It List: Wednesday
Snowden/Colour Revolt (The Cambridge Room-House Of Blues): Snowden is still plowing through the done-to-death "post punk" style that had so many screamo mall kids trading in their SG's for Junos, only a few short years after they had scrapped their "Blue Voodoo" rap-metal setups due to cultural shifts that they just could not have predicted. It's remarkable that Snowden still has the stamina to keep up in this style. One would assume that they surely would have "evolved" into dirty open chord Springsteen posturing the way their Post Punk contemporaries like The Killers and The Pharmacy have. Bland and formulaic as this stuff tends to be, it's still just a notch above doing something like that. Colour Revolt is one of two bands in America with a member named Sean Kirkpatrick. I just can't figure out which one is better.
Erik Thompson/Dana Falconberry/On After Dark (Dan's Silver Leaf): Erik Thompson is the frontman of Denton's veteran Lo Fi Chorus. Dana Falconberry puts on a fascinatingly flawless live show, and her best songs are complete with some really beautiful chord progressions that could almost pass for the melancholy melodic fragments of a Cole Porter piece.
The Scoop (Fallout Lounge): Schwa will be guesting tonight.
Taxi Fare (Zubar)
The Jungle Rockers/Sawed Off Sick (Double Wide): The Jungle Rockers are notable for combining two of the words you should never use in a band name.
