It List: Monday

Monday It Lists usually take us like two minutes to write because Mondays usually suck around here, but today you're in for a treat because Denton is jumpin' this evening. Relatively speaking, of course. Check it:


The Coke Dares/Tre Orsi/Kaboom (Rubber Gloves): The Coke Dares consist of three members of Magnolia Electric Co., but they don't really sound like it. Instead, they sort of have a mid 80's hardcore mixed with west coast pop punk and The Replacements thing going on. They aren't shy with the massive rock riffs either. It's sort of like, um, I'm afraid to say it. Ok, I'll say it. Grunge. It's sort of like Grunge, like Mudhoney and Tad and stuff, like a more rocking version of something you'd hear on the Singles soundtrack (click the link to see a bunch of clothes that will NEVER be retro cool), except without that really terrible early 90's drum sound. Why the shit did they used to record like that anyway? It kinda ruins everything. I saw someone say Minutemen somewhere describing this band too, but I'm not buying it. The songs are too traditional. Anyway, solid line up overall, and Kaboom will be debuting new guitarist Ethan Hahn this evening as well.

Sticky Buns (Hailey's): Go check Sticky Buns out if you like what they play, because this is apparently their last show for a while, and possible FOR EV ER.

Listen Listen/Delmore Pilcrow/Dust Congress (818 Cordell, Denton): I love Denton. And I especially love rollin up to Denton with a big crew from Big D so that we can act like morons all night. Not that we do it on purpose or anything, but somehow it always manages to happen in Denton. I don't know why. Honestly, it's almost as fun as going down to Austin and being an asshole to people who just moved there from Carrolton and are already snobby about breakfast tacos or whatever the fuck people talk about down there. Just kidding, Travis County! Love ya! Anyway, one of the reasons I sometimes act unruly in Denton probably has something to do with cool BYOB house shows like this. Most of our readers are very familiar with the excellent Dust Congress and Delmore Pilcrow (Chris Garver) by now, and Listen Listen are a solid band from Houston who remind me of a lot of indie folk touchstones, particularly Okkervil River, with a horn section that sort of sounds like that found on Samamidon's latest recordings. Lot's of classic Americana and bluegrass influences can be heard too, as well as a distinct Pac NW folkie sound that comes from God knows where (think recent K Records stuff). Not entirely different from Theater Fire, but with vocals that sound more urgent and unsteady. Should be a fun show.

That video sucked. If it was trying to do kyle a service...it didn't. If it wasn't...it didn't. It was just weak, no matter what the point was.

Hey you, out there in the cold
Getting lonely, getting old
Can you feel me?
Hey you, standing in the aisles
With itchy feet and fading smiles
Can you feel me?
Hey you, dont help them to bury the light
Dont give in without a fight.

Hey you, out there on your own
Sitting naked by the phone
Would you touch me?
Hey you, with you ear against the wall
Waiting for someone to call out
Would you touch me?
Hey you, would you help me to carry the stone?
Open your heart, Im coming home.

But it was only fantasy.
The wall was too high,
As you can see.
No matter how he tried,
He could not break free.
And the worms ate into his brain.

Hey you, standing in the road
Always doing what youre told,
Can you help me?
Hey you, out there beyond the wall,
Breaking bottles in the hall,
Can you help me?
Hey you, dont tell me theres no hope at all
Together we stand, divided we fall.

[click of tv being turned on]
Well, only got an hour of daylight left. better get started
Isnt it unsafe to travel at night?
Itll be a lot less safe to stay here. youre fathers gunna pick up our trail before long
Can loca ride?
Yeah, I can ride... margaret, time to go! margret, thank you for everything
Goodbye chenga
Goodbye miss ...
Ill be back
