Too much going on. More quantity than quality description wise. We'll add and correct as needs be, just let us know.
Cancelled: Trail Of Dead at Rubber Gloves on Friday.
Hot Flash with Special Guest Faux Fox (Fallout Lounge): It will definitely be cool to see Faux Fox at The Fallout Lounge, a place that doesn't often host live bands. It would be even better if they made a habit out of it. Throw in Killtronix and Schwa from Hot Flash and this will definitely be a crowded night in Expo Park. Event is free before 10 PM. $3 after.
The Melissas Deluxe Disco Hell with Life Death Continuum/Magic Fly/DJ Jeremy Jackson (The Cavern): The Melissas have impressed us in the past by booking Eat Avery's Bones and Farah at past shows. They continue their exercise in good taste with Life Death Continuum tonight, one of the area's best new bands. Update: Looks like Nature got added, so even better.
Danny Garcia/The Grass Fight/The Felons (Hailey's)
Halloween House Show with The Uptown Bums/The Go-To Guys/The Currents (915 W. Collins St. in Denton)
The Flametrick Subs/Ten Benson (Double Wide)
Ellen Fullman/Susan Alcorn(Will Rogers Memorial Center): A very unique musician who's treating us with repeat performances in Fort Worth this weekend. Modern composer Ellen Fullman gained notoriety as the inventor of the intimidating yet innovative Long String Instrument. This massive instrument/installation requires the performer to rosin their hands and walk the length of the 300 foot long instrument to play it. She has also collaborated with Kronos Quartet. She'll be accompanied by experimental pedal steel player Susan Alcorn, who some of you might remember from the Jandek show this past summer. Show starts at 8. Second show on Saturday at 8 PM. Last show Sunday at 2 PM. Show is $20.
Terror Vision (Strawberry Fields at the corner of Oak and Bonnie Brae in Denton): This is the last weekend Strawberry Fields will be having their BYOB Horror movie event and tonight's featured films are Posession and Return Of The Living Dead. Starts at 8 PM.
King Harvest Folk Festival (J & J's Pizza): This is a pretty self explanatory lineup and concept. Kind of like a hippied-out version of last year's Halloween show "Our Band Could Be Your Life." That show had Dave Virden as host and he put this event together as well as kicks it off. Money and/or donations go to Daily Bread Soup Kitchen.
8:00 Dave Virden (Admiral David V.)-Nick Drake
8:40 Will E. Lee-Nick Cave
9:20 Chris Garver-Bob Dylan
10:00 Emil Rapstine-Phil Ochs
10:40 Aaron White-Gram Parsons
11:20 Warren Jackson Hearne-Leonard Cohen
White Drugs/Tober Omi/The Happy Bullets/M (4100 Main @ Haskell): Show at 9pm. $3 to get in.
We Made Out Once Halloween Party with DJ Nature (Hailey's): Make sure not to look like a dumbass in your Halloween costume, because the chances of you having an unflattering picture taken at this event is about a hundred percent.
Blood Fest with Tolar/Kill The Client/Vorvadoss/Resigned To Fate...more (Red Blood Club): All day show featuring DFW's hardcore elite. Show Starts at 4 PM.
King Harvest Folk Festival (J & J's Pizza): Second night of the festival.

8:40 Daniel Folmer-Townes Van Zandt
9:20 George Neal-Syd Barrett
10:00 Will Kapinos (Jetscreamer) - Willie Nelson

11:20 Brent Best (Drams) - Roky Erickson
TXMF Showcase featuring Ashley Cromeens/Pinebox Serenade/George Neal Band/Raised By Tigers/Spitfire Tumbleweeds (Dan's Silver Leaf): Good lineup from this increasingly diverse local label. Good chance to see how good Ashley Cromeens is, even solo.
Redemer/Mag/Animal Forces (House Of Tinnitus): This show was added at the last minute and features Chicago's Redemer, who I saw described as "glam" somewhere. Maybe that's in their live show, because their song samples were some of the most disturbing wailing din that I've heard on a Myspace page recently. Hope to make it to this. UPDATE: Denton's Animal Forces has been added to the bill. More TBA.
