It List: Tuesday 8/14/07



Here we have two events I can't really endorse at all.

Dallas Observer Music Awards (The Granada): The event everyone has been waiting for. All the controversy, all the hype, all of the showcases at poorly chosen venues, leading up to this one glorious night where we celebrate C-list Dallas celebrities and all the free Red Stripe you can drink. (bottled fucking water however is one dollar, even if you're VIP. ). Big D Little D had better not rip off the We Shot JR street apparel look from last year's awards, we worked really hard on those outfits. I don't know what we have in store for everyone in the event that we would have to an accept an award, but I do know that this year's ceremony has made me nostalgic for the general mediocrity of last year's, and that's something that's hard to admit considering I gave a somewhat scathing review last time around. The supergroup theme of this year's headliner is highly indicative of the current baffling and somewhat clueless state of the paper and not all of that group is what I would call super. And to think that their music editor had the nerve to call our anons "boring." Judging from their recent coverage, please let me be bored. All hangups aside, just try to have a good time.



Sean Hannity Freedom Concert featuring Montgomery Gentry, Lee Greenwood (Nokia Theater): This is what I like to see. A Hannity related event that was co-created and sometimes presented by Oliver North is definitely freedom in action. You too can become a felon on multiple counts in our country, sell weapons and drugs to a worldwide network of everyone from our supposed enemies in Iran to Central America, testify and be sentenced, and then get off the hook to not only become a FOX News correspondent (wonder if he has a Myspace?) but to also put together family-friendly events like this. If that isn't what real freedom's all about, I don't know what is. Yes, I know it's for charity but the irony here is amazing on a level that a kid with a colored bandana around his neck and an Alf t-shirt can't touch.

WHAT!? it's completely irrelevant. even the nominations are ridiculous. it's to be point of offensive that such a large event is treated with an air of complete 'who gives a fuck' by the DO. and then when they get criticized people who have REAL interest in local music get talked to like a bunch of children acting up. it's fucking ass-backward, but you're right what would you expect from DALLAS fucking TEXAS right. what anyone does around here that is actually worth a damn IS pretty irrelevant when you live in this fucking part of the country anyway.

Backsliders acceptance speech:

The whole thing is bullshit. If The dallas Observer did there Job and did better coverage the then at least the people that should get nominated would get nominated. Leaving the nominations up to an uneducated public is the dumbest idea ever. The Public does not pay attention to what is going on locally. The Observer barely pays attention. All it would take to turn this town around is a few smart people that truly want to inform the public and put together and promote interesting bills in all types of genres. Until the people that control the media and the clubs are replaced all is lost.

The thing is, it just shows how much Dallas sucks...in most major cities with culture even the local city papers ARE hip, and do speak the voice of the music scene, Dallas just dosent have one...im not saying most cities awards are "hipster awards" but i am saying that hip artists/bands do get recognized and are more "in tune" with the actual art/music scene....

I don't know if everyone is "upset" either. I think people were just afraid that the whole thing was going to be a joke, and guess what? It was.

We didn't even send someone this year because we just didn't have the time, energy or desire to do so. I think a lot of people felt the same way.

================================

voter driven for nominations where people don't get proper coverage of what is going on in their backyard is kind of like a national election where only the republicans are allowed to have access to the media. The Observer does not even cover Jazz, Blues, Electronic music, indie, local Club DJ's or anything remotely undergroun. People have to turn to blogs and message boards to find out about anything that does not suck. There are just as many good bands here as there are in Austin. Except in Austin they have good record stores, promoters and media that really pay attention to their local scene. A true sense of self awareness.

bobby patterson killed and ppt doing a cover of “no one can do it better” was worth the price of admission…which was free…as were the drinks….uh why are you fucks complaining again?

the observer is one part of a big corporation and many of the decisions that are made regarding music content and content providers have been made by old people far away from dallas so any hopes of you getting a write up on your little brothers band who played in your parents garage last night is minuscule

the awards are a popularity contest run by an organization that isn’t very organized so if you want fair go play a video game

seems to me that this thread is a perfect embodiment of what the local scene is known for…blow-hards sitting around and bitching about things sucking and instead of doing something about it they just look for someone to blame….so sure lets blame some company in phoenix for the local scene sucking…sounds good to me

besides who needs the observer when we have blogs like weshotjr that define themselves by what the observer is not

define ourselves based on what the observer isn't? If by that you mean "hey, we're we shot jr, we actually know what the fuck we're talking about and have an active interest in music," then I guess you could say that. But honestly, we've pretty much ignored the Observer throughout most of our existence.

Sure, we've written little comments about the paper here and there, but really, we ARE doing our own thing, every day, and like it or not, you can't say for one second that we spend any significant time fighting the observer or detailing our problems with it. They are the ones who write articles about us, not the other way around.

And PPT playing a cover song is your argument FOR the awards, right? You sound pretty lame m'man.

12:40 PM  
Blogger stonedranger said...

And furthermore- everything you said about the observer as an organization is true... which is why it sucks so bad. I don't think anyone blames the observer alone for the negative aspects of local music, but they are certainly part of the problem.

I think if you look at the local "scene" throught he eyes of the observer, it does suck. However, if you read this blog much, you'd realize that there actually is alot going on locally, worthy of mention. Which I think, is cause for much of the complaining about the observer. Which, being the main public resource that covers this sort of thing (locally), is totally clueless. I think alot of these "blow-hards" you speak of may surprise you, as they most likely ARE doing something about it. It just sucks to work hard on being creative, and have your primary local music publication spit in your face, by way of writing articles about transvestite cover bands, or whatever else bullshit they write about these days.

My 2 cents.

Oh, and aside from the free food, and limited-unlimited free booze, the whole thing was one disappointment after another. That was for you Drex.

Does the Observer even have regular Art coverage? Wherever the artists are that's where the musicians are and soon that's where everyone wants to be and that makes a scene whole. One of the reasons why The Observer sucks is their scale is tipped. So Dallas is all about restaurants, shopping and cover bands according to DO anyways. Paper media is dead in Dallas.

When I visit family in Portland, I pick up their version of the Observer to find shows to see while I'm there. I find good ones most every time.

I cringe at the thought of having to do that as a visitor here around and ending up at a Salim show when there is something badass and ignored right down the street.

But seriously, congrats to Shanghai 5 for best jazz act. Bravo, Observer readers.

Why do people hate salim?

His music may not be your cup o tea... but he at least has tried to do something here with the music community and has brought together alot of artists that normally wouldnt go together at all.

He is living an artists dream.. he gets to record artists all day long..and not work a lousy day job. He plays a few shows now and then when he feels like it.. not because he wants to "make it", but because he genuinely enjoys playing music and just having fun.

In the past 2 years all this anti-salim sentiment has risen for no good reason.

2:56 PM  
Blogger amandacobra said...

my issue with this whole thing is not THE OBSERVER but the music section. as people have already pointed out, the DO is a business and it is kept afloat by ad revenue. we all happen to live in a city that has more resturants per square centimeter (go metric USA!) than any other US city. also, dallas is full of wealthy people who like to shop at places like the galleria. so it's to be expected that a dallas paper would focus on food and shopping more than the arts.

my issues is with the poor quality of the music coverage. sandwiched between the movie reviews and ads is usually two or three pages of worthless drivel. i'm further annoyed that instead of trying to improve upon said section and listening to the tips coming from people who do have their ear to the ground, the music editor has instead chosen to ridicule those people, discard their tips and generally write with a laughable mix of ego and cluelessness. it's one thing to be way off the mark and have your finger miles from the pulse but it's another thing to be cocky about sucking.

oh and "cocky about sucking" would make a great headline for the next she dick write up. it's been a couple of weeks now. we're dying out here.

Poor quality of music coverage, poor quality of art coverage. The two go hand in hand. Music is an art. The only reason why there is even a music section in that forsaken paper is because bands play at bars and it's all about alcohol. Don't fool yourself into thinking anyone cares. Bars making bucks and the world turns round and round.
