Going Live

Live on the Plaza is tonight.

You guys, rejoice. After three months of living like the mole people, we can finally venture back outside without bursting into flames and/or instantly dehydrating. It’s almost like we’re living on a habitable human planet again!

So what should we do with this newfound, above-ground freedom? Party. I was hoping for a “Return of the Jedi”-style Ewok village extravaganza, but tonight’s Live on the Plaza is a close second.

This month, Live on the Plaza will feature the kick-off of The Society, a new artists’ collective (aka, a nest of hippies). The launch party will feature live music, live painting by Dusty Gilpin and Dylan Bradway, food and art vendors.

Cole Dewey Designs and Warpaint Clothing will present film screenings (of a Native American artist doc and skateboarding, respectively), while there will be open houses at the new Urban WineWorks, Wild.Flower, Collected Thread and more. And when you get hungry (living off reconstituted foodstuffs in your underground warren can get ho-hum) stop in at Saints or place an order at one of the food trucks.

Welcome back to society, friends.

Water war

Stakes are big in the battle over water rights.

The rain came down so hard, it resembled waves crashing outside the floor-to-ceiling windows on the third floor of the Oklahoma City University Meinders School of Business building.

Tribe Jibe


Gazette staff
Racial stereotypes muck things up when we least expect it, like in the recent kerfuffle about whether blondhaired, blue-eyed Elizabeth Warren, the Democratic U.S. Senate candidate in Massachusetts, is Native American.

Indian bummer


Gazette staff
Author and Muskogee native Sarah Vowell once commented that being part Cherokee in Oklahoma “is about as rare and remarkable as being a Michael Jordan fan in Chicago. I mean, who isn’t?” But don’t tell that to Sen. Scott Brown, R-Mass., who can’t seem to get past the remarkableness of Democratic candidate Elizabeth Warren’s Cherokee heritage.

Tim Farley
