Weekender 4/27/07-4/28/07


Modern Til Midnight with Sober/Mom/Kid Koala (Ft. Worth Modern): You know, the DMA has cool night stuff like this too, but they've pretty much never had a line up as quality as the one over at the FWM tonight. First, you know what Sober does, and second, you've heard us praise Mom for the past year, but add in the fact that they somehow snagged Kid Koala for this gig, and you might start wondering how much gas its going to take to get to Ft. Worth. Or how to get to Ft. Worth. I think you just head west on 30 for a while. Anyway, Mom will be performing a brand new, two piece 28 minute composition that they will be releasing later on this year.... they're great live too, so look forward to getting an advance listen to this new material. Sober starts at 730, Mom's at 930 and Kid Koala is at 1030. Ft. Worth might actually rule tonight.

Tussle/Undoing of David Wright/Night Game Cult (8th Continent): You've probably heard enough from us about this show already, and anyone in the know probably didn't need any encouragement to go to it anyway. I could see the 8th getting stuffed tonight, though, so you might want to plan accordingly. In our interview, I told Tussle a bit about the 8th, and they claimed that small DIY places are where they shine. I can believe it.

Dub Assembly with Dhruva& MC Juakali/Mundo & Lifted MC/Keith P & Select/Royal Highnuss/Dragon Man (The Green Elephant): We've been digging on a lot of dubstep around here lately (Kode 9 never seems to fade off our playlist for too long), and after hearing Keith P's excellent new mix CD, we knew that this month's Dub Assembly would be the shit. Not only are two of our favorite local DJs in the mix at this thing, but Dhruva and MC Juakali, two of the main forces behind the dubstep movement in the US, will be headlining an excellent line up. Dallas is quite lucky to have such a tasteful DJ crew bringing this kind of music to the area... a lot of other supposedly "cooler" cities don't have this, and they probably wouldn't have as much fun with it if they did. And oh yeah, I'm guessing that the solid tunes coupled with the Green Elephant's proximity to SMU is going to make this thing drunk hot chick central... and you can always appeal to those SMU girls by being the "weird" guy, can't you? Just tell them that you don't support the war... it'll freak them out. In a good way. You'll probably get a great diverse crowd similar to what the Party has been pulling in, and those are always the best kind in my opinion. This is guaranteed fun in Dallas tonight.

Clap Your Hands Say Yeah/Elvis Perkins in Dearland (Granada): I've seen a couple stories in local and national media this week talking about "oh my god, CYHSY is a total Myspace buzz band," and its really made me laugh a little bit. Yes, they DID generate a lot of organic word of mouth buzz and sold a lot of records on their own, but that was almost two years ago. The story with CYHSY these days is that they released a weak follow up record, making people wonder how good they ever were in the first place. I still like that first one quite a bit, and the excitement surrounding their sold out Gypsy Tea Room show a while back can't be denied. I'm just not super excited about this one.


Tittsworth (Zubar): Tittsworth's sound is probably an even mix of everything that is good about dance music right now. He's associated with the Bmore club sound, but most of the mixes I've heard from him have gone well beyond what that label might indicate. Tons of house, late 80's pop r&B nad hip hop influences all coming together to form a bass heavy but sugary sound that is pure dance floor appeal. Tittsworth is one of the most buzzed about DJs in the country right now, and with Central Booking involved, you won't find a better time anywhere in Dallas tonight.

Nouns Group/Daniel Francis Doyle/Zanzibar Snails/Koji Kondo (Fra House): Fucking loud. Thats probably the best way to describe this show. Every one of these bands is a highlight in their own right, so you can look at this as sort of an all star line up at a great BYOB house venue for FREE. Sounds like the choice in Denton is an easy one tonight. And here is a selection of Daniel Francis Doyle videos if you'd like to find out why you should be sure to catch the guy's set.

Sunset Rubdown/Katie Eastburn/Evangelicals (Hailey's): Sunset Rubdown, the side project of Wolf Parade's Spencer Krug, is actually a lot more interesting than the band that pays his bills, and despite what some of the hip dudes around here might tell you, Evangelicals' joyous psychedelic pop is more than just adequate.

The Marked Men/The Hands/Maaster Gaiden/The Lash Outs (Rubber Gloves)

ya know i remember a night where i got fucked up in the DMA when faux fox played there. stole tons of beer from the 'bar'. drank shit loads of whiskey out front. and set the program sheet on fire and sent it up the elevator. i think that was about as cool as any line-up at the modern tonight. faux fox ruled that night as well. inspiring all these antics. jumped up on tables with idiot dallas wish-they-had-that-kinda-money fucks and generally rocked the fuck out. it was awesome.

Are you in a band? Don't you want people attending your show?
I mean, isn't that the point of blogs like weshotjr?

From now on we'll only post our show information if it is not included on wsjr's front page.

We got bills to pay, and we'd be foolish not to promote our shows to our target audience in a forum such as the one wsjr provides.

As far as promoting your show at another's venue, it's just bad form.

We are staying in Denton for the forseeable future, and are damn proud of it. We'd love to have you c'mon out and visit us sometime.

This is We Shot Jr's blog, not yours, so We Shot Jr can do whatever they want. If they want to post every show that's going on, they can. If they only want to post about the Mavs they are completely free to do so. I've been on here a few times and saw that my band's show wasn't listed and I was just fine with it. Make some flyers, have some fun!

And as far as RGRS posting their shows on here goes, the bottom line is that they have the absolute freedom to do so. Anyone can get on here and do pretty much anything they want. I'm sure some IP addresses could be looked at if there were some serious death threats or what have you, but other than that this is a public forum where anyone can say anything they choose, and anonymously at that. And I think it's a great thing! Thank you to Stoned Ranger and Defensive listening for putting this blog up for all of us. It is informative and (most of the time)fun! :)
