It List: Thursday

Stereo on Strike Presents Lost Generation (Fallout): I had the chance to check out another Lost Generation a couple weeks ago, and it's clear that Wanz has become a much improved DJ with an impressive collection of new dance records. Too bad no one shows up to this, because honestly, dance nights are a pretty big let down when the crowd consists of three dudes watching Family Guy. The same night I saw Wanz, I was also coerced into stopping by Meridian Room for karaoke, and man am I glad that no one I know goes there on Thursdays anymore. I used to think it was a shitty time even when my friends were singing, but I've rarely in my life encountered as many alternabros as I did the other week at Meridian. Yuck. Have you seen the blazers these shitbags wear?

How Hard/Kaboom/Will Frenkel (Rubber Gloves): I remember seeing Kaboom at SHQ one time and watching lead singer Brad Santulli scare the crap out of way bigger dudes, one of which included a friend of mine who actually ran away from him. Thats pretty cool. I don't know a great deal about headliners How Hard, but they seem to play fairly straight forward hardcore inspired rock that certainly isn't bad in any way.

Treasure Mammal/The Freek Out/Karaoke (Radio UTD event at UTD campus): This thing is free and I'm almost positive that it starts at 8pm. Phoenix's Treasure Mammal is a fairly entertaining lo fi synth pop outfit that seem to fall somewhere between Mahjongg and Chromeo with a goofy emphasis on slop and songs that aren't as fully realized as those from the aforementioned groups. Probably a fun live show.

I'd really like to see a chill electronic night. I don't want to dance when I'm out. Actually, that could be a good thing for fallout lounge. Emphasis on the "lounge" part.

Thanks.

This'll probably be the last time to see How Hard in a long time. They're moving far far away on Saturday
