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.

Who: Xiu Xiu
When: Tuesday at The Conservatory
Why: As experimental indie rock goes, these guys are some of the best.

Who: Feist
When: April 14 at Cain's Ballroom, Tulsa
Why: Leslie Feist makes music that is catchy, unique and oh-so-hip.

Who: The Mars Volta
When: April 15 at Cain's Ballroom, Tulsa
Why: This prog-rock act is apparently amazing live. Plus, it will satisfy that deep, dark secret love you harbor for your dad's old Jethro Tull and King Crimson albums.

Who: Bon Jovi
When: April 15 at the Ford Center
Why: Your Camaro is going to be there anyway, so what else is there to do? Comb out your mullet, put on your best sleeveless tee and get ready to be rocked.

Who: Kanye West
When: April 29 at the Ford Center
Why: Because if you don't, Kanye's ego will hunt you down. He'll be touring with N.E.R.D, Rihanna and Lupe Fiasco. 

Who: Tim McGraw
When: May 30 at the Ford Center
Why: I'm a little bit country (the part that I'm ashamed of), but McGraw's crooning about being an "Indian Outlaw" is good enough for me. "Jenny Coon Peterson
