It List: Wednesday 9/12/07
I know we pretty much never post record reviews and stuff when we're supposed to, but we ARE currently working on a couple good features, and you can expect to see them soon. Anyway, there are a few good things going on tonight that you might want to know about. Unfortunately, one of them is NOT the Never4Git Fest, which was supposed to feature Angry Businessmen, Koji Kondo, Best Fwends and several other good acts at Bruce Hall on the UNT campus this evening. Apparently there was a mix up with the college permit paperwork for now. However, the fest's organizers (the same people who run 715 Panhandle) tell me they have some plans for their DIY space that we might just reveal to you soon.
Taxi Fare with DJ Nature (Zubar): Nature is kicking off his new reggae, one drop and dancehall weekly at Zubar tonight, and if anyone in Dallas can make something like that work, it's him. He tells us he'll be playing a lot of classic 80's tracks and dub in the beginning of his set, and will then transition into contemporary dubstep later in the evening. Sounds pretty cool.
Akkolyte/Yells at Eels (Red Blood Club): For me, Akkolyte's performance at SHQ was the highlight of our awards party on Saturday. I honestly don't know a whole hell of a lot about grindcore outside of the basics (yes, I've listened to Napalm Death), but Akkolyte's presence on the scene is one of the best arguments I've ever heard in favor of exploring the genre in more depth. Tonight, the brothers Gonzalez will be celebrating Stefan's birthday by playing an Akkolyte set as well as a set with their father in Yells at Eels.
Oveo/Locks/Dirty Water Disease (The Cavern): A rare chance to see the excellent Oveo in Dallas, and since it appears that they might be playing one of their last shows with the present line-up, you might want to wonder over to the Cavern to give this a try.
Short Attention Span Theatre is now going down at Rubber Gloves rather than Hailey's. Not sure what the video theme is this week.
