It List: Thursday

Scarily Terrible/Peace Corpse/Falkens Maze/Farah (the Cavern): Fara will be opening up this show before she heads off to Los Angeles to play some Italians Do it Better shows. I still love how mad people around here get every time they're reminded that she has music released on a cool label and they don't. Keep being a "real" musician, brah. It'll get you places, I swear. Anyway, I hope Farah teams up with Johnny Jewel on some new tracks some time in the near future. The rest of this line up leans heavily towards the goofy retro variety of electro, with Peace Corpose the highlight in my mind. And although the name Scarily Terrible sounds like a band name that an Observer staff writer would pick for a Forever the Sickest Kids opening act, they are better than you might think.

The Black Angels/Brothers and Sisters/True Widow (Granada)

Lost Generation (Fallout Lounge): This will be the very last Lost Generation DJ night with Wanz, like, ever, as the Fallout Lounge has decided to try a new hip hop night on Thursdays. Based on the many times I have stopped by Fallout on Thursday nights over the past couple of years, Lost Generation rarely pulled in a big crowd, making the awkward Fallout "dancefloor" even more difficult to dance on than normal, but Wanz Dover certainly should be given props for spinning some of the most diverse and forward thinking dance/electro sets to be heard anywhere in Dallas. Playing everything from rare funk to post punk to German minimal to tech house to French Disco to no wave/noise, Wanz was usually full of surprises and generally void of the blog house remix remixes that dudes in girl jeans like to "spin" on their ipods. Stop by and say goodbye to Wanz, and you might get a chance to hear a little bit of the following segement of his playlist for tonight:

Gang of Four, Sun Ra, Alice Coltrane, Modeselektor, The Boredoms, The Meters, Theoretical Girls, Scratch Acid, Ricardo Villalobos, James Chance, Portishead, Silver Apples, Aphex Twin, Kurtis Blow, Siriusmo, The Damned, Autechre, The Ruts, Midnight Juggernauts, (new) Ellen Allien,(new)Anja Schneider, Atari Teenage Riot, James Brown, Suicide

Sounds pretty good, check it out.

Great American Novel/Pretty Baby/Browningham (Lola's): Browningham seems to be the only thing worth listening to here.

80's Night with DJG (Hailey's): G didn't give us that playlist. Oh well. I'm sure We Made Out Once will be making out there regardless.

telling farah to be "real" is like telling stephen hawking to "get off his lazy ass and do the dishes once in a while".

maybe he should get off his lazy ass! i mean, just because he wrote a brief history of time he think's he's too good to help around the house or something? what a douchebag.

Farah hmmm? If you ever get a chance you should ask her what her music is about. She will invariably reply "METAPHYSICS". Then you should ask her what she likes about "METAPHYSICS"; to which she will stare blankly into a void for a while. Im sure Mr. Hawking would be would be proud. Either way, "METAPHYSICS".

I think Farah has taken enough shit from all of us. I know that I want to stop pouring hatred on the bands I don't like and start pouring some love on the ones I do (like). And i'm POSITIVE that it's a real waste of energy to be hateful anyways. I know i've learned that you can't get mad at someone for doing something they love to do. Since when is it a crime to do what you love?

It's only rock and roll.....so rock on Farah!
