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.

Kierston White - Don't Write Love Songs

The Tequila Songbirds have become just as beloved as about any group around these parts. And how could they not?

Featuring a revolving cast of the Sooner State’s most badass female performers, it’s a power hour of some of the best songwriting coming out of central Oklahoma. Sure, they might not technically be family, but they are clearly a band of sisters all the same, bonded by the same brand of whiskey running through their veins.

Depth & Current - Dysrhythmia

"Overproduced" is a term thrown around all too indiscreetly nowadays, usually applied when the thing that sticks out about a song or album is how it sounds rather than how it is constructed. Yet some of the most compelling albums ever crafted embodied a certain aesthetic that was just as skillfully and meticulously put together as any Bob Dylan or Miles Davis record — which is to say production is as crucial to our enjoyment of music as much as anything else; it's also the most overlooked.

Weak Knees - “IceBevo”

Indie rock has been in a good place as of late. Not caring about being cool is the new cool, and a couple of dudes on guitar, bass and drums can make catchy, earworm songs without being armed to the gills with computer software and vintage synthesizers.

Danny Masterson, star of Fox's long-running sitcom "That 70's Show," will DJ on May 9 at the Electro Lounge.
 
Masterson, aka DJ MomJeans, started DJ'ing in 2000 just for fun, but it eventually turned into a passion.
 
"I just had a lot of records. I started DJ'ing with a friend at a club. I would just come in and play some of my records, too," Masterson explained, "I started doing it every week. Then, I became good friends with DJ AM and he told me I needed to started mixing my songs together so the beats match, and I was like, 'What's that?' When he showed me that, it opened up this whole new world, and that's where the technique comes in."
 
UNPLANNED STOP
Masterson is touring with DJ Steve Aoki. The stop in OKC wasn't originally planned until the pair met Electro Lounge DJ John Bourke at this year's South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas.
 
"We met John ... and he was fucking great," Masterson said, "That's why we got excited to come through Oklahoma. He was like, 'You guys coming through Oklahoma City?' and we were like, 'Sure! How much money?' and he said, 'Not much,' but we said, 'Fuck it.'" "Graham Lee Brewer
