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.

Four movies. One giant screen.

Starting Thursday, Science Museum Oklahoma, 2100 N.E. 52nd, plays host to its annual Film Fest, featuring four IMAX movies focused on the wonder (and occasional ire) of Mother Nature.

From Thursday to Sunday, and again on Sept. 18-21, film lovers can purchase a Film Fest pass that allows them to see the three films at their leisure, plus "Stormchasers" anytime through Halloween.

"Grand Canyon Adventure: River at Risk" takes viewers on a journey down the Colorado River, with Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and "The Serpent and the Rainbow" anthropologist Wade Davis as your guides. The pair investigates the ecological changes that have resulted in part of the river drying up.

In his April review, Gazette critic Doug Bentin said of "Grand Canyon Adventure": "The photography is superb. If you've never seen one of these glorious nature studies in the large IMAX format, you have missed a movie experience like no other. The movie is above and all around you."

"Wildfire" focuses on parachuting firefighters who battle (and sometimes intentionally start) roaring flames in such locales as California, Idaho and Australia. "Wolves" observes the wild animal in its natural habitat.

Finally, "Stormchasers" follows those who follow tornadoes for fun and profit. In his May review, Gazette arts and entertainment editor Joe Wertz wrote, "The images and sounds captured in 'Stormchasers' are immersive, especially when projected on the panoramic screen of the OmniDome. In fact, some of the scenes "¦ are downright stomach-turning."

Passes are $30 for adults and $25 for seniors and children. For more information, all 602-6664. "Rod Lott
