Weekender

Hey best friends-- I've been a little busy at work this week, so unfortunately, you guys will have to make up many of your own shithead comments for this weekend's set of shows. I'll try my best, though. Here we go:


FRIDAY:

Dr. Dog /Delta Spirit/Seth Kaufman(Lola's): This show is sold out, and it's nice to say that about any quality show, really.

Hamburger Headache with Select/Keith P/Prince William (The Lounge): So far I've heard nothing but complaints about The Lounge-- bad bar service, no credit card machine, expensive drinks, poor sound system, etc., and it really sucks because I think the people who book the place are really trying to take the right kind of chances with their small but compelling Deep Ellum space. These are probably all indications of a business making mistakes as it finds its footing in the community, but I hope they fix some of these problems sooner rather than later. Should be a very solid show tonight as three of the area's best DJs play House, Juke, B'More and more. Some of these Dallas hipster kids could really use a house lesson or two, you know? Not everything is a fucking mash up, ok Gen Y?

Faux Fox/Sydney Confirm/Rival Gang/Gun Gun (Chat Room): This is the first of two CD release shows for Faux Fox this weekend (that makes a total of 23, correct?). I have heard Sydney Confirm sound very solid AND rather terrible at different shows, so I hope they've got the goods tonight because I think they are attempting some ambitious dance material. One of my favorite things about seeing Rival Gang the last time I caught them was watching dudes hit on them as they packed up after their show. "So, you like music, babe? You should check my shit out. It has like the intensity of Rage Against the Machine but it's soft and sweet like fuckin Counting Crowes or some shit." Uh, you DID just see their set, didn't you Von Dutch?

Mom/Blixaboy/Voices And Organs (Swiss House)

SATURDAY:

Mogwai/Fuck Buttons (Granada Theater): I'm sure there aren't a whole lot of people on here that need a history lesson on Mogwai, but that new Fuck Buttons record is very confusing to me. I've listened to it several times, and despite my better judgment, I can't help but thinking of Fuck Buttons as "noise for the masses," you know? Like they're a noise band that my mom wouldn't be offended by. That isn't necessarily a knock against them, but rather an observation on how popular this kind of typically harsh instrumental/electonic music has become over the past few years.

Faux Fox/Darktown Strutters/Gun Gun (Good Records): Early Good Records in store starts at 6 with Gun Gun. Darktown Strutters are one of the better new bands I've seen all year, so I'd make sure to at least get there by 7 to catch them. No one in town is doing anything remotely similar right now. Faux Fox is on at 8.

Morris Day and the Time/Cameo (Nokia): Uh, get some money and take a date to this, you no-style motherfucker. Oh, and even if you aren't familiar with the work of either of these groups, a quick listen will reveal how much of an influence these bands have been on some of the more hip dance music to have emerged in the past few years.

Yatagarasu/Hex Crusher/Ferveur Noir/Alex Atchley/Ashes/Orange Cokes (1919 Hemphill)

Jana Hunter/Lesser Gonzalez Alvarez/Clint Niosi (Rubber Gloves)

Hands Up with DJ Excel and The Party (The Loft)

Evangelicals/Matt Bauer/Dust Congress (the Cavern)

Scarves And Bowties/Laura Palmer/The Tah-Dahs (Amsterdam Bar): This will be Laura Palmer and the Tah Dahs final Dallas show as Palmer and her husband, Tah Dahs' lead singer/guitarist Roy Ivy, head off to Chicago (I believe). Both have a lot of friends in the area, and I'm sure there will be a nice crowd there to send them off, unless it's really rainy and wet and shit. Will they move the show inside if this is the case?

SUNDAY:

Matt and Bubba Kadane of The New Year (Good Records): This will be a DJ set for the New Year's album release party, and it starts at 6pm.  

For Your Pleasure with DJG (Hailey's): 60's and 70's soul, R&B, krautrock and more. Here is a sample of a playlist these guys just sent us:

Bob James – Nautilus (74)
Hank Crawford-Sugar Free (73)
Briag Auger’s Oblivion Express -Light on the Path (70)
Horace Silver –Song for my Father (64)
Art Blakey-Hay no Problemas (62)
Shangri La’s-Great Big Kiss (65)
Johnny Thunders-ask me no questions (78)
Sparks-Bon Voyage (75)
T.Rex-Mambo Sun (71)
Stranglers –Get a grip on yrself (77)
David Bowie-V2-Schneider (77)
Can-Mushroom (71)
Crown Heights Affair-Dreaming a Dream (75)
Augustus Pablo-King Tubby Meets The Rockers Uptown (76)
Toots & the Maytals-Pressure Drop (69)
Weather Report- NonStop Home (73)
Airto-Tombo in 7/4 (73)

God bless Hailey's for keeping the spirit of Wild in the Streets alive on Sunday nights. It's like 80's night for sophisticated young adults. Checked out For Your Pleasure and it definitely does a good job of filling her high heel pumps. And it's way less sweaty than 80's night.

Sadly 4:30pm speaks the truth. But God bless the people at Swiss House for doing what they do. Every show I have seen there has been excellent. Even if the outside/inside ratio is 80/1.

Also Short Attention Span Theater will be doing projections at gloves tonight wha wha. Can some one video tape the Chat Room show please. God bless.

Zanzibar will be playing at 9. We'll be doing two sets/pieces, with a very short break in between.

We'll have copies of our Vanadium Dream CD on Phantom Limb Recordings, available only at shows right now. Artwork/foldout poster by Nevada Hill.

Super special Zanzi lineup featuring kalimba & bassoon & other oddnezzz.

I think one of the dudes from VORVADOSS made some toys for the exhibit.

Mark Farner was the guitar player for Grand Funk Railroad.
Also, in an example of perhaps the best pet name ever, Paul Leary (the Butthole Surfers guitarist) once had a dog named "Mark Farner of Grand Funk Railroad."

I don't find Zappa's humor very funny there fore I don't enjoy his music. I do very very much appreciate the work that he did for freedom of speech issues and the like. But his music gives me a headache. I enjoy listening to John Zorn much more than Zappa.

Lick My Decals Off Baby is one the greatest albums of all time.

thanks chad for your kind words. unfortunately I haven't been able to make it out to For Your Pleasure on sundays yet since i'm living in dallas now & in the 9-5 weekday realm. but judging by our past co-DJ sets and by the playlists they posted, it looks like it'd be one of my fave DJ nights in the 'plex.

i've also been digging wanz' wed. night gig @ the lounge. i've heard some harshness lately about the venue, but i haven't had a bad experience there since they've reopened...drinks seem consistently cheap during the week (that's a lot coming from a 8-yr dentonite), musical selections are good, etc. now if only the fellas outside would stop trying to get my guy friends to buy me roses i'd be completely content.
