It List: Tuesday
So help me out, DFW. Besides Disqo Disco with El Paso's DJ Czar, I kept finding a catch to every show I was going to post. I mean, I've been hearing about this "Minimal House" on Tuesdays, but then I discovered they were going to project anime along with the music tonight. I can't do that to you Dallas. I won't do that to you. Anime was never cool, and pairing it with dance music is feeding an age-old stereotype that is only fueling the inevitable detractors.
Then there was a show going on at another venue, but there was a pop punk band on the bill that I thought had broken up eleven years ago and I got a little depressed. They weren't even the headlining band (whatever that means) and they've been around forever. So I just couldn't bring myself to post the show.
Finally, there was a bigger act playing down the street but they were on Desoto Records. More often than not, that constitutes almost instant disqualification.
I was really flattered that our site was included in D Magazines's Best Of Big D 2008 issue. I even told my folks, which went something like this:
Dad: "So what I'm getting from this is that you're...feared and revered?"
DL: "I don't know, Dad. I wouldn't go that far."
You couldn't really tell by looking at his skeptical expression, but deep down inside I know he's really proud. So, I'd like to give a shout-out to, well, everyone. We can't do it without you. This was ten times better than SR getting nominated for "Best Music Advocate," an underhanded compliment if there ever was one.
