It List: Monday

Young Doc Gooden (Hailey's): So are all these local emo/pop punk bands like Christian or something? Is it cool to be Christian in high school now? Are jocks allowed to be in bands these days? Are these little crybabies even IN high school anymore? No, I'm not talking about the opening of Young Doc Gooden's weekly residency at Hailey's, which should be a lot of fun (he'll be playing his dirty krunk and chopped and screwed stuff along with ghetto house and other party people shit). I'm talking about the all ages Emo show going on at Hailey's before he plays. I'm not giving you any links because who the hell cares, but if you want to see what I'm talking about, cruise by Hailey's website and check out tonight's line up. I'd really love it if someone would attempt to explain what the hell these kids are thinking in the comments section or something, because the whole thing sort of reminds me of this book I'm reading right now (I picked the band Color of May's shitty promo pic because they are the cutest). Anyway, I'm sure Hailey's will kick all their asses out before YDG's set at 1130, but I'd make sure and wait until they leave before you even THINK about going over there.

"Christian is a great noun and a poor adjective."
Christian art, Christian books, Christian music all seem pretty lame to me.

That band "We Were Young" is sponsored by Smart Water and some dumb clothing line. I can't wait for the day that rock stars look like nascar drivers onstage.

If you notice, almost all of WWY's comments, on their myspace page, are from teenage girls. When you feed teenage girls on better music, this shit will stop. Where girls go, the guys will follow. If you notice, any credible music movement will have bands that suddenly appear, as if constructed, with cute boys.

That is the problem with the "indie" world. No one wants to reach out to the masses to educate them, but they will bitch about people not liking good music.

this is the 3rd warp zone bizzaro world monday evening pop punk matinee we've done over here. apparently these 'promoters' throw huge daytime pop punk shows in plano that go over like gangbusters? no idea. the whole thing kind of freaks my shit out maaan. the gear is fresh from guitar center in union ATA road cases but the moms are not even hot. i mean what the a fuck?

i can guarantee two things, maybe three:
1.) i will be in the back shrugging a lot
2.) this shit will end on time or early

and maybe i will get hammered drunk

That's interesting, 622, and I think it's a philosophy one should follow when being a DJ as well-- who cares what men want to listen to at the club, you know? If you can play music that the women in the audience want to dance to, then most of the men-- gay, straight or whatever, will follow, and pretty soon you'll have a real party on your hands.

I agree with a comment JC made a little earlier on.
Be very suspicious if a band playing one of their first few shows arrives with brand new gear in road cases.
It's a bad sign.
