It List: Saturday 5/13/06

Lots of rock shows in rock city tonight:

1. Blood on the Wall/Psychic Ills/ Fra Pandolf (Hailey's-Denton): I think the Pitchfork review of Blood on the Wall's album Awesomer is really a pretty good description of the band. Yes they do sound like Goo era Sonic Youth, a bratty Velvet Undergound influenced college rock band and a variety of other early 90's indie stars that are cool to talk about again. And no, thats not a bad thing. Really, their album is just a pretty fantastic rock record and I'm sure they will be worth seeing live. And you know we're down with Fra Pandolf, a band that seems to have been picking up some buzz lately, and as a result will be playing some New York shows later this summer with Notes From Underground, another WSJR favorite. Psychic Ills sounds really cool too.... one of those quiet noisy bands with a spacey reverb vibe.

2. Scott Porter's Birthday Show: Hogpig/Jetscreamer/White Drugs... and others (Rubber Gloves): Its free, and I'm guessing its gonna rock. Jetscreamer and White Drugs are bands that we haven't seen live yet, but are pretty sure based on the songs that we've heard that they basically kick ass. Like Blood on the Walls, Jetscreamer reminds me of a cool early 90's college rock band too. They're noisy as shit.

AND I ALMOST FORGOT: Teenage Symphony at Metrognome. This is a really good excuse to drive out to Ft. Worth to see a good band in a cool place. Really, fucking support this place before it goes under. Try going there once, because if you're interested in seeing good bands, art, film, and meeting smart people with cool ideas, you won't be disappointed.

Porter's BDAY party - tonite's all crazied out with lots of broken bones and weird one-time things.

here's an update:

It's Scott's Birthday Party at Rubber Gloves wiith possible music maybe from probably:

craig and jimmy's drum and bass
kelly and a-dub
kody r. jackson
white drugs

no Hogpig 'cause Cholo broke his clavicle and can't play at all.

this is going to be a great prty- not so much a 'show'. hope you all come out and join us in some celebration of Scott's day of birth.

no jetscreamer either? Too bad. I'm still guessing it will be a lot of fun though. I don't know Scott, but from what I've gathered about him, I'm guessing he and his crew can drink.

They were fuckin' cool. The sound was great. They got a bit drony and repetitive towards the end- which you could tell lost some people- but overall, it was a rad set.

I was pretty upset that they didn't have their limited 12'' for sale at the show. I saw a copy at Good Records a week or two ago and didn't buy it because I wanted to give the money strait to them. Lame.

Pure drone and repetition rules. If done right.

idi: Every time I try to talk or write about noise, I feel like an idiot because I just don't know what to say about it. I know for a fact that there are noise and drone bands/pieces/songs that I like, and some that I hate. But the process of putting one of those things together, beyond feedback and effects processors, etc., is a complete mystery to me.

If you email me an address, I can send you a CD of some of my favorite drone/noise pieces that my friend Justin did. They're remarkably beautiful.

Stoned & everybody, come find out on:

Saturday, May 20
Metrognome Collective
1518 E. Lancaster, Ft. Worth, TX 76107
9pm Chimeneas (Josh & Jon duo)
10pm iDi*amin
11pm Dirty Water Disease
midnight hotel, hotel

hotel, hotel bio
Somewhere between the creaky stairs and the empty West Texas saloon, the whispers of the departed ghost-town heroes meld with the distant sound of horsehair bow scraping nylon strings. This is where hotel, hotel was birthed. In life youre as likely to find them in Manchester and Brighton as their homes of Austin, Texas and Phoenix, Arizona. The core of chaos, misco, and caverninha produces evocative, harrowing, and elegant fare such as that on the new emotional odyssey/loose concept album allheroesareforeverbold. In person, the troupe often expands in mind, body, scope, and volume.
