Weekender

Yes, the picture to the right doesn't really have anything to do with this weekend(er), but I think it's one of the best pictures from last Friday's Silver Apples performance that I've seen so far, and I thought I'd share it with you. If you want to see more like this, check Sally Glass' latest stuff in our photo section. Anyway, here are some shows for you (and we'll get back to more detailed, well written weekenders once we're done planning 8 million shows after sxsw):

FRIDAY

Send Help/ Monocles/ Brick Fight/ Koji Kondo (Exploding House, 711 Page St., Ft. Worth): Starting at 8pm with a five dollar cover, this is a new DIY/houseshow space in Ft. Worth occupied by Koji Kondo and some of their associates. Should be a really fun show in place that will hoepfully start doing this regularly.

Jucifer/The Monarch/Silene (Rubber Gloves)
The Party (Zubar)

Leslie and the Lys/ MC Router/ Sticky Buns (Hailey's)

SATURDAY

Built to Spill /Meat Puppets /Helvetia (Ridglea Theater)

Texas Noise Fest feat. Rosemary Malign/ Steel Hook Prostheses/ GOAT/ Morbid Anal Fog/ Awen/ Aphonic Curtains/ 2 Headed Cat vs. Unicorn Octopus/ DJ Per (Red Blood Club): Although its unusual to see some of these bands playing somewhere that isn't called House of Tinnitus, Red Blood Club seems like the perfect home away from home. Obviously, this harsh noise line up will either be loved or hated by the vast majority of people, but no matter what your opinion of harsh drone and experimental noise electronic, you have to admit that this mini fest will be by far one of the most adventurous musical events to have ocurred in the cultural wasteland of Deep Ellum in a long time.

J Gray/ Corey Derden/ Emil Rapstine/ Heartstring Stranglers/ Sarah Jaffe / Verulf/ Bryce Isbell/ Zanzibar Snails/ Uptown Bums/ Matthew and the Arrogant Sea/ Florene/ The Frenz (Strawberry Fields): A huge line up at Strawberry fields that begins with J Gray at 5pm and continues on in the order listed here until roughly midnight. Zanzibar Snails will be celebrating the release of their latest, The Brown Dwarf CDr, and you'll also get a chance to hear the excellent Verulf, along with J Gray and Bryce Isbell, both of whom have recently released full length albums that you might be interested in checking out.
Resigned to Fate/Vorvadoss/Rageous Brothers (Xtreme Dudes Manor, 1119 Frame St. Denton): $3 holla, starts at 7. "Holla" isn't very cool when I say it, is it?

Record Hop/Swedish Teens/American Werewolf Academy (Rubber Gloves)

Hot Flash (Fallout Lounge)

Pleasant Grove/ Stumptone/ Crushed Stars (Doublewide)

SUNDAY


Tatsuya Nakatani (Kettle Art, 7pm): Austin saxophonist Carl Smith, guitarist Kenny Withrow and the Gonzalez brothers (Aaron and Stefan) will join percussionist Tatsuya Nakatani at this show, which goes from 7 to 10 pm. We're really looking forward to this one.

Slutbanger has gone off the grid.
Now Eco-friendly.
The only carbon-footprint (a concept I reject for it's economization of complex phenomena that should be understood in their specificity rather than a single dimension that could trade off with some other possible activity) is cigarette smoke which is filtered by the house itself.

You need more God in your lives and less You. Don't you feel really egotistical, getting on here all the time to push your lives in everybody's face? It is really gross to watch. Doesn't it make you feel spiritually empty to have, at the end of a long day, devoted all of you time and energy to something called Lickity Splits? God will always be there for you. Lickity Splits won't.

Two problems with the above comment:

1. Don't you feel equally bad pushing the concept of "God" on people who don't necessarily share your views?

2. Why is there a problem with promoting what you do as a musician/artist? Even just spiritually speaking, there is something to be said for the connection and interaction of artist and audience, so why is there a problem with an artist letting their potential audience know an event is happening?

The emptiness that you personally feel, and fill with "God", is filled by others with art; some don't experience this void at all, and have no spiritual need for either.

In your case though, 4:23, you need to listen closer to God - he's asking you to blow him again, and mind the stepchildren this time around.
