Winging it

Purple martins seeking a rest stop on their route to Brazil find resistance in OKC.


News

Mark Beutler
Purple martins have been a staple in our grandmothers’ backyards for generations. The birds have a long history with humans and are generally regarded as a welcome addition to any landscape. But thousands of the birds have descended on downtown Oklahoma City in the past several weeks, and are finding their surroundings anything but hospitable.

Autumn scenes

The drought will dull fall foliage displays, but OKC still boasts some great spots to celebrate fall.


News

Kevan Goff-Parker
Instead of the spicy-mustards, chili-reds and burnt-orange arrays of vibrantly hued leaves that usually adorn Oklahoma City trees in the fall, this summer’s drought is likely to leave local trees bare or their leaves brown as early defoliation takes its toll.

Neon colors

Utah-based dance-rockers Neon Trees stopped by Cain’s Ballroom last week, much to the delight of its dedicated fan base.

Nathan Winfrey
Utah-based rockers Neon Trees spent a hot summer night setting fire to Tulsa’s legendary Cain’s Ballroom on June 19. Rounding out the aural palette were Smallpools, a lively L.A. powerhouse, and Nightmare and the Cat, a cadre of black-clad Brit/American alt-rockers. Neon Trees’ latest record, Pop Psychology, was the night’s flux capacitor, transporting all who were willing to a neon-soaked parallel universe.
