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.

Move over, Beethoven. Here come the Brits.

The University of Oklahoma's Catlett Music Center, 500 W. Boyd in Norman, will be stricken with Beatlemania as the mop-top tribute band 1964 ... the Tribute performs 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday. 1964 recreates the mid-'60s Beatles for a concert Rolling Stone dubbed "the best Beatles tribute on Earth."

Andy Babiuk, author of "Beatles Gear," and's Russ Lease will give a 6 p.m. presentation on the history of The Beatles both nights. Babiuk has written about the band's legacy and history, and has performed as a musician with other bands on "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" and "The Sopranos."

Lease has also appeared on television, displaying his collection of suits originally owned by Beatles members. Some of the his memorabilia will be on display at the shows this weekend.
Carl Rath, associate professor of music at OU, said he has been involved in bringing the group to campus since 1996 as a part of his Beatles history class.

"They're the No. 1 Beatles show in the world," he said. "They play exact replica instruments, and the guy who played Paul (McCartney) learned to play lefthanded. Vocally, they blow everyone else off the stage."

Tickets are $25 for adults and $15 for children in advance, or $30 and $20
at the door, respectively. For more information, call 325-4101. "LeighAnne Manwarren
