IndianGiver - Understudies

There’s a difference between being derivative and being inspired by something, a line a lot of artists can’t seem to find — or at least don’t care to.

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.

For those who like their blood and guts interspersed with literary references, Disco Bloodbath is going highbrow this year. The fourth-annual gore-themed event takes over The Conservatory on Friday and features some of the choicest cuts from local DJs, as well as an excuse to don ghastly getups months ahead of Halloween.

Friday night's theme is "A Mid-Summer Night's Scream," and one of the event founders, Robyn Webb, is hoping to scare up a good crowd willing to plunge headlong into the Shakespearian theme.

"The music is a big part of it, of course," she said. "But I really like being able to dress up. What's the use of going out if no one is looking at you, and I'd rather be looked at because I've got an interesting outfit than just 'cause I'm a chick."

On tap for the DJ booth are Bone, Ostara, Ed Crunk, Serc, Brian Zero and Stoic, representing a wide range of electro, Eighties and techno dance music.

For this year's Bloodbath, Webb recommends fairy costumes, togas and anything playing to the theme. Copious amounts of blood splatter and flesh wounds are always a good start, too. Attendees are urged to dress for the event, but are warned on its flier that "you'll probably get at least a little bloody throughout the night, no matter what you wear."

Disco Bloodbath starts at 6 p.m. Friday at The Conservatory, 8911 N. Western. Tickets are $6 at the door.
