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.

Rock the baby


Edmond rapper Josh Sallee is on the bill for Saturday’s “Rock-a-bye-Baby” benefit concert.

Courtney Silva April 20th, 2011

Performing for a good cause is something in which Bobby Reed believes. His band, The Guilt Racket, will play along with four other artists in “Rock-a-bye- Baby,” a benefit concert to raise money for the March of Dimes, 7:30 p.m. Saturday at The Conservatory, 8911 N.

Reed, a vocalist and guitarist for The Guilt Racket, said that he was happy to be involved with the planning of the show.

“I was looking for a way to help out and was approached about doing the concert to benefit March of Dimes,” he said. “It was perfect timing. We got a lot of great bands to participate.”

Taking the stage along with The Guilt Racket will be Josh Sallee, Good Morning Grizzly, Somerset West and Running from Tomorrow. Reed said all of the acts were more than willing to show up for the cause.

“All of the other bands were incredibly receptive,” he said. “Oklahoma has lots of generous and kindhearted people who are willing to help out when it comes to causes like this one. It should be a fun show.”

Tickets for “Rock-a-bye-Baby” are $5 in advance and $8 at the door. For more information, call 213-6462 or visit conservatoryokc.com. —Courtney Silva
