It List: Wednesday

Fancy Fist/Jessie Mayeux/DJ Baby Ruthless/DJ Ronin with Dance Your Face Off Upstairs (The Cavern): We're kind of worried that our friend Sally Glass, aka Fancy Fist, is going to get too big for us soon and leave us to drown our sorrows with bad beer and dumb opinions on local music as she enjoys the kind of fame and fortune that we could only dream of. After just a couple introductory gigs around town last month, Sally's calendar is now packed with upcoming shows, and she is just returning from her debut Austin performance last night at the Mohawk. I'm not sure how it went because I haven't heard from her yet today, but I'm not worried-- I'm pretty sure WSJR will always be on her speed dial. Right? Right guys? Sally? Hello?

Burning Brides/Middle Class Rut/True Widow (Club Dada): We've been pretty big fans of John Iskander's Parade of Flesh shows ever since we interviewed him last year, but I'm not sure I really get this one. Burning Brides are one of those bands who actually list The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Nirvana and Smashing Pumpkins as influences on their Myspace page, and I usually try pretty hard to stay away from groups that do stuff like that. However, in the interest of not being a total dick, I spent some time with some of their music this weekend, and after several songs I realized that I was right all along-- this basically sounds like modern cock rock to me. And I mean "modern" like "alternative" here. Same goes with Middle Class Rut, making locals True Widow the automatic highlight here with their DGC era Sonic Youth meets shogaze, britpop and Brian Jonestown Massacre sound. Some fairly decent stuff here and there. Anyway, there is a reason we expect more than this from Parade of Flesh shows, and Iskander's upcoming birthday party at Club Dada with Health provides a pretty good example of what we're used to from him.

ADD: And how could we forget: Earth, Wind and Fire are at Nokia. I've been jamming to their 1983 album Powerlight like all summer basically. And David Banner is at House Of Blues.

we run around doing the same thing at the same places how awesome are we!

I can't get into them because they don't get into what i do .

i bet you fuckers will go out and buy becks new record even though you never met him.

or maybe you'll go see the new batman movie and drop $8 a ticket but complain about shows that cost more than $5.

I don't get it. Try forming your arguments using a series of well though out sentences so that I can actually understand what you're trying to say before I make you look stupid again.

Smashing Pumpkins KICKASS.

Listing them on your myspace page DOESNOT KICKASS.

Having a myspace page listing influences is GAY.

Shitkander is NOT SO GAY and Sally is NOT a HOT PIECE OF ASS.

That's just like, my opinion, MAN.

The best part of this site, is all the comments Sally posts about herself being hot.

Either that or someone is playing a joke on her.

But, some people do like spare tires I guess

All pretension aside, Burning Brides were actually pretty rad, but then I am a guy who likes to rock out sometimes. Middle class rut were really baddass as well...as far as the opinions of the author of this blog, opinions are like assholes, everyone has one, and if the opinion giver IS an asshole then I really don't give two shits what they have to say. I can say after reading this blog a few times, and considering alot of the music they usually recommend(douche rock), someone at We shot JR, is an asshole, but they are probably proud of that fact. Enjoy the aroma.

And thanks John for bringing some good shows to DALLAS.
