The Weekender 12/15-12/17

Well, the writing thing has been a little slow this week. Sorry about that. With jobs, concerts and real life to take care of, we just haven't had time to write like we've wanted to (the Anons understand, I'm sure). But have no fear local hipsters, because next week we'll have a bunch of year end stuff, including our best albums lists and a piece on this year's best moments in local music. Check back this weekend for weekender updates and shit, sucka.


The Great Tyrant/Faux Fox/Chief Death Rage/Krispee Ones/DJ Nature/Sober/Select (Art Prostitute 2919 Commerce): Have I told you about this show already? Well in case I haven't, Ill just let you know that doors open at 7 and the show starts at 8. There will be a free Shiner Keg inside as well, and its also BYOB if you want to bring some back-ups. James from the Metrognome Collective will be running the sound for us, and the Central Booking guys will be spinning before, between and after the sets. Honestly, this is a line up I would love to see even if the blog wasn't involved, and I'm thinking it will be a good time. No, thats not right. I'm knowing it will be a good time. There will also be a nice stack of free Projection CDs for you to scoop up while you're there (yes, they are finally finished... and they've even got individual tracks and art work and stuff!)

There really isn't anything else going on in Dallas tonight that I'd be interested in (no joke)... but if you're in Denton and just can't leave, there are two shows you might want to check out:

Notes From Underground/Mom/In Dot Dat (Indie Writer Benefit @ Fra House): I don't have a lot of information on this show, including the address of Fra House. I just can't seem to remember it, but maybe someone can hook us up in the comments section or something. Anyway, what I do know is that this will be a really good show. Notes from Underground is just fantastic live (seeing them at Strategies was one of the best local music experiences I've had all year), and Mom is one of the most underrated bands in Denton or Dallas. If the Fra House address does not appear in the comments, I'm sure you can contact Fra Pandolf at their Myspace page and see whats up.

Fishboy/Eat Avery's Bones/Hardin Sweaty and the Ready to Go/Cavedweller/Brooke Opie (Rubber Gloves Christmas Concert hosted by Frank Hejl)


Lost Generation's Berlin Elektro Party with Sean Vargas of High Society, Wanz Dover, Chaka Harta, Keith P, Flashlight Party and Convextion (Avenue Arts-Dallas)

AND- Hot Flash with Dj Stephen R (Fallout Lounge): Wanz' makeout party, which is always a lot of fun, should be a nice little one two punch with Stephen R's Hot Flash. You see, Avenue Arts is right next door to the Fallout Lounge (835 Exposition Ave in Expo Park) in case you didn't know, and I would expect both events to be worth checking out over the course of the night. Luckily, it will be easy for you to do both. Stephen R will be playing dance records and showing random videos on two projection screens, and Wanz and company will be throwing what should be a ridiculous dance party. I'm guessing the musical selections will be pretty much anything goes throughout the night, but I know Keith P will be providing grime, dubstep, and UK Garage. You can also expect dance punk, disco, and just about anything else from the other djs. I just hope Avenue Arts doesn't charge an $8 cover again.

White Ghost Shivers/White Denim/White Drugs (Club Dada- Callithump White Christmas): Remember the other day when I was talking about Squirrel Nut Zippers being a major influence on a bunch of allegedly "cool" indie bands this year? Well, White Ghost Shivers are a band that sounds pretty much exactly like them. Not that this makes them cool or anything... in fact, it kind of makes them uncool. But if goofy cartoon swing is your thing, you'll probably dig them.... which I hope isn't the case. However, this show will be more than worth showing up for with Gorilla vs. Bear favorites White Denim and White Drugs rounding out the bill. ADD: Bob White and The F Electrics are on this bill as well.

And nothing is turning up for Sunday so far, but you can check back with us.

Hooooooly shit. its really lame that what could be the best band in dfw (TT&Q) plays what could be the worst venue you could ever create. I think I would rather see a show at j gillgans or gators than set foot in there again.

Let's toss aside the venue and look at performance. If we utilized the space and filled it with rock music that surpassed what the expectancy should have been, then the venue is negligible. If not, then we didn't do our jobs. Even if we didn't do our jobs, I got to take my shirt off, and I don't care about doing my job. Any way you look at it, I felt golden..

Blogger URN said...

BTW, thank you DTC for promoting and being concerned with the quality of our performance venues. They certainly may be questionable, but, hey, as I inferred, we are the red robed gentleman of your profile photo, stable and composed, yet a little awkward, reassuring everyone it's all being held up. The background is painted afterwords, and that shouldn't be our focus.

urn, your performance was great as always. it cant be denied that the entire event was poorly organized, but it also cant be denied you made the best of it. i feel sorry for the fellow americans who didnt get to play until past 1:30. i cant wait to see you guys again in a spot where theres an actual PA and microphones.

The White Ghost Shivers sound nothing like the Zippers. The Shivers play Hot Jazz the Zippers played more of a 40's style swing. Two very different sounds, its like saying Milton Brown sounds like Lester Young, or the Memphis Jug Band sounds like Robert Johnson. Two very different worlds. Perhaps you should listen to more music and write less.
