It List: Thursday

Weedeater/Little Big Horn/Blood of the Sun/Lychgate/Turbid North (Rubber Gloves): So, lets play a little game. Only those who have never heard Weedeater are allowed to play. What do you think a band called Weedeater signed to Southern Lord might sound like? If you guessed Sabbath stoner rock riffs the size of fucking boulders, then you're correct! You win a free package of Azo to help you pass your upcoming Papa John's drug test with flying colors. Anyway, my little guessing game wasn't mean to be a diss, because really, whether or not they sound like other stoner rock groups doesn't really matter to anyone who would go to this show, right? And furthermore, Weedeater really does this stuff better than the vast majority of bands that cling to the aforementioned genre-- their rough edges and raw power come through quite well on their Myspace page for Christ's sake, so I can't imagine what this will be like live. Pretty weird line up otherwise-- Fort Worth's Blood of the Sun sound like some weird combo of Foghat, the Oak Ridge Boys, and 80's hair metal, and somehow, it doesn't bother me at all. I have no idea why. And although Weedeater will certainly be powerful this evening, I wouldn't be surprised if Denton's Lychgate came off as by far the most frightening and interesting band of the evening-- their harsh noise performance at Wisconsin a few weeks back absolutely killed. I wonder what the male/female ratio will be at this thing tonight?

TOP NOTCH with Sober/Rerog (The Lounge): This is the beginning of a new weekly residency a the Lounge, the new venue that has opened in the space formerly occupied by Darkside Lounge. Sober will be heading Top Notch up each week and will usually add a special guest-- this week you'll be treated to Rerog, a guy who has been DJing in the area for quite some time, most notably with DJ Nature at Rubber Gloves back in 1998 and 99, when Rubber Gloves was BYOB. Those were the days, huh? Wait, what am I talking about? I bet a lot of you couldn't even read back then. Anyway, Rerog will be spinning a lot of 90's west coast and dirty south type of stuff, and he even remarked in his interview over at Central Booking that he's looking forward to playing Keak da Sneak this evening, which is weird since I was actually listening to Keak da Sneak when I read that. Totally trippin's balls, man! Anyway, as we've said in the past, the Lounge occupies a somewhat awkward but somehow comfortable space, and if they can actually get people to party in Deep Ellum for a night, this will be a lot of fun.

"What's the difference between a drum machine and a drummer??"
'You only have to punch a drum machine once to get it to play what you want it to'
