The fifth element

How does Norman-based jamtronica quartet Montu brighten up its already shiny live shows? With lights and lasers. Pew-pew-pew!


Music

Joshua Boydston
It’s all about creating something to remember — in every sense of the word — for the four-piece that started as a modest jam session between Godsy and keyboardist John Barkley on a single amplifier. A drummer in Colby Cowart followed before Russell came aboard, and it’s been a big party ever since.

White water

Washington’s Columbia Valley moves away from some American styles to produce white wines with an Old World sense of restraint.


Food and Drink Features

Greg Horton
Reason No. 1 to shop the Washington section of your favorite wine shop is probably price. According to Wine Spectator magazine’s Augustus Weed, “Exploring Washington’s white wines can be easy on the wallet, with most of the bottlings … priced at $20 or less.”

Sharing is caring

The state’s largest free music festival hopes a monthly wine-share will lure donors to ease the financial crunch of staging a three-day event.


Food and Drink Features

Charles Martin
Throwing a party is expensive. Even stocking cheap beer and snacks for a handful of friends can be pricey, so imagine preparing for 35,000 to 50,000 friends all descending on a small stretch of downtown Norman for a three-day festival with no ticket sales to help bring in the largest roster of musicians of any other Oklahoma music festival.
