It List: Monday

Well, this article pretty much sums up what Thanksgiving week is all about for me most years... what do you guys usually during festive Holidays like this? Anyway, we'll be taking a couple days off later this week (WED AND THU), but we are going to try to have a few cool things for you before we go, especially tomorrow if we can pull it off. Anyway, here is stuff:

Cool Out (The Cavern)

Soul Glow Monday with Young Doc Gooden (Hailey's)
Top Secret Robot Alliance/The Hormones Limited/Bueno Tornado/Giggle Party (The Lounge-- FREE): This free Parade of Flesh show at the Lounge is a little bit silly, but I guess thats why it's free. Aside from both having absolutely terrible band names, Hormones Limited and Bueno Tornado both share the distinction of sounding like bands clearly fronted by teenagers raised on a steady diet of post-hardcore. Unfortunately, neither of their diets have done them many favors thus far, and maybe it's the fact that I'm not paying attention, but I really can't tell these two bands apart. I'm not going to sit here and pick on kids (if these are in fact kids, I couldn't really tell), but I'd skip these for now. I think you'll have much better luck with Giggle Party's keyboard heavy, anthemic pop punk-- its actually quite solid and easily the best thing on this bill tonight, particularly if you're a fan of that Wham City sound. Top Secret Robot Alliance is like Lazer for English lit majors, but fortunately, I took enough philosophy classes to be satisfied with sitting at home and staring at a wall.

none of their diets have done them any favors? jeez dude, they've barely even started gigging. maybe you could give them a few gigs before you start ripping on them.

That's why I said "thus far," and noted that I wasn't going to pick on them anymore.

haha but that's like me going to your place of employment 5 minutes after you get to work and being like "well, well, well.... i see you haven't really gotten any work done thus far." That wouldn't be very fair, right?

i dont really see the point of detracting anyone from going to a free show, other than just to comment on ones own pretentious taste, but that last line was awesome.

i thought the crowd was great, but not many we shot jr readers: everyone was friendly and not bitter, OOPS, people are only rude and vindictive when posting anonymously on the internet.
