Weekender: 10/27-10/29

Unless you're under the age of 12, this weekend is the real Halloween for all intents and purposes. Costume parties, Halloween concerts, special events, the list goes on. There is obviously a ton of stuff going on this weekend, so we've taken it upon ourselves to sift through the Observer listings and the really crappy crap that other places are recommending so that we can give you the goods for the weekend. Its like we do every day. Here they are:


Feel like driving to Grapevine and paying $47 to see The Cult? We don't, but you can if you want to. I guess the lady that sells sanctuary also sells some really expensive concert tickets too. P.S., the Cult really does kick ass... I don't care what anyone says.

Back in Dallas, you can catch electronic music performances (including from Laptop Deathmatch star Plutonium Jukebox) and contemporary non traditional media exhibits at Treewave's And/Or Gallery as part of the Texelectronica Fest. Stuff goes down from 6-10pm tonight, and the performances start at 8pm. Even though I don't know much about the exhibits, I think its a safe bet that this will be a really good way to start the night.

Oh, you want more shit in Dallas? Try Secret Machines at, um, Lizard Lounge? Yeah, Lizard Lounge. I know Secret Machines get a lot of shit around here from bitter locals, but I think they're a pretty good band all things considered... maybe a bit too stiff for their own good at times, but they put on a great live show most of the time. Doors open at 8 and its $15. I wonder if there will be any thong contests tonight?

Still in Dallas? Try Detroit Cobras/Taylor Hollingsworth at Gypsy Tea Room tonight. DC is another band that I recommend seeing live, even if Detroit garage rock bands are SOOO over.

In Denton, you can see Voxtrot/Yellow Fever/ The Dimes at Hailey's. Last time we saw Voxtrot it kinda sucked, but that was mostly Irving's fault from what I remember. In fact, Voxtrot's performance was very solid throughout, even though I found myself not giving much of a shit. Don't know why.


One of the hands down best bands in the Metroplex, Treewave, will be performing at the UNT art space in Ft. Worth at 3400 Camp Bowie as part of the Texelectronica fest. They go on at 8, and you should take advantage of this rare opportunity to see them live.

Disturbathon 06 is going down somewhere on Corinth St. downtown... thats all we're gonna say about that one, other than the fact that Wanz will be Djing and Chief Death Rage will be peforming.... I've heard that naked is the only way to go to this thing. Lucky for you, we won't be there.

Pink Nasty and Colourmusic will be playing a free instore at Good Records at 3pm...

Hailey's will be having their FREE Halloween Party with Red Monroe at 10pm, Pilotdrift at 11, and DJ G spinning records with members of Flashlight Party from 12 till 3 am.

Our Band Could Be Your Band, which we talked about last week, will be going down at Dan's Silverleaf in Denton starting at 8pm. Should be good fun, and it will help out SHQ, one of the few DIY venues in the Metroplex.

The Mountain Goats (who we actually really don't dig that much) will be playing at Rubber Gloves with Jennifer O'Connor.

And Eat Avery's Bones will be playing the Melissas' Delux Party at Avenue Arts on Exposition near the Amsterdam and Fallout. Stuff gets started at 10.


I know its a Sunday and Sundays are a drag, but seeing Laptop Deathmatch at Doublewide is truly mandatory if you want to see what is really happening in Dallas music these days.

Right around the corner from SHQ, a few blocks from from The 8th Continent, and down the road from House of Tinnitus, is a venue called Rubber Gloves Rehearsal Studios.
Still very much DIY, they've just been there for close to 10 years.

Denton rules all over everybody.

Denton, Dallas, Duluth, Fuck it.

The show at Dan's on Saturday with all of the cover bands was totally awesome.

Sonic Youth, Fugazi, Butthole Surfers, and Dinosaur Jr. were tops.
