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.

DJs celebrate Friday the 13th with records, blood

Friday's third annual Disco Bloodbath at The Conservatory is not your parents' shindig from the Seventies, but a costume party with several different DJs providing tunes to a crowd displaying fake blood on their clothing and skin.

Austin Greene, promoter for J.A.R. Productions, said the idea for the first Disco Bloodbath came when he and his friends noticed Oklahoma City nightlife lacked theme parties.

"We did it partly because there wasn't anything going on in the city that we wanted to do. So we decided to throw our own party," Greene said. "It was about going out and having a wild night out instead of a tame one, It was a ritual of getting ready and looking the most outrageous possible."

ATTENDANCE
Getting Disco Bloodbath off the pages and into OKC nightlife took a bit of convincing, however. Initially, venues were unsure if a blood-and-gore rave party would go over well in the state.

Worries were unfounded, as Greene said the first Disco Bloodbath found an audience looking for something different and the second one brought in even more people.

DJ Brian Zero said last year's party attracted about 400 people, some traveling from Missouri and Texas.

"There's a different variety of people that come: some people from Bricktown, concert people and a lot of the Goth crowd," Zero said. "It's a very diverse crowd." "Heather Caliendo
