Dark Meat/Quiet Hooves/The Great Tyrant (Lola's): Strange bill tonight in Ft. Worth, as Vice Records' Dark Meat is joined by Great Tyrant, a band they couldn't sound any LESS like. Not that this is a bad thing necessarily, just strange. I've been completely underwhelmed by everything I've heard from Dark Meat, so maybe Spune added one of my favorite local live bands, Great Tyrant, in a specific attempt to get me to come to this show. Probs.
Numerators/La Panza/Geistheistler/Go To Hell (Wisconsin, 731 Texas St., Denton)
Executrix/The Heartstring Stranglers/Matthew and the Arrogant Sea (Exploding House): Exploding House is turning into quite a nice little development for the music scene in Ft. Worth. This is the first of two solid show's they'll be hosting this weekend, and although it requires a drive to Ft. Worth, the guys at Exploding House are making it harder and harder to avoid.
Nylon Tour with She Wants Revenge/Be Your Own Pet/The Virgins/Switches (House of Blues): What a load of horrible bullshit. Especially the Virgins. I really want to punch them.
License to Trill with Bobby Trill and Cool Out (Moosh)
Cardinals/Dirty Water Disease/Doyen/Mom (802 Massey St., Denton): Birthday house party with kegs. Translation: show up early. Apparently Cardinals is Geistheistler.
The Folly Fandango/The Noise Revival/Starhead (Hailey's)
Bangs/Short Attention Span Theater (Rubber Gloves): Apparently SAST will be doing videos during a dance floor set from Bangs.
Baptist Generals/Dust Congress (Cafe Rembrant, 703 McKinney Ave.): This is an Art Prostitute after party. I'm not sure if it's invite only or not, but it doesn't matter to me because I'm always invited to everything.
Hands up! with DJ Teenage Wolf and The Party (The Loft)
Dark Meat (Good Records, 4pm, FREE)
Radiohead/Liars (Starplex): Yes, I'm fucking calling it Starplex from now on. I'm not going to allow my teenage memories of Lollapalooza 95 to be clouded by some website I've never even been to.
Japanther/The Pharmacy/Naxat (Rubber Gloves): Uh, yes you should go to this show. Just heard some great new stuff by Japanther too.
Vivian Girls/Vacation/Teenage Cool Kids (Exploding House): Heard a fun little rumor that Japanther might be opening up this show on their way to Denton. I wonder....
El Paso Hot Button/Attractive and Popular (Good Records, 3pm, FREE)
Black Rebel Motorcycle Club (Granada): This is a private show that requires an RSVP, which you can send to email@example.com I believe the show is free, and I don't believe I remember any BRMC songs other than that one that kinda sounds like a Brian Jonestown Massacre song mixed with a Jesus and Mary Chain song. You know the one, right?
Cody Robinson/Daniel Folmer/Dust Congress/The Baptist Generals(Dan's Silverleaf)
