Admirals - Amidst the Blue

Sometimes it helps to not be very good.

Some of the best albums and artists were born out of happy accidents owed to varying degrees of early suckage — the perfect note or chord for a song found by missing the one you are aiming for, failed mimicry of an idol bearing something entirely new and great instead.

Kierston White - Don't Write Love Songs

The Tequila Songbirds have become just as beloved as about any group around these parts. And how could they not?

Featuring a revolving cast of the Sooner State’s most badass female performers, it’s a power hour of some of the best songwriting coming out of central Oklahoma. Sure, they might not technically be family, but they are clearly a band of sisters all the same, bonded by the same brand of whiskey running through their veins.

Depth & Current - Dysrhythmia

"Overproduced" is a term thrown around all too indiscreetly nowadays, usually applied when the thing that sticks out about a song or album is how it sounds rather than how it is constructed. Yet some of the most compelling albums ever crafted embodied a certain aesthetic that was just as skillfully and meticulously put together as any Bob Dylan or Miles Davis record — which is to say production is as crucial to our enjoyment of music as much as anything else; it's also the most overlooked.

Weak Knees - “IceBevo”

Indie rock has been in a good place as of late. Not caring about being cool is the new cool, and a couple of dudes on guitar, bass and drums can make catchy, earworm songs without being armed to the gills with computer software and vintage synthesizers.

Kyle Reid & the Low Swinging Chariots - “When I Was Young”

Every artist should be the star of their own creative life, which makes Kyle Reid’s steps out of the shadows of the many ensembles and supporting roles he has played in Oklahoma bands over the years to front and center on stage feel like a just journey.

Here's your Chance


Greyson Chance appears Saturday with Sherree Chamberlain, At Long Last and Theater Breaks Loose.

Stephen Carradini February 16th, 2011

It was a banner 2010 for 13-year-old Edmondite Greyson Chance, whose piano-pop skills were thrust into the spotlight via a school performance that caught fire on YouTube.

He’ll play two charity concerts for Children’s Miracle Network of Oklahoma, 1 and 7 p.m. Saturday at Edmond Santa Fe High School, 1901 W. 15th in Edmond.

OKG: How is your daily life different now?

Chance: Life is a lot different! But I am loving every minute of it.

My friends nor family treat me differently; I am still Greyson. My schedule is usually very busy, but like I said, I love it!

OKG: Do you feel any pressure to succeed, given your sudden, massive scale of exposure?

Chance: Not really. I try to have a positive attitude towards everything.

If I am positive, the outcome should be positive.

OKG: Do you plan on making a career of it?

Chance: Of course! I am touring and working on the record as we speak.

This has always been my dream. I am trying my hardest and the longest I can to reach that ultimate level.

OKG: You’ve already met Lady Gaga. Anyone else you would like to meet, collaborate or tour with?

Chance: Taylor Swift. She is such a incredible pop icon and such an amazing songwriter. She seems like a very sweet girl.

Tickets are $20-$30. For more information, visit stubwire.com. —Stephen Carradini
