It List: Wednesday

Prize Country/Sirhan Sirhan/Rocket for Ethiopia/Blank Blank/Drink To Victory (1919 Hemphill): Ha. The first band I checked out in this line up was Sirhan Sirhan, and they instantly reminded me of a slightly updated version of some long lost 90's post-grunge indie band that I can't even name. Seriously, they sound like one of those groups that got a one album major label deal in 94 and were included in one of those old CMJ compilation CDs that came with the magazine every month. The fact that it was actually cool to hear something like that makes me think I'm dumb. But I can pretend. Headliners Prize Country are sort of similar-- they sound like aggro 90's rock along the lines of Quicksand or Shudder to Think or some riff heavy Chicago band. A pretty cool line up that has my brain firing in directions it hasn't gone in years. Those with DFW pride will be happy to know that locals Drink to Victory are probably still the best band at 1919 tonight.

Etta James/The Tyler Dow Bryant Band (House Of Blues)

Lover/The Black and Whites/Wax Museums (Club Dada): Lover are a surprisingly likeable, poppy three chord punk group that seem so to be inspired by the Buzzcocks and Ramones punk lineage-- for more recent stylistic comparisons, look to groups like Exploding Hearts and the Figurines. Locals Wax Museums might still be the highlight of this show, however.

Taxi Fare (Zubar)

It's What We Get (Hailey's): Great line up tonight with guests Keith P and Disqo Disco.
The Scoop (Fallout Lounge)

I simply don't think We Shot JR is healthy for the d/fw scene. I think it makes us look ugly. I urge you to stop writing this hateful, ugly shit. Pleeeease!!! Do yourselves and everyone else a huge favor and just stop this shit, now. Please. Please. I am fucking serious. Just stop. Love is the only answer. Love. You remember that word, right? You know for damn sure that this just helps spread meanness. It is just making it super easy for everyone to be cruel to each other without any repercussions. Yeah, I know....you get into shows for free and everyone who knows your true identity loves you for being friends with beach house. Yeah, you're the vice magazine of north texas. Congratulations! Well is it worth your soul? Is it worth trading in your pink heart for a black one? Just stop it, now. I'm saying this because i care. Please stop. Thank you very much.

The weak will and lack of self control you're projecting is an insult to your peers. So because people have a tendency towards occasional cruelty, then a forum for people to be honest should be completely dismantled? Saying that we've made it easy for people to be mean is giving us too much credit. We can't force anyone to behave in a particular manner and even though there are days when I disagree with almost every comment left here, I can respect the fact that someone felt compelled to say something. I am silently pleased when I see "Fuck Off" spray-painted on the sloped wall of a drainage ditch, so keep that in mind.

We're nice enough, but we've never had pink hearts.

And I don't speak for all of us (ever), but I don't get into shows for free. Maybe once or twice, ever. I would rather the band or artist have the money, even if I can't stand them.

You simply make the north texas scene look UGLY, dl. This is all fucking ugly and when you write about my band on here it makes us look ugly, like we're in league with satan or something. We Shot Jr is just a mean spirited, ugly blog. You seem to enjoy all the shittalking. If not, then why the FUCK do you allow anonymous posting? You're such a fucking liar.

And i'll chill out once weshotjr is history. Sorry for being so infuriated,
but i'm sick of watching my friends being insulted by the assholes that you seem to
enjoy watch spouting off utter hatred and sarcasm. How could I see you, dl and sr, as
anything but sociopathic? You sit on here, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week FOR FREE no less,
watching anonymous people talk shit about each other. You get off on stirring up a shitstorm of
your own design, and you're using a sacred thing like music to do so.

Now you may be able to convince everyone that what you're doing with
anonymous posting on here is a decent thing, that it hurts no one
and isn't a clever way to get more attention to your blog,
but I know for damn sure that you'll never be able to convince yourselves
of your righteousness when you go to sleep at night, if you do in fact sleep at night.
