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.

One Tree Hill' singer plans Norman show

If you haven't seen Ryan Lindsey live, chances are you've already heard him. After signing a publishing deal, his songs have been featured in the strangest of places, from the soundtrack to indie film "American Teen" and The CW's "One Tree Hill" to finding airtime in Starbucks, Old Navy and The Gap.

"I've seen an increase in awareness of me from people, whether on MySpace or iTunes or whatever, but it hasn't been huge," Lindsey said. "When I first got those things, I was excited, and then I realized that they don't mean anything unless they work. It's better than not having my music played at The Gap, but you just hope some person shopping is going to hear it, like it and then tell everyone about it. Then come see me play at Opolis. That has to keep happening to make a big difference."

It should be noted, however, that even if you have already seen Lindsey, it might be time to take another look. The singer joins Umbrellas and Brine Webb for a 9 p.m. Friday show at Norman's Opolis, 113 N. Crawford.

Of late, Lindsey's one-man act has frequently fleshed out live into a full band, lending an entirely different to sound to his older material, as well as giving him a greater sonic spectrum for his new songs. Just don't expect to hear all of those fresh tunes right away.

"I'm working on a lot of new songs, trying to figure out what to do with them," he said. "I'm fighting between just getting them all out there or being 'smart' and waiting for the right time, but when's the right time? Right?"

Tickets for Friday's show are $8 in advance and $10 at the door. "Becky Carman
