It List: Thursday

Sex Vid/Wax Museums/Koji Kondo/Secret Bangs (715 Panhandle):
Exciting show at Panhandle tonight featuring the much discussed but rarely experienced Sex Vid, of Olympia, WA. Sex Vid garnered considerable acclaim, considerably quickly, by melding an enraged early 80's Midwest hardcore sound with the experimentally repetitive grit of acts like The Dead C (a band they have covered). The result is something that is immediately identifiable as hardcore, without necessarily slipping down the dogmatically sonic slope sometimes present in the genre. Mix in a complete aversion to the internet (no Myspace page, no website) and you either have a complete revolutionary phenomenon on your hands, or just another hardcore punk band. Depends who you are, I guess. The Secret Bangs kind of remind me of Nation Of Ulysses with a synth or the forward thinking 90's group, The VSS. I've heard a lot about them and will be looking forward to their set tonight.

The Frenz/Sean Kirkpatrick/The Flying Eyes (Club Dada): The Frenz will have Aaron Bartz from Tame, Tame and Quiet filling in on bass this evening, adding to the group's current approach consisting of a more guitar based attack. The Frenz will soon perform some of the Glenn Branca pieces that some of their members played with the composer himself in Seattle recently.

Bob Log III/Possessed By Paul James/Scott Biram (Granada): I've always been kind of irked by the Bob Log III routine, but he sounds as harmless as Harry Connick Jr. doing standards compared to some of the annoying "crazy one-man band" shit he's inspired. Somehow that's actually a compliment, trust me.

Black Tie Dynasty/Grassfight/The Cut*Off (Lola's): Everyone wants to sound like Ian Curtis, but nobody wants to be like Ian Curtis. Go for the gold, m'man! Life's too long!

80's Night With DJ G (Hailey's): See you here after Panhandle, poser.

A lot of shit music today. Most everyone is regurgitating and stuck in "scene" and afraid. Get fucked bro. Look outside your walls. Stop playing what you hear and what your environment programs you to play. STOP.

however, black tie dynasty was gayer than the world series of competitive hair styling in west hollywood.
