It List: Thursday 11/9/06

1. A big house party show in Denton tonight at 816 Congress will feature Anavan/Faux Fox/Chief Death Rage/ DJ Steven Void. You all know the sounds of Faux Fox and CDR by now I'm sure, and Anavan is an aggressive, synth heavy post-punk/electro dance group from Los Angeles that will be playing tonight as part of a small tour. They're nothing you haven't heard before to be sure, but they sound like they might just explode in the kind of small crowded room that the house party is sure to provide. This is probably going to be a shitload of fun. Faux Fox will be previewing tracks off their new EP ( sounds pretty good to me), which will be for sale at the show. As far as I know, the show is free. Steven Void (who has been a part of High Society events) spins a lot of very poppy electro, some harder dance/pop stuff (one of his Myspace remixes features Out Hud, for example), as well as touches of space disco and old school house. Very Solid.

2. While in Denton, you might want to stop by Hailey's for 80's house/electro with DJ G.

3. In Dallas, Zoo will be going on at the Cavern, where they will be playing a Willowz DVD in its entirety starting at 9pm. Afterwards, I think they'll be doing their usual collage of random cool video shit. Thats the only way to really explain their setlists without typing a whole paragraph of examples. The Willowz, who we're big fans of, will be playing Club Dada on Saturday. Haven't seen the DVD, but I'm curious...

4. Hip Hop at the Slip Inn will be happening as usual.

5. And do Red Light Knights, who are playing at the Cavern tonight, share members with Kings of Leon? Seriously, I'm asking, not making a joke. They sound exactly the same except worse. They're not bad to be honest, but come on...

We should have some feature posts tonight, so check back wit us.

they seem to be related, actually... The singer shares the last name of the brothers in KoL.

yep. guess I should have noticed that. Really, I kind of like Kings of Leon, and Red Light Knights aren't bad either... they just aren't as good.

some amateur advice for RLK
#1 get that fucking guitar intonated
#2 get someone else to record you
#3 stop ripping off your relatives, who aren't that good
#4 ever heard of room reverb? makes your music sound real instead of in a vacuum peanut jar.

WHY WHY WHY? Do you keep mentioning Hip Hop at the Slip Inn?

That is when that place SUCKS!

The Slip Inn rules when they don't have crappy DJ's and no talent hip hop.

have you ever been to the slip inn on thursday night? Every once and a while the crowd is weak, but usually its packed and a lot of fun. You have to be in the mood for a large crowd and loud music in order to enjoy it, but if you are, there aren't a lot of places in Dallas on a Thursday night that can beat it.
