It List: Tuesday

TV On The Radio/Dirtbombs (Lakewood Theater): You know who TV On The Radio is, I don't really think I have to explain it. What I should do is explain why it's at the somewhat unlikely location of the Lakewood Theater, and yet I don't have an explanation for that at all. I know there have been other shows there, but I have heard very little about what it's actually like to see a performance there. I saw Obama's acceptance speech for the Democratic nomination there, and that was pretty exciting, but as far as rock shows go, I just don't know. Seems like it would be expensive no matter what. That guy from TV On The Radio did a bang-up job making that Scarlett Johansson record sound like a cross between a Christmas album and his own band, except better. Dirtbombs have an extensive track record for live shows, as well as the diversity of their releases, and are by far one of the best bands out of Detroit's rather unwelcome garage rock revival earlier in the decade. The lead singer makes Jack White seem like a total joke.

Lover/Wax Museums/Secret Bangs (Bunker Hill)

"Zaireeka"/"Christmas On Mars" at Good Records: I have heard mixed things about this vanity project/movie, but I'm still interested in seeing it. Seems like a nice, cheap way to spend Tuesday night. Here's the schedule, straight from G-Rex:

7-​7:​30pm Keg Recep​tion
7:​30-​8:​30pm Zaire​eka w/ Virtu​al Wayne​ & 5th Disc
8:​30-​9pm 2nd Annua​l Costu​me Conte​st
9-​10:​30pm Chris​tmas On Mars
10:​30-​11pm Exit Music​

Last year we celeb​rated​ the 10th anniv​ersar​y of Zaire​eka by unvei​ling the elusi​ve 5th disc.​ This year we are takin​g it a step furth​er in sever​al ways.​ We are still​ encou​ragin​g peopl​e to bring​ in their​ stere​os and copie​s of Zaire​eka but we will have PA on hand for each of the 5 discs​ to make sure they are good and extra​ loud.​ Also we will be scree​ning "​Chris​tmas On Mars"​ at the concl​usion​ of our Zaire​eka exper​iment​.​ Costu​mes are again​ encou​raged​ as we will be holdi​ng our 2nd annua​l costu​me conte​st.​ Pleas​e bring​ a bean bag or foldi​ng chair​ of some sort so you can get comfy​ and truly​ enjoy​ your liste​ning and viewi​ng exper​ience​.​ A keg of adult​ libat​ions will also be on hand to get you in that Hallo​ween spiri​t so to speak​.​

Dreaming Dead/Hyperion/Psychiatric Regurgitation (Rubber Gloves): The lead singer of Dreaming Dead has a truly evil sounding voice. Pretty killer.  

Disqo Disco (Fallout Lounge)

Oh My God/We Are Villains (Hailey's)

When was this posted?

3 pm? Anybody else crazy enough to plan their evening's activities more than a few hours in advance?

Perhaps you could consider an "e-mail alert" when you decide to get around to posting? I know you have jobs and stuff but shit...

the dirtbombs sucked ass. Their lead singer is nothing to Jack White other than the fact that he looked like a giant with a guitar.
