Weekender 1/12/07-1/14/07

I know that most of you bros and babes will probably be throwin' down your 56 bucks to see Red Hot Chili Peppers and Gnarls Barkley on Saturday, but for those who can't afford to be so fuckin' sweet, heres some other stuff to do (updates this weekend if warranted):


You might not need to go anywhere other than Greenville Ave for quality entertainment this evening. Never thought I'd say that.

The Octopus Project/Pilotdrift/Treewave/Mom (CJ Davis' Birthday Party-Good Records): First and foremost, this show is free. Second, there will be free beer. Third, there will be free food. And oh yeah, the line up is great too. I'm not sure if CJ picked it or what, but its probably the strongest we've seen for a Good Records in store and one of the most solid shows to happen anywhere in a while. You probably know enough about all these bands to avoid having to read descriptions, so I won't write any. What I will say, however, is that Mom (clearly the least well known of the bunch) is well worth showing up early to see. They're one of the most interesting bands in Denton these days, and if you're a fan of any of the other bands on this bill (particularly the excellent Octopus Project), I promise you'll dig their fragile, atmospheric instrumental compositions. And by the way, Treewave's Paul Slocum will be playing this show solo. Mom is supposed to go on at 8.

The Party w/ Select, Sober and Prince Klassen (Zubar): It seems that Austin's Prince Klassen will be filling in for Nature at the Party this week, and based on what we've heard about his sets at the Beauty Bar, he'll be a nice addition to the Central Booking crew.

Ghostcar/Stumptone (The Cavern): In between the early show at Good and the dance Party at Zubar, you can catch two underappreciated local bands that should be fantastic to see in a small place like The Cavern. We're hoping Paul Baker's visuals will be a part of this show as well, but we're not sure whether thats happening or not.


Lollipop Shoppe Spy Party w/ DJs Tigerbee, Pandaflower and Stephen R (Avenue Arts): These Avenue Arts dance parties are pretty hit or miss for the most part, but when theres a good crowd in the house, the typically choice selections of the Lollipop Shoppe DJs can really create an electric atmosphere. Wonder what this one will be like....

Warren Jackson Hearne and the Merrie Murdre of Gloomadeers/Mauve Ed Experience (Secret Headquarters):

Hearne brings his iconic retroisms to SHQ on Saturday. The Gloomadeers are his large backing band that is as well versed as he in spinning various archaic musical threads into a unique and often sinister-sounding take on folk and roots music.

A Hawk and A Hacksaw/History at Our Disposal/ShitCannon Love, Martin (Films of Martin Iles' Choosing) (Rubber Gloves):

Interesting show. A Hawk And A Hacksaw is Neutral Milk Hotel drummer Jeremy Barnes in a one-man-band project that I hear has to be witnessed live to fully understand his accomplishment of this notoriously difficult feat. And about those films, here's former Good/Bad Art Collective director, Martin Iles:

The thing is in two sections. The first features PAPER RAD, Evangelist A.A. Allen, Naisu No Mori, blind women touching cactuses (Werner Herzog), and an animated Jack T. Chick tract.The second section is a pile of silent video shit that the group History at Our Disposal will accompany.In total it's about an hour of stuff, and very little of it you can rent, or find on the internets.

This sounds like a really great mix of footage. Herzog and Paper Rad in the same night!

The City is the Tower/Koji Kondo/Trifle Tower/The Mad Conductor (1919 Hemphill): Mad Conductor wins the award for "Most embarrasing ska band we've heard in years." Koji Kondo are the remains of Blonde Girls, part of Druids On Parade, and most significantly, a guy who actually tries to sing into the microphone. Trifle Tower is brutal epic hardcore with high pitched screaming and features the fascinatingly complex drumming of Jared Lawson, from Man Is Mostly Water.


Can't find anything as of yet. Check back with us this weekend.

Sorry, but the show tonight at Double-Wide is cancelled. Spitfire cancelled because of the weather and we can't very well do it without them.

We'll try to reschedule.

Very sad to report that the Denton A Hawk and A Hacksaw show has been called off, due to the bad weather. Think safe thoughts for Jeremy and Heather, as they made it into TX, but cannot make it all the way here.

We will try and reschedule this bill for another time.

Pinebox Serenade is playing tonight at Dan's for those in Denton (or Dallas who are willing to make the possibly scary drive).

The WJH solo show will be great, as will the Mauve Oed Experience. Mauve Oed used to partner up quite regularly with Denton expat/ NYC celebre Corn Mo

Tree Wave blew my mind, and Ghostcar finished it off. Stumptone and Octopus Project were fantastic as well. Does anybody else think Pilotdrift is less exciting than they used to be? Still, 'twas a great night for music.
