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.

Rock the baby


Edmond rapper Josh Sallee is on the bill for Saturday’s “Rock-a-bye-Baby” benefit concert.

Courtney Silva April 20th, 2011

Performing for a good cause is something in which Bobby Reed believes. His band, The Guilt Racket, will play along with four other artists in “Rock-a-bye- Baby,” a benefit concert to raise money for the March of Dimes, 7:30 p.m. Saturday at The Conservatory, 8911 N.

Reed, a vocalist and guitarist for The Guilt Racket, said that he was happy to be involved with the planning of the show.

“I was looking for a way to help out and was approached about doing the concert to benefit March of Dimes,” he said. “It was perfect timing. We got a lot of great bands to participate.”

Taking the stage along with The Guilt Racket will be Josh Sallee, Good Morning Grizzly, Somerset West and Running from Tomorrow. Reed said all of the acts were more than willing to show up for the cause.

“All of the other bands were incredibly receptive,” he said. “Oklahoma has lots of generous and kindhearted people who are willing to help out when it comes to causes like this one. It should be a fun show.”

Tickets for “Rock-a-bye-Baby” are $5 in advance and $8 at the door. For more information, call 213-6462 or visit conservatoryokc.com. —Courtney Silva
