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.

Poison

If you want to chat with Poison front man Bret Michaels before Saturday's show at the Zoo Amphitheatre, you are gonna have to catch him. Whenever the band comes to Oklahoma City to play, Michaels likes to spend time before the show unwinding by riding his mountain bike from the venue to Remington Park.

"Sometimes I like to ride up to fans or people tailgating in the parking lot and just say, 'Hey,'" he said.

Poison will play the Zoo Amphitheatre the day after sharing a stage with dozens of other Eighties rock, glam and metal bands at the four-day Rocklahoma music festival that starts Thursday and ends Sunday in Pryor. What could be better than four days of camping to the soothing songs of Ratt, Quiet Riot, Slaughter, Twisted Sister and L.A. Guns?

NEW ALBUM
Michaels said the band, which recently released "Poison'd" " an album of covers of such artists as The Who, David Bowie, The Cars and KISS " always has an "awesome" time in Oklahoma and is looking forward to playing its hits, some of the covers and a few less-familiar tracks for fans.

"Fans have been screaming for some album tracks " songs that weren't necessarily singles, but the ones people got into when they bought the albums," he said. "Joe Wertz
