Weekender 9/15/05-/9/16/06

Lots going on tonight, so here we go:


1. Tv on the Radio/White Bitch (Gypsy Tea Room Ball Room): Tv on the Radio's new record is good. Very good. Don't listen to what other people tell you. Don't act like you think it sucks just because you want to be the anti Pitchfork guy. I have yet to see them live, but judging by the fact that they killed on Letterman this week, I'm guessing that they have the potential to be very good live. I might just go find out. Along with the Liars record, Tv on the Radio's new one is probably the strangest album to get significant mainstream attention in quite a while, and theres a reason: its experimental, accessible, and generally amazing throughout.

2. The Party with Dj Nature and Select (Zubar- FREE): Dude bro, why do you always talk about Nature? Well bro, the reason I do is that we've been getting a lot of new readers lately (august was our biggest month of the year) and I want all the new people to see what the underground buzz is about, because it is surely warranted. I want them to see why you can go to a Central Booking event and not be able to tell if you are in Dallas, New York, LA, Miami or anywhere else in the world because the crowd is so random and the party is so big and the music is so solid that you couldn't possibly be on Greenville, could you? These guys are ahead of the curve not only in Dallas but pretty much everywhere else. What does that mean? Go find out. I've already had people send me thank you emails for telling them about Nature, and I'm expecting more of them.

3. Enon/ Octopus Project/ Single Frame (Hailey's Denton) This is really going to be a great fucking show. All three bands kill it live (seriously), and Enon is a band that I can't seem to get enough of. They've been getting regular play in my car and at my house for years, and they just seem to get better with time.

4. Phoenix/ La Rocca (Gypsy Tea Room Tea Room): Another great party could very well get going at Gypsy tonight. Phoenix might at times sound like the French Backstreet Boys, but somehow that ends up being a good thing once you've listened to one of their records a couple of times. I can't explain it other than to say that they must just be great songwriters, and sometimes that fact alone simply cuts through the bullshit and forces you to enjoy yourself. Phoenix does that to me all the time.

5. The Long Winters/ Chris Garver/ RTB2 (Rubber Gloves):

6. Warren Jackson Hearne and the Gloomadeers (Darkside Lounge)


1. iDi* Amin/ You Are the Universe (Secret Headquarters Denton): This is going to be three bucks, and will start at 7 or 8pm, I'm not sure which. But you can go to the myspace page to check for sure, or you can just show up early and drink their beer. If you're not sure about the "noise" bands, go see this. Its cheap, its early enough to see another show after, and I think you will enjoy it as long as you go in with an open mind. These bands are both a real pleasure to see live.

2. The Appleseed Cast/ Red Monroe/ The Pebble that Saved the World (Rubber Gloves)

3. Cat Power (Gypsy Tea Room Ballroom): Not the biggest fan in the world, but I respect what Chan Marshall does, and she ain't bad to look at either... heyyo! But seriously folks, ha ha, Cat Power isn't something I listen to often, but on those rare occasions when I'm in the mood for her music, I always really enjoy it. Take that how you will.

4. Flaming Lips/ Matisyahu/ Street Drum Corps (Nokia Theater $42): 42 bucks to see the Flaming Lips in a place that reminds me of a model home in Plano? Um, I like Flaming Lips and everything, and Soft Bulletin is one of the ten best records of the past ten years and stuff, but no thanks. I'll watch the video. I've seen them live twice and thats enough. And come on, their new album is complete shit. And as much as I want to hate Matisyahu and dismiss the whole thing as annoying gimmick, I just can't do it. I actually like some of the stuff I've heard from him. Shhh... don't tell anyone.

What a weekend for music. Go enjoy it.

I always want to hate what pitchfork loves, but sometimes they seem to get it right.

The new TV On The Radio album is probably my favorite album of this year. I saw them perfrom in the Spring with (don't laugh or judge, but I know you will with full prejudice) Bauhuas and NIN, and I'd have to say TV On The Radio almost upstaged them (actually, they did upstage Bauhaus, YIKES). They put a LOT of energy in their shows and the songs sound even better live, so I made myself promise I'd see them in a smaller setting when they came back.

If wasn't going to the TV On The Radio show, I'd definitely be at the Enon/Octopus Project show. That's some good times right there.

here's a few examples


*Bush, Deconstructed
*Oasis, Be Here Now
*Limp Bizkit, Chocolate starfish
and the hotdog flavored water

that being said, i saw the Lips last night in OKC with DEERHOOF at a zoo and it was fucking excellent. unfortunately all you guys must see matisyahu.

Massive Attack Live for the first time ever in Texas this weekend. Tonight in Dallas. They reggae legend Horace Andy and Cocteau Twin Liz Frasier as their singers on this tour and apparently a 9 piece band including 2 drummers. If you miss this show you are either broke($50 tickets) or just planet crazy. Just try to Imagine "Angel" Live with a full band. Yep. That's the spot.

I may be calling it quits on Lost Generation soon due too a very possible new job oppurtunity. So come out while you can. I will know for sure next week. Even after I know I will still keep going for a few more weeks and have a final big blowout.

Anonymous Anonymous said...

Idi Amin was greatness. Pure art and exploration. Nevada started the set with a microphone under a sketch pad for god's sake. They took their time getting to the highs and did not wallow in the cheap theatrics of sheer volume. urtu? There is nothing experimental about a bunch of young dudes strumming guitars in the key of E for 20 minutes with their backs to the crowd. volume is not the same as intensity. volume is not the same as deliverance. anybody can turn it up to 10. And anybody can do what I saw urtu do that night. Perhaps an off night, but still... They came across as contrived and inexperienced and misguided. And it's time to let the bass player go. Noise Rock 101.I have heard that the main dude is better when he does it by himself with more electronics. I'd like to see that. None of this is supposed to be offensive. When a guy puts himself out there as much as jamo does, he needs to be prepared for this kind of thing.

Idi Amin lives up to the hype. I wouldn't even call them NOISE really. Just artful improv, unafraid.


6:11 PM  
Blogger stonedranger said...

well, I'd really like to see Jamo's response to those comments, because I think he will respond in a mature and thoughtful way to a valid critique.

I like where you are going with this in a sense because this is one of those things that I struggle with when I listen to "noise:" Does it take talent to make? And do I really care whether it does or not? Those are two questions I ask myself all the time. When its good, the answer is yes and yes. When it isn't, the answer is no and no. And while I don't care whether or not it takes talent, that doesn't mean I have to like it.

I'm not saying I agree with you on URTU, because I have seen them do some pretty cool things live. I just like the subject.

7:35 PM  
Blogger jamo said...


I couldn't agree with you more actually, there were several reasons why our set on saturday didn't work, I don't really feal like making a laundry list out of them at the moment, but they were significant. In fact, as a band, urtu is officially on an indefinite hiatus. We are all far more interested in working on individual projects, most of them far less "volume" oriented, and believe it or not, that isn't what urtu is all about, never has been... but I could go on and on about circumstances, thanks for some actual criticism for once.

Anonymous Anonymous said...

Well, this is the guy that started the talk up there, and after rereading it, I even felt I was too harsh. I really should have stressed that I like the stuff on myspace, and urtu comes highly recommended (spellcheck!). At least the guys are putting themselves out there and I'll definately check out future work. I knew Jamo would read what I wrote with a fair eye, and with no freakout. The fact that he admits to needing to re-evaluate the way the band works right now says a lot, and I apologize for the "contrived" snotty comment above. I don't really feel that way. And yeah, Stonedranger, I'm the same way with the live noise that I listen to. I love the impact, I love the freedom, I love the desire to make music on your own terms, and it is very easy when listening to nontraditional stuff to overthink it. I'll just shut up and listen from here on out.
No, by the way, I'm not in Idi Amin, and I don't really know any of those guys that played in Denton on Saturday at all.
I have no qualms with the anonymous thing if done correctly. This wasn't a personal attack on anybody, and the stuff that I, in hind sight, thought was too bitchy, I took back, granted maybe it was too late. We have all been on the getting end of anonymous comments, positive and negative, some of them from king anonymous himself, stonedranger. You all have my respect.

Jamo himself said he agreed with my honest opinion of the show. I didn't say anything cruel. The whole "Say it to my face" thing is of no real value. I did not walk around slapping backs on Saturday, and I don't know those people. I listened a bit and I left. So there is zero weight to your passionate claims of backstabbing and being a liar. I was gone before the amps were turned off. Relax. If this opinion and the fact that you feel betrayed by honesty is too much for you, I'd hate to see the implosion that would happen if urtu ever recieved any "real" negative press. Damn, pick your battles.

"let your bass player go. noise rock 101. contrived. misguided."

I stand by all of that, except the retracted "contrived", as valid and true about the set that I saw. I heard jamo was capable of more, and I believe it.

The bass player seemed fairly clueless in the band and seemed to add very little to the music. I didn't call him a jerk or say anything about his mama.

Noise Rock 101. Dudes. Guitars. Fast Strums. Loud for louds sake. Hit the pedals. Again, I know that jamo agrees that it was lackluster, and I know that those guys are capable of more. They saw their rut, and now they are focusing their talents in other areas, which is to be applauded. They will not waste time beating a dead horse...unlike you ;)

misguided - adj 1: poorly conceived or thought out;

I stand by that description of the performance that I saw. I will seek out new work in the immediate future.

So, you know, shut up.

See, not true. Sometimes you can make a lot of people angry and just be that dick that pissed everyone off. They don't make me angry. They're laughable.

Also, the free publicity thing, see, that's what people say to make themselves feel better.

HITLER got lots of free publicity. HITLER angered people.

Working your ass off? Riiiiiiiight.
The only ass your working is that of your boyfriend, ADOLF HITLER.

will you guys just fucking quit? Please? Say you don't like the music and why if you want, or type something that is the least bit funny or intelligent, but if you aren't going to add anything except for immature insults that aren't funny or smart, then fucking quit posting on here. I'm sorry that you can't stand the bands we talk about or the people in them, but you are really making this place boring and annoying for everyone else. If I keep seeing this kind of bullshit, I'm just going to erase your comments and pretend like they were never even posted, making your very minimal effort all the more pointless. I don't care if you have negative things to say about me, the blog, or any of the bands we talk about, but at least make it interesting. Don't make me go down the road of limiting comments on this blog. You're really starting to make me think that it might be a good idea.
