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.

Poison

If you want to chat with Poison front man Bret Michaels before Saturday's show at the Zoo Amphitheatre, you are gonna have to catch him. Whenever the band comes to Oklahoma City to play, Michaels likes to spend time before the show unwinding by riding his mountain bike from the venue to Remington Park.

"Sometimes I like to ride up to fans or people tailgating in the parking lot and just say, 'Hey,'" he said.

Poison will play the Zoo Amphitheatre the day after sharing a stage with dozens of other Eighties rock, glam and metal bands at the four-day Rocklahoma music festival that starts Thursday and ends Sunday in Pryor. What could be better than four days of camping to the soothing songs of Ratt, Quiet Riot, Slaughter, Twisted Sister and L.A. Guns?

NEW ALBUM
Michaels said the band, which recently released "Poison'd" " an album of covers of such artists as The Who, David Bowie, The Cars and KISS " always has an "awesome" time in Oklahoma and is looking forward to playing its hits, some of the covers and a few less-familiar tracks for fans.

"Fans have been screaming for some album tracks " songs that weren't necessarily singles, but the ones people got into when they bought the albums," he said. "Joe Wertz
