It List: Tuesday 3/27/07

You know how we always say "coming up this week blah blah" and then whatever we say is going to happen doesn't actually happen until way after we say its supposed to? Well this week, you can actually expect good stuff, so stay tuned. We've all been a little busy lately, but you'll see things getting back in gear within the next day or two. We've got a couple new writers that will hopefully add to our ability to cover more ground each week, so we're looking forward to it. And so are you.

Church of the Snake/Clipd Beaks/Chief Death Rage (Rubber Gloves): I don't know anything about all the personal shit that people have been throwing back and forth around here concerning Rubber Gloves and it's owner, but the phrase "pick your battles" certainly comes to mind every time I read an overly negative comment directed towards one of the best all around commercial venues in either Denton or Dallas. In any event, tonight's show promises to be a can't miss in this music expert's mind, and I'll tell you why. First, Chief Death Rage. You already know why they're good. Second, Tigerbeat 6's Clipd Beaks, whose spaced out noisy industrial psychedelic rock has the potential to destroy Rubber Gloves much the same way that Indian Jewelry did a few months ago. A near perfect blend of so much that I like (and not your normal Tigerbeat 6 thing either), I'd be willing to bet the price of admission that they'll be more than worth seeing, and anyone thats into Deerhunter, Liars or the Black Angels will probably agree with me. Third, Church of the Snake. I admittedly don't know a whole lot about this band, but shit: the few things I have heard from them are quite exciting. Listen to the little snip on their Myspace page if you'd like further proof. I usually try not to be so reckless with making a recommendation about a band I don't know, but their brutal songs make them seem worth the risk to me.
And if you're down Dallas way and feeling a bit adveturous, you can head over to Club Dada (strange sequence of words, no?) to see the supremely strange Danielle & Thomas play what I believe is their first show. Head over to their Myspace page and imagine the number of directions that this show might take. Could be great, could be terrible. Who know? I'd listen to "Thomas Meeting Danielle," which is actually a pretty great little track. They appear to be opening, so I'd get there early if you feel like giving it a shot.
