It List: Thursday 9/20/07

VHS Or Beta/The Hourly Radio/Walter Meego (The Granada): I hear that VHS Or Beta's DJ sets are superior to their rock performances but you can judge that for yourself at The Granada tonight. Walter Meego seems likes he has more of a handle than they do on the art of the electro-pop single but his music seems less interesting overall if you count VHS Or Beta's earlier work. The Hourly Radio are a Dallas band and Stonedranger seemed to like a single by them that he posted awhile back. I myself am curious about the band's official "VIP message board." Just what exactly goes on there?


Daikaiju/Angry Businessmen/Koji Kondo (1919 Hemphill): Daikaiju is a touring surf band that performs in Kabuki outfits. It's kind of like Shaolin Death Squad but without the late period Rush riffing and atrocious singing. Angry Businessmen play a less traditional surf music, with only a bass guitar, minimal drum kit, and a very active and aggravated lead singer who, judging from the We Shot JR Awards peformance, has a taste for expensive underwear. Koji Kondo had some noisy sax mixed in with their set when I saw them last and it was great.

Dixie WItch (The Wreck Room): Dixie Witch was devastating when I saw them many years ago and I hope that's still the case.

Daikaiju dress up like that wrestler who wore ninja shoes and spat a green blinding mist in the eyes of The Bruiser Brody.
