It List: Tuesday


Man Man/Yeasayer (The Loft): At their best Man Man displays some of the caffeine buzz quirk of stuff from the Belgian label Crammed in its heyday. When they slow it down a little, the vocals are given a little too much room and they tend to bog everything down with a Tom Waits-like sort of dirge approach that isn't as appealing. Apparently, their energetic live shows put all doubts to rest, though I'm tired of hearing that as an excuse for a band's lesser material. Yeasayer's wispy brand of Prog (tracks such as "2080") is occasionally laced with sassy, lily-white 80's vocals. Sometimes the music is expansive and moody enough to remind one of Pink Floyd's Meddle, but I once read that about a couple of tracks on Superunknown, so there you go.

Steve Earle/Allison Moorer (Lakewood Theater): Steve Earle is respectable enough, cusses in his songs, hates the death penalty, and rarely offends me when people twice my age put it on, which I can't say for most of this genre of songwriting. His legendary shot at Dwight Yoakam, where he allegedly scrawled "Dwight Yoakam Eats Sushi" into a Nashville record company's elevator is also pretty cool and you have to love taking that anonymous commenting to the next level, no pun intended. There's something very DFW about sushi eating cowboys, but I'll be nice today and not name any here. Show at 7 PM.

Occam's Razor/Har Herrar/Ippur (1919 Hemphill)

Joe Jackson/Mutlu (Palladium): Man, people love Joe Jackson. Does he have one solid album? You know how SR knows everything about music and tries to big-time all of us constantly? Yeah, well the truth is he listens to nothing but Joe Jackson around WSJR HQ. Drives me nuts.

Disqo Disco (Fallout Lounge): Disqo Disco will be on their own tonight and guest-free. I'm sure it will be just as good, but I do hope they have Tommyboy back again.

Steve Earle's version of "the Wire" theme song was my least favorite, but he's still kinda cool.

a girl once proposed marriage to me in elementary school and the only leg she had to stand on was that steve earle was her "uncle."
and that she could recite jurassic park verbatim from memory without any form of visual cue.
