Dustin Prinz - Eleven

Few musicians take the time to master their instrument in the way that Oklahoma City singer-songwriter Dustin Prinz has; he’s a guitar virtuoso in every sense of the word, and Eleven gives him the chance to show just how far he can push that skill.

Horse Thief – Fear in Bliss

Listening to Horse Thief’s previous release — the haphazardly melodramatic Grow Deep, Grow Wild — felt like a chore. Whatever potential the Oklahoma City folk-pop act demonstrated on the EP was obscured behind a formulaic, contrived and ultimately hollow cloud. But it at least offered a glimmer of promise for a band consisting of, frankly, five pretty talented dudes. Critics saw it; the band’s management saw it; its current label, Bella Union, saw it; and its increasingly fervid fan base saw it.

Colourmusic — May You Marry Rich

There’s always a sense of danger when debuting songs in a live setting and playing them well. Without having heard the studio versions, expectations are set according to the live incarnations. But capturing the breadth of free-flowing atmosphere and sheer volume on a disc, vinyl or digital file isn’t the easiest thing to do, especially for a band as vociferous as Colourmusic.

Em and the MotherSuperiors — Churches into Theaters

As titles go, Churches into Theaters is an apt descriptor for the debut album from Oklahoma City rockers Em and the MotherSuperiors. It’s a reverential record, one that shares the gospel of classic rock, blues and soul but embraces the need to refashion it for modern times, channeling The Dead Weather, Grace Potter and Cage the Elephant along the way.

Who: Xiu Xiu
When: Tuesday at The Conservatory
Why: As experimental indie rock goes, these guys are some of the best.

Who: Feist
When: April 14 at Cain's Ballroom, Tulsa
Why: Leslie Feist makes music that is catchy, unique and oh-so-hip.

Who: The Mars Volta
When: April 15 at Cain's Ballroom, Tulsa
Why: This prog-rock act is apparently amazing live. Plus, it will satisfy that deep, dark secret love you harbor for your dad's old Jethro Tull and King Crimson albums.

Who: Bon Jovi
When: April 15 at the Ford Center
Why: Your Camaro is going to be there anyway, so what else is there to do? Comb out your mullet, put on your best sleeveless tee and get ready to be rocked.

Who: Kanye West
When: April 29 at the Ford Center
Why: Because if you don't, Kanye's ego will hunt you down. He'll be touring with N.E.R.D, Rihanna and Lupe Fiasco. 

Who: Tim McGraw
When: May 30 at the Ford Center
Why: I'm a little bit country (the part that I'm ashamed of), but McGraw's crooning about being an "Indian Outlaw" is good enough for me. "Jenny Coon Peterson
