It List: Wednesday 2/14/07


Monsters Of Pot/The Mojo Spleens/1-800-ZOMBIE/Judascow (1919 Hemphill): Monsters of Pot is a Midwestern noise group that sounds like they'll most likely put on a deafeningly intense show. Their track samples consist of ear-ringing ambient frequencies and static-scapes complete with harsh yells reminiscent of Whitehouse. And as if their name wasn't warning enough, watch your weed ladies and gentlemen. The group has threatened to "smoke all of the weed in Texas" after the show. Tourmates The Mojo Spleens are a surf-rock band. Judascow is a local noisemaker who sometimes shows projections to accompany the chaos. 1-800-Zombie is an 8-bit electronic duo with cutesy "Wordy Rappinghood" sounding vocals. They're from Keller and I'm sure you're all aware of the ultra competitive Keller 8-bit scene. You're not? I guess you're not as hip as you thought.

Sober/Select (Clear Lounge)



Violent Squid/Phalanx/Adam Duc Trio /Final Fight/Heartrapers (Dan's Silver Leaf): Violent Squid will be performing a set at this Habitat For Humanity Benefit at Dan's tonight with pizza provided by J & J's. Their music is constantly changing so it's interesting that they're playing in a "battle of the bands" setup. I'm usually opposed to such shows but it's okay since it's for a good cause. Don't know much about the other groups except that I wish Final Fight had a website since I've heard good things about them.

Sticky Buns And Friends Dance Party (Rubber Gloves): It's Valentines Day and if you've given up all hope and have been contemplating death because you're completely alone, miserable, unloved, and unlovable then this might be a good place to get cheered up. Sticky Buns is sticky funz.

Final Fight has been good the 2 times I've seen them. I did however hear that they had an "off night" once at Dan's. But 2/2 was good for me. And that ain't bad.

its my friends in the band: heartrapers not The Heartbreakers. they fucked up the promo. Final Fight is worth checking out even if it is a dumb battle of the bands type thing. Theres gonna be a date auction too. If yr broke/broken hearted come to Sticky Buns! Its free for 21+ and the dates and the drinks are cheap!

Phalanx alone is worth going. This is progressive punk? Or whatever but their music is intense especially live and I wish they would put out a cd...

jesus, battle of the bands? So is it judged by how many tickets you can sell to ur friends, audience response or a panel of "experts"?

I had just come to terms with being unlovable... Now this just opened an old wound and I feel bad again.
