Weekender

Before we head up to Denton to drink all the beer before you guys get there, we thought we'd tell you about some of the 8.2 million shows happening this weekend.  We don't have time to talk a whole hell of a lot today, but now that we're done with the label launch and the show planning, you can expect a major return to hard hitting local music journalism next week.  Like reviews and feature articles and stuff.  Cool?  Here's why I hate live music:


FRIDAY

We Shot J.R. Records Party feat. Fight Bite/Darktown Strutters/Orange Coax/Secret Bangs/Animal Forces/Shane English DJ Set (Time Bandits Vintage):  You already know that this is a free show with free drinks, and you should already know is that this is actually taking place in the lot behind Time Bandits, so if you show up in front of Time Bandits on the square, you'll need to take your ass around back to hear this totally kick ass music.  Got it?  Also, we scheduled this to start at 9pm, but since we have a pretty full line up, we are open to starting it a bit earlier (as early as 830) if enough people show up early.  So, if you want this to start earlier, just show up earlier and make your voice heard!  It's like voting except we give even less of a fuck about what you think.  Oh, and you'll be able to purchase Fight Bite's new 7 inch at the party for $5.... help us move out of our moms' basements and buy one today!

Deerhoof/Experimental Dental School/Flying/Hawnay Troof (Granada):  The last time I saw Deerhoof live, they played in the Tea Room and enforced their very own smoking ban in a club that typically allowed smoking.  Who the fuck do these San Francisco liberals think they are coming down here and telling us when we can and can't smoke?  Ok, you're gonna be in a club, and you might get a little smoke in your very creative and talented lungs.  Boo hoo.  Fucking deal with it.   I'm about as far left as a person can get politically, but sometimes I can really see why conservatives think these people hate freedom.  Anyway, aside from said obnoxiousness, I really enjoy all the bands playing, with the possible exception of the goofy noise hop of Hawnay Troof, and I'm not even sure that I really hate them.  Oh wait, I just heard their cover of "Hollarback Girl," and now I'm pretty sure I do hate them.  Anyway, my favorite parts of most Deerhoof songs are surprisingly the most traditional, classic rockish.  I guess the more strange, abstract songwriting that surrounds Deerhoof's meatier riffs make them so much more of a pay off when they actually happen.  Get there early for the excellent Experimental Dental School as well.  

The Pharmacy/Death to the Doomriders/Tides (1919 Hemphill): Pretty big grab for Hemphill, as the Pharmacy have spent the past couple months building quite a name for themselves on tour and the web.  

Bishop Allen/An Horse/Electric Owls (Hailey's)

...And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead/When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth/Dead Twins (Club Dada): The argument around here today has been whether Trail of Dead 1) have sucked for the past 6 years or 2) have always sucked.  Guess who was on which side!

Deep Snapper/White Drugs/Drink to Victory (the Lounge)


SATURDAY

Diplo/Abe Vigoda/Boy 8 Bit/Telepathe (the Loft): Go see this Mad Decent show not only for the great variety of sounds or so that you can take a listen to the guy who basically started every major hipster dance trend of the past five years (MIA, reggaeton, Santogold, etc.), but also to catch the much buzzed about Telepathe, who might just be worthy of the praise they've been getting lately.  Also, if you haven't already, you should really check out Diplo's latest Top Ranking mix tape with Santogold.  

Florene/Hotel Hotel/The Chimeneas/Dirty Water Disease (J&Js)

Calexico/Bowerbirds/The Acorn (Granada)

Guy Klucevsek (Ft. Worth Modern, 2pm): Here is some info.

SUNDAY

Parts and Labor/True Widow/Dogme 95 (the Lounge): Free show.

Los Llamarada/Orange Coax/Fungi Girls/Wu Fru De Lu (Muscle Beach, 907 Denton St., Denton)

Martin Iles Videos (Dan's Silverleaf): This free show starts at 1030PM and will feature videos selected by Martin Iles.  Here is what he'll be showing--

Unknown Denton Parades
Courtesy of the Denton Public Library, 1940s (11 min.)

Transferred from 8mm film, this film footage features WWIl-era parades and public events surrounding the downtown square in Denton, Texas. Includes a parade of white clad physicians, a monkey riding a horse, a dancing donkey, and appearances by Roy Rogers and Gabby Hayes.

With music selections from "I Don't Feel at Home in This World Anymore" (Mississippi Records).

Doin' Time in Times Square
Charlie Ahearn, 1992 (39 min.)

"Doin' Time in Times Square documents the view and action outside Charlie Ahearn's 43rd Street apartment window from 1981 to 1983. Ahearn, whose 1983 film Wild Style was a cult hip hop hit, was 'blessed' with a generous view of the sleaze emporiums up Eighth Avenue and down 43rd. His window provides a view into midtown New York's street brutality in the dark years before it was 'cleaned up'... capturing rip-offs, drug sales, police stake-outs and fist fights."

And This Is Free
Mike Shea, 1964 (50 min.)

"During its heyday in the early to mid-1900s, the Maxwell Street Market area represented one of the most fascinating chapters in American urban history. People congregated there by the thousands to shop for bargains in junk stores and on pushcarts... They went, too, for the street musicians, hucksters, rousing preachers, and street entertainers."

Mike Shea's only film, "And This Is Free" was recorded over sixteen Sundays on Maxwell Street in 1964.

Atmosphere/Abstract Rude/Blueprint/Dj Rare Groove (House of Blues)

it was ok. stonedranger was really drunk and beligerent, flashing his peen & pissing off the balcony onto the go-go dancing trannies. meanwhile, defensive listening "nodded off" in the bushes with the junkie sax player.
later, cliffnotes set pete freedman's car on fire, and we had an impromptu nude weenie roast. we froze our nuts off.

anyway...

typical wsjr shit.

I "nodded off" in the bushes once when I was 18 with a guy that looked like Slash. Real "high"point in my youth. The leaves and branches did nothing for my hair.

Trail of Dead was pretty interesting at Dada.

Odd coincidence that the Fire Marshall and TABC would both show up twenty minutes apart.

Think they're both Trail of Dead fans?
