Weekender 9/7/07-9/9/07

After a few of the normal struggles, we have the party ready to go for you guys on Saturday, and we have a weekender for you to. Expect us to return to our normally stellar content next week: CD reviews and interviews to come. Here we go:


Hands Up wit Yo Majesty /Nature /Sober /Select (The Loft): I've decided that I'm not a big Yo Majesty guy, but I do have to say that it's great to get a chance to hear Nature, Sober and Select at a big place like the Loft (as long as their security doesn't act like a bunch of doucheholes again). The Loft has a lot of downsides as well, but the balcony is a great place to hang out, the sound system is solid, and there will probably be a lot of drunk party chicks there hanging out tonight. Uh, thats a cool Friday in my book.

The Undoing Of David Wright /The Frenz/Electronik Warfare /Florene (Hailey's): So, awards sweeper Shane English is playing in Electronik Warfare now as well as The Undoing and various other projects. I guess you'd be in demand too if you won something as relevant and important as the We Shot JR popular vote. Keep dreaming, Guitar Center. Anyways, this show is definitely the best live show tonight and even though an A-Trainless Undoing worries me, I've heard they pull it off. This is a thematically coherent lineup, with The Undoing and EW sharing some traits, and The Frenz and Florene being a little milder and generally more influenced by the gentler side of electronic infused rock music. As with any show where this crowd's involved, expect some surprises.

Dub Assembly (Green Elephant): The one year anniversary for the criminally underappreciated Unit One dubstep night. Not that people at SMU give a shit whether or not Mundo has received positive reviews in Wire magazine, but I hope the people of Dallas start to notice the great dubstep we have here before the people in London forget that they ever started it.

Long Attention Span Theater (Strawberry Fields): At 8pm, they'll be showing German film Der Wald Vor Lauter Baumen, which translates to "the forest for the trees." Don't know much about it other than the fact that it's about the struggles of a young teacher.


WSJR Awards Party with Nature/Sober/Select/Ghosthustler/Farah/Prince William/Akkolyte/Koji Kondo/Angry Businessmen/Lebanon/Zanzibar Snails/Douche (Fra House-FREE): In case you're a total dork and you don't already know, this shit is free and all ages, and there will be free beer for those who are 21 and up. And if you're lucky, we won't get all "Suite" on you and turn away everyone who isn't a hot chick after midnight. Just depends on how sassy we get. You can see we added the mighty Prince William to the list of DJ performances as well. Big thanks to Pancakes for Mattie Records and Strawberry Fields for helping us out btw... many of the bands and entities involved with the party will have CDs and stuff to give away and sell, so you should consider buying something since you won't be paying for cover or drinks.

So The Observer's Jesse Hughey commited a total "bro pax" by not realizing that Sean Kirkpatrick's cover of "Tonight The Bottle Let Me Down" was, well...a cover and even went so far as calling it cliche without realizing it was kind of the source material for cliched drinking songs around the world. In his defense, maybe he only received the album in MP3 format and those don't come with liner notes. I mean, why would anyone in Texas be familiar with Merle Haggard? Kirkpatrick's playing the last of twenty CD release shows tonight with a great lineup featuring the always punishing and powerful Great Tyrant as well as new Denton residents Silk Stocking. Singer/songwriter Will E. Lee opens the show.

Mom/George Neal /Jen Seman /Delphi/Tame...Tame and Quiet/Florene (Secret Headquarters): Fundraiser show for

Centro-matic /Tre Orsi /Bridges And Blinking Lights /Handbrake (Rubber Gloves-FREE): I bet it's weird for Dentonites when they realize that the free Centro-matic show is the SECOND best thing going on Saturday night. J/k y'all! Love ya :) I'm not the world's biggest Cetro-matic fan, but they are obviously well respected and good at what they do, and I'm sure this will be a fine show. But other than this free week finale, the RGRS free week has been pretty weak compared to last year's, hasn't it?

Red Monroe/Baboon /Saboteur /Jonathan Tyler And Northern Lights/Odis Odis (Granada): CD release show for Red Monroe, who seem to be making a play for the big time with the release of their sophomore album. We got our hands on an early copy and you'll probably see a review early next week.

yeah, they're having it at a house and i'm glad it's that house. i've seen bands from all over the country play at that house and i like every one. it seems logical that weshotjr would want to have a show at a house that is so reputable in its booking skills.

besides, they said they have a backup plan so if it gets busted who cares? sounds like a hell of a time/possible adventure to me.

calling Great Tyrant "goth" is pretty off the mark.

Saying Great Tyrant is goth is like saying Jesus is real: anyone that hears you say it immediately knows you're the most ignorant person in the room.

The Great Tyrant is so goth they're dead.

Daron = Ex-goth with a goth hangover

The Great Tyrant = melodramatic, but not really goth. Although definately appeals to goth kids.

"bro pax"?

I do believe you meant "bro pas" as in faux pas? Right?! You made a spelling faux pas in that case. Maybe "braux pas"? Sucks when clever flops huh?
