It List: Thursday

Sally Glass Going Away Party with The Party/Keith P/Prince William (Moosh, 2020 Greenville Ave.): To get it out of the way real quick-- Tommy Boy had to cancel tonight due to some personal issues. And as much as we'd love to hear one of his excellent sets, it might actually not be an entirely terrible thing on this particular night, considering that we booked a whole shitload of DJs for Sally's going away party. Well, what else did you expect us to do for her? Sally has been a great friend to all of us at WSJR over the past year, and her pictures have played a very crucial role in making this blog the unexpected success it has become. Thousands and thousands of people check out Sally's photos every month, searching for hot chicks, cheating boyfriends, strange clothes, assholes to laugh at, and some really great photos of the better shows happening in the area at any given time. Sally has gone out and taken pictures of just about everything we've ever wanted to see this year, and she's done it with an attitude that is so much more positive than anyone else in the crew that she has also become our ambassador along the way. So thanks Sally for being our friend, our photographer, and the lone friendly face of the blog as a whole. We'll miss you. But for tonight, let's act stupid. See ya there.

Richard Lloyd/Backsliders/Escort Service (Club Dada): Sigh. I'm really not rooting against Club Dada. Truly. I'd love it if another venue in Dallas would start to be fun to hang out at again. The bartenders are pretty nice, and honestly, the space itself is more than decent. But god, walking around Deep Ellum to get to Club Dada is just depressing, and frankly, being inside Club Dada is depressing more often than not. And these line ups sometimes, you know? Former Television guitarist Richard Lloyd is playing Dallas, and it's an exciting thing. But with Backsliders and Escort Service, it starts to seem a bit watered down, doesn't it? The Backsliders are a decent for a straight forward bar rock band I guess, but this is sort of like letting 311 open up for Snoop Dogg (which is actually happening tonight in Dallas as well), isn't it? Anyway, I was going to ask who the ad wizards were that came up with this line up, but then I remembered that one of Club Dada's owners is in Escort Service. NOW I get it!

Record Hop/Shiny Around the Edges/Bob White and the F Electrics (Rubber Gloves): Shiny Around the Edges tells us that they have a lot of new material, and I haven't heard the name "F Electrics" in a REALLY long time. Whatever happened to those dudes?

80s Night with DJ G (Hailey's)

Blue Mountain/The Drams (Dan's Silverleaf)

BAcksliders were really good tonight. Richard Lloyd and Whoever His Band Is - as much as I wanted it to be good - wasn't that great.

Can we get some more bands called "The Blank City Blankers", or "The Blank Folk Blankers" or something along those lines? Jesus Christ. We just can't get enough!

It's like how, for however long since "Chasing Amy," it seems, there's been a billion movies called "Blanking Someone" that I will never want to see, based on name alone.

Nope, neither - I was just calling it like I saw it. Maybe my expectations were off, and I didn't do any research into what Richard Lloyd's band was going to sound like, but I was hoping for something Marque Moon-ish - and to me, it just sounded jammy and half-hearted. Television had great songs, and last night, the songs weren't there.

Come to this site. See how cliquish we all are. Come see how much we suck each other off. How much we knock most music that doesn't have any twang or americana. Come see how WHITE we all are. We don't allow anyone in our clique unless you can speak twang.

Richard Lloyd acted like paranoid and played 3/4 of his set as a Hendrix tribute which was odd considering his guitar style. It was like...... say you were from Irving and you have been living in NYC and you went back and visited yr parents in Irving and ran into a buddy who wanted to have a beer and you and said buddy went to a pool haul and some white guy was on stage playing some decent Hendrix covers and you were like, he did burning of the midnight lamp, lets have one more beer, and then he did Foxy Lady and you bid yr friend goodnight and thought how quaint the evening was. THe BAcksliders on the other hand tore the place down. I should know, I had a great view on stage as the bass player. Keep up the good fight covering local music, hating my band or not. I enjoy your site.

We've seen various squabbles in the comments sections concerning whether or not Silk Stocking will be playing this show, so for now, we're just going to assume that they aren't. But in more important news, Kyle Cheatham's Night Game Cult comes back to town sounding just as insane as ever but probably a bit more ahead of its time than many people gave the guy credit for when he was here. Seeing artists like John Maus, Kelley Polar, Strategy, Jeremy Jay and others blow up around blog land over the past year really makes me thing that Night Game Cult could have enjoyed some of the same success if it weren't for the fact that his music is, in many ways, quite a bit more daring than that of the aforementioned artists. Not to say that Night Game sounds much like Strategy or anything, but part of that same ingredient is present-- you know, the one where it is ok to take Pet Shop Boys and Naked Eyes seriously. Night Game adds a twisted lyrical innocence and an unbalanced outlook that is particularly nervous, especially in a live setting. The respected Matin Iles will also be doing some rather interesting video work for this show. Apparently he and Mr. Cheatham have been working together to prepare a video presentation designed to match every song in tonight's Night Game set. Based on some of Iles' previous work, I'm excited to see this.
