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.

Rock culture will be paired up with the bargain-hunting lifestyle Saturday at The Conservatory for the 5th Quasi-Annual Garage Sale/Show & Birthday Party.

The idea for the sale came from Jenny Nickell of Norman, whose husband plays in punk band The Dwarves. They had movies, music, magazines and interesting memorabilia to get rid of, but a traditional garage sale just didn't seem the right venue.

The first was held in 2002.

One can expect lots of CDs, DVDs and posters, plus:
" members of one of the featured bands will be selling records from their personal collections;
" local ceramic artist Nicole Moan will be there with some one-of-a-kind switch plates and tiles;
" will offer clothes and accessories;
" and other items up for grabs include everything from vintage swimwear to "Star Wars" collectibles. 

Bands of wildly varying stripes will perform, including:
" The R.I.P. Tides,
" Los Hijos Del Diablo,
" Crocodile,
" I Resign,
" Stevedore,
" Pigpen's Mess,
" Son of Sam Walton and
" Klipspringer. 

"I really couldn't be prouder of this year's lineup," said Hendrickson, one of the event's founders. "This is a community service event designed to highlight the local music scene. It's a great opportunity to come out and get a sampling of what the state has to offer." "Tory Troutman
