It List: Wednesday 11/1/06

Jesus, its already November. I can't believe how fast this year has gone by. I also can't believe how fast this day has gone by, which is why the list is going to be short today. We're trying to hammer out some stuff that WILL be posted this afternoon and evening, so stay tuned for that. Anyway, tonight:

Beck's show at Gypsy Tea Room is sold out, so if you don't have a ticket, I wouldn't bother giving a shit if I was you.

The Party w/Dj Nature (Rubber Gloves)

Metro, with DJs Nicole and Laureen, will be happening upstairs at the Cavern.

Adrian Belew is a name that a lot of people around here probably know, but one that a lot of people at large probably don't. In case you aren't familiar with him, he's a fantastic guitarist who has played (and written) with Bowie, Talking Heads, King Crimson and Frank Zappa. To be honest, I don't know much about the work he is doing these days, and I simply don't have time to do any research on it right now. What I do know is that he is playing at the Granada tonight, and it might be good.

This is Radio Clash will be going on at Hailey's tonight as well.

THE VIDEO ASSOCIATION OF DALLAS CELEBRATES 35 YEARS OF SAN FRANCISCO AVANT GARDE PERFORMANCE ARTISTS, THE RESIDENTS

October 27, 2006—For nineteen years, the Dallas Video Festival has presented audiences fresh perspectives and innovative filmmaking from both local and international artists, and has been known as the prime source in North Texas for quirky, artsy video. Keeping in tradition, the Video Association of Dallas presents (eye), Resident, a retrospective of 35 years of works from San Francisco-based avant garde performance and multimedia art group, The Residents.

The Residents are known for their anonymity and eccentricity. Originally from Louisiana, they they moved to San Francisco in the early 1970s and formed Ralph Records. The tour band members always appear masked, (most often in giant eyeballs with top hats), are not referred to by name or even pseudonym, never grant interviews, and communicate entirely through spokesmen at The Cryptic Corporation. Whether the band consists of tour members, or a rotating crews of performers is the subject of much speculation. Their work is sometimes obtuse, often playful, and always imaginative.

The Residents' work spans decades, having embraced many cutting-edge media arts forms and modes of experimentation. Most recently, The Residents have produced internet-based work, such as 2006's The River of Crime, an online community art project and radio drama, and the Timmy videos on YouTube. In October 2006, they were the subject of a retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

Beck was 50/50 to play Tucson last night but was a no-show. Then someone told me today he played in El Paso instead. Any truth to this?

Thanks,

James
