It List: Saturday 6/24/06

1. Sonic Youth/ Awesome Color (Gypsy Tea Room Ballroom $30): I figure you have an opinion on Sonic Youth one way or another and you're stickin to it, so I won't even bother. Awesome Color is from Bushwick, and their hipster points are on full display on their Myspace page. They sound like Sabbath and MC5 with Thurston Moore and the guy from Dead Meadow for singers. Its pretty decent I supposed.

2. Last Generation Concert (Darkside): See below for more info on this show

3. I Love You/ Peel/ Chaos v. Caverninha/ You Are the Universe (Metrognome $5): Another great show @ Metrognome tonight. I Love You and Peel played last night (see descripton below or click the link), and Chaos is a noise side project from two members of Austin's excellent Hotel Hotel. And you know the deal on Universe already.

And my dumbass almost forgot:

Tim Sweeney of DFA fame will be Djing at Minc tonight (813 Exposition in Expo Park, $5 b/f 11, $10 after). Go here to check out some of his podcasts, or go to the Myspace page. If you're into anything like DFA, Optimo, How To Kill the Dj, Tigerbeat, or space disco, then you REALLY should check this guy out. His podcasts are fantastic and there won't be anywhere in the state of Texas where you'll hear a better DJ set tonight, I bet. This will be going on till late, so you can make this an after show stop if you want.

EVERYTHING NOW has been added to the SHQ bill tonight. Show still starts at 8:00, it's still $3, and it's still at 214 E. Hickory.

ALSO on the bill... Hand of Onan, a trio of old school Denton fuckers (Brutal Juice, Cornhole) that play dirty lyriced Texas rock. Plus, Mescalero for you fans of the Stoner Rock thing.

Yamahama! Thanks for sending them our way Metrognome!

Goes to show how many times you been to the Smoke anon. We don't have Go-go dancers and the ones that do go-go from time to time are anything but fat.

Fort Worth will be a great lineup at Metrognome. I'd love to see I Love You (pun intended) & Peel again after last nights show at Cavern. Also, Blackheart Society is playing a free gig at Black Dog Tavern over there. They've added Andrew Graham for a fuller sound, should be cool.

I'll be at Lee Harveys for the free Sons of Sound/Strange Boys show. We have an alternate plan, if it gets rained out, but looks like the sky is clearing up. The show starts early, around 8:30pm & ends by 12mid, so I'll head over to Darkside after to catch part of that amazing lineup. See y'all out & about!

P.S. If anyone has a place that Brimstone Howl & Kazalok can play tomorrow night (Sun, 6/25), get ahold of Liz Hitt ASAP. Their Dallas show got cancelled at the last minute. They're one of my fave garage acts out today...and are willing to play for little or nothing, just want to play.

MAN. Everything Now was GREAT! Denton treated them real nice. Passed the gas bucket and fed them HOME MADE venison sausage, courtesy of Wally/Hand of Onan. Thanks for the hook-up Metrognome, our brothas and sista to the south!

I didn't care for Awesome Color.
And even though I wished SY would have played more older stuff, I still thought it was great.

I had no idea Mark Ibold (Pavement) was playing with them on this tour.That was pretty cool

I heard that the Sonic Youth show was over at 11:30. What's up with that? I can't say that would have been worth $30.
