Weekender

Sorry cuties, we gotta give you a slimmed down list this week, but give us a break. We've done a lot in the past few days, and theres more to come next week:

FRIDAY

Rosemary Malign/Steel Hook Prostheses/Concrete Violin/Werewolf Jerusalem/Aphonic Curtains (House of Tinnitus): Another wildly disturbing House of Tinnitus show might be exactly what the doctor ordered for me this evening. Headliner Rosemary Malign's music is particularly dark and rough, even for H.O.T., utilizing what sound like found vocal audio clips with an overwhelming mixture of stop/start fuzz, feedback and the kind of electronic sounds that might call to mind the sounds two cars make in a head on collision-- truly an angry collage of abstract violence. Concrete Violin appears to be another highlight here, with a slightly more subdued yet equally interesting approach. We also heard a rumor that Akkolyte was playing, but we aren't sure-- can someone confirm or deny this?

Les Savy Fav/Fatal Flying Guilloteens/Mom (the Loft): I'm not really that big of a Les Savy Fav guy. They're one of those bands that is loved by a lot of people I respect, but every time I hear them, I just fail to see what the big deal is. But people who dig them can't seem to shut up about how good their live shows are, so if you like these guys, it will probably be well worth it for you.

Florene/Peel/ A Childlike Fear (3114 Swiss Ave): These Swiss Ave. house shows have become quite popular in Dallas, a town that desperately needs more shows in places that aren't lame bars. And thats a good thing. The line up tonight includes Austin's surprisingly solid indie pop outfit Peel, who will bring some rock to an otherwise mellow line up. Usually starts around 10, picks up at midnight and goes till well past two. Pretty much always a good time no matter who is playing. BYOB $5.

Poison the Well/The Locust/Dance Gavin Dance/A Girl A Gun and A Ghost (the Door): Yeah, I know. The Door. No smoking and energy drinks and the worst kind of covert Christian crusading masking itself as some form of "counterculture." Gross. But the Locust is playing there, so it might be worth mentioning, even if I would have a real problem giving this place one dime. Actually, seeing those dudes play a Christian venue could end up being more than entertaining unless they end up pulling a Jesus coup like Insane Clown Posse or something.... I've never seen them live, but I'm sure its great.

Big J will be having his birthday party at the Cavern tonight featuring an MC battle of some kind. Sorry, don't have any more details on this.

Criminal Damage/ANS/Wax Museums/Just Another Consumer/Stymie (Red Blood Club)


SATURDAY

Laptop Deathmatch (Sloppyworld): Laptop Deathmatch returns with a lot its regulars to Sloppyworld, which is honestly becoming one of the better places to see a show in Dallas: very solid sound, nice stage, relaxed atmosphere, good crowds and BYOB. Hint hint Dallas... people will get into these kinds of places if you do it right.

Backsliders/Dragna/RTB2 and more (Bar of Soap): Bar of Soap reminds me of that bar in the movie Tombstone. You know, the one that is so rough and tough and filled with Billy Bob Thornton's beard that even the regular cowboys won't drop in. But aside from its bad rep, Bar of Soap isn't that terrible (the air hockey rules) sometimes. Anyway, they are apparently holding this all day fest to help save the place from financial problems, although I'm not clear as to what the problems are, exactly, or what they need to solve them. Starts at 330pm and goes all day and night... I'd give you the full line up, but I want to go home and I don't really care. Thanks!

SUNDAY

I would like to see Locust but it would be paying to get in, and sweating it out with nu metal emo kids half your age and listening to those same kids play for a 2 second locust performance, I\'ll wait till they play rubber gloves again.

akkolyte is not playing house of tinnitus tonight, though i, a member of said band, am-with aphonic curtains. the other member, stefan, is playing tonight at red blood club with just another consumer. so that means all you lovely kids will have to choose which gonzalez you love more tonight; though it probably will be more a decision like dallas or denton? anarcho-punk or noise? (though i don't draw such boring distinctions) either way, my parents sperms and eggs will be making obnoxious sounds all over this god forsaken metroplex.....

12:00 here. I am actually sorry for my tone on that comment. I don\'t mean it, and I was projecting my anger. The times I have been to HOT have been great, and I regret letting the actions of a couple of people who are not even on this blog make me lash out. I\'ve never met them, but the people that run that record label and that house (they are related right?) seem like decent people when I see them represent on the net. At least somebody is trying to do something, and I\'m glad it\'s finally catching on in Dallas too with the sloppyworld and swiss shows. i suck i know.

actually paperstain has nothing to do with the House of Tinnitus, and those bands have rarely played HOT.

Les Savy Fav did not dissapoint. They played a rockin set complete with hijinks and a cover of the Pixies\' Debaser. Fatal Flying Guilloteens closed with a Jesus Lizard song, I think it was Gladiator, and the singer was stumbling around like a drunk David Yow.

And what makes Locust irrelevant, if you like them they are relevant, if you don\'t you dont have to listen.

True 7:58, 8:37, and 8:53.

Art is people learning about life and rubbing shoulders with others, all the while living and learning from what others have to say. When and where your shoulders are rubbed by other shoulders is not so relevant. This is known as UNDERSTANDING.

6:53 said that people who still find Locust relevant are funny. I\'m saying that it\'s bullshit to tell anyone their opinion is not relevant. It\'s always relevant because this person is alive. People learn about life and interpret life how they feel. One person exists and learns and spits out how they feel. Person B experiences what said person spits out and incorporates this into their life. All knowledge of life. When and where your shoulders rub with other shoulders does not fuckin matter. As long as you are rubbin shoulders. Dig? It\'s all about constant motion. It is NOT about discarding people as \"funny\" just because you\'ve gotten something out of The Locust and regurgitated it into a bullshit post on a blog.
