It List: Tuesday 6/20/06




After what will hopefully be a night that consists of a Mavs win and me winning free tickets to game 7 (which better happen), it might be a good idea to head over to the Cavern, either upstairs, downstairs, or both for a night cap or six.

UPSTAIRS:


The Lost Generation w/ Wanz: Always a great place to hear music that won't be played in any other bar on any other night in the metroplex, tonight's Lost Generation will feature:

" good stuff. You should come listen. No music until after the mavs game. so feel free to come early and watch the game with us. I scored a bunch of rare diplo shit and shitload of Kompakt records stuff recently. I also got a new nouvelle vogue disc with some really good cuts. We will get back to theme nights next week. I have been putting off my "all things german must be good" night. Maybe next week.If the mavs win we are gonna throw down. If they lose ..........Nick cave b-sides and rarities may be more appropriate. They better not lose. What I play tonight really depends on the crowd. If the crowd is good we will jam if it is lame like the other nights when the Mavs lost then who knows."


DOWNSTAIRS:

Sybris/ Backsliders/ Blonde Girls: Hmm... Sybris. I wasn't expecting much when I heard this band for the first time. I don't know why, but I think I was expecting O.C. style indie girlpop or something. And thats kind of what it is. But before you puke, you should go check out some songs on their Myspace page. If you do, there will be a certain point in time (probably within a couple minutes) that you realize that there is one indie girlpop band that you actually like, and you won't even be sure if thats what they are at all. Singer Angela Mullenhour seems to be quite the front woman, combining some of the best aspects of Bjork's range and Hope Sandoval haunt in front of a shimmering wall of noise that often appears to be bordering on out of control but never falls outside the lines of its pop oriented structure. In short, its good stuff. The DNA/ Black Eyes influenced Blonde Girls might be a pretty decent reason to show up early as well.

sybris sounds a bit like Beth Orton with balls, hanging out with Crowsdell while listening to the first Sundays record.

I had the good fortune to be able to go to Game 2, and if the atmosphere is anywhere near as intense I think we can be expecting something special tonight and Thursday.

And I fucking well better win some tickets too.

the guy who posted above me is a shit face. I saw him once and his face was made of pure shit... no joke. It was really strange. I was at the loophole and he came in with his shit face and was talking about how he hated sports being on a blog. Everyone was like "oh no! it's shit face! I hate that guy!"

What happened to the rule about no posts after Mavs loses? I guess that rule went out the window when you sportos lost four in a row. Signed, Theater Fag. The vocab by the sportos sure is typical of the Rethugs, loud and never ending. Go cry on some big ass mofos sweaty shoulders, thankfully it is over.

uhmmm. "bunch of guys sweating"... ever been to just about ANY concert in dallas/denton?

i notice a lot of guys, and a lot of sweating.

...but i guess it's different because someone's got a guitar... so sweating is encouraged.

i had the pleasure of gathering around the tele with some very die hard fans sunday..beer,bbq and i have to say it was so great.These country boys were about as passionate as I am about say, nick cave..i feel I've been sorta unfair to the general sports lover.
