It List: Wednesday 9/6/06


NOTE: Crowds are apparently already starting to form in front of Rubber Gloves tonight for the show, so if you're planning on going, I would suggest getting up there ASAP.

(Smog)/Howling Hex/ JC (Rubber Gloves- FREE): Yet another great evening of music during Rubber Gloves free week. This time, its an exciting and surprising performance from Bill Callahan, the visionary singer songwriter behind the lo fi underground legend Smog. One can't help but notice the wide ranging influence that Smog has had on many of the chic indietastic songwriters that have been gaining favor with the Pitchfork crowd over the past few years. His songs are quiet, dark, introspective, unsettling and often gorgeous. The two albums I am most familiar with are Red Apple Falls and Wild Love, and I think both will one day be considered quite important if they aren't already. Acoustic guitars, banjos, lush pianos, and bits of pedal steel and even some synths all wrap themselves around Callahan's poetic tales, which he sings in a country tinged Iggy Popesque dry baritone that always seems just about perfect in delivery. Rubber Gloves should really be given some props for getting him here for free, and anyone reading this should be in Denton tonight to take advantage of this rare opportunity. Howling Hex is Neil Haggerty of Royal Trux, who I'm not actually the biggest fan of, but I know a lot of people that read this are probably into them, so there you go. You might dig it. Click here to sample some stuff.

100 Damned Guns/ Current Leaves/ Meat Radio DJs (Club Dada): Current Leaves begins their residency in Dallas tonight, and I would suggest you check them out before the rest of Dallas starts talking about them, which I promise will start happening before the end of the month. The Grits N Gravy guys from Meat Radio will be spinning old soul/mod/rock selections starting at 6pm, and Current Leaves will go on at 9, leaving the working stiffs with no excuse.

This is Radio Clash(Hailey's): The Flashlight Party DJs will be doing their weekly party at Hailey's tonight with Wanz as special guest. Flashlight Party has a pretty big crew going up in Denton right now, so their shows in little d are always a lot of fun. Wanz will surely spice things up a bit too, so Hailey's should be a great place to stop by before and/or after Rubber Gloves tonight.

would someone mind describing his music? I've never heard it, and I couldn't find it on the world wide web.

JC is actually in a band called Burnt Sienna Trio, which is old-style bluesy folk with drums and electric bass.
JC solo is him with acoustic guitar, a bass drum or just a tamborine. It's also old-style bluesy folk. With emphasis on old. He's probably blacker than your black friend.

More than acoustic guitar, he plays the banjo. But not like a banjo. And, yeah, just with tambourine sometimes. He's just fucking legit.

I'll be dropping in to repot every few hours. The excitement is Palpable! Or should I say PALPATINEABLE! This is it folks! The END of George Lucas' vision. The final installment EVER. IT is good to be alive. Now somebody bring me a pizza! HAHAHAHAHA! MTFBWY!

I am TOTALLY freaking out right now. JAKE LLOYD just arrived. You may remember him as the boy that played ANAKIN SKYWALKER in the Phantom Menace. He sure has gotten big! I gotta tell ya, it sure is a coup for Rubber Gloves to have landed such luminaries. The Force is strong with them HAHAHA. Anyway, we're about to have the Chewbacca sound-alike contest. Grand Prize? Trip for two to the Amarillo Force Fest in 2007! It'll be rad if I win, since I bought my tickets to that a LONG TIME ago at a TICKETMASTER VERY FAR AWAY! So if I win, I can take skillet, roger, and Bailey. Guess we better getour costumes ready for that. We're doing STORMTROOPERS, but with suits on like RESERVOIR DOGS. We're all MR. White! And WHERE'S MY PIZZA? HAHAHAHA! The line is backed up all the way to TATOOINE, so get here soon!

jc owes me quite a sum of money for that rusted out bucket he called a automobile that he sold me for 500.00 bones. Fucker!

The only thing he does well in this life is play music and record music.

So... I hear Joanna Newsom was at the show..

Supposedly Bill Callahan lives in Austin and he's dating Joanna Newsom so it's not that surprising. What is surprising is that he once dated Chan Marshall and now he's dating her. He's an indie rock Wilt Chamberlain.

current leaves:

Please explain the appeal of what sounds like children singing over the most run of the mill burrito brothers type alt-country backing. Adub, I'm not jealous and I don't hate myself. I don't get it. That current leaves guy is kind of an annoyance around here ever since he got one decent review. Maybe he should be kicked off of here the way his bandmember Glenn kicked stonedranger off DRC back in the day. You criticize others for talking shit yet you're in a band with one of the world's biggest shit talkers and you do a pretty good job yourself by taking jabs at other Denton noise people etc.

I'm not necessarily a fan of the noise scene bro. I just think that's a group of guys that start crying when people aren't playing open chords and singing about "whiskey soaked" tales of unrequited love.

Aren't you supposed to be standing on the front porch of the House of Tinnitus yelling at peopl as they pass by that they DON'T UNDERSTAND!!!!

Whomever disparaged Current Leaves probably needs to give their album a few listens. It is very strong songwriting and there are a lot of nuances that may be missed on a first listen.

exactly. It took some time to grow on me, but when it did, I really started to enjoy the album. Its one of the few local releases that I would actually listen to on a regular basis even if I didn't have this blog.
