It List: Wednesday 10/4/06

Hey, sorry bout it, but I don't have time to do a lot of writing for the list today. I've got, you know, a life to live, plus I'm working on a couple features that will be ready by tomorrow or Friday. So do these things tonight:

Of course, you can hit up The Party with Dj Nature at Rubber Gloves, or

Matt & Kim/King Tuff/ El Paso Hot Button/ Everything Looks Better Upside Down (1919 Hemphill Ft. Worth) King Tuff sounds pretty damn good by the way and Matt and Kim too.... actually, I think I really want to go to this show. Check out the Myspace pages.


you can see Tame... Tame and Quiet with Bearegard and Sweetgrass at the Black Dog Tavern in Ft. Worth, as part of Scissor Socket Shocker's concert series.

Sweetgrass is a fucking joke for REAL. You want johnny-come-lately pearl snap Almost Famous wannabe bullshit? There ya go. As country and soulful as an 80's Night scenster can get on daddy's credit card.

"If you ever find yourself rollin' through the country on a mid-summer night, roll them windows down and you'll smell that sweetgrass. Pop on an old folk tune, and take it all in. Those are the moments that really settle me. Those are the moments that make you forget everything. I'm whole heartedly in love with the countrysides and the freedom they posess. Half of my family is from North Carolina so I grew up around the mountains and the hillsides up there. So I've always had that southern flair driven into me. As a child I grew up around country music, and as I got older started listening to different punk groups and obscure rock stuff. Then I found the likes of Gram Parsons, and fell in love with the early stuff. I guess I've come full circle to where I started and kinda blend everything I've heard and know, and thats what comes out. I consider myself truly blessed to have friends that seek that same feeling, and feel the need to hold onto that country music pride. So together we're making music, and we'll take it to whoever will recieve it. it's what fulfills us, and that, I think, is what fuels real feeling in any music. "

New Rule: serious yet irrelevant personal attacks in the comments sections will be erased. I'm not talking about when you say things like "the dude from blackheart society is lame," but when you accuse someone of treating women like shit or something like that, I'm going to erase it. Talk whatever shit you want about the music or whatever, but lets not get too personal here.

Thanks Stonedranger for that analogy!

I can always count on you to take cheap shots.

I have to agree the Stonedranger analogy was pretty lame.Calling someone lame is taking a personal shot. If this is supposed to be about not liking bands thats one thing but if you're against your comment posters taking personal shots then why do you as the blog moderator do it yourself? You're encouraging this blog to become exactly what it has been lowered to- a pig sty.

hey, you know what:

fucking relax. I just used it as an example, which is why I put it in quotes. Why did I pick Blackheart Society? Because I felt like it, thats why. Just an example.

And I also said SERIOUS personal attacks. I would hardly say that calling someone "lame" qualifies. If that really bothers you, then you might want to try out for a spot in Taking Back Sunday.

And when the fuck have I ever taken a "cheap shot" at your band? I have been more than polite with Blackheart Society, and I was anything but quickly dismissive of your music. I reviewed your CD carefully, and I saw your band play a few different times.. what the hell do you want from me?

It is totally going on! The press releases were initially sent out on August 28, the last Monday in August, and press updates have been sent to numerous press entities multiple times since then, with the latest release sent earlier this week.

There's only so much we can do as far as getting the word out, and we've done it all except an upcoming MySpace blitz.

I would so appreciate any one of your help in spreading the word.

___________ PRESS RELEASE__________


Martin Iles (940) 395-8812

Chris Weber (206) 214-7632

Good/Bad Archives presents
Rock Lottery 8
Saturday, October 7th 2006 (10:00PM)

Morning selection hosted by John Freeman
Evening performances hosted by Colin Carter with special guests
Early admission is $15.00. General admission is $10.00.
Dan's Silver Leaf 103 Industrial Street Denton, TX. (940) 320-2000
Early admission is at 9:30AM. Doors open for evening event at 9:00PM.
Event starts promptly at 10:00PM.

Good/Bad’s infamous Rock Lottery series is back. Organized by former
Good/Bad music coordinator Chris Weber, former Good/Bad director Martin
Iles, Chris Flemmons (The Baptist Generals), and Samantha Moss
(jetscreamer). Featuring additional curatorial assistance from Lisa
Bush (DJ Wild in the Streets), Justin Collins (Burnt Sienna), and Kris
Yeomans (the pAperchAse and Tactics Productions). Rock Lottery 8 will
feature twenty-five North Texas musicians representing all the diverse
sounds of the North Texas music scene.

The Rock Lottery premise is simple, but effective. Twenty-five hand
picked musicians meet at 10:00AM at the evening’s performance venue.
These volunteers are organized into five groups through a lottery-based
chance selection. The five separate groups are then released to
practice at different locations. The musicians have twelve hours to
create a band name and three to five songs (with a one cover-song
limit). The groups will then perform what they have created that
evening in front of a waiting audience.

The following individuals are participating in Rock Lottery 8:

Ben Burt (Brutal Juice)

Chris Considine (Bridges and Blinking Lights)

Wes Darrin (Faux Fox)

Eric Deuce (The Gash)

Will Frenkel (No Brainers)

Ineka Guerra (Lady Malice)

Ethan Hahn (handbrake)

Roy Ivy (The Tah Dahs)

Buffi J (The Robert Gomez Band)

Kody Jackson (Spitfire Tumbleweeds)

Michael 'Kerm' Rivas (Fra Pandolf)

Gregory Lange (Tenacious Root)

Lars Larsen (Undoing of David Wright)

Dan Paul (Dan Paul)

T.J. Prendergast (Pegasus Now)

Mark Pirro (Polyphonic Spree)

Gina Probst (Bundle of Joy)

Mauve Oed (Corn Mo & Mauve Oed)

Dylan Silvers [DARYL]

Matt Thompson (Shaolin Death Squad)

Jennifer Seman (Shiny Around Edges)

Chad Stolkshlager (The Drams)

Jon Teague (The Great Tyrant)

Bryan VanDivier (South San Gabriel)

Justin Wilson (Red Animal War)

The twenty-five musicians included in this experiment are selected in an attempt to represent a wide variety of musical styles. This event intends to bring together many facets of the North Texas music community that may seem incompatible as well as musicians whose interests may conflict. As of press time, Rock Lottery 8 includes ten Denton-based musicians, ten Dallas-based musicians, and three Fort Worth-based musicians. The challenge for these musicians is to try and
go beyond their personal and musical differences and work together to
create a unified group project that still contains the personal styles
of each of the participants.

This year’s event will feature an early admission price of $15.00. This
early admission will allow patrons to access the 10:00AM band selection
and drawing hosted by John Freeman, enjoy a “Reckless Appetite”
breakfast provided by Pam Chittenden, and early entrance to the
evening’s finale.

The Rock Lottery has been a staple of the Denton, Texas music scene for almost a decade. Created by Chris Weber of the now defunct Good/Bad Art
Collective (both the Denton, TX and Brooklyn, NY locations), the event continues beyond the organization, and has been the backbone and main
fund raising component for the Good/Bad Archive. All proceeds from this year’s Rock Lottery will be direct donations to the non-profit Save Fry Street organization. This organization was created in response to the pending demolition of many
of the historical structures in the Fry Street area. It is the intent of SFS to create awareness within the Denton community of the relevancy of a preserved Fry Street, and with community support open a dialogue with the owner of the threatened site. For more information see:

Additional information, including participant contact information, press packs, and related images, is available upon request.

Maybe you need to read some of your earlier posts and remember why you started doing this blog in the first place. It's nothing but the equivalent of a lunchrom food fight involving pre-schoolers now. A competition of who can hate the most bands and post the stupidest comment under the guise of being witty. Mariahs boob ah ha ha!
