It List: Wednesday 12/27/06




The Day God Died/Violent Squid/Chief Death Rage/Lindby (Rubber Gloves): Featuring a diverse line up to say the least, the headliner might very well scare the crap out of any indie pop fans that show up to hear Lindby, a band that apparently features three different dudes named Nick. Honestly, considering how young the Nicks are, Lindby's ready for Ben Fold's opening slot theater pop is pretty well put together, but you'll probably have a hard time listening to it for more than five minutes unless you're "totally into cute stuff." Elsewhere, you guys know the deal on CDR, one of the best bands in Denton as of right now, and judging by what I've learned about Violent Squid in recent weeks, there is absolutely no telling what you're going to get with their set, but it will very likely be highly experimental and a lot of fun. Maybe Ty can tell us whats up in the comment thread. Denton's The Day God Died is a tight and rhythmically forceful metal band that you could probably label "speed" if you wanted to, although they probably aren't as fast as, say, Slayer. We'll just say that if you're looking for rock tonight, there is probably nowhere else you should be.

Flashlight Party/Gazelles/Wild In The Streets/Jeremy Yocum (Hailey's): Unfortunately, this will apparently be the last Flashlight Party featuring the full crew, as the guys are packing up for New York and Austin some time this week. I've had the pleasure of seeing Flashlight Party spin on a number of occasions, and I must say that even though they probably play some of the same records you'll hear at hipster dance parties around the country, they really seem to have a natural ability to move a crowd, keep them into it, and throw in enough surprises to keep things interesting throughout their sets. Great taste and a party throwing instinct are pretty much the fundamentals of being a good DJ, and these guys have both. I'd expect a big crowd to send them off (or big for Denton during Christmas break anyway), and even though I can't say a ton of good things about the predictable MTV2 playlist keyboard pop of Gazelles, I'd imagine this show is going to be a lot of fun.

Move on with the rest of the grown-ups, fucktard. How old are you? Don't you have a kid now? Come stay with me in Dallas next time COS visits when you can't pay your electric bill because of your important art.

Violent Squid “You’re on Vacation”
Airy, incidental recordings with a pastoral, acid-folk circa ’74 Krautrock feel from these unpredictable Denton madcaps.
(Top 10 local album)

i'm 24. shit. i'm so very old.
how old are you?
