It List: Monday


Sunset Rubdown/Fight Bite/Hospital Ships (Granada): So what's going on here? Welcome to the end of band names. Harmless random words haphazardly thrown together. I got it, I got it: Thimble Spectrum. How's that? I know what a Hospital Ship is, but what's a Sunset Rubdown? I hope it's subversive and offensive whatever it is. Anyways, this guy is in Wolf Parade, you probably know that, and this is his side project that doesn't really hide the music degree, which leads to an often interesting listen, until you realize that sometimes the vocals sound like The Killers or some highly affected, tortured, radio-pop singer. Why doesn't anyone ever get upset about shit like that anymore? Hospital Ships is a lot easier to swallow, less melodrama, and charming enough. What happened to Jagjaguwar ? I thought they were the alt-country label for people with PhD's or something. Fight Bite will be readying themselves on the big stage tonight for their three shows at CMJ next month, which is like a more disorganized and even more sprawling South By Southwest, but who cares? It's in New York.

Iron And Wine/The Swell Season (Palladium): I was wondering why this Swell Season band was receiving top billing over Iron And Wine on all of the advertisements for this show, and then I realized it was that duo that includes a member of The Frames, the same duo that won a fucking Oscar.  Yeah, just like Three Six Mafia. Elliott Smith paved the way for indie folk at The Academy Awards, though these two actually starred in the movie they scored. It's easy to understand why this music goes over well with the understated foreign film loving set, and though it's not really something I'd listen to, it's loads better than Iron And Wine, an act that almost resulted in a fistfight between SR and myself. Oh, and you'll pay handsomely to see these A-listers, about thirty five bucks.

My first college roommate, who was a coke dealing metal-head, would get really mad when I played either Sonic Youth or Husker Du. He said they were the right amount of loud, but too sloppy to be truly heavy. He played me Saxon's Denim and Leather to right my ways. It only took 19 years for me to realize that we were both right.

someone recently suggested that I was a scenester. a scenester hobnobber.

for a person who abhors that particular word (scene), I found it ironic.

wait, did I use that correctly? ironic?

but seriously, what is scenester, anyhow?

this isn't some passive aggressive post on my part, promise. but I'm seriously trying to understand this shit. I always understood that word to be somewhat parasitic, and specifically non causative. both things I would just die to be guilty of.

last I looked, I don't use ironic accessories, or have ironic clothing, or even any ironic hawaiian shirts...or shucks.

so, help me define this so we can straighten out some poor kid's judgement. call me out if you have to.

I wouldn't call it either of those...
I'm in the band, so I won't blow any smoke up your ass..
but I don't think any two of our songs have 3 chords in common...
and for the 15 minutes or so we played last night, maybe about 2 minutes of it was in 4/4......
so definitely not in the punk genre.....but I wouldn't
label it myself....that's suicide for a band....
the two most interesting comparison's I've gotten:
one guy called it "Far on crack"
and one chick told me she thought "at the drive-in meets metallica"..I was kind-of offended by the metallica reference...there aren't any noodling solos.....maybe I'll get a new amp...I feel all dirty now....

haven't thought about when we'll play again yet...last night was sort of a test-run @ the open mic thing....

If they still count I'd have to say my favorite denton band is Paperchase...
I'm really starting to like blueprint sea too....the singer's really got an awesome voice....& the guitar player kind-of makes me want to give up & play maracas or something....
hmm...I saw Burnt Sienna the other night...not usually my style, but I really liked them...it was an interesting change from what I normally see around here....

I just wanna know why i'm called a "hot topic girl" and why you think i'm irritating, when most people tell me they can't hear me and they need to turn up the vocals... on a side note, i know my voice is irritating (i thought that was the point?) Haven't you ever listened to X-Ray Specs or Crass? Maybe youre just mad cuz you are not in a shitty band too? also, if you think i'm irritating, why the fuck do you wanna know when we are playing again? oh, and if you do come, will you heckle me? i love hecklers, and i definately deserve someone to yell at me, and if you don't like us, i would love for you to come and heckle me! Please?
