It List: Thursday

Still recovering from a busy Wednesday in Dallas last night. Sally Glass aka Fancy Fist played to a packed Cavern audience and charmed everyone with a couple of standards mixed in with a set of originals that won everyone over with her inspired yet vulnerable voice. Nature also had a really strong crowd to match a strong set for Taxi Fare, just down the block. With so much activity around Lower Greenville last night, you would have thought it was already that part of the weekend where you stand a good chance of getting in a street fight in the Taco Cabana parking lot.

Stars Of The Lid/Mom/Balmorhea (Granada): Stars Of The Lid is definitely one of the most popular drone acts of all time, and it's especially surprising considering how inaccessible their music is to most. Their set might be a good surreal contrast to the fairly posh Granada atmosphere. The moody yet much more structured groups Mom and Balmorhea also perform.

We Love Techno (Fallout Lounge): Featuring live sets by Wanz "Blixaboy" Dover and fresh off a show at London's Fabric, Convextion. There will also be DJ support from Riga Sprats of Total Vengeance and That's What's Hot.

Thrones/Akkolyte/The High Cost Of Living (Double Wide): Tonight's show will be the first in a series of recordings that Akkolyte will use in putting together their upcoming LP, and I'm as excited about that as I was after first hearing a seven inch scored by a friend at a Moon Tunes show, earth-tones era in Dallas, maybe around 2000.

Stay Cool Swag School Presents-- Midlake DJ set/Young Doc/Totally Trash/Markus with a K (Rubber Gloves): We'll have some giveaways at this show, because it's about time that we give a little something back to the community that has provided us with so many special little moments spent wondering who hates us so much. Peace.

80's Night With DJ G (Hailey's): Overheard with DJ G:

Hailey's Patron: "Will you play some ABBA?"

that was a WEAK right up on THRONES. Let me fill you kids:
HIS FIRST TOUR IN FOUR YEARS!! Joe Preston has released solo albums under the name "Thrones" for almost 15 years. Legendary ex-bassist for the MELVINS, HIGH ON FIRE and EARTH. Watch in amazement as he constructs and fuses metal, punk and noise piece by piece, loop by loop.

Sorry, I wanted to say something about Thrones but didn't have the time. Thanks for the constructive criticism and little mini write-up.
