see me smiling while blasting The Cure’s Faith, David Bowie’s Low or, now, Oklahoma City act Kali Ra’s debut, Electric Living.

Coming attractions

Nearly wiped out by a recent twister, the city’s iconic Winchester Drive In Theatre promises a swift reboot.


Features

Louis Fowler
When May’s bout of wicked weather rampaged across the metro, images of the devastation of Moore overshadowed — and rightly so — the comparatively minor destruction in Oklahoma City. After heavy winds calmed and the flooding subsided, many area businesses found themselves having to pick up their own pieces.

Beverly fills

The metro's historic pancake diner offers up more than just the traditional breakfast fare.


Restaurant Reviews

Louis Fowler
Beverly’s Pancake House
3115 Northwest Expressway
848-5050

What works:
It’s arguably the best diner food in Oklahoma City. Of course, I haven’t eaten at all the diners. Yet.
What needs work:
Please make sure you get my order correct next time. No hard feelings.
Tip(s):
Open 24 hours, it’s a much better choice than McDonald’s at 3 a.m.

Moore, please

Many of Moore’s restaurants want you to know they’re open for business and ready to take your order.


Food and Drink Features

Louis Fowler
A number of Moore’s restaurants are still feeling the effects of the devastating weather the city endured in May.

Maurice Johnson — Peace, Love & Jazz


Jazz

Louis Fowler
A swanky, ’60s cocktail vibe permeates Oklahoma City jazz guitarist Maurice Johnson’s Peace, Love & Jazz, right from the opening track, “In and Out,” which could have been the theme song to a heist caper starring Steve McQueen and Natalie Wood. It sounds like Burt Bacharach meets George Benson, with smooth melodic grooves hinting at just a little bit of underlying danger.
