The It List: Saturday 2/4/6

Lots of stuff to do tonight. Here we go:

1. Strange Boys (Avenue Arts- 825 Exposition): If you haven't had a chance to see the Strange Boys live yet, this might be a good opportunity to do so, being a small non traditional venue. They go on at 11:30 in the middle of some kind of party hosted by the Melissas (who might they be?) and also featuring a set from DJ G of Wednesday night at the Cavern and Thursday at Hailey's fame. For more info call 214-827-0351. Its usually 5 dollars to get in and always BYOB.

2. Shiny Around the Edges/Evangelicals/Hotel Hotel (Rubber Gloves- Denton): We can't believe we missed SATE last night. Its mostly because we didn't hear them until today. Great experimental folk that reminds us of the Castanets covering Leonard Cohen and Massive Attack songs. Also Hotel Hotel are an interesting experimental instrumental band from Austin, and the Evangelicals do some solid spacey-twee pop. All are more than worth checking out. Click on their names for a link to their respective Myspace pages.

3. The Hourly Radio (Cavern Adventure Club Showcase): Yes the Edge sucks, and yes even the Adventure Club sucks a lot of the time. Do we REALLY have to hear the new fucking Deathcab for Stupid cover of blah blah blah? The answer is no, but you might want to say yes to Hourly Radio. They do some pretty solid Echo influenced Brit pop.

4. Dj Nitwit Psychic Drive In (Fallout): Before or after the Strange Boys show, you should check out some good music and interesting videos next door at Fallout. Always a good place to relax on a Saturday evening.

Uh, what about the fucking return of Chao at Hailey's tonight? Daniel Huffman (Ghostcar) is supposed to play with Regina, too, so it'll be as close to Day of the Double Agent as we'll be seeing for a long while......

Not only did you miss that awesome show in Denton, but if you'd only shown up 20 minutes earlier at Avenue Arts, you would've seen me shakin' my shit. You missed some seriously awesome, awkward dancing, my friend.
