It List: Monday 5/22/06

Yes I know this is a music blog and everything, but I'd be cheating if I didn't say that my focus is not on music today. Its on what the Mavs have to do to win tonight. WSJR is not particularly optimistic about tonight, but we don't want to be all doom and gloom either. So, we'll look at tonight as a night for the Mavs to prove themselves. A night, first and foremost, for Jason Terry to come back and make everything alright with a tough performance. Any way you want to slice it, Terry did throw a punch, and he shouldn't have. Not because its "wrong," or because its mean to punch someone like Michael Finley who is already prone to crying, but because he knew that he could get suspended, and that it might have cost his team a playoff game... or worse. JT needs to put on a show tonight to avoid being the official Mavs Playoff Jackass two years in a row (remember last year's non foul?) Dirk also has to show up big tonight, and prove to the league, not to mention is teammates, that he is a certifiable superstar. If he can't make his shots, he's gotta go to the hole, and if he can't score down there, he's gotta get to the line and get rebounds. But if Bruce Bowen is the difference maker guarding Dirk tonight, it will be a sad Tuesday morning for every one. Oh yeah, Josh Howard and D Harris coming back from their game 6 disappearance would help too.

Oh, music? Not much doing tonight. Heavy instrumentalists Pelican are playing at Hailey's with noisy post rockers Mono. Neither one really excites me that much, despite the fact that I get stoned on a regular basis. I do imagine that these are two pretty good live acts, so you might not want to miss it if you're into that sort of thing. Pelican especially seems like they would be great to see live, as their brand of building instrumental rock appears to be the kind that increases in quality with every upward click of the volume. And Mono is certainly the best of the second generation post rock bands, and are noisy enough to possibly spawn some good chaotic live moments.

at the beginning of this series, I said we would take it in seven. at the end of regulation I told my dad we'd beat them in ot. I was right both times. I'm usually wrong. Thank goodness.

mavs in 6 sounds good.

although, if they play as well as they have thus far they could easily do it in four i'm gonna say mavs in 5 b/c we've been playing crazy lately and the suns have already played 14 games in the playoffs (and their playing style is such that they WILL wear down)

The MAvs were exciting last night.

Mono? Not so much.
