It List: Wednesday

We're in the middle of working on a bunch of year end stuff for the blog, so you have plenty to look forward to if you enjoy reading blog posts that make you question your own self worth. Shows tonight:

Bloggers Gordon and the Whale will be hosting a free screening of the film Walk Hard at Movie Tavern in Denton this evening at 730. Despite the fact that its free, you DO have to score a pass to the film (the bros tell me that you can pick them up at Movie Tavern or from one of them if you see them in the flesh), and you should get there early to save a seat, since not all with passes are guaranteed admission. Oh, they'll have $1.50 domestic beer for you as well, which is pretty sweet.

Duran Duran is playing at Nokia this evening as the headliner for the Mix 102.9 holiday something or other party. I don't know if they have a Myspace page, but I refuse to link to it because they're better than that. Most underrated bass lines of all time. Duh.

Also, Taxi Fare at Zubar like usual and It's What We Get at Hailey's.

And finally, if you're one of those people who acts really happy all the time in order to hide the fact that you're a drug addict, you might want to check out Femme Fatality's predictably tongue in cheek synth pop at Rubber Gloves tonight. Listening to the songs on their Myspace page made me feel like a copy of Vice Magazine from 2002 had suddenly come to life and puked all over me. Girlsrisewithheat and Sticky Buns will be joining them as well.

Can anyone tell me what happened to the corner of Haskell and Bryan? I leave a few weeks on tour, I come back and And/Or Gallery is a dry cleaners, House of Dang looks like its going to be some little mini mart thing with dry cereal in the windows, and the hair dresser place next to all of em is a florist. What happened to my street?

Rule: If you like an independently ran place/space/eatery, someone will turn it into one of the following:
cvs, dry cleaner, nail salon.
