Whoa! Total 4/20 Weekender Freak-out, bro!

The guy to the left is pretty much the personification of the reason why I'm embarrassed to even mention "4/20" in polite conversation. However, seeing as how I'm currently re-reading Hunter Thompson's Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail (its creepy how many parallels you can draw between 72 and 04), I guess I'll let my freak flag fly and tell everyone to go take drugs or something on this very special day. Besides, everything else about April 20th is pretty creepy, meaning that we could probably do a lot worse than a dude with a funny hat and bongos. Cool? Anyway, I anticipated having more time to do this than I do, so things are going to be a bit short today. But what do you care? You're all probably too high to read anyway. Lets go:


The Party with Select/Sober/Witnes (Zubar): There hasn't been a party at Zubar in a while, I believe, so this might be your best bet tonight if you're looking for a chance to get stupid at a straight up dance party.

Stereo On Strike with U-Gene/Wanz and Ineka/Matthewmatics/Stephen R(Avenue Arts): Promising diverse sets of minimal techno, DJ sets and live laptop performances (along with a keg), this should be a great spot both before and after hours to party and hear some music that you pretty much can't find anywhere else in the metroplex. $6 cover.

Mad Scientists/Violent Squid/Oveo/Christian! Teenage Runaways (Secret Headquarters): All over the place experimental show in Denton featuring the rotating cast of characters known as Violent Squid, lead by Ty Stamp and including collaboration with members of Oveo and Shane English of Ghosthuster, Undoing of David Wright and Chief Death Rage. This is also Mad Scientists last show in their current incarnation.

Tapes N Tapes/Harlem Shakes/Red Monroe(Granada)

The Baptist Generals (Dallas Public Library- 8pm): This is free, literally goes on all night, and takes place in the, um, big library downtown? Yep. Baptist Generals play at 8, and you can get the low down on all the other stuff going on right here.

Young Jeezy/Lil Wayne/Fat Joe (Smirnoff Music Centre)

Bob White and the F-Electrics are playing with someone at J&Js for free starting at 9pm. I'd tell you who else was going to be there, but I can't read the damn poster.


Adult/Parts and Labor/Dan Deacon (Hailey's): Be sure to show up in time to see the excellent parts and Labor.

Hot Flash Party (Fallout Lounge)

Pete Rock DJ set (Minc): And I reminisce over this guy, for real. No idea what kind of stuff Pete Rock is busting out these days, but I bet his DJ shows absolutely fucking rule. Read more about his long career here. Sober and Select will be opening.

The Noise Revival Orchestra Experience/Dana Falconberry/Grass Fight (Secret Headquarters)


Check back with us for Sunday shows AND the start of our Mavs playoff blogging... I know some of the anons are super excited about that! Sorry to have to be so short. Also sorry if I screwed any links up.

Me too, but just remeber who coaches them... Nellie. Not exactly a playoff success story.

I think the Mavs are really pissed off that people think they might lose to an 8, and I predict Mavs in 5. You heard it here first.

She reached out and touched Talin on the forehead. He felt a slight tingling, like an itch behind his eyes. A moment later it was gone. I have linked us so that I can appear to you regardless of the distance, but I will only appear to you henceforth in your dreams. The way is safer and less costly. It is very important that you rest now and again, when you are safe.

first time to go to avenue arts. this is one thing that denton does not have! reminded me of the motor street warehouse parties and the Hazy Daze parties at S.O.A.(where Minc is now) and other revolving places 'back in the day', whatever that phrase means. glad to see Big D picking up again in this area.

Dan Deacon was the highlight for me last night. I like getting blown (away) by strangers:)

I have seen P & L about 4 times now, this was way better than the last JJs and RGRS shows. adult. good, yet repetitive, so it mimiced their studio work.

too much indie rock in P&L's sound.
not bad enough to hate.
not good enough to enjoy.
I can't imagine why they are continuing to tour with Adult. for another 5 or 6 shows.
booking agent favor trading?
