It List: New Year's Eve
I'm not going to waste too much time with descriptions, since- A. The nature of a NYE performance is that people often are familiar with your music. AND B. WSJR has a lot of plans that actually don't involve Dallas, and as such, we are running a little behind, hair still wet, car honking outside. Take care and be safe, thanks. DL
Vega/Damaged Goods/Gazelles/Villains (Hailey's): It's crazy to think that Damaged Goods has gone from playing the Fra House a couple of months ago to having shows booked in London and Paris. Pretty amazing actually, and we are very happy for them. Oh, and it's always good when Mr. Palomo is in town.
Disqo Disco/Ishi/Sydney Confirm/Schwa/Keith P (The Cavern): Wait, Disqo Disco AND Sydney Confirm? Won't that be kind of overkill, like the scene in "Stop Making Sense" where they play "Genius Of Love?"
Fischerspooner (Lizard Lounge): I know a lot of people that still want to hang this group for their cover of "The 15th." But since this is a DJ set, maybe you'll just hear the original.
Toadies/Lions/Boom Boom Box/Tendril (Ridglea Theater): I'm not much for the Toadies, but I'm interested in hearing this Boom Boom Box band, with members of Ghostcar and Falkon.
Eldridge Meatcleaver (The Lounge): Here's a brief rundown of the event from Wanz: We will be playing classic soul and garage from The Monks, The Sonics, Booker T & the MG's, Otis Redding, Carla & Rufus, A Certain Ratio("Shack up"), Nina Simone, The Small Faces, The Litter, Serge Gainsbourg, France Gall, Wilson Pickett and much much more.
The band features Ian Hamilton and Mila(Jack with One Eye), Guyton Sanders, Daniel Dacus, Wanz Dover, Ineka Guerra(The Frenz), and Ross(from Tiger Moth).
Unit 21/Tolar/Akkolyte/Orange Coax/Rocket For Ethiopia/Division Of Power (Exploding House): This would be your best bet in Fort Worth, if not anywhere. A show just overflowing with various types of hardcore: weirdo hardcore, surf-tinged hardcore, and hardcore hardcore.
