School's out w/Flaming Lips' Drozd, The Turtles, Black Angels

The Academy of Contemporary Music at the University of Central Oklahoma (ACM@UCO) has a full calendar for the rockin' month of May. It all kicks off days before with its next master class featuring Mark Volman - AKA Flo - of 1960s band the Turtles on April 29. The Los Angeles native found fame with his band's 1967 hit single "Happy Together," and will engage students with an in-depth discussion of his career and performance. On April 30, The Turtles featuring Flo and & Eddie will perform at an ACM@UCO fundraiser.

On May 4, ACM@UCO will hold its inaugural graduation ceremonies, bidding farewell to its first class of students, including those who have landed high-profile jobs in the music industry. Flaming Lips multi-instrumentalist and former master class speaker Steven Drozd is confirmed as the special guest speaker for the event.

In addition, 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 10, ACM@UCO will host a master class with guitar legend Robben Ford. 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.
