It List: Monday

The Death Set/PVC Street Gang/Sydney Confirm/Tommy Boy (The Lounge): First of all, this show is completely FREE for everyone 21 and up, so even if you aren't too sure about the bands, you could at least give it a shot. Of course, I can think of a couple people on the WSJR staff who probably wouldn't go to this even if someone paid them, and I'm not really exaggerating. The Death Set has been something of a source of controversy around here for several months-- I like them, DL hates them, and no one else really seems to care either way. It seems that the main accusation that gets lobbed at the group is that they are some sort of Japanther rip off, and while the stylistic similarities are certainly apparent on some levels, it seems a bit trite to accuse one band of stealing pop punk aesthetic from another band. Ok, maybe they steal a bit more than that from Japanther sometimes, but really, The Death Set is a much more straight forward pop proposition than Japanther, and if they didn't hold their own on stage, record, or otherwise, then the critics might have a point. But anyone who has seen the Death Set live knows that this just isn't the case. Japanther is a post modern mash up that utilizes, or borrows, from all sorts of source material past and present, so if the Death Set borrows from them, aren't they essentially just doing the exact same thing? I don't know. They were voted best live band in Baltimore or something, so theres always that. Anyway, come early for PVC Street Gang, and even earlier to hear Tommy Boy.

thedeathset show was one of the best shows i've seen in dallas in a long time.
the dallas crowd was actually dancing, interacting and having fun as opposed to just standing there with their arms crossed, nodding their heads trying to look cool. its been 15 years since i've been in a pit and fucking enjoyed hell out of it.

Also, the PVC street gang is the best thing i've seen coming out of dallas in a long fucking time. If you haven't heard them or seen them, give them some of your time as opposed to just reading wsjr and taking their word as gospel.

Dood, if you ate 12 Fuel City tacos then I'd call a Joe The Plumber, pronto.

I was once saw somebody eat eight of them and he had flames and lava comin' out of every orifice.

hipsters in dallas need to get over their obsession with Fuel City Tacos. Just cause you moved into dallas and you think it's cool.

DeathSet is to Japanther and Best Fwends what Black Tie Dynasty is to Interpol.

it ain't the tacos at Fuel City... it's the DIY vibe, the kids in Member's Only jackets DJ'ing breakbeats, the underage chicks drunk on NyQuil, the whole scene.

Kinda makes Denton look like a Sack N Save.
