It List: Thursday

Sorry, had to be a little short today:

Quick Next Big Thing with Polyphonic Spree/Record Hop/PPT/Ghosthustler/The Party (Palladium): Quick will be throwing their big free party tonight in celebration of their Next Big Thing local music awards, which turned out much better than most people probably would have expected. With a list of nominees that includes the Great Tyrant, Ghosthustler, Shane English, Lil Wil, Koji Kondo, Record Hop, Angry Businessmen, Tree Wave, Fight Bite, Matthew and the Arrogant Sea, and Farah, it feels like the first local music awards show in years (aside from our show last year, duh) that actually has a little bit of relevance to music that actually matters. We like to bag on the local MSM more than just about anyone else, but I have to say that Hunter Hauk and company probably handled this process as well as they could have. PS, this is a free show, and although there are "tickets" of some kind, I would expect that you could just show up without one and get in just fine.

Elf Power/Calhoun/Telegraph Canyon (8.0, Ft. Worth): Second generation Elephant 6 band comes to Ft. Worth tonight. I used to really dig them several years ago, but I just couldn't get in to Back to the Web, their most recent release (they have one coming out this year as well). Definitely more tolerable than most of the rest of the E6 stuff.

Blacklisted/Hands of the Few/HighLife/Power Trip (Red Blood Club)

Delmore Pilcrow/Khemo Rabbit/Street Hassle/Bad Taste (Rubber Gloves): Solid line up for the CD release party for Chris Garver's band, Delmore Pilcrow. I'd be especially curious to see what Bad Taste has been up to recently.

Van Halen (American Airlines Center)

We Luv Techno (Fallout Lounge): Wanz and Ineka will be joined by Maetrik tonight.

Summer Smackdown Movie Night (House of Dang): Starting at 830, House of Dang, in conjunction with the neighboring And/Or Gallery, will host a free screening of Showgirls. They will also force those in attendance to play some sort of Showgirls drinking game, and God knows what that entails. It's free and BYOB.

maybe mr.DISD works for DISD? I dunno.

Being a teacher seems like its a good idea for people who want to have a job AND be in bands. You'd have (most) weekends off, and (most) of the summer off to tour. Seems like a good idea to me.

Quick Awards last night fucking sucked. who gives a fuck about some old country bands?


Free food? you mean, like two trays of sushi that got ate in like a second. Free beers! but your charging for sodas?

Was the sound guy all thumbs? Fucking reknob couldn't turn the mics on. (especially at the beginning of Record Hop's set. What the hell was that?)

Don't get me started on the person running the cameras... auto-focus.. ahh...

Every person working any form of security in that place was a total douche- and had no idea what was even going on.

Mount Righteous was amazing.. if you didn't catch them.. then it wasn't even really worth the long lines and irritating plastic looking bitches that were trying to get as much free shit as they could.
