Weekender

FRIDAY

Akkolyte/The Genuine Imitations/Summer Salt/The Gravestones/Gorge/Rocket for Ethiopia (Carrolton Plaza Arts Center): The always fierce Akkolyte headlines this suburban punk rock show organized by members of the excellent Rocket for Ethiopia and some of their crew from Carrolton. Be sure to check out RFE's quality new material on their Myspace page.

Hieroglyphics (Granada Theater): Hip hop crew founded by Del Tha Funkee Homosapian in the early 90's makes an appearance at the Granada this evening. The group had a HUGE influence in late 90s underground rap circles, and you can hear this loud and clear in their music. You could maybe call this stuff a bridge between Tribe and Guru and later backpack heroes suck as Jurassic 5. Some of this stuff might sound a bit plain and watered down to today's hip hop audience, but shit is pretty solid.

Febrifuge CD Release Show with The Fuzzy Coos (Art 6): We'll have more on Denton's Febrifuge next week, but for now we can tell you that they'll be celebrating the release of the debut Febrifuge full length this evening. It's a pretty interesting CD too.

Beauty School Drop Out with The Fire Nation/Sticky Buns/Small Town Ruffians/Swamps of Sadness (Rubber Gloves): Last minute show put together by Promohomo that will apparently help him pay to go to Beauty School or something. Fuck Darfur man, THIS is charity.

Paper Jam feat. Schwa (Public Trust): This thing goes from 6-9pm and features a big sale of prints, some up to 40% off.

Brothers and Sisters/Faceless Werewolves/Bridges and Blinking Lights (Hailey's)

Time Bandits Party (Time Bandits): This party at one of Denton's quality botique stores (they focus on vintage fashion and a fantastic little vinyl collection) will feature free beer and vegan food, as well as 20% off clothes. Goes from 7-11 pm.

Nasher Sculpture Center Friday Night Films (Nasher): They'll be playing 80's classic Big this evening. The website is unclear as to when exactly it starts, but it says 6-11, and I'm guessing the movie will begin at sundown, right around 9pm.

SATURDAY

Dub Assembly 2 Year Anniversary feat. Hatcha (Green Elephant): The highlight of the weekend for us here at WSJR HQ. As Mundo discussed in our interview with him today, Hatcha is one of the original English dubstep pioneers, and could probably be considered a visionary within the genre. He is often credited with compiling and releasing the very first dubstep compilation mix (Dubstep Allstarts Vol. 1), and was a major force at Big Apple records in London, which served as the epicenter of the movement at its inception. Not only that, he was a regular on the legendary London pirate radio station Rinse FM, as well as a resident at Club Forward >>, which is widely considered to be the first club in London to concentrate on the bass heavy dubstep sound. Basically, you couldn't have this music without this guy, and it's a real privilege to have him here in town.

Marked Men/Birthday Suits/Wax Museums/Bad Sports (Rubber Gloves):If you've ever wanted to see the Marked Men, definitely make it out, as this is their last show for two years and it could even be longer than that due to guitarist and singer Jeff Burke's move to Japan. Arguably Denton's most successful punk export besides The Riverboat Gamblers, The Marked Men have made quite an impact with the diehard garage extremists that swear by distorted barre chords and two minute sing-alongs while absolutely hating everything else. That's somewhat of an exaggeration but the proud mood will be elevated, and this is the perfect lineup to send The Marked Men out on a locally supportive high note.



L'Antietam/Pools/Mako/Sinister Ghost (1919 Hemphill)


That's What's Hot (Fallout Lounge): After hearing a 20 minute Italo/synth pop/space disco/acid house mix from That's What's Hot like six months ago (it is not posted on their Myspace page), I've been wanting to hear more from these guys ever since. Tonight's free performance at Fallout is certainly one worth checking out, especially if you want to try dancing to something new-- which in this case is very rare old school dance tracks. No one else in DFW is doing quite the same thing these guys are.

Jerry Seinfeld (Fair Park Music Hall)

My Education/Zanzibar Snails/Hotel Hotel (Hailey's)

Animal House 2 with The Kul/Damaged Goods/Sydney Confirm/Uzoy/Rayne/Prince William/Fishr Pryce (Doublewide): Quality local hip hop heavy show this evening featuring several of our favorites, including Prince William and Damaged Goods, who contributed an excellent track to our most recent Projection Compilation. Sydney Confirm's dance oriented electro pop and The Kul's fairly straight forward dance rock add a bit of spice to the mix. The Kul is pretty heavy on cheese and recycled riffs, but shit, this show is solid pretty much all the way through.

Dallas Observer Music Awards (Various locations, Greenville Ave.): Well, the one thing the Observer might have done right is selling all access passes that get you into all the showcases. This will help make it easy to catch the scattered few quality acts while helping patrons avoid sitting through one of these horribly planned shows in full.

SUNDAY

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.

Kyle, or whoever that is that is posting under "Kyle". Feel free to get over this at anytime. Sure there is some negativity here, but you should take it with a grain of salt. I'd rather have unfiltered opinions, than people pulling punches to save face.

By the way, you can choose to not click and read the comments.

Due to posts on this blog I was able to find a lot of bands that I've liked. I've found some that I didn't.

And remember that no one was talking shit about you before you decided to come here starting shit and outing SR(whether true or not). You bring up "hiding" as an anon, but SR could have easily chose to give his name for "cred" in the scene, but he didn't. There is two sides to that coin.

why do i get the feeling that "coleen" is kyle's tranny name-by-night?

i've never met a colleen in denton, or anyone in denton who'll still defend his crazy ass.

1:16 - my sentiments exactly. Multiple posts, late at night (about midnight until two), stuck on the "honesty" of signing one's name, etc. So Kyle, who's integrity is compromised now? Posting under a woman's name is somehow better than posting anonymously? Either Canada is boring as fuck (which I know to be untrue), or Kyle can't make friends any better up there than in Denton. Surprising considering his sociopathic nature, isn't it?

even the two 20-year old girls in denton that still think kyle's not a scumbag wouldn't even agree to thinking he's "hot" and wanting to "fuck his brains out"..

Animal House 2 was good...decent turnout..highlight performances were from Uzoy, Sydney Confirm (blew my mind), and Damaged Good$. Dissappointed that Prince William wasnt able to make the show.

The owner was coked out and blamed the promoter because people got in without ids...and we all know thats the promoters job to check IDs right...buhahaha. Nonetheless cool event..
