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.

$10 on Friday, $5 on Saturday.

He's known as Zakk Flash, and he can't wait to see his girlfriend decapitated.

After all, she is one of the stars of "Sewer Chewer," James Hawley's campy, locally filmed B horror movie that's screening this weekend at the Reel Renegades Horrorfest.

"She has a pretty gruesome death," he said.

Flash organized the music and movies for the festival, which is hosted by the Hidden Castle, 1309 24th S.W. in Norman. He said he has always enjoyed watching horror movies and caught the bug for them at an early age.

"I think the first horror movie I saw was 'Redneck Zombies,' and it was absolutely awful," he said. "It was a really bad movie, but I loved it. It was campy, and it wasn't really scary, because it was funny."

The festival starts 4:30 p.m. Friday and kicks off with performances by bands that supplied the movies' soundtracks, including Billy Joe Winghead, Shark Reppelant and Captain Eyeball.

Also, there will be blood at a workshop by Tulsa's Stirling FX, where effects gurus will teach festivalgoers about the art of making horror-movie magic.

Nine films will be screened on Saturday, including "Frankenpimp," Kevin Strange's "CockHammer" and Cory J. Udler's "Incest Death Squad."

"Oklahoma is building a pretty big horror following," Flash said. "We are really excited about that."

He noted that the festival will be fun, even if attendees aren't as crazy about blood and guts as he is.

"Cheap beer, cheap food, comfy seating," he said. "We are going to be rocking out all day and all night."

Admission is $10 on Friday, $5 on Saturday. For more information, call 701-0870 or visit "Adam Kemp
