It List: Thursday

This guy's a Knight. Look it up.

Nick Lowe/Ron Sexsmith (Sons Of Hermann Hall): Two veteran songwriters at the Sons tonight, with the kind of ticket price that will make you pay for "experience." Both are respectable enough, however, and "Cruel To Be Kind" is one of my mom's all time faves.

Ministry / Meshuggah/Hemlock Palladium: For as long as I can remember, I have never liked Ministry. Not the syrupy synth early years, not the industrial pop, and certainly not whatever you call their current music. They have had some respectable collaborators, some great drummers etc. but there is something about it. I'm still waiting to find out I've been missing the boat on this for decades, and I'm willing to give it one more chance. Help me out?

Lost Generation (Fallout Lounge):
Wanz will be playing an extended version of his Blixaboy performance from last night's Dub Assembly.

Admiral David V./Mauve X/Will E. Lee/Charles Marley (Rubber Gloves):
Mostly singer-songwriters here, but this is a much more rough-around-the-edges gang of artists than that title would have you believe and the night should be all the better for it. I'm hoping that Will E. Lee plays something off of his long in the making punk concept album under the name Psychic Rattlers, a band that finds Lee fronting 2/3 of Burnt Sienna Trio as his rhythm section. The new music on that page are an intriguing glimpse into another aspect of Lee as a songwriter, particularly on tracks like "Gila Monster." Looking forward to a proper release.

Dimitri From Paris (Ghostbar): French House pioneer that received the honor of "Knight Of Letters and Arts" from the French government. Man, you can really get away with murder in Europe.

I loved Ministry back in the day. I normally would not be so bummed that I have to miss this show, but apparently this is the last . They brought the chainlink fence back for this tour. I remeber leaping of that fence into the moshpit when I was in high school. awesome shit.
