It List: Wednesday 11/15/06

Looks like everything that you might want to do tonight is going on up in Denton....


first, as usual, Dj Nature's the Party will be happening at Rubber Gloves. I don't know what the crowd has been like for Nature up in Denton lately, but last Friday's Party at Zubar was seriously off the fucking hook. Another huge, random crowd with lines forming around midnight, tons of people dancing like you don't normally see outside of one of the big downtown clubs, and Nature, Select and Sober all playing fresh sets that kept everyone guessing until closing. If you like to dance and didn't show up, I feel bad for you. Central Booking basically owns the Dallas party scene right now.

Elsewhere in Denton, Mom will be making a rare live appearance at Andy's on the Square in Denton tonight with In Dot Dat. Mom's complex electro soundscapes are at times gorgeous, meditative and swirling, but at any moment can be overtaken by rougher, noisier parts that will throw listeners off almost completely... in a good way. Their songs build up slowly before they blast off, making you wonder how they got from point A to point B. Toe tapping music its not, but anyone who digs thought out, well put together experimental electronic music needs to hear these guys. They're a gem right in our own backyard.

And finally, for those looking for some metal/math rock stuff, Hailey's has a pretty decent show: These Arms are Snakes/Mouth of the Architect/The North Atlantic/Handbrake . We're not big fans of any of these bands, really, but These Arms are Snakes and Handbrake sound decent enough to at least do a little Myspace listening if this is your kind of thing.

Mouth of the Arhitect is pretty damn good. TOTALLY an Isis rip-off, but I dunno how many bands could pull that off.

Andy's basement bar is on the square in denton... if you step outside of J&Js facing the courthouse, turn to your left and you'll see it on the corner.
