It List: Thursday 7/8/07

The Beatdown/Minx Burlesque/Christian! Teenage Runaway (Dan's Silver Leaf)

Not the kind of show you see at Dan's everyday and I don't mind one bit. There will be two bands and a burlesque troupe so it's actually an uncommon show for most venues. The Beatdown plays throwback soul-rock and I've enjoyed the songs on the page, so this is a good chance to see if the magic translates live. They feature members of S-1 Committee, Pointy Shoe Factory, Denton County Revelators and a handful of other bands that escape me right now. Christian! Teenage Runaway have only improved upon something that I didn't think could get any better. This is probably the coolest Dan's show since Our Band Could Be Your Life back in October.

Chief Death Rage/I Kill Cars/The Daily Beat (J & J's Pizza)

Chief Death Rage have really honed their sludgy aesthetic to an impressively devastating extreme. If you close your eyes and just suck in all the reverb and riffage, it's like a Budgie bootleg blasted from an overdriven PA. All the more fucked up when it's bouncing off of the concrete floors and wooden ceilings of J & J's tonight. I Kill Cars sound like pretty good slop-punk. The Daily Beat on the other hand take a much more melodic and sing-song approach to the stigmatized genre.

Lost Generation with DJ Wanz Dover (Fallout Lounge)

Wanz will be showing highlights from the Fela Kuti documentary: Music Is The Weapon from 1982. Sounds rad.

DJ G (Hailey's)

im totally excited about the minx/beatdown show!

minx really does choreograph all their numbers and they work very hard at making sure that they feel very vaudeville--i love it. anonymously knocking ladies who arent your type is just sad. loser.

To porkrinds and other grrl haters out there, I am sure you would you prefer mutal masterbation with you're best buddy watching "toothpicks in boy shorts with tit jobs" instead? PUSSY!

The MINX girls are actually quite attractive. Have you ever even been to one of their performances?

ummm.....our band could be your life was pretty fucking lame. the fact that the last "great" show at dan's was a night of cover songs by a bunch of mediocre bands is saying very, very little.

What is peoples problems today. MINX displays beautiful women, REAL women. I like my women with curves. NONE of the girls are fat in thw whole show. They are full bodied women. Go jack off to women who are six feet tall and eighty pounds in Vogue if that is what gets you off, but in the real world women are beautiful when they are natural. Real womens bodies are designed to grow children, and if you weigh eighty pounds you can't even have a rag. Same for those guys who like there women hairless like their 10 year old sisters. GROSS. GO MINX, those ladies get me going.
