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.

Septemberfest is art, food, stories and all things that celebrate the state of Oklahoma

The festival showcases the state's culture through artwork, storytelling, historical exhibits and live performances.

10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday

Between the days of Popsicles, poolside adventures and the crisp, leaf-strewn days of fall, comes Septemberfest.

Hosted by Gov. Brad Henry and first lady Kim Henry, the 14th annual Septemberfest includes a host of events and activities for the entire family.

The festivities will take place at the Oklahoma Governor's Mansion, 820 N.E. 23rd; the Oklahoma History Center, 2401 N. Laird; and, for the first time, the Harn Homestead, 1721 N. Lincoln.

About 25,000 people attended the event last year, which was spread throughout the 14 acres of the Governor's Mansion, said festival co-chair Lori Sutton.

"Ultimately, Septemberfest is a day where you can bring the entire family, not spend a penny, and yet be entertained and have a great day," she said. "The phrase that goes with Septemberfest is, 'Celebration of all things Oklahoma.'" 

The festival showcases the state's culture through artwork, storytelling, historical exhibits and live performances. An appearance by the Oklahoma City Thunder Girls, a hay bale maze and an abundance of food are all on the agenda.

Septemberfest is 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. The festival, which includes admission to the Oklahoma History Center and Harn Homestead, is free. For more information, call 557-0198. "Ta'Chelle Jones
