It List: Tuesday
'Twas a bad day for the Myspace player to be down, but it was. I'll tell you what I know.
Capsule/Furnace/Hide And Secret/Trifle Tower (715 Panhandle): One of a couple of punk shows in Denton tonight, with this one especially heavy on the Skramz, both local and touring. For those that might not know, Skramz is what we say since this word has so much baggage attached to it. Trifle Tower is your best bet as far as local groups in this genre.
Test Patterns/The Wax Museums/Bad Sports/Vacation (Rubber Gloves): Much more light-hearted and garage-y punk show with some newer bands I've been hearing a lot about. Bad Sports is fronted by Orville Neeley, formerly of Chief Death Rage and I've been meaning to post the above video for months. Vacation is another young band with members of Bad Sports, Wax Museums, and the celebrated Marked Men. Somewhat unexpectedly, Denton seems to be known for its garage punk as much as anything else. A lot of these groups tend to sell a lot more records nationally than locally, which is ideal yet confusing. Looking forward to hearing a proper full-length from The Wax Museums.
Deep Snapper/Mother's Anger/The Delta Block (J and J's Pizza): I like the selflessness of these benefit shows, but there is something about the hippie presentation that weirds me out sometimes. I mean, if I show up to J and J's tonight is someone going to slip some sort of mysterious gnome-related tincture into my root beer? Proceeds go to Oklahoma tornado victims and Deep Snapper already has a new record out soon.
The Physics Of Meaning/Binary Sunrise/Your Midway Host (The Cavern)
Gazelles/Dignan/All Get Out (Hailey's):
Gazelles is an indie pop group that's been around for years now, but you might also recognize one of the members from It's What We Get.
Disqo Disco (Fallout Lounge)
