TJ Mayes - "When Love Comes Down"

’50s era rock ’n’ roll had been long overdue for a rebirth. Thankfully, the stockpile of capable luminaries has not been in short supply over the past few years.

Boare - "playdatshit"

The world is in the midst of an electronic music renaissance, and you find most of this boon of producers laying claim to the club-friendly, bass-dropping variety, holing up in the the free-flowing world of hip-hop beatmaking or pitching their tent on the out-there, boundary-pushing EDM camp.

Broncho - "Class Historian"

Broncho has never been hurting in the hook department. The success of the trio’s 2011 debut, Can’t Get Past the Lips, was predicated mostly on its ability to marry melodies with kinetic guitar riffs and anarchic energy. Yet we’ve heard nothing to the degree of pure pop catchiness on display in “Class Historian,” the new single from Broncho’s upcoming sophomore album, Just Enough Hip to Be Woman.

Manmade Objects - Monuments

No one wants to be forgotten; everyone wants some sort of legacy, a mark they leave behind as they exit this life for whatever lies beyond.

And for as long as there has been death, there have been monuments — whether austere or understated, abstract or concrete, prominent or tucked away in private — erected by the ones they loved to assure that remembrance, at least for a time.

Admirals - Amidst the Blue

Sometimes it helps to not be very good.

Some of the best albums and artists were born out of happy accidents owed to varying degrees of early suckage — the perfect note or chord for a song found by missing the one you are aiming for, failed mimicry of an idol bearing something entirely new and great instead.

The great outdoors

The Zoo and Frontier City provide outdoor tunes

Rod Lott April 5th, 2011

One of the best things about spring? Looking forward to summer’s outdoor concerts.

Arguably the metro’s premiere venue for such is the OKC Zoo Amphitheatre, 2101 N.E. 50th. And it has extra reason to celebrate its summer concert series: a 75th anniversary. Already announced is a loud, May 13 bow with Avenged Sevenfold, Three Days Grace and Bullet for My Valentine. On the next night, go south — as in Southern rock — with Lynyrd Skynyrd and ZZ Top sharing the bill. On July 23, Yes and Asia touch down, with Tim McGraw (pictured) scheduled for Aug. 2. More announcements are forthcoming.

For more information, call 364-3700 or visit zooamp.com. Frontier City, 11501 N. Interstate 35 Service Road, kicks off its summer concert series on April 30 with Christian artists Red, Addison Road and KJ-52. Hardrock group Switchfoot (Aug. 13) and rapper Sean Kingston (Aug. 20) are slated to appear, as are oldies acts KC and the Sunshine Band (June 4), Rick Springfield (June 11), Eddie Money (June 18) and Blood, Sweat & Tears (July 23).

For more information, call 478-2140 or visit frontiercity.com. —Rod Lott
