It List: Thursday 4/13/06

1. El Aviador Dro/Hi-Fi Chorus/ S-1 Committee (Rubber Gloves-Denton): So I'm not usually in the business of recommending bands that I haven't listened to more than once, but I'm gonna forget about that rule for today because the last 15 minutes that I just spent listening to Aviador Dro kicked my ass. Think Devo and Kraftwerk in Spanish... and really fucking good. Go to this show unless you're an idiot. And you can go to their website and download some tracks if you don't believe me.

2. Femme Fatality/Peachcake/Undoing of David Wright/Girls Rise with Heat (Darkside Lounge): Yes, as a matter of fact I am going to keep posting about every David Wright show that takes place until I somehow am assured that every last one of you have seen what is probably the best live band in DFWd right now. And they're in Dallas tonight, so no excuses about having to drive far and cry cry cry. Femme Fatality are a decent synth dance combo thing that will probably be fun live. Peachcake is sounds pretty cool too.

3. Real Live Tigers (Metrognome Collective- Fort Worth): Haunting folk, very interesting. And its at Metrognome, which is a good place to hang out anyway.


And yes there is other stuff going on tonight, like Bosque Brown for free at the DMA at 7:30, but the three shows above are where you really should be tonight if you can. Oh, and there is no reason not to stop over at the Slip Inn for some good 80's and 90's hip hop after.

The Dallas Museum of Art deal is from 7-9, its FREE and you can walk around and look at art too. They are playing the new elefant record too and there's a cash bar and there's nothing like getting wasted at the museum.

I saw Real Live Tigers at J&J's a month or two ago. The guy has a really interesting songwriting approach. I dig it. It's a goddamn shame that the collective couldn't find anyone else to play with him...

edja, I know the show that you speak of, but nah, real live tigers didn't play at that one, I actually haven't heard of the guy, but that J&J's show definitely ruled a whole bunch.

El Aviador was like the Polysics in Spanish. Heavier on the electro..and I do me heavy. Dance, dance, dance the like a party should. Red vinyl and radioactive themes. Godzilla cover--wee!!! There was a special libation that might have done the trick. You had to be there, but YOU were not. Props to Hi-Fi and S-1 Committee. Thanks for the stuff Mike. I like, I like.

fatals/rat traps/strange boys was pretty rad.


the fatals were pretty insane, 4 french guys playing punk/garage/hardcore(almost)

...the strangeboys now have their friend greg as either a member or constant featured guest... he plays organ on a few songs and then plays maracas and tamborine..... the new stuff sounded pretty cool w/ the organ, but i'm not sure that they need another guy on stage.

the undoing/femme fatality show ruled. a band was added on at last minute called teenage talking cars, and they kicked major ass as well. peachcake can suck da big one though.

Aviodor Dro kicked my ass! That guy is an amazing performer. It's a shame the show didn't get the promotion it deserved. I guess sometimes the best shows involve 20 - 30 people getting their faces rocked off. GODZILLA!!!!!!
