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)
