Indian bummer

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.

Rites of Passage

Wrongs make 'Rites.'


Thriller

Rod Lott
Rites of Passage's box art of boring actors’ faces should switch with the illustration adorning the actual disc: a play on the ol' skull and crossbones logo, but using a sock monkey and shotguns. That's what convinced me the film might be worth its 102 minutes. Ultimately, it's not, but its first half makes for an interesting mess.

Ripple Green — A Lungful


Rock

Joshua Boydston
Red Hot Chili Peppers and Kings of Leon are two of the biggest rock groups in the world, but you don’t see many bands trying to put the two together. It works better than you might think on Oklahoma City three-piece Ripple Green’s new EP, A Lungful, which speaks worlds of the members’ respective talents.

IndianGiver — Plafond EP


Indie

Zach Hale
If you were to peruse the “About” section of IndianGiver’s Facebook page, you’ll notice how the instruments attributed to each of the Oklahoma City band’s five members are described with downright flippancy: Dylan Jordan plays “sticks & animal skins,” while Jazzton Rodriguez earns his keep with “shanties & loud noises,” and so on.

Indian museum builds culture, future


State Sen. Kyle D. Loveless
An almost $4 billion economic impact will elevate our city and state once the American Indian Cultural Center and Museum is finished and opened. In addition to the economic benefits, however, there also would be tremendous cultural and artistic benefits that the AICCM would bring.
