Weekender

FRIDAY
Peaking Lights/Rival Gang/Florene/Bryce Isbell/Lil Foot (Majestic Dwelling of Doom, former 8th Continent, Denton): I've had the chance to listen to Peaking Lights several times this week, and I've been very impressed with what I've heard.  In fact, I'm surprised this group isn't a much bigger deal on ye ole MP3 blog circuit these days.  They are in the process of releasing some work on the respected Fuck It Tapes label, and their sound is really quite pleasant-- mixing influences from all over the place, everything from Bibio to Animal Collective to Pearls Before Swine to various noise collage artists, the group creates a quiet, elegant and dream-like echo that might remind you of what some of your favorite softer music sounds like as you doze off.  I suppose you could literally call this electro-acoustic music, because it does seem to be equal parts electronic and acoustic based songwriting, but really, at its core its folk pop mixed perfectly with sound collage and quiet drone, leading to a wonderful atmosphere that might be perfect for our first real winter evening.  The rest of the line up is quite solid too.  Majestic Dwelling is where the 8th Continent used to be, 731 Texas St. in Denton.  

Dub Assembly feat. Martyn (Green Elephant): Another edition of Dub Assembly is sure to be as solid as usual, with Dallas' own Jason Mundo on the decks after a successful European tour over the summer.  DC's Martyn will headline, leaning towards the poppier side of Dubstep, drum n bass and heady hip hop a la Flying Lotus, who he has remixed in the past.  Very solid stuff that will sound fantastic on Green Elephant's obscene sound system.  

King Khan and BBQ Show (The Loft): King Kahn joins up with another contemporary garage legend, Mark Sultan.  I caught these guys about a year ago up in Denton and their minimal stage set up absolutely does not disappoint or limit the punch they pack.  Not sure about an opening act for this because I can't find one listed, but I'd be happy just seeing them myself.   

Fizzy Dino Pop/Whoa! Coder/So Juicy/Ops/Super Robocandytron (J&Js): Fizzy Dino Pop's spazzy 8 bit dance music might remind you of groups like Crystal Castles, Boys Noize or even the more heavily electro moments of the Death Set or Japanther, but the guy really seems to be on to something all his own here, and it is quite good.  Locals Whoa! Coder sort of operate on a more hardcore based, Eats Tapes level, and it works for them as well, particularly when they let a bit of their house and r&b influences shine through, such as on demo "Feather Your Bangs" on their Myspace page.  Solid collection of relatively overlooked local electro groups, should be fun.  

Of Montreal/Icy Demons (House of Blues):  Everyone at WSJR HQ really hates Of Montreal except for me.  I can totally see why I stand alone on this one, what with Kevin Barnes' strange rantings on capitalism and highly inconsistent output, but hey, when he's on he's on, and his latest record, Skeletal Lamping, has a few more gems to add to his list of triumphs.  And PS, as much as you might not expect it, Of Montreal is actually very good live.  Who woulda thought?  Also, you might want to get there early for Icy Demons, especially if you're a fan of groups like Skeletons.    

Uptown Fridays with Select (Zubar): I saw Select describe this night as a "non hipster dance party."  Thank god.  

Envy Model Search feat. Astronautalis/The Bright/Pikhasso (Granada Theater): Model search for Envy magazine?  Ok.  I'll just pretend that I went and like tons of girls talked to me and stuff.  Hey, I can even pretend to like The Bright and stuff too if necessary, even if they fucking do a "sexy" cover "Kashmir."  Who the fuck does that?

Prince William/Keith P (The Lounge): I haven't heard anything else about this show other than the fact that it is listed on various sites, so if this isn't going on anymore, someone let us know in the comments, will ya?

Stumptone/Nervous Curtains/Jack with One Eye (Lola's)

SATURDAY

Nouns Group/Shiny Around the Edges/Darktown Strutters/The Make Believers (Hailey's)

The Theater Fire (J&JS)

Power Trip/Decades/Coptic Times/(1919 Hemphill)


SUNDAY

Method Man/Redman/Termanology (House of Blues)

Saturday, 11/5
1314 Austin Street

Things start up about 4:30 or 5pm in Denton with BBQ (something about turkeys, chickens, briskets, etc. along with some of Billy Myatt's famous vegan chili!) that's open to anyone. Feel free to bring side dishes, definitely bring your own beer. A little later things get going with the music. No band order, but expect to hear the following:

Tang Lung (new project must hear)
2Mai
The Diamond Age
Kaboom!
Curvette

According to Mr. Myatt, music will get started around 7:30 or 8pm if enough people are there for the BBQ, and if not, then 9:30 or 10 it will be.

I can understand how a lot of WSJR people don't like of Montreal. I think it has something to do them with not liking to have fun at live shows. Yeah I'm pretty sure that's it!

I like Of Montreal. I have to admit though it is a guilty pleasure. Of Montreal at the very least is cheesy but I still like it. I am interested in the live show but not enough to pay 20 bucks for it. I would never list them as some astounding original work, but I think it is enjoyable.

1:23 - think about what you're saying. Isn't a band who records their music or plays a show telling you that you should listen to their music? And if they're heard by someone (critic/blogger/fan/whatever) who spreads the word about their music, and you hear about it in this way, does that really mean that you don't appreciate music appropriately, or is it still possible to form your own opinion on their music? Hell, isn't that the way you end up forming opinions on the critics and bloggers themselves, by comparing and contrasting their likes and dislikes with your own? I'm curious to hear your take on what appropriate music appreciation entails, kyle/1:14/1:16/1:18/1:23/1:25.

438-- I'm really disappointed that we missed Roy Davis Jr. too because the guy is a legend. Unfortunately , its sometimes a little harder for us to find out about some of the dance events going on in the city because the promotional channels don't always reach us the way that rock, indie and experimental do. We are always looking for house stuff, etc., but sometimes we miss it. We try our best, and if you'd ever like us to spread the word about a great show like that, feel free to contact us or leave a comment. Thanks.
