It List: Thursday

Designer Drugs/The Party (the Loft): Iheartcomix approved Philadelphia based DJ duo Designer Drugs will take over the Loft this evening, just at the time when both their popularity and hip factor are rising about as fast as they are ever likely to again. Not a dis, just the way dance music always has been and always will be. Anyway, they have a solid batch of remixes circulating around the blogosphere these days, and much of their material seems to take root in the early 90's rave/post acid house/hard house sound that has suddenly become all the rage this year, much like the club kid clothes that everyone expected to go away but never actually did. Should be a pretty good time if you enjoy a mostly poppy DJ set with touches of the aforementioned old school, and really, almost everyone does.

Devin the Dude/Coughee Brothaz/Bavu Blakes (Granada Theater): Houston legend that really needs no introduction, right? Any dude you've ever known who has been pulled over and busted for weed will probably be at this show, and why shouldn't they be?

Neil Diamond (American Airlines Center)

Riverboat Gamblers/Astronautalis/On After Dark (Rubber Gloves): I'll give anyone five dollars if they can explain to me why anyone ever did or ever should give a shit about the Riverboat Gamblers. They're like that Fucked Up band minus the things that don't make them completely terrible. But anyway, like many shows I hate, I'm sure this one will be packed.

Bridge and Tunnel/O Pioneers/County Lines/Kids of Cons (1919 Hemphill): Starts around 6pm, so if you wanna get there, you better go there.

80's Night with DJG (Hailey's)

most shows at 1919 start at 8:pm. I usually write 7:pm on the fliers so people get there at 8:pm. the doors are usually open at 6:pm. Unless i'm still at home writing a message on a message board at 5:46pm.

yeah actually dada was great last night. nervous curtains are always solid but the rest of the bill was even better imo. but dada has been having a lot of good shows lately, i don't know what the hell he is talking about.
