It List: Tuesday 7/18/06






Danava/ Snow Foxxes/ Eat Avery's Bones (Cavern downstairs): For those that don't know... Danava sounds like Wolfmother. But they're way better. They rock harder, they're less slick, and they're somewhat more adventurous in sound, with synths and spacey song structures adding some meat to the by now familiar neoSabbath hispter sound. I've also heard great things around the world wide internets about their live shows, so I expect this to be a good one. Snow Foxxes have a similar Sabbathesque guitar sound (with vocalist-drummer Celia Wall, pictured to the left, adding a nice touch of Jefferson Airplane vibe with her vocals), but are a bit sloppier and more aggressive than Danava, and also sound quite good. Fans of Silk Stocking and the aforementioned bands will probably dig. And you know EAB.


And remember, Upstairs at the Cavern, Wanz will be doing his Lost Generation thing. Looks like the Cavern could be the place to be tonight.

Helen Stellar/ Sarah Reddington/ The Psychedelic Journey Band/ Chirp! Chirp! (Dada): You ever heard a good band, as in played good music, that was recorded all wrong and had terrible lyrics, and thus became a band that you weren't sure you could take? Sounds like Helen Stellar could be one of those bands. Of course, I'm a shoegaze kind of person, so if thats not you're thing, don't even bother. But even if it is, Helen Stellar might be too cute and serious and clean sounding and trite to really be very entertaining. In fact, the more that I listen to their Mix 102 love song lyrics, the more I know I wouldn't like them live for the same reason that Jerry Seinfeld doesn't like watching a man sing a song. But anywho, Sarah Reddington is becoming more excellent every time I hear them, Chirp Chirp's lonely guitars and spastic noise sound quite interesting, and the Psychedelic Journey band, um, I don't get.


And finally theres the SLOMO video festival at Denton's SHQ (210 E. Hickory). The SLOMO is a series of 100 one minute slow motion videos produced by 85 different directors and video artists from around the world, all featured back to back. Should be fun. By the way, its FREE, its BYOB, and its at a great Denton space. Starts at 8.

If you are coming to SHQ, you might wanna bring a lawn chair. We still don't have a lot of seating. Some peeps are bringing blankets and pillows, and the floor will be freshly mopped, but still...

Whoever wrote this quote is who the word fuckchop was invented for.
