Ryan Reid: Oklahoma rocker Ryan Reid often gets lumped in with his state’s Red Dirt scene, and though it’s not quite accurate, Reid takes it as a compliment. “It’s a badge of honor to say I came up with those guys,” Reid said. “But I’m definitely rock ’n’ roll. I love Otis Redding, I love Ray Charles, I love Sam Cooke. … Pearl Jam taught me a good melody, and Jeff Buckley taught me it was OK to be myself.” Now, Reid is celebrating the release of his dream record, Shine, with a 10 p.m. Friday party at Golden Light Cantina, 2906 S.W. Sixth Ave. “I finally was able to make one that no one had a hand in telling me how it was going to be produced,” Reid said. “It’s what I consider the very best version of me.” Cover is $7. Call 806-374-9237 or visit www.ryanreidmusic.com.

Don Conoscenti: Folk singer-songwriter Don Conoscenti – whose “The Other Side” became something of a survivor’s anthem following the 9/11 attacks – will perform for Panhandle PBS’s latest Yellow City Sounds Live concert at 7 p.m. Saturday at our studios, 2408 S. Jackson St. (Check out my interview with him here.) Seating for the free show will be limited, but the concert will be streamed live at panhandlePBS.org, on FM90 and on kacvfm.org, then used for a June 2 episode of Live Here.

Spoonfed Tribe: Experimental rockers Spoonfed Tribe will return to Amarillo for a 9:30 p.m. Saturday show at Leftwood’s, 2511 S.W. Sixth Ave. The Fort Worth-based percussion ensemble puts on a wild show, what bass guitarist/drummer Jerome 57 (yeah, that’s his name) once described to me as something akin to a religious experience. Cover is $8 in advance and $13 at the door. Visit www.spoonfedtribe.com.

Mike Ryan: Texas country star Mike Ryan will return to town for a 9 p.m. Friday show at Midnight Rodeo, 4400 S. Georgia St. We spoke recently about the breakaway success of his 2014 album “Bad Reputation”: “My first three No. 1s were off this one, back to back to back,” Ryan said. “It’s something I really never expected – something really awesome. Hopefully, we’ll have the same sort of success with this next record.” For more from the interview, click here. Cover charge is $10 in advance or $12 day of show.
