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.

Yuval Waldman returns for the Holiday Concert Under the Dome.

Violins, Christmas concertos and the acoustics of the Gold Dome building will combine to create one unforgettable night of music.

The University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma is bringing back its Holiday Concert Under the Dome with Yuval Waldman.

The internationally renowned Waldman is an artist-in-residence at USAO and has worked with the university on other concerts. With his roots in Russia, he’s performed all over the globe.

Waldman performed a violin concert in March focused on music of oppression and liberation. All of the works were from composers who were killed during the Holocaust or persecuted by Soviet Communist regimes.

“We have a long-standing and very warm relationship with Yuval, so this is just one of the ways we cultivate that relationship,” said USAO spokesman Rob Vollmar.

Waldman chose the iconic Gold Dome, 1112 N.W. 23rd, for the concert because of the acoustics of the building and the intimate atmosphere. Also, he and USAO figured they would draw a bigger crowd if it was held in Oklahoma City, instead of USAO’s home base in Chickasha.

Waldman will pair with a choir from the Harding Fine Arts Academy for some carols. The choir plans to sing a carol in Spanish and one in Haitian. Tickets are $10-$20, and the concert begins 3 p.m. Sunday.

“It’s going to be a very cosmopolitan Christmas concert experience that will be like a world tour of how people celebrate Christmas all around and during different periods of time,” Vollmar said.
