It List: Wednesday

Usual good stuff happening tonight, including Taxi Fare at Zubar and It's What We Get at Hailey's. Also:

Matthew and the Arrogant Sea/ A Childlike Fear/Tavo Carbone/S Rich and the K.N.O. (Club Dada): MATAS play a somewhat rare Dallas show, joined by locals A Childlike Fear and Brooklyn's Tavo Carbone, a singer/songwriter and backing band combo who should probably be commended for not being hipsters, if nothing else. Carbone writes these cutesy, Library of Congress sounding folkpop songs that could easily be much much worse than they are. Not my thing, but certainly not bad. S. Rich could probably be described in pretty much the same way. If you enjoy quiet, sing songy folk, you could do a lot worse, and KNO singer Sam Rich has the best voice of all the vocalists at this show. Local music boosters can rest assured that MATAS is the best of the bunch here though, an A Childlike Fear is probably right behind them. I usually don't enjoy seeing this kind of music performed live, but that doesn't mean there isn't some quality in there.

MATAS is one of the best bands in this area. A Childlike Fear are horrible people. None of these bands are "folk" or "music". Race And Comedy Are Seperate Thanks.
