So, I was thinking, if the entire North Texas Music community was the cast of "Wedding Crashers", here's what we're looking at:

Vince Vaughan's character "Jeremy Grey" is all of the Dallas bands with day jobs who are just in it to get laid; your Black Tie Dynasty, The Crash That Took Me, Mic The Tiger, Old 97's, etc...

Owen Wilson's character "John Beckwith" is all of your Dallas bands who are gimmicky and cute; your Bowling For Soup, Forever the Sickest Kids, Polyphonic Spree, etc...

Rachel McAdams character "Claire Cleary" is all of the Dallas Arts Magnet-type female singers; Norah Jones, Erykah Badu, Edie Brickell, St. Vincent, Sarah Jaffee, Emily Elbert, etc...

Isla Fisher's character "Gloria Cleary" is all the Dallas female singers are "Stage 5 clingers": Jessica Simpson, Ashlee Simpson, LeAnn Rimes, etc...

Bradley Coopers's "Sack" character is Dallas Observer music editor Pete Freedman.

Christoher Walken's "Secretary William Cleary" character is Jeff Liles.

Jane Seymour's "Kathleen Cleary" is Tami Thomsen from Kirtland Records.

Henry Gibson's "Father O'Neil" is Russell Hobbs from The Door.

Ron Canada's "Randolph" is We Shot Jr.

And last but not least, Keir O'Donnell's "Todd Cleary" (the gay son who paints naked pictures of Vince Vaughan) is the entire Denton music scene.

How come the 'kinda' cool shit is so decentralized like it is in Dallas but not in Austin? In Austin I can walk from bar to bar, venue to venue along one street and do this 4 times over seeing different bands while walking through thick foot traffic. Why can't Dallas do this? It a bigger city right? If I go to the lounge on elm there is no fucking action outside or near it whatso ever. I'm not trying to start a dallas vs austin thing because thats lame but im just generally curious. Not looking to argue, just you know curious. Thanks.

Todd Cleary is Sean Kirkpatrick.

William Cleary is Robert Wilonsky.

"Sack" is Jackopierce.

Anonymous your answer, from my observation said...

11:40 - Everything has pretty much closed. All those buildings with "no action" used to have action about a decade ago. Whether that was cool action is debatable.

Since then, radio went down the shitter even further, and there is virtually no worthy coverage of local bands(present blog excluded). So the masses of Dallas no longer pay attention to music, unless it's American Idol.

Good bands only come through on weekdays, when the populace either doesn't attend, and/or doesn't drink. So those shows are a bore, and the band doesn't return. Therefore clubs have a choice between local and cover bands on the weekends. No local bands promote their shows, so no one comes out, and the clubs keep closing.

Somewhat related - Denton is only active because it's a college town, and they get fresh batch of 18 year olds every year. Having a large population of folks between 18 and 25 helps any scene(unless they go to SMU...those people are worthless).

So many people end up abandoning the scene around their mid to late 20's. Over half of the people reading this right now will. If you notice, most of the Dallas scene is older, and they are the few that stuck around.

within 100 yards of the lounge elm street you have club dada, kettle gallery, space gallery and the curtain club. with a quarter mile you have the door, adair's all good cafe, sankofa, and a 7-11 store.

and, of course, three miles away is FUEL CITY.

Wow I Read YAFMOs (12:39) post and just thought I should move to Vermont and just start choppin' wood and feeding water birds rye. I'm way too old to be here so I'll simply abandon the scene. Watch my majestic wings align with the stars. Poot!

Anonymous stonedranger said...

Kettle and Space aren't venues and usually aren't open at night. Dada has a rare good show but is usually extremely depressing, especially on week days. The Door is a christian shit hole, all good closes early, Curtain Club is one of the worst places ever, and 7-11 is pretty sweet, but its kind of a far walk through an empty neighborhood.

Thanks SR, and everyone else for clearing up any debate about the lack of venues in Dallas.

Now what??? We've obviously got at least a small group of people (or large depending on the variety of screen-names one might post under) that peruse this blog and other local sources about music.

Maybe we can do something productive and try to figure out some largely unused or previously-untapped area. (ie: NOT Deep Ellum, Expo Park, Lower Greenville, Some other city...) to start having shows for people that actually listen to the music.

Invitation-Only house parties and playing at Art Galleries is great and all but we need a new spot that won't be turned into Lofts, or other Urban-Upscale Living and Shopping areas, like NOW!!!

Is Oak Cliff too far?? Shit, I dunno...

the overwhelming majority of those involved in denton music are way over 18

Anonymous stonedranger said...

I'm thinking that eventually (over the next five years) a lot of the action will move down south to oak cliff. It would be really exciting if a new neighborhood for shows and things of cultural value would emerge, but people with a little money would have to be convinced that it was worth a series of small investments. I wonder where this might be? I could see little spots popping up around Peak and Bryan, for example.

Look, you guys just need to admit that it's time for something new and mind-blowing.

I know Fuel City is a gas station; that's beside the point. It's a place where we can meet. Where we can buy beer and eat tacos. They also have the hot buttered corn in a cup shit that is just off the chain.

It's all we need to keep the scene going. Let's try it without bands or music for a while.

5:54 - To oddly paraphrase Matthew McConaughey regarding scenesters: "I get older, and they stay the same age". People move on or move away, or have kids and stop going out. Some just feel too damn old. You don't have to do a poll or be a prophet to see this shit at almost every show.

I'm old as shit, work a day-job, have no kids yet I struggle to go to the shows that I think will be worth it due to the current state of live music in Dallas.

I've been to the Pasttime Tavern to see one of the best/never-mentioned local bands: The Blackouts and I plan to go back, BUT we should all still try to come up with an alternative as well.

I'd love to think we could pull off something more like Secret HQ, Good/Bad Art Collective in Dallas. Sloppyworld shouldn't have gone away, but then again...Expo will soon be a memory.

Who's good at organizing, raising money and has a lot of time on their hands?

Not it!!!

However I would love to see something show up in the bryan/peak area. There is a bar that just closed at gaston and peak, that could possibly work, though it would need to be fumigated. It's right near some new stuff going up, so I have no idea if they are going to tear it down or not.

Without trying to compare banannas and cherries, I will say this: The ratio of promoters, party droppers, name throwers, critics, big talking event planners vs music creators seems to be much higher in Dallas than everywhere else in Texas. If we're talking about local music, I think that's something to think about. Everybody wants to slap their name on something. Since when do people give a ratz ass who booked a damn show?

Just pick up your instruments and start playing or just look up one of the many interesting things going on most every day and night somewhere in this gigantic metroplex, get off your ass, lose a little sleep and have some fun! Otherwise, watch a movie, read a book, talk to your friends on the phone and have some fun! Whatever, but for Krist's sake live somewhere besides this blog! Things have not really changed that much in DFW. If anything, it's better than ever! I'll check back with yall next year to see if your big redevelopment plan is any less boring.
