Weekender

Man, it's another one of those busy weekends that seems like a real drag while I'm writing about it but actually ends up being really fun while I'm experiencing it. Saturday in Dallas should be particularly great, and I'm not just talking about Game One between the Mavs and Hornets, a team I know we can beat. Shows (by the way, I know Cat Power canceled, but a homie can still paste a picture, know what I mean?):

FRIDAY

Yellow Fever/The Theater Fire/Strange Fruit Project/PPT (Ft. Worth Modern): We talked about this in our Art List this week, and I highly recommend you get there by 7 for Yellow Fever, clearly the best band in this line up.

ADD: Dub Assembly with Scuba/Mundo/Keith P/Royal Highnuss (Green Elephant)

Nelly Party (Opus Lounge): Nelly is hosting a party where they will be filming his new DVD

Scout Niblett/The Angelus/Lo Fi Chorus/Joey Kendall (The Cavern)

Concernathon 2008 with Record Hop/Shiny Around the Edges/Bridges and Blinking Lights/White Drugs/Tre Orsi/Jetscreamer/Handbrake/Last Men (Rubber Gloves): This was put together by Department of Concern, a local booking entity run by Heather Yiirs, who formerly booked for Rubber Gloves exclusively. A lot of familiar names in this crowded yet solid lineup, and I want to mention that Record Hop will feature the subversive charms of Martin Ile's video projections during their set.

Jodie Foster's Army/Bark Hard/ANS/Rageous Bros (Red Blood Club): This will be the first Texas show in about a decade for the unfathomably influential skate punk band, with a very strong opening lineup.

Dove Hunter/Sarah Jaffe/Sean Kirkpatrick (Club Dada): New rule-- band URLs on myspace must either be 1) myspace.com/nameofband; 2) myspace.com/nameofbandmusic; or 3)myspace.com/nameofbandband. If you can't do one of those, you lose. I'm talking to you, Dove Hunter and Fight Bite.

SATURDAY

Good Records 8th Birthday (Good Records): A free, all day show at the store that runs from 11 in the damn morning to midnight, and usually features free kegs and food and plenty of opportunities to drunkenly buy stuff you can't really afford. I'll probably base my Good Records appearances on the Mavs game: drink some beer before the game, stop by at half time, etc. The line up is quite varied in both styles and quality, but some highlights include Fight Bite, Great Tyrant, Record Hop, Baptist Generals and headliners the Black Angels. You can see the full line up here.

Cat Power/Appaloosa (Palladium): Canceled, boo hoo.

ADD: Jesse Saunders (Minc): Famous house producer comes to Minc; credited with releasing the first ever house single in 1984.  Can't believe I missed posting this show earlier.  Boo.

Some Sort of Party (House of Dang): Going from 6 to 930, this thing will feature free drinks and music and all the other stuff that makes HOD parties fun. I don't know exactly what is going on there other than that, but who cares? It's not like you don't go there just to see and be scene. Duh.

Hands up with The Party (The Loft): 18 and up. You can decide whether that is a good thing or not. Guess it depends on how drunk you get.

Dana Falconberry/Matthew and the Arrogant Sea/Man Factory(Swiss House, 3114 Swiss Ave): Five dollar cover and BYOB. Some people were bitching about the cover in one of the comments sections earlier, but honestly, in Dallas, that is a pretty good deal, especially considering that it's turned into a lively after hours spot. Sure, it sucks to have to pay a cover after all the bands are done, and I hope they quit making people do that. But then again, it is a dude's house, so you might have to forgive him for that small error in judgment. Besides, you should get there early enough to see Dana Falconberry anyway, dumbass. I think she goes on around 12.

The Sub Rosa Blog Presents Akkolyte/Warcola/Vorvadoss/Molotov Compromise/Electric Brown (Red Blood Club): A benefit of some kind starting early (around 4pm) and featuring some visual art. Learn more here. Akkolyte and Vorvadoss are two of the best heavy bands in the area, in case you didn't know, and Akkolyte's grind-core set is not to be missed.

Concernathon 2008 with Astronautalis/Mom/History at Our Disposal/Single Frame/Sarah Jaffe/Gazelles/Raised By Tigers/Tame...Tame and Quiet/Florene/Grassfight (Rubber Gloves): Second night of the event featuring a much more laid back and restrained lineup, save for Astronautilus, which generally means a lot more effects pedals on-stage. Watch your step!

Violent Squid/Zanzibar Snails/Mad Scientists/Drak Nastula and Cuddle Puddle/Delmore Pilcrow/Heartstring Stranglers/Mauve X(Hailey's): This show has something to do with aliens or something, and starts early at 7pm.

The Triggermen/Brent Best/Starhead/Will E Lee/Ryan Thomas Becker(Strawberry Fields): Starts at 7.

SUNDAY

Negativland (Sons of Hermann Hall): Check out our interview with Negativland below. I can't think of a better show for 4/20 than this one, especially considering that they will be playing entirely unique and new material as well as doing some improv. Show starts at 8pm, and you can pick up advance tickets at Good Records if you wanna.

New York Dolls/American Fuse (The Granada): It's kind of strange to me that the New York Dolls are playing in Dallas some 30 years after their peak. It's also kind of strange to me to imagine them without guitarist Johnny Thunders. But whatever. Out of all the old "legendary" bands that seem so reunite every year, the gender confused, glam influenced proto-punk New York Dolls seem more likely than most to come off as a wonderful trainwreck, even if it is a trainwreck all the same. Seeing these dudes in tight pants and stuff? Not cool.

tonight at FEVER we're giving away el macho's first ever mixtape, hopefully the first of many. it's not a mixtape in the vein of stereo on strike or disqo disco, but a boy's gotta start somewhere. you'll hear new stuff by ladytron, zoot woman, and the presets, as well as a bunch of other things in one neat little 73 minute package. we'll have about 30 of 'em, so get there early to pick one up.

tracklisting is at fevertheblog.blogspot.com

Not sure if anyone here digs Clutch, but they are doing a 4/20 show at HOB. They are a bit ridiculous but have some good jams that will go well with the "holiday".

Good to see some really good choices for stuff to do in dallas this weekend.

Go Mavs.

Also this weekend: Dub Assembly at Green Elephant Friday night, Big J and Schwa's new Friday night weekly at Moosh, Select's Uptown Fridays at Zubar, house uber-legend Jess Saunders at Minc on Saturday, and (perhaps most importantly) a Nelly-hosted party at Opus Lounge on Friday night where they'll be shooting Nelly's new DVD.

Dear Gutterth,

Please don't put pics up of Daniel Francis Doyle on your website. He doesn't spell his name dAniel frAncis doyle and he has more talent than your entire roster combined. If he still lived here, he would never play a Gutterth show because he has class and he's not an asshole. Also, he wasn't in the pAperchAse, thank God (or Satan because that's more dark, goth, trite and immature). You're probably decent enough guys but the people on your website are a veritable who's who of the worst the metroplex has to offer, save for a couple of random bands or artists on your shows. Again, please don't cheapen DFD.

Sincerely,
The Motherfucking Management

that was gae and mean for no reason. There are lots of good bands in the gutterth random photo section, who the hell cares? I'm sure DFD himself doesn't, unlike Anger Management.

Anonymous 6:01,

That photoset is clearly in the "non-Gutterth events" section of the photo gallery, which is basically a portfolio of bands that I have photographed.
There is no stated or implied affiliation of Daniel Francis Doyle with Gutterth at all.
I really enjoy his music and I think the photos came out pretty well.
If Daniel wants the photos down, he can ask us and we will take them down.
