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.

Kierston White - Don't Write Love Songs

The Tequila Songbirds have become just as beloved as about any group around these parts. And how could they not?

Featuring a revolving cast of the Sooner State’s most badass female performers, it’s a power hour of some of the best songwriting coming out of central Oklahoma. Sure, they might not technically be family, but they are clearly a band of sisters all the same, bonded by the same brand of whiskey running through their veins.

Depth & Current - Dysrhythmia

"Overproduced" is a term thrown around all too indiscreetly nowadays, usually applied when the thing that sticks out about a song or album is how it sounds rather than how it is constructed. Yet some of the most compelling albums ever crafted embodied a certain aesthetic that was just as skillfully and meticulously put together as any Bob Dylan or Miles Davis record — which is to say production is as crucial to our enjoyment of music as much as anything else; it's also the most overlooked.

Weak Knees - “IceBevo”

Indie rock has been in a good place as of late. Not caring about being cool is the new cool, and a couple of dudes on guitar, bass and drums can make catchy, earworm songs without being armed to the gills with computer software and vintage synthesizers.

Kyle Reid & the Low Swinging Chariots - “When I Was Young”

Every artist should be the star of their own creative life, which makes Kyle Reid’s steps out of the shadows of the many ensembles and supporting roles he has played in Oklahoma bands over the years to front and center on stage feel like a just journey.

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.
