Flaming Lips' Steven Drozd to speak at ACM@UCO's first graduation ceremony
The Academy of Contemporary Music at the University of Central Oklahoma (ACM@UCO) has a full calendar for the rockin’ month of May.
Getting it started a bit early, The Turtles featuring Flo and & Eddie will perform tonight at an ACM@UCO fundraiser. Mark Volman – AKA Flo – of 1960s band the Turtles was set to give a master class at the school Friday, according to a news release. The Los Angeles native found fame with his band’s 1967 hit single “Happy Together,” and he was invited to give students an in-depth discussion of his career and performance.
On May 4, ACM@UCO will have its inaugural graduation ceremonies, bidding farewell to its first class of students, including those who have landed high-profile jobs in the music industry. Multi-instrumentalist and former master class speaker Steven Drozd of Oklahoma City-based psychedelic rockers The Flaming Lips is confirmed as the special guest speaker for the event.
On May 5, 60 ACM@UCO-affiliated bands will perform across 11 venues in Oklahoma City’s historic district as part of ACM@UCO’s Bricktown Takeover.
On May 7, ACM@UCO’s student-run Performance Lab will play host to a performance by Man Man, followed by The Black Angels on May 20.
On May 10, ACM@UCO will host a master class with guitar legend Robben Ford.
