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.

tonight is one of the last shows for a while... we are not changing our line up, but one of us is moving and that will make things logistically interesting... look forward to oveo via hologram coming soon to yr nearest space-port.

I'm only half joking.

SR, holy crap was Akkolyte so great the other night. I completely concur. With my prior lack of knowledge of grindcore, hardcore, any core when I first heard Akkolyte playing a 1919 Hemphill benefit several years ago, trying to raise money for them to get a space, I got so excited for what I heard. And it's only gotten better.

I was telling Stefan Gonzalez after the show, that 1919 benefit show was my first exposure to them. And in between songs at my first exposure, Stefan would go on these diatribes about injustice of various forms to explain what the song was about. After he had explained himself, he would hit the crash cymbal (1,2 1,2,3,4zzzzzzzzzz) and it would just launch into this mass of what we saw the other night. I couldn't discern a word that contributed to what he said the song was about. It didn't matter. I didn't care about justice or injustice. They just bulldozed us all with power and metal. Let's just accept that we love both, define terms so that no one is confused, and go along our merry way.

Thank you for moving your show to SHQ. I got to see all the bands I wanted to see and would have missed had I had to jump venues all night. Everyone was fantastic.

BTW, if you're going to try your best to out the blogmen/women, can anyone seriously imagine Mosely hanging out at every DJ dance event going on every weekday and weekend that SR tends to write about. If you can, you haven't met the man.

Folmer gets one lukewarm review and suddenly he's on a crusade to out the wsjr crew. Way to focus on what's important. Now at least we know what your next album will be about, you obsessive compulsive mess.

It's going to get really hard to exact revenge on everybody in the world who doesn't love your music. But I guess everybody needs a hobby.

Since you obviously read this blog all the time, what do you have to say for yourself, Folmer?

WSJR decided to be anonymous. You knew that when you sent them your CD for review. You, in turn, never said that you desired to be anonymous. That's why the CD that you sent had your name on it. So, why, knowing full well the whole deal with this website, would you send it to them?

It all rings of a spoiled child with a false sense of entitlement.

And now, you are so diluted that you thought that could remain anonymous while lashing out at the anonymous. You are the only person in the world who cares this much. Doesn't it make you feel a little odd?

So the consensus is correct on Folmer, eh ....

Must say, re: Akkolyte, one reason they are awesome is that they pretty much *don't* do things the "standard grindcore" way ... which is to say, no double bass drums, more jazzy style work w/ the snare (albeit heavy and hyperspeed) ... and most of all, no guitar!

I still have yet to see Akkolyte. I'm really looking forward to checking them out in the future.

pretty cool to see Oveo in town last night. Locks was completely bad ass. I know a lot of people that would have really appreciated their set. I bought their cd. Can't wait to give it a listen.

Ya, Locks was great for sure. More people should have been there. I bought their CD as well and I'm excited to listen to it later.

#1 - Locks is totally bad ass and patrick is a peach - I'm sorry i missed it.

#2 - anyone who plays music and thinks anyone should give a shit about it is a bit diluted.

#4 - can't people just show up and play music anymore and not care who bloggs or books them or who's in their "top" friends?

#5 - the answer to that is "no, because everyone acts like high schoolers and this blog is the cheerleader at the lunchroom who sits and decides who's 'cool' and talks shit about the rest.

#6 - i was happy to be uncool in high school because i knew that cheerleader would end up pregnant and fat, and I'm happy to be uncool now.

#7 - I still read this blog because it cracks me up, so thanks for that.

whats wrong with being a cheerleader? have you discussed this particular issue with your therapist?

if you want to sing out, sing out
and if you want to be free be free
cause there's a million things to be
you know that there are.
