It List Wednesday: 7/26/06

Wanz Dover/Emil Rapstine/My Education at The Cavern

1. Wanz is listed as just himself tonight so I don't know if he'll be playing the kind of blippy electronic stuff he does with Wild Bull. Maybe he'll recite the anonymous 100 comment post from Monday in it's entirety over a laptop beat. That would be pretty interesting, actually. Also performing is a now beardless Emil Rapstine of The Angelus. He's doing a solo acoustic set featuring some brand new Angelus songs. And finally there's My Education who describe themselves as a "purely instrumental outfit" from Austin. They have some stringed instruments mixed in with the traditional rock setup and don't just buildup the entire time the way a lot of one trick pony instrumental groups do. They tour constantly so they should have their dynamic mood pieces down.

2. The Party with DJ Nature at Rubber Gloves Rehearsal Studios

I can honestly say the only DJ who's ever made me dance in my life on a regular basis is DJ Nature. Sure, it was a long time ago during his first stint as the main Wednesday night DJ at RGRS, but that's saying a lot considering my fear of dancing. He's probably one of the most intelligent musicologists from DFW and I have utmost respect for him. I don't even know what he'll be playing tonight but I'll fully endorse the diversity, breadth and depth of his selections before the needle even drops.

3. Clock Hands Strangle/Carey Wolff/Glovebox at Metrognome Collective

Tonight at the Metrognome it's Clock Hands Strangle who play mild chiming guitar rock with an emphasis on song writing. Local acts Carey Wolff and Glove Box have the same emphasis but are more roots oriented. A good show if you're into songwriting at one of the only venues North Texans can be proud of.

Great set last night at the Cavern. Wanz solo stuff was quite good. I hope it's what we can expect to hear from his recordings in Lawrence. Emil just doesn't disappoint. To borrow a phrase from Shawn (of Silk Stocking), when he described Jennifer of Shiny Around the Edges voice, "it's like taking a bath in warm water". Emil's voice is like that...soothing, consistent, yet strong. Lastly, My Education, was cool & I hope to see them up in Dallas more often.

I sure do love taking part in whatever discussion we are having by posting viable and timely information that has everything to do with the current topic! Like this!

This Saturday - 8/29
3 bones, byob, 8 to 10,
210 E. Hickory - DENTON

First, 8:00, CATASTICA will deliver the Pet Sounds. And I don't mean that in the Brian Wilson way, I mean, seriously, if your dog was in a band with the neighbors cat? It would sound like this. Which, of course, is very rad.

Then, at 9:00, WHITE DRUGS will destroy all of the good kharma that you had built up over the years with very little effort. They will bruise you with their delightful fucking devastation. I don't even know what that means really, but White Drugs, and the hoodlums therein, are SHQ faves.

First show in August?
Current Leaves and Chris Garver.

white drugs are a great band and good people as well. With that name though they should be from dallas not denton.
