Weekender 8/24/07-8/26/07

Probably not my best writing of the year (or even the week), but you'll have to live with it. Plus, I working on other fun shit for you people, so start having fun with this first:


Meat Puppets/The Only Children (Rubber Gloves): I haven't been this excited to see a band I haven't listened to in 10 years in a long time. Their past several albums have been subpar to say the least, but shit, Meat Puppets have reached that legendary status in underground rock that will keep people coming out to their shows forever. Hopefully the band will show up tonight too. A "can't miss" event if you like guitars.

The Party with Nature, Sober and Select (Zubar): Uh, you already know.

Caves/Kraken Fury/Nataraja/Shawn McMillan (House of Tinnitus): It's apparently H.O.T. resident Rob's birthday this evening, and I'm guessing things will be crazier than usual at the house tonight. Caves are the clear highlight for me here, and although the HOT headliners often don't perform until very late, I'd suggest staying.

Daft Punk's Electroma with Pre-screening DJ set by Keith P (Midnight- Inwood Theater): I've heard mixed reviews about this Daft Punk movie, and perhaps the worst knock has been the fact that no Daft Punk music actually appears in the film (although Todd Rundgren music is featured). I've also heard many of the scenes compared to that 15 minute sequence in Brown Bunny where Vincent Gallo rides his motorcycle around without any dialogue or action. Despite these red flags, however, I still want to see this thing. First of all, I thought Brown Bunny was an underrated movie with or without the blowjob scene, and second, the previews I've seen look interesting enough to take a risk. And you know what? It's not much of a risk when it's a midnight screening at the Inwood and Keith P is DJing a pre party at the bar from 10-12.

Pretty Vacant/Ctrl Alt Del (Fallout Lounge): Justin V will be having his birthday party at Fallout this evening, featuring performances from both Pretty Vacant and Central Booking's CTL ALT DEL. Free, and maybe a less sweaty alternative to the Party, or a place to stop before or after.

Utah Saints (Lizard Lounge)

Long Attention Span Theater Presents Luis Bunuel's The Milky Way (Strawberry Fields)


Hot Flash vs. Dub Assembly feat. Keith P/Schwa/Jason Mundo/Killtronix/Royal Highnuss (Fallout Lounge): Two of the more diverse and interesting DJ crews in Dallas hook up, with Dub Assembly sticking mostly to fashionable, bass heavy London dubstep (but willing to branch out) and Hot Flash playing a lot of, uh, blog house, glitch, disco, soul and whatever else they can find.

Hotel Hotel/The Ostrich Tunning/Aliens (Secret Headquarters)

The Great Tyrant/Vorvodoss/Blood OV/Cleric (Red Blood Club)

Daft Punk's Electroma (Midnight- Inwood Theater)


Wild In the Streets (Hailey's)

i've seen electroma and i can attest to it being fucking awesome. it manages to be long winded at times without dialog, but overall worth checking out.

Ableton live is the only way to go. About 33 of the 35 people that have competed in Deathmatch use Ableton for a good reason. It's easy to learn. You can record a rock band with. You can do electronic music with it. You can DJ with it. It's thw swiss army knife of laptop music. If you need a copy contact me through the Stereo on strike page.

Adobe Audition is easy but extremely limited. No midi. No vst support. No ASIO support. Ableton all the way.

Denton is tired and weary only to the Old Timers and their sympathizers. To us Yung Peepz, it is thriving.

We have like a million great bands, seven adventurous venues within five minutes of each other, and three more a bit further on, places like Strawberry Fields and Art Six showing off visual artists, and good friends and times to be had by all. Art is a Real Threat? New Sabbath festival? Awesome stuff. More often than not our tired and weary bands get on the road and shake it around the country, like real bands should.

The only thing we're missing is a place to show off the written word, but then maybe I am not so up on that jive.


All of this in a pretty small town in Texas. It's pretty amazing.

so trying to figure out who the anons are posting about secret music party and zest.

Zest of Yore - best band that no one goes to see, probably based on a snap judgment of the name or else you don't know the people in the band.

secret music party - dangerously fun. daybreak came a bit to soon

Thanks to everyone who came out to Good Records today. There was a great turnout and the show was amazing. The album is available now and you can pick one up at Good Records, at our website, or soon to be at Recycled in Denton and Strawberry Fields.
The next show is Saturday Sept 1 at Rubber Gloves featuring SEAN KIRKPATRICK, WAR WIZARDS, NEW SCIENCE PROJECTS AND VIOLENT SQUID. It will be great. See you there!

(the final show is Sept 8 at Club Dada with THE GREAT TYRANT, SEAN KIRKPATRICK, SILK STOCKING and WILL E LEE)
