It List: Thursday 10/25/07

Lost Generation With The Frenz (Fallout Lounge): Tonight's special guest is Sober from The Party, along with Wanz spinning records. It says The Frenz are playing and I'm not sure if that also means that there will be a live drum-set and everything, but I like the idea of live drums at Fallout Lounge. I believe Faux Fox is doing just that this weekend.

80's Night With DJ G (Hailey's):

Parata/Silk Stocking/New Science Projects/Sean Kirkpatrick(Rubber Gloves): This is Parata's CD release show. I'm curious as to what our readers might think of this interview. And correct me if I'm wrong, but is Silk Stocking the only group here without a full length?

Bishop Allen/The Happy Bullets/Calhoun (Granada)

What a pompous, inflated douchebag. really?

"TS: It’s really weird. Denton has this whole shut off little thing. There is a lot of that coming from there, like there’s a lot of rock coming from Dallas, but I don’t feel like any of it is doing anything important. I feel like all the stuff that comes out of Denton, even the cream of the crop, is kind of blasé. It’s style over substance. No real effort. They write a song and it’s on MySpace two days later. There’s no process. They wrote it in a day, put it on MySpace in two days, and then what? I don’t think they imbue their art with much magic unless they put an incredible amount of attention and time into it"

who the fuck is this guy? oh.. and his music.. SUCKS (just listened to his my space)

Silk Stocking has two discs. I can't find my copy of their first one, but I know the most recent, Dialogues With The Devil, is both a full-length and a really big improvement. You should give it a listen.

If I was that ignorant I would probably shut the fuck up and let somebody who knew what they were talking about levy those criticisms. Some are valid, but do you really think (Early Weezer!!!!) this dipshit knows the difference at all?

I can write a song in five minutes, record it in another five, and stick it on myspace in five seconds. I call that efficiency. It's a new art form. I totally agree with what T.J. is saying about people not putting forth any effort toward what they are deeming as art.
But, we aren't living in the renaissance era anymore. It's the 21st century where everything is digital. You don't even have to wait on film to develop anymore.
I don't necessarily think that the art form is as good as it once was. I'm not even saying that it is worth anything. (Time, value, substance). I am saying though that it is something that needs to be embraced.
You can't absolutely believe that you're the only people in an entire city that is actually making something of substance. The thing is, people are making things of substance every five minutes and it is reaching the masses five minutes later.
In my opinion, if you're against that change, you've already been passed by. You're just as much as a novelty as the band that is constantly on myspace. You're "that band" that goes against it all.
If you think of it more as allowing the world to watch you make mistakes, then you've appropriately used the medium.
However, I just typed this up in five minutes. Didn't proof read or anything. So, if anyone would like to share with me any mistakes I've made then by all means, have at it.

I am not in the most chipper mood today, so this may be a little more mean spirited than I usually am, but that was rather unfair and mean spirited with reguards to "all the stuff" (as he put it) from denton being "kind of blasé", insinuating that his band is the only good one.
That is a big statement reaching across a lot of bands (including other bands on thier bill for their show) and insulting them. As a fan of a lot of music I have heard out of denton, it is a direct assult on my taste. I listened to thier tracks on Myspace, and it did not suck. Did nit overly impress me, but it did not suck. High dollar whore, imagined it was the background music from a club scene of a modrn vampire movie (not realy an insult), and Harvest ball, sounded like a dorm formed bands cover of Reverand Glasseye song(again not realy an insult. o.k.kinda, but I do love me some Glasseye).
Main point if I can find it is, I listened to their music AFTER I read the comments in the interview. I was alredy kind of turned off before even got a chance to hear them and I am not likely to to be much of a supporter of them or their music. I doubt this will break the band or their hearts, but there it is.
I preffer when a band/musician defines themslves by what THEY ARE, not what they think OTHERS ARE NOT.

to 3:09:
just b/c you are involved in a bunch of shit, does not warrant 'credit'. Credit as in another shitty band that will change the name when people get sick of hearing about it.

How arrogant to book your band and then yourself to dj? It's like if scott booked Record sHop to headline then ashlee and him djed before hand.

Why do bad things like this happen?
A: because no one wanted to be on that bill. FRENZ sucks so does oreos on strife.

I fucking hate TJ. What an ignorant douche with no formal musical training what-so-ever(not that you have to, but SHIT!). hates everything thats not shitty indie (indie is not shitty, but most of what TJ likes is). what you dont know about music could. Fuck what you think art SHOULD be. You go to UNT for christsake! Easily one of the greatest music schools in the US. why couldnt you learn anything from the vast body of knowledge that was at your finger tips? SHIT man. Humility does not become you. go read a book and flunk a test!
