It List: Wednesday

FYI-- In case you didn't notice, we now have our archives up and running, so feel free to go back and talk shit about people on some of the older posts! Shows:
It's What We Get (Hailey's)

Taxi Fare (Zubar)

Dead Kenny Gs/Yells at Eels/Chameleon Chamber Group/Future Soul Soundclash (Club Dada): Yells at Eels will be joined by Jon Teague of the Great Tyrant on drums (Stefan Gonzalez could not play this evening), and the band will do an all improv set. Must be nice to be able to substitute one of the best drummers in the area with another one of the best drummers in the area. Strange line up for sure. Chameleon Chamber Group consists of Paul Slavens and a couple different members of Polyphonic Spree, mkay?

The Dirtbombs/Kelley Stoltz (Cambridge Room, House of Blues): Dirtbombs frontman Mick Collins is often credited with being one of the main sources of inspiration behind the late 90's/early 00's garage rock revival in Detroit that spawned the White Stripes, among others, and he's had at least something of a hand in the more recent garage rock rising a la a split record with King Khan and his Shrines a few years ago. Anyway, the guy has been a force in this type of music for a few decades now, and The Dirtbombs, known for some great lives shows, are his most well known project. So considering the Black Lips/King Khan invasion of 2007, are we looking at a new Garage Rock revival every six or seven years or something? PS-- I really wish this show was at like Red Blood Club or something instead of House of Blues. Total buzzkill, brah.

Strawberry Fields Presents Short Attention Span Theater (Rubber Gloves): Tonight the Strawberry Fields crew will be doing a Youtube you call it, taking video requests all evening from whoever shows up. Despite the simplicity of this concept, watching people's random music video selections can actually be pretty fun... I tried this at a party once and it was a real hit. Just hope that the right people show up.

I did a similar party last night, except in my case it was youporn, not youtube. And "the right people" was actually "my right hand."

Perfect! Videos of stupid members of any species is always great.

If anyone wants to get request in early you can send them to the Fields myspace page but be sure to put "youtube request" as the subject and not "my band wants to play your store" or it will get deleted. LOLJK guyz!

Bitchney Queers...while the local bands you mention are great in their own right I have to wonder what relevance they have to the post.

Yeah, I couldn't tell if they were saying "If you like the Dirtbombs, check these bands out for the same stuff on a local level" or "These bands wish they could pull off what the Dirtbombs do". The last Falkon show I saw when the band was in garage mode was pretty damn exciting.

Mick Collins is a great singer. For a Denton/Dallas tie-in check out Blacktop, in which he played guitar and sang. Darin Lin Wood and Janet Walker of Fireworks played guitar and drums respectively. Alex Cuervo played bass. He's now in the Hex Dispensers. They recorded "I've Got a Baaad Feelin' About This..." with Brutal Juice bassist, Sam McCall, at his home studio in Denton. It's a great record.

Bitchney Queers says "You really need to get off your parents couch and find a job. Go get dick or pussy. Do something besides sitting on your ass blogging a bunch of bullshit."

krakhaus says "Bitchney Queers...while the local bands you mention are great(The Falkon, The Black Arm band)in their own right I have to wonder what relevance they have to the post."

Bitchney Queers says--1.This post assumes you may not know the Dirtbombs. 2.This post mentions the garage rock bands influenced by the Dirtbombs. 3.krakhaus, if you think those bands are great and actually saw their shows then you do know those bands are relevant to this post. You just want to be shitty, I guess.

Hell yeah, those bands WERE fuckin' great. Sorry, but those bands are no longer. You can hear them, but you can't see them and you would have to see them to know what I mean. Yeah, Wanz and his band used to pull some crazy shit.

I don't WANT to be shitty I just AM shitty!

I meant no offense dear Bitchney, and I've been a big fan of most of Mick Collin's projects over the years, but I still fail to see anything but a superficial relationship between Falkon/Black Arm Band and the Dirtbombs . Garage bands fronted by African-Americans?(Gasp!) Listen with your eyes closed and we'll talk...

I have nothing to do with this post outside of being a really big Mick collins fan. Leave me out of this. I'll keep laying low if you leave me ALONE.

krakhaus, you have every right to be as shitty as you wanna be if that is what you wanna be today. Actually, I think that it is well known that girls like me think with their pussy so it really doesn't matter how I listen to music...but in this case I am still gonna have to disagree with you. We are splitting hairs here. The post was talking influence not color.

I get it.

I honor your opinion Bitchney!

Honestly though...I didn't know if you were a female(sexual-preference unknown) or a male homosexual with that "handle" of yours.

And my opinion is that Wanz heard plenty of noisy, "garage" music years before he ever heard a Dirtbomb, Gorie, or what-have-you.

Wow! You guys are so warm and welcoming to new-comers....reminds me of what's great about Dallas. I didn't intentionally do it, and I'm very sorry to ruin the party for the "cool kids".

Aren't you supposed to be out buying Ironic T-Shirts anyway?
