It List: Tuesday 10/10/06

Of course, you can always head upstairs at the Cavern for Wanz' Lost Generation DJ night, featuring a concentration on kraut, electro, psyche, post punk, and anything else you might want to hear that doesn't suck or appeal to people that like good ol' fashioned blah blah blah. Maybe thats the central problem with Dallas right there and we just haven't been able to figure it out. Too many people that like good ol' fashioned blah blah blah. Maybe we can all pretend that rockabilly and crybaby bands don't exist for one night.


And I might catch some shit for this, but fuck it. Thats the main reason why writing this blog is fun. Anyway, think I've become something of a fan of Athens' The Whigs, who are playing tonight in the Tea Room. What do they do thats so special? Well, nothing really, except write very good pop rock songs that are recorded just the right way and don't sound like wimpy bullshit. They sould like a lot of 80's and early 90's "college" rock favorites, and seem to have nothing to do with neu-wave, post-post punk or any other buzz terms you've heard in the past few years. I think fans of Guided By Voices, The Replacements, Superchunk and even Dinosaur Jr. might dig these guys. See for yourselves. They're good old fashioned blah blah blah thats actually good, if not old fashioned.
