The Weekender 8/18/06 -8/19/06


To begin with, you probably already know that motherfucking Devo will be playing tonight with the Psychedelic Furs and the criminally underrated (just kidding) When In Rome at some band shell thing at Fair Park. I didn't bother looking up much more than that since I figured that if you weren't already going to the show, you probably weren't willing to shell out 45 bucks to see Devo outside when it will still be like 87 degrees. I have also heard some rumors about people claiming that members of Devo will be showing up at the Fallout Lounge tonight after the concert... and without trying to necessarily dis the Fallout Lounge, I just have to ask... do you really think Devo is going to hang out there? Maybe I'm totally off base here and Devo will show up at Fallout and perform their entire first album with special guests Pere Ubu for free, but I am going to go ahead and say that this scenario seems about as likely as the Rangers making the playoffs.... not winning the world series mind you, just making the playoffs. Either way, I'm not going to be able to go because I'll be hanging out with Brian Eno at Ships tonight anyway...

Of course, the great show at House of Tinnitus will be going on as well, featuring Cry Blood Apache, Night Game Cult, Tinnitus and an improv set featuring Sparrow/Hawk- Andrew Michael for free. And I totally understand why the anons hate this shit. I mean, what could be worse than a group of students getting together and playing a free show at one of their houses just for fun? Oh I know, a group of students interested in art getting together and playing a free show at one of their houses and also inviting a very good regional touring act to play with them and possibly providing beer to all the people that are going to get in for free. What a bunch of assholes! And despite how shitty these guys are for doing this, I bet the show will be really good. Cry Blood Apache is one of the best live acts in the state of Texas right now, and Night Game Cult is one of the truly strange musical projects in Denton. Mix in some improv and atmospheric experimental pieces from some people that actually do know what they are talking about, and I think you've got a really good night. Click on the house link above for address and directions.

Of course, if gas prices are keeping your ass in Dallas tonight, you don't have to worry either: Dj Nature and Select will be putting their Party on for free tonight at Zubar. This could be your rare chance to see a smart, discerning dance crowd in Dallas actually having fun. Nature and Select are playing great stuff that no one else in the metroplex touches, and their sets are so fucking easy to like that even your dumb friend that you aren't sure you want to hang out with could go and have a good time. Basically, we're expecting a good eclectic crowd, like most of their events attract, and a DJ set that will more than convince you that these guys are worthy of the praise they get around town. And It beats the hell out of pretending to have fun at like a Titanmoon show or something, doesn't it?

Chris of Gorilla vs Bear will also be spinning records down the street at the Cavern (Upstairs.)

Switching back to Denton, the criminally underrated Evangelicals (not joking) will be playing at Hailey's tonight with Get Him Eat Him and John Ralston. And even if the other two performers aren't your thing (I'm pretty they aren't mine), I can't think of one reason why you shouldn't check out the Evangelicals' debut full length SoGone ,which came out this year... and then see them live tonight. To me, this record is a pretty perfect piece of strange summer pyschedelic pop, and manages to stay totally catchy while staying quite adventerous and never getting boring. Basically, its one of 2006's strongest releases.

Okkervil River, another one of Austin's best, will be at Sons of Herman Hall tonight as well... I bet there will be some ironic cowboys there (those guys really suck), and I know there will be some real old school cowboys downstairs at the bar who will be thinking about how easily they could have kicked some ironic cowboy ass 15 years ago before their hip went bad... so basically, rad show.

Finally, Houston's Inoculist will be at Metrognome tonight as well. By the way, they are a very good band: minimal, sleepy, reverb packed shoegaze atmospherics with some great melodies lurking around. Very good stuff at an always good venue.

So basically, there is a shitload going on tonight all over the place.


To start with, Voot Cha Index and Red Monroe will be playing at Good Records for free at 2pm for Red Monroe's CD release party, and then

Kneepad/Daniel Folmer/Time Line Post/ Dirty Water Disease will be playing over at Rubber Gloves in Denton. Kneepad will rock your ass off, Dirty Water Disease will scare your grandmother with their Sunn0))) meets Black Dice and Wolf Eyes metal noise, and Daniel Folmer will, um, do something weird to you? I don't know. I'm running out of steam and my email account isn't working right now, so if you've sent me info about a Saturday show I haven't posted, sorry about that.

Check back with us tomorrow for some adds to the list, because we might hear about parties, house shows, or regular shows that we've forgotten.

Pegasus Now in-store at Good at 6pm tonight. Free. They also brought kegs, which means even if you don't like their free music, you will at least like their free beer.

thankfully for the blogers out there, anybody can play noise! But with the Denton Noise Seen, it's about being known as an artist, versus being one! pick your nose with chocoalte milk! See! I'm an artist! You just don't GET IT!!!!

Sam. Sam. You post your little two cents in THE OBSERVER. That paper that blows in the wind all over town. The paper that bums pick up to wipe their sweaty brows with. Is it necessary to post it here when you've already PRINTED the damn ass kissing glory of a fantastic disaster you call writing?

Hey Sam, maybe if you started cutting your articles into 4 pieces, then rearranged them, and then read the resulting mishmash in esperanto, but only after taking one shoe off, and do it all in a shed where two tiny UNT rtvf halfgay students are sucking each other off... MAYBE then people on this blog will "get" what you do.

wow, anonymous 3:02, harsh.

i am going to go home, and have a nice relaxing non musical night...
i can't decide where to go, or who to see, too many choices.

devo may go to the fallout,
or they are might hang out with me, they haven't decided yet...j/k.

We played with the Evangelicals a while back and they were great, one of the better live shows I've seen in the last year or so. Not at all what I was expecting. So, if'n you're not going to a certain house party, then... by all means, check them out.

I hear Dirty Water Disease if interesting live and a bit scary!

true, devo might not come to fallout tonight. then again, the emails we've recieved from their tour manager and gerald casale himself might suggest otherwise. guess you'll have to come find out for yourself. too bad most of the readers of this blog are already on their way up to denton.

as for the rangers, yeah, they're done. too busy plunking the anaheim bat boys to focus on oakland.

"I'll be hanging out with Brian Eno at Ships tonight anyway..." HAHAHAHAHAHHA...I pissed my pants when I read that. Seems like we have a budding Lester Bangs on our hands here! (if you don't know who he is, google it for God sakes.) Went to The Party at's was crazy as usual. Too much good stuff happening in Dallas. I wish I could clone myself....oh, read The Fine Line. We love Dallas music too!

Devo rocked it out at Fair Park. We got video clips to start then the show. There was no let up and the show had super high energy. Only That's Good post '81. Great time in the horrible heat. So... what was the story El Macho? Too old to make it that late, but I am really dying to hear if Devo showed up and played the FallOut.

devo didn't make it to the fallout lounge. they had to fly out to houston at 7:30 the next morning. that, and they are too old to go out anymore. we were bummed, but cj macphie and i still threw a hell of a party. thanks to the DJs, and everyone that attended. maybe we'll get even more repeat business next week.

the show squid thing after j&js ruled. played a quiet trio of free jazz guitar/guitar/sax. a question mark mr. rogers safari into the dangers of marijuana for a young dan. our audience of one. enjoyed much so. didn't really wanna play j&js at all. but free pizza and beer are worth saying an amp feeding back is a show. it had it's moments but that trio flog was where it was at. next time safari. i'm really into subtle volume lately. levels at high drown pretty with violence. positive for the rocking block creative anxiety for an audience to flutter to drink more and 'enjoy' furthur. but then again all men play on 10. i guess.
