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.
