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.

11 p.m. Saturday, Opolis Stage, 113 N. Crawford

Be prepared for a crazy kaleidoscope of psych-rock madness. The members of the Stillwater band, together since 2005, describe their sound as "hardcore and a little Oklahoma sex rock."

Founders Ryan Hendrix and Nick Turner, a London native, met 12 years ago at Oklahoma State University. Playing mostly local shows at first, the duo evolved to include a drummer and eventually added two more members.

Color is the driving force behind their inspiration. They became fascinated by Sir Isaac Newton's "Theory of Color and Sound" and decided to create albums that channeled a musical interpretation of a specific color. The band's first full-length, 2008's "F, Monday, Orange, February, Venus, Lunatic, 1 or 13," is a representation of orange. The second album, still in production, will be an interpretation of pink.

"'Orange' is supposed to be concept music expressed through children musicians. 'Pink' is what metal would have become if Black Sabbath had originally been a band of women instead of men," Hendrix said.

The group is well-known for the insanity and off-the-wall themes of its live shows. A previous set, dubbed "The Exercise Show," had the band working out while being painted by audience members and having sections of hair and clothes cut off. "Emily Hopkins
