It List: Friday 9/1/06

Our time is very limited today, so we'll be ditching the Weekender for our old format this week. Sorry about that, but its the best we can do. Check back on Saturday for Saturday events. For tonight, there isn't a whole lot going on, so no big:


1. If you're in Denton, you might want to go Strawberry Fields (Oak and Bonnie Brae) at 9pm to check out their free screening of Kill Your Idols Click, a documentary about the New York No Wave scene of the late 70's/early 80's. I haven't seen the film, but I've heard that it is quite good, covering a lot about the no wave scene and drawing paralells between that time and the current New York art rock scene (and questioning whether what is happening in New York right now really has anything to do with "art"). This is a great excuse to check out what they have in the store too... word is that they'll be selling CDs from every artist that appears in the film.

2. The Central Booking Agency (Dj Nature and Select) will be having a party tonight at the Cavern, featuring performances from Prince William and his duo Krispee Ones, who appear to be on their way to becoming one of the better underground DJ crews in DFWd, along with Select, Sober and hip hop acts Black Page, Seeds of Concrete and Big Pharoah. We've heard a lot of good things about Black Page and Pharoah, and everything that Central Booking has been touching lately has been a complete blast... these guys are throwing the best parties in Dallas right now, so you should probably check them out while they are on their way to running the Dallas dance/hip hop scene. Prince William has also received some props on Gorilla vs Bear, who will be playing records upstairs at the Cavern tonight as well. Looks like there is only one place to be in big D on a Friday night. The good news is that it will probably kick ass.

Micah P. Hinson performs at Bend Studio at 8 p.m. If you've never heard him, this could be a rare treat, cuz the Abilene dude is a little loopy and comes and goes how he pleases (read: once in a blue moon OR 3 shows in one week...you really never know). Sample him at his space, really. His voice is killer.

Strawberry Fields is great - glad there's something like that in denton now & hope it stays afloat. That doc was pretty good, too. the main lesson i took from it is that ARE Weapons are tards.

Anyone else out there going to see Scratch Acid tonight(saturday). I feel like a 10 year old on X-mas morning. I think I may be even more excited than when I saw the Stooges a few years ago. Hope to see some Dallas folks represent down there.
