It List: Halloween

Health/Crime Novels/Daniel Francis Doyle/Nouns Group/Eat Avery's Bones (Eighth Continent): So there are two big Halloween shows in Denton tonight-- and this is going to be the LOUD one. You can learn more about Health by reading DL's interview just below this post, and I'm guessing that many of you are looking forward to this. You really haven't been able to wander around MP3 blogs for the past few months without seeing something about Health or one of their noise/art/hardcore L.A. contemporaries, and just about every account I've ever read of their live shows indicates that yeah, you probably want to see this. Not sure what time things get kicked off tonight or when Health is due to go on (maybe someone from the 8th can fill us in in the comment section, and please don't tell us that thing is going until 2), but just about any time you get there will be a good time, with a solid line up all the way through to keep you company.

Mom/Florene/Mistress/Fizzy Dino Pop/Sticky Buns (Rubber Gloves): Maglium Records affiliated event servers as the (mostly) softer side of Denton Halloween this evening with an interesting and eclectic line up that will be free to see if you wear a costume. Sticky Buns, Mom AND Mistress on the same bill? If that doesn't demonstrate some of the diversity in Denton music, then I don't know what does.

Halloween Party with DJs Nature, Sober and Select (Granada): Not sure what else is going on in Dallas tonight, so I'm thinking this party will be the place to be tonight. Last time I heard Nature at Granada, the sound system seemed surprisingly sufficient for dance music, and if they fill this place up tonight, I'm guessing this show will be really fun.

And the Great Tyrant is playing at the Chat Room in Fort Worth, but I don't know the rest of the line up and don't have time to find out.

Dokodemo Doa (Cool Beans): Just wanted to add that the beloved and recently reformed Denton act, Dokodemo Doa is playing the roof of Cool Beans tonight at 10. This set will consist mostly of old songs but they are apparently going to start working on new material. Show is free.

It's What We Get/Liquid Bounce/Short Attention Span Theater (Hailey's): It's What We Get is the DJ Duo comprised of members of Ghosthustler and Gazelles. This is the second Halloween Party at Hailey's put on by We Made Out Once.

And if you really want a good scare on Halloween, think about the possibility of reading ANOTHER update on the state of Deep Ellum in the Observer. Can boring be scary?

Dokodemo Doa on the roof of Cool Beans at 10pm. this has been a long hoped for, long awaited show (several years, in fact) and it will be eerily beautiful, loud as fuck, and quite likely will bring on an epiphany of sorts (never fails to do so, actually).

Dokodemo Doa is: Sarah Alexander vocals, effects, bells, recorder - Kaori Hashimoto keyboard, kaoss pad - Ryan Williams bass - Billy Myatt drums

oh, and it's FREE
