It List: Thursday

Yeah, a lot is going on tonight, but at 9pm, you guys should really put down the bongs and stop the conversations for a little bit and watch Barack Obama's acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention. Dallas Democrats are having a watching party at Lakewood Theater this evening starting at 7pm, and it might be a really good place to see such a thing. Music:

Indian Jewelry/Zanzibar Snails/Followed by Static (The Lounge): We've said a lot about this show this week, but we'll just add that Zanzibar Snails will be selling new CDs at the show tonight, and their performance with feature a guest appearance from Dust Congress' bassoon player, who was the inspiration for the best joke I've ever told on here. Ask your friends!

Jeremy Enigk/Sarah Jaffe/Kris Youmans/Omoreka (House of Blues): It really pisses me off that they named this place "Pontiac Garage," like it's some dingy little practice space where poor geniuses go to toil in obscurity. Those places usually don't have gift shops, but whatevs. Honesty time: I've never heard one single Jeremy Enigk solo song in my entire life, although I hear that much of it is considerably more adventurous than anything Sunny Day Real Estate ever did. I really used to like Sunny Day's Sub Pop debut until I realized one day that it was the one record that made it ok for punks to cry. And don't say the Descendents did that, because Milo would totally kick Enigk's ass.

Jack with One Eye/Sean Kirkpatrick/Silk Stocking (Club Dada): Jack with One Eye is a pretty quality group that hardly ever plays shows. Hey shitty local bands-- write that down please.

Parachutes/Starhead/Grassfight (Rubber Gloves)

Queensryche (Nokia Theater): "Silent Lucidity" is probably the absolute lamest song I like.

80's Night with DJ G (Hailey's)

I still don't know what I was waiting for
And my time was running wild
A million dead-end streets
Every time I thought I'd got it made
It seemed the taste was not so sweet
So I turned myself to face me
But I've never caught a glimpse
Of how the others must see the faker
I'm much too fast to take that test

(Turn and face the strain)
Don't want to be a richer man
(Turn and face the strain)
Just gonna have to be a different man
Time may change me
But I can't trace time

What happened to Denton Rock City? Did they have their balls lopped off? They used to be bitchy and annoying, but they had some bite. Now that the big stupid fight between Virden and Baish settled down, everyone's playing all nice and shit. BORING. Come on, Denton. I know you can do better than that. Someone please at least tell Schmancy how lame she is. She doesn't even live in Denton. Come on. Adub, make some shitty comments about noise metal. Hime, pretend you know anything. DENTON, PLEASE GET IN A FIGHT. I don't hate you enough right now.

Hi, haters.

Just thought I'd let you know that The Toadies new album is Number 1 in sales at Waterloo Records here in Austin this week. Same goes for Newberry Comics in Boston... just the two most influential indie stores in the country.

So are you guys gonna suspend the Top 20 at Good Records when The Toadies hits Number 1 there too? 'Cause, you know, numbers don't mean anything and all that.

The Toadies new album is #2 on the current Good Records Top 20, right behind the Walkmen.

After the show at the Palladium this past weekend, I bet it's #1 next week.

Waterloo and Newbury Comics are great and I'll always love them, but Other Music and Amoeba are probably more influential when it comes down to it. Also, Sound On Sound and Mystery Train are better and are in Austin and Boston respectively.

Snake Eyes closed down, which sucks.
