It List: Tuesday 10/17/06




As usual, you can head over to the Cavern tonight for the Lost Generation upstairs. Tonight Wanz will be focusing on the rock:

" I am gonna emphasize more rock and soul tonight than I have in recent weeks. So if your in the mood for Slayer, Stooges, Bad Brains, Stax records, King Tubby and Curtis Mayfield tonight is for you. A good chunk of the night will be the WE SHOT JR Projection comp of local stuff. It's a good mix of good local stuff and there are still plenty of people out there that don't pay attention to blogs and playing their mixtape will let me cath up on my Marvel Comics Civil War reading."

Speaking Of Projection, we've received a lot of requests for copies of the CD to be placed at different spots all around the metroplex. We're going to do a pressing of a couple hundred here in the next few days, and in addition to Good Records, you'll also be able to find them at places in Denton and Ft. Worth as well. Stay tuned for details.

Also tonight,

you might want to head up to Rubber Gloves to see Kayo Dot/ The Great Tyrant/ Trifle Tower. Featuring former members of prog Metal group Maudlin of the Well, Kayo Dot makes music that is certainly progressive but hardly metal. Instead, they make extremely dreamy, almost liquidy sound collages featuring vocals that might remind one of Jeff Buckley if he was a little more metal and a little more crazy. And I like Jeff Buckley (for the most part), so I mean that as a compliment. The prog elements are all there too, but the music is laid back, quiet, and often jazz influenced. This is going to be a music dork show for sure, but most of you are dorks, so what do you care? You all know we are big fans of the Great Tyrant, who are making some of the most relevant heavy experimental music in the metroplex right now, so we don't have to tell you bout that. And we couldn't get Trifle Tower's Myspace page to work, but we did read this comment about the band:

"hailing from north texas, this in-your-face assault of fury is sure to inpregnate the brain to spawn forth minions capable of destroying even the most formidable of deadly devices, buuudddy." -pauly shore from mtv beach house, spring break 1996

That wins some points in my book.

And it looks like Carlin and the folks at Dada are taking some chances tonight with Flaming Fire/Liz MacGowan/The Pebble that Saved the World/Ouija Radio. The Flaming Fire's Myspace page contains press quotes which reference comparisons such as Psychic Tv, The Residents, and other avant heroes. Not sure if I exactly feel like they're dead on, or if I think Flaming Fire is quite on that level, but their music is interesting to say the least, and could quite possibly be a lot of fun to see live. Of course, Liz from Silk Stocking is always interesting to see, and I just realized that Pebble that Saved the World sounds like Bob Mould fronting The Replacements. The little I've heard has been pretty good too.

saw 'pebble' play at Rubber Gloves.. definitely some promise there.. still some kinks to work out - it looked like they had maybe played 2 shows before. guitarist broke strings on the first 3 songs and i think he just turned off his amp after that... had some energy though

Stonedranger, I'm curious about something and I'll preface this by saying that I'm not trying to sound snotty. You say that you're going to have copies of the compilation placed in strategic stores, but what happens to the proceeds from the sale of this compilation? Is it distributed equally to the bands that made the music?

Just heard from the drummer in Ouija Radio. The singer happens to have a case of laryngitis, so they won't be performing tonight at the Club Dada show. Show will still start around 9pm, so we'll have to bump up the acts. Hope to see some of you there!

saying the drummer is hot is a compliment, nothing more nothing less. I have seen them live, by the way, and she IS a good drummer. Wouldn't have mentioned it at all if I didn't like the band.

Also, Projection is free.
