It List: Thursday

Hands Up! with Nacotheque
and The Party
(The Loft):
The Party brings yet another high concept touring act, this time it's the New York DJ Duo, Nacotheque. Nacotheque spins an entire Spanish-only set, consisting of one-hit-wonders, electro obscurities, Nouveau 80's, punk, and just about any underground sounds that avoid the mainstream Latin and Reggaeton pop that Telemundo presents. Starting off modestly in the respectable Cake Shop venue, the duo has gone on to be nominated for "Best Party In New York," and puts on shows from Monterrey to Madrid. Read the insightful interview conducted by Nature, here.

Simon Joyner
/Sam Locke Ward/Sarah Jaffe/Delmore Pilcrow
(715 Panhandle):
About as far away as you can get from last week's show, this is a handful of folk and song-focused acts, although it looks like Chris Garver might be playing with band in tow. Omaha songwriter Simon Joyner has been touring and recording for the last fifteen years and has released records on Secretly Canadian and Jagjaguwar, though they're pretty much the same label. Joyner's clear, well annunciated singing creates an almost uncomfortable atmosphere over the 70's styled folk rock while managing to shake off the trappings of that era and sometimes even sounds like Lou Reed's more direct solo statements. Worth checking out and definitely the best place to see this or almost any kind of show.

80's Night With DJ G (Hailey's): At last week's 80's Night it occurred to me that I've heard "Let's Dance" probably five times as often as I did in 1983, when it was played on my parents' stereo non-stop.

Pandora Fact: Joy Division and New Order will give you identical play lists that include both bands. Although, you won't hear INTERPOL in a New Order station.

I will not stop this until we shot jr is no more. I belive you paint a horrible picture of the north texas music scene, you promote sociopathy and urge people to hide hehind masks of anonymity instead of teaching them to be proud of who they are and what the have to say. I see no point to anonymous posting than to stir up the shitstorm/make life gererally more chaotic and promote overall trashtalking and vindictiveness. I suppose there is one more reason for anonymous posting and that is it(anonymous posting) paints us all the tricky picture that we shot jr is a "popular blog" with hundreds of posters/supporters, and therefore absolutely worthy of respect. But all these so called supporters ever do is trashtalk each other and pick on those who aren't on here, at the time, to defend themselves.

This blog is childish, ugly and sadly unbeknownst to most, dangerous. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that you can do some real damage to personal relationships on here by use of this "fill in the blanks with whichever name you choose" name column which precedes every comment box. So I urge you, the anons(no offense, but it's true) who run we shot jr, to end anonymous posting and help make north texas a place that outsiders can respect and admire; a place that us locals can be proud of. Thanks.
