Ready for a day at the beach, but the kids hate car rides and the grown-ups hate the gas prices? It will take longer to pack the car than the trip itself if your is Arcadia Lake in east Edmond.

With my three kids in tow, we visited not one, not two, but three beaches at Arcadia Lake. The lake is comprised of three separate parks — Spring Creek, Edmond and Central State — each with its own recreation wonderland of docks, playgrounds and, yes, swimming holes.
I don’t, because I’m 23. But somebody at ACM@UCO clearly does, as the school recently announced that Eddie Trunk will be teaching a master’s class on Oct. 5. Trunk hosts “That Metal Show,” which is currently in its eighth season since 2008. Regulars on the show include members of Anthrax, Pantera, Anvil, Black Sabbath and plenty of other bands that are likely to headline next year’s Rocklahoma festival.
English musician Simon Raymonde, most famous for playing bass for the Cocteau Twins in the ’80s and ’90s, will teach Sept. 27. His production work would ultimately prove influential on shoegaze music, so you probably owe Mr. Raymonde a serious debt of gratitude if you’ve ever enjoyed The Jesus and Mary Chain, Beach House or chillwave.
Previously ACM@UCO masters class instructors include Jackson Browne, Roger Daltry, Livia Tortella (Warner Bros. Records president), Joe Bonamassa and Steven Drozd of The Flaming Lips. At this point, they’re just showing off.

As someone who is doing his damnedest to lose more than three decades of
weight gain, it has taken years of self-inflicted embarrassment to
fully realize that “all you can eat” isn't a challenge, but a curse.

Shoegaze has its roots in the United Kingdom, but Oklahoma outfit Power Pyramid is doing it as well as anyone here or abroad. The four-piece started making noise with the release of a self-titled EP last fall, returning nearly a year later with its full-length debut The God Drums, a slow-burning, confident collection of endearingly lo-fi vignettes.
