'Crank' that


Letters to the Editor

Michael Hopkins
They say people in glass houses should not throw rocks. In his letter “Mistaken environmentalists” (Sept. 14, Gazette), Mickey McVay seems to suggest that those who say that humans might have contributed to climate change are ignorant idiots.

VOTD: It always feels like somebody’s watchin’ me

A creepy local song gets a creepy local video.

In the Oklahoma music scene, few are eerier than Norman's Magnificent Bird, and just last week, the band posted an odd, alluring video to YouTube, to go with the song “Nowhere to Hide.” All rainy and black-and-white, a pretty, pale ghost haunts a depressed English major around the University of Oklahoma's campus. Watch it below.

You can stream their album “Superdark Can Happen to Anyone” at their Bandcamp page for free, or purchase it for $9.99. Also, the track “Cowboys are Blue Because of What They Have to Do” is available for free download.

Twin Sister — In Heaven

NYC indie-pop dreamers concoct a solid debut album after an infectious single.


Indie

Matt Carney
Ever since “All Around and Away We Go” reminded me of Talking Heads last summer, I’ve kept my eyes out (and many fingers crossed) for flashes of Twin Sister’s name across the blogosphere. Much to my delight, it showed up last summer alongside fellow NYCers’ The Pains of Being Pure at Heart on a touring bill aimed at the Midwest, with a stop at OU’s campus (not three minutes’ walk from my house) right smack in the middle of it.

Do I hear a pub crawl?

Because what better, more appropriate way is there to support Norman Music Festival?

Five downtown Norman bars have teamed up to host a pub crawl benefit for Norman Music Festival Friday night. And you’re invited!

All it costs to hop from bar to bar before winding up at a show by one of Norman’s loudest, heaviest rock bands, Rainbows Are Free (pictured), is $15 before Friday ($20 the day of). The crawl starts at 9 p.m. and the show starts at 11.

Participating bars are Abner’s Ale House, Bill and Dee’s, Bison Witches, The Garage and The Blue Bonnet Bar, which also will host the show. Patrons may also redeem their tickets at the Blue Bonnet for a pub crawl finisher T-shirt, once it’s validated by all five bars.

It being Halloween, costumes are strongly encouraged. For those dressing up, there’ll be contests and prizes awarded. Proceeds go to support NMF, which is of course, a free music festival. So go drink a few beers and help keep it that way!
