It List: Monday


Remember that announcement we promised for today? Well it is still coming, but you might just have to wait until later tonight, so check back wit us. Shows:

Magnolia Electric Co/David Vandervelde/Tre Orsi (Rubber Gloves): Jason Molina's Magnolia Electric Co. has certainly built quite a loyal audience over the years, and you can be sure that these guys will be a hit with the Denton folksy rootsy dudesy dudes, even on a Monday night. That isn't necessarily a bad thing, of course, and for what Molina is trying to do, he is really quite good-- very straight forward, "No Depression" style alterna-roots rock, anchored by very solid, scruffy vocals and competent playing. It's nothing that Uncle Tupelo, Son Volt or Will Johnson hadn't already done a decade ago or more, but such things don't seem to matter too much with music like this, especially considering that Will Johnson and Uncle Tupelo certainly weren't doing anything that countless other artists hadn't been doing for generations before them. Vandervelde seems to be a hipster version of all the aforementioned stuff mixed with some glam rock influences and harder edged "southern rock" sounds, as well as some hip 70's AM radio singer/songwriter stuff. I think I'm just shallow enough to like his material better than that of the headliners, and way more than I thought I did when I woke up this morning.

Halloween Covers Show (1919 Hemphill): A variety of bands take the stage at Hemphill tonight for what I believe is an annual event over there this time of year-- the Halloween Covers show. You'll have Dead Ramones as Circle Jerks, Just Like Kevin as the Cure, Blank Blank as Early Lines and folks from Caddis and Neighborhood Villain as Bad Religion. Should be good.

Cool Out (The Cavern): There is a Melissa having a birthday party at this thing. Line starts around the corner, dudes.

Sometimes, when you fart, tiny particles of feces actually float through the air and land on your face.

Just sayin'...
