It List: Thursday 12/28/06

Druids on Parade/The Sandrags/Rocket for Ethiopia/Baile de Destruction (1919 Hemphill)

This show is all hardcore with some leaning towards early eighties thrash and some of it being more modern and spastic powerviolence. Baile de Destruction is a one man laptop and guitar noise act.

Pilotdrift/The Push/Red Monroe/St. Vincent (The Granada)

Pilotdrift are the Good Records prodigies that made a local splash by being the first act signed to the store's associated record label with the same name. The Push have a website with an intro that sounds a lot like Come on, Eileen. Local favorites Red Monroe are are making this their last Dallas show of the year before embarking on what looks like a very well planned tour in January. According to St. Vincent's Myspace page, singer Annie Clark has played with Glenn Branca but she's also played with The Polyphonic Spree. That's kind of like saying you've played basketball with Michael Jordan but you've also played with the "special needs" kids from your local middle school. I thought the songs on her page were well written and fairly pleasant, actually.

DJ G (Hailey's)

No cover, as always.

The Pumpers/The Terminals (J & J's Pizza)

Two entertaining and energetic bands with different approaches to the same genre. The Terminals play garage rock that's rooted in a lot of organ-heavy 45's from yesteryear. The Pumpers are dirtier and more punk influenced.

ADD: Lost Generation will be happening at Fallout Lounge tonight. Here is what Wanz will have:

"From 10pm to 11pm I will be showing Miles Davis Live at The Isle of Wight 1970. This concert took place 6 months after the recording of Bitches Brew. It is pretty sick and every member of Miles's band looks like they are on Acid.This week Dj Sets will feature: 1. the Best of 2006 mix which will feature my favorite records, best bands and DJ's I saw this year 2. a James Brown Tribute mix3. A garage rock mix that will rock your socks off."

The Granada show last night was good. St Vincent is very good. I also see why you guys talk about Red Monroe - very strong set.
