The It List: Friday 2/3/06

Busy night tonight, so here we go.

1. Bosque Brown (Metrognome Collective's Untitled 1518- Fort Worth): We wrote about this yesterday(scroll down, lazy ass), and this is probably where we'll be tonight. Looks like a really cool space run by some cool kids, not to mention the fact that they were able to land one of the DFWD "buzz" bands for their first show. Its located at 1518 Lancaster in Fort Worth, and you can get directions and more information here. Should be interesting to see how they do it over in Ft. Worth tonight. We'll try to find out the times for you and add them on to the list later today. (the above photo is of their space, which is now much more finished according to our friend over there.)

(HERE IS AN UPDATE, with DIRECTIONS and STUFF: "A Childlike Fear will go on around 10:00, Shiny around 11:15, and BB at 12:30 or so. it is all ages, and BYOB. Cover is $5 and will be split between the NFP and the bands." AND:

Dallas: are you coming out I-30 from dallas? if so, exit riverside, turn left, go under the fwy and take a right at the light, which should be Lancaster. pass under hwy 287, and the collective building will be about two blocks down on the left.

Denton: If you are coming down 35 from denton exit 30 east towards dallas and take the first exit for 180/Lancaster West, before you actually get on 30. that will split into three little ramps, take the first one around, and you will come out on lancaster heading toward downtown. it is a half block down on the left

The building is in between cypress and pine, with a large, tall hexagon shaped blank sign; and across the street from Andy's orange motorcycle shop. there is a large penner and cheney paint company sign painted on the building next door. turn in the gate on the right of the building if there is any parking left in the back and come in through the back entrance. we are woking on the front part of the building, eventually everyone will park across the street and come in through the front door into the gallery. ")

1. (Tie) Undoing of David Wright, Zom Zoms, Eat Avery's Bones (Rubber Gloves Denton): This is our first official It List tie because although we really want to go check out the space in Fort Worth, we also wish we could be in Denton to see two local bands we like, along with another interesting group from Austin. The crowd will probably be great, and I'm sure there will be some good after parties and whatever going on in little d after this show, so theres no reason not to go to this. Not to mention the show will be great. Stop by early to check out Eat Avery's Bones.

3. Octopus Project (Hailey's- Denton): A great Austin instrumental band. Check out their Myspace page and see for yourself. Sort of reminds us of DJ Shadow for some reason.

4. Up! at the Cavern: A pretty good eclectic selection of music for those in Dallas that don't feel like driving to a show. Usually a pretty good time.

And Silk Stocking is the opening act at the Liquid Lounge tonight -- the Freek Out and Jack With One Eye are also playing, but SS is the reason to attend that one, undoubtedly, so Dallasites who hate driving should give that show a shot. ~10 p.m.

2:44 PM
