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.
