It List: Wednesday

Detour with Black Tie Dynasty/Schwa/Sally Glass downstairs and Dance Your Face Off upstairs (The Cavern): I was officially sick of making fun of Black Tie Dynasty several months ago. I mean, it's clear that these dudes don't really have a shot at "making it" anymore now that ripping off Interpol rip offs is no longer cool with 14 year olds. Right? Oh well. Maybe we should let them die peacefully. Anyway, for those who didn't know, Detour is a new arts/music monthly at the Cavern that will feature art work, DJs, and live bands. They made the unfortunate choice of BTD as a headliner this time (although the fact that it is an acoustic set will make it a bit easier to ignore), but they also made the wise choice of Schwa as the DJ and our friend Sally Glass as the featured artist. As anyone perched atop a tower at a SXSW house party will tell you, she's like the most amazing photographer in the fucking world and shit.... ha ha, you don't get the WSJR inside joke. Anyway, she'll be selling some of her photos at the show, and even if you don't believe me when I tell you that they're good, you can rest assured that you'll see some people you want to see at this thing, because Sally is kinda a big deal in Dallas right now. Believe it.

Ghost Pizza with It's What We Get/Yeahdef/Young Doc Gooden (Hailey's): Diverse group of DJs playing tonight, ranging from Doc Gooden's chopped and screwed dirty hip hop to disco/house sets from Its What We Get. Solid.

The Scoop (Fallout Lounge): Lots of downtempo and breakbeat and jazz influenced stuff. Pretty low key if that is what you're looking for this evening.

showing art at the cavern is a terrible idea.

but i guess since you kids get your culture from a bar i guess it'll be ok just chug another beer.

Don't have a band - just curious to get WSJR's take. Which is why we're both here at this site - for their opinion.

If you can't see the benefits of mixing bands, DJ's and artists into a single bill then you are yet another reason why Dallas is way behind the rest of the country. In Los Angeles they have extreme noise shows at the museums and galleries. Can you imagine Wolf Eyes playing the DMA? Not likely. Pull the the stick out of you ass. Music is also Art dipshit.

This person either writes for The Observer or is in one of the bands that was nominated. Congrats either way. I don't think this site should even give that list a review, it's not even worth it.

Los Angeles has a lot more going on in it's music scene than Dallas. what is better:

A city full of fake people with very few clubs and not much going on


A city full of fake people with 20 different things going on every night of the week.

The cavern isn't a gallery or a museum.

5:26 PM  
Anonymous Anonymous said...

but is a a venue. The point I was trying to make is that we have to make do with what we have. Until Museums and Galleries start hosting bands we have to take what we can get.

and to 1:45pm.

I was not bitching. Just stating a fact.

why do bands want to play in galleries and museums?

are they trying to say their music is art ?

why not appreciate music in a proper music venue,
and enjoy art in a gallery.

bars are great for drinking and partying are you really there to look at pictures on the walls?

don't trick me into thinking i'm going to see an art show at the cavern.

unless your going to light the walls and move the furniture out of the way (for a close up of the photos)it's hardly an art show.

I get it, it's fun to have a little bit of everything right there in one place .

Music IS Art.

Especially Avant Garde Noise Stuff. If you really don't buy that idea go tell John Cage or Stockhausen.

oh, did you mean that music is one of the arts. like literature or dance?

not, that music is actually something visual like art.

sorry silly mistake.

or are you being quite literal when you say music is art?
