It List: Tuesday
The Breeders/Colour Revoult (House Of Blues): I still haven't figured out what I think of the new Breeders record. It's interestingly minimal and a fairly dark departure from their last record, which wasn't exactly chipper either. There are some real gems mixed in with awkwardly up front and dry percussion parts and the usual slurred, treated vocals. Overall, it's worth going back to and I'm looking forward to the band conveying their intentions on one of the most hated stages in the city (or in any city). The Breeders are a terribly charming live act, though it's doubtful this will top the Amps performance at Trees I caught at an already jaded fifteen years of age. I just want to talk about liking The Breeders so I won't say much about Colour Revolt, other than to say at least Deathray Davies aren't opening this time. At least they were kind of funny.
DJ Jazzy Jeff (Ghostbar): Innovative, scratch-heavy DJ and producer that is still capable of greatness, with a recognizable style that hasn't succumbed to every little stylistic change in Hip Hop. It's consistently annoying that such venues score respectable acts. That's kind of a running joke in DFW.
Disqo Disco (Fallout Lounge): Despite suffering from some unfortunate equipment theft woes, Disqo Disco will still be going on tonight.
