It List: Wednesday

Of course we have the regular activites this evening (It's What We Get at Hailey's and Taxi Fare at Zubar), but for something a little different, you might want to check out Fall in Love at Fallout, a pre-Valentine's Day event hosted by Circa 77 and featuring That's Whats Hot, a DJ I wasn't too familiar with until a couple weeks ago. If you check the Myspace page, you'll hear a brief yet excellent mix of Italo synth pop, classic house, and hints of sexy disco that will surely fit the mood of the evening. Anyone into Lindstrom or the Italians Do it Better roster will probably really dig it. Anyway, the organizers tell me they'll be giving away an all local compilation CD as well as a bunch of other stuff, so drop by. It's free, after all. Hopefully, Christmas bow tie dude will show up again.

A LITTLE OFF SUBJECT BUT.....

OKAY, HERE'S THE DEAL: GET YOUR LAZY HIPSTER ASSES OVER TO GOOD RECORDS AND BUY A 4-DAY MELODICA FESTIVAL PASS. IT'S $25 BUCKS. THAT IS WHAT YOU PROBABLY SPEND ON HAIR PRODUCT OR 3 DRINKS AT ZUBAR OR WHEREVER THE HELL IT IS YOU HANG OUT. 25 BUCKS FOR OVER 80 PERFORMANCES IS A FUCKING BARGAIN BY ANY STANDARD. THAT'S LIKE PENNIES PER SHOW. THIS IS OUR CHANCE TO SHOW THE WORLD THAT DALLAS DOESN'T SUCK AS BAD AS EVERYBODY THINKS WE DO. IT WILL BRING ATTENTION TO THIS TOWN AS A VIABLE PLACE FOR ALL THOSE ULTRA-HIP BANDS THAT NEVER PLAY HERE TO REALIZE THAT DALLAS IS A VIABLE TOWN TO STOP BY AND PLAY ON THEIR WAY TO GAY, OVERCROWDED, STUPID AUSTIN. SO STOP BITCHING AND DO SOMETHING REAL FOR ONCE IN YOUR LAZY, HIPSTER LIFE. INSTEAD OF WASTING YOUR TIME HARPING LIKE BABIES IN THE COMMENTS SECTION OF WESHOTJR AND ALL THOSE OTHER SAFE, ANONYMOUS FORUMS TAKE REAL ACTION! IF YOU WANT TO SUPPORT LOCAL VENUES AND HELP KEEP THEM OPEN (Sloppyworld could use the help btw). BE A REAL MUSIC LOVER AND JUST FUCKING DO IT! CAN'T WAIT TO SEE YOU OUT NEXT WEEKEND FOR THE BEST MUSIC FESTIVAL DALLAS HAS EVER SEEN!!!
THANKS,
-JOHN FREEMAN
owner, booking agent for SLOPPYWORLD: the coolest money pit in Dallas.

PS-Excuse the bitchy tone, I haven't had my morning Dr. Pepper yet.

Hey James? This is not the right comment section for you to be all rational and shit, okay? We operate on a surface level only. If a dude would rather be unique, fun, and spirited than wonder what is cool, it is our right ot tear him apart. I'ma cap the next mofo I see dress up for a sweet party. Remember: For we whot jr comment people, irony will always > fun. You can tell just by looking at that guy that he has a life. Not. Cool.

initially, i thought melodica might be a good idea. then came the streaming shit of sellout consciousness that followed. if we buy tickets, we buy them. if your dreams rot in purgatory, then swallow and shut the fuck up, please..................

if you don't like the idea of melodica, you don't like the idea of good music in dallas. and if that's the case, shut the fuck up and get out of the way. some of us are trying to do something positive with the talent we've got, and there is a lot more here than assclowns like you give the dfw area credit for.

just for curiosity's sake, sellout how?

Heh...I hope people buy more wristbands because this is a good-hearted event trying to spread the good word that Dallas is actually conscious and can put something with soul together on a large scale representing all kinds of different music from the same geographical location, while adding a couple of free agents from outside the fold to bring home the championship. This is money and I can't wait.

I'm hoping the sellout post dude was kidding, because if not, its too dumb to even warrant a response.

Sellout consciousness hahaha

who are these people

kids, all you have to do to raise $25 is sell 5 hits of fake acid at a dance club and you're set. It's just that easy. That's what I used to do when I couldn't afford tickets to see Mudhoney.
Just a suggestion...

nowadays, you can just sell an aspirin as a tab of x. $25 in one quick sale, and then duck out of the club before they figure it out.

if you haven't noticed, dallas is pretty good about forcing non-commercial creativity and culture out of itself. as a result, there is not a significant musical culture that is affecting the nation or the world coming out of dallas, save for its rap community. why not try to make the electronic music community improve to that level as well? we who produce electronic music would like a more seasoned audience and more discerning ears, as well as just a greater appreciation for the art itself, and melodica is part of our attempt to encourage that.
