It List: Wednesday
The Scoop (Fallout Lounge): This is a new weekly hip hop event at Fallout Lounge. Our own Sally Glass just returned from Israel, so you should take a second to say "hi" or pose for a picture since she's nice and doesn't hate you like we do.
Taxi Fare (Zubar): On a somewhat related note Central Booking has a good interview and at least one exclusive track with Philly's Dev 79 on their blog. He'll be joining them at their Melodica showcase on Friday. The Party will also be playing the Gorilla VS Booze II day show at SXSW on Wednesday, March 16th. That's right, Wednesday.
"Semi Pro" Slam Drunk Party with It's What We Get/Bangs (Hailey's): This is an event to promote the new Will Ferrell movie, "Semi Pro." Retro attire is encouraged (isn't it always?) and there will be both slam dunk and dribble contests. I'd pay cash money to see an anemic hipster slam dunk a basketball at Hailey's, but luckily it's free for 18 and up. Presented by Gordon And The Whale. Man, those guys score some crazy interviews. You know, with actual stars. We can't even get a trust fund alcoholic in some indie rock band to write us back sometimes.
ADD: Transmography at Art Club.
