It List: Tuesday 2/13/07

Benefit show for The Family Gateway Center featuring The Black Angels/White Ghost Shivers/ Shanghai 5/The Tah-Dahs (Granada): The Family Gateway Center is an organization that provides various services to the homeless and families in crisis. This show features some of the state's most beloved acts including the ever popular Black Angels. They will be playing their set while Hal Samples provides some background visuals. Film shorts by Samples will also be shown in between acts. White Ghost Shivers are another Austin group that have rather anachronistic influences and they've been impressively entertaining when I've seen them. Tickets for this show are $10 and $15 and doors open at 7:00. So if you go, don't show up at 1:20 in the morning like everyone else in Dallas.

(And I really should add: if you saw the Black Angels live like a year or two ago and didn't dig it, you might want to give them another chance. Their live show has improved greatly over the past 6-12 months, and the last time we saw them at Gypsy, they sounded incredible.)

Astro Jazz Quartet (Pearl)

Music is from 8-11. Show is free.

Bridges and Blinking Lights/Swim Swim/New Science Projects/Nouns Group (Club Dada): So it's New Music Tuesday at Club Dada and here we have four bands and I'm not sure if any of them are all that new. Well, they might be new to somebody I suppose. Bridges and Blinking Lights is a pretty straight ahead rock group from Denton that has been around for what seems like forever. New Science Projects is another one of those acts that you can never tell if it's one person or a whole group and their page has at least one pretty memorable song with a dark almost cabaret type melody. Swim Swim plays poppy songs and will have an excellent opportunity to increase their local profile by opening up for The Polyphonic Spree in March. Nouns Group has a violin and a lot of yelling.
