Weekender

FRIDAY

Gonzalez Brothers with Sarah Alexander, Nevada Hill and Bobby Taylor (Kettle Art, 9PM): Kicking off at 9pm, this all star cast of musicians will play on the last evening of the eNeRGy exhibit at Kettle Art, and it will be your last chance to pick up the accompanying book featuring the work of artists Sergio Garcia, Richard Ross, and Mark Nelson. There will be a book signing at 8:00 PM and music at 9:30 featuring the Gonzalez Brothers accompanied by Bobby Coaxe, Nevada Hill, and Sarah Alexander. Considering that these are some of the most extreme and unconventional local musicians currently playing, or musicians period, that I know of, it should be an expectedly intense performance and well worth your time.

El Ten Eleven/ The Boat Lights/Slider Pines (the Cavern)

Fungi Girls/Scoff/Electric Vengeance (Cleburne Skateland): Cleburne Skateland.... shit, I wonder what that place is like? I can just picture James Van der Beek saying "I don't want your life" in his fake Texas accent while a bunch of evangelical Christians skate around in circles wondering aloud whether any of tonight's bands feature any "queers." I hope they do, because that shit would be funny. Anyway, we first noticed Cleburne's Fungi Girls a few weeks ago when they were playing a show in Denton, and we really liked what we heard, like a lot.  Like, take a listen to the insanely catchy lo-fi slop punk of "Into the Cosmos," available on their Myspace page.  That song alone already makes me think that they could end up being one of my favorite bands in the area.  I know this shit's in Cleburne, but it might be the best reason you'll ever have to go out there.  Fun fact-- did you know that Cleburne had the exact same population as Dallas in 1900?  Anyway, Fungi Girls.  Keep your eye on them.  

Uptown Fridays with Select (Zubar)

Swedish Teens/Stymie/The Uptown Bums/Ian Bangs (Rubber Gloves): This is the Swedish Teens CD release party, but the Uptown Bums are the real highlight here.  

Stumptone/The Unbearables/New Science Projects (Lola's)

SATURDAY

Viking Moses/Golden Ghost/Daniel Bass (Muscle Beach, 907 Denton St.): Nice show for Muscle Beach this weekend.  Viking Moses is one of those groups that actually pulls off clever, quiet experimental folk (take notes, Denton bands) with a sound that might remind listeners of Adrian Orange, Little Wings, and even the softer moments of Karl Blau.  So basically, PacNW stuff with a touch of southern soul.  The group first made a name for themselves in 2004 with an appearance on Devendra Banhart's Golden Apples of the Sun compilation, which came to be the defining document of what later became known as "freak folk."  Fortunately, Viking Moses stands the test of time a lot better than their freak folkie Ms. Havisham, and seeing them at a small house like this is certainly the right way to do it.  

Hands Up with Dj A1 (the Loft)

The Faith/Blixaboy/Farah (Rubber Gloves)

Magnets/Eyes, Wings and Many Other Things (Mountain House, 5320 Tremont):  This is Swiss House Evan Horn's new pad.  The show is free, and guy usually has pretty good parties... even when the bands are a little... eh?  Oh, and Eyes Wings and Many other Things?  Worst band name of the week!  However, they are clearly the better band on this bill.  

The Theater Fire/Peter and the Wolf/Some Say Leland (Chat Room): I kinda like Peter and the Wolf, even though I don't really want to.  

Decemberfest feat. Gun Gun/Handbrake/Isaac Hoskins/Kaboom/Shiny Around the Edges/Rival Gang (Dan's Silverleaf): Shiny Around The Edges are the organizers of this annual showcase that includes baked goods from a group of folks that can barely restring a guitar. Just joking, Kaboom! Actually, most of the food last year was surprisingly great. Though this is a tightly packed show with bands going on at 9:30 sharp all the way until one in the morning, I trust that nobody but SATE front-couple Jenny and Mike Seman are more capable of getting this whole thing to run in a timely fashion. This diverse show boasts a good lineup with an equally good cause: The Denton Community Food Center. On a purely selfish note,I hope to see some Red Velvet or Hummingbird Cake but will probably eat one of everything no matter what. Schedule is as follows:

9:30 Gun Gun 
10:15 Handbrake
10:45 Isaac Hoskins
11:30 Kaboom 
12:15 Shiny Around the Edges 
1:00 Rival Gang

Denton Community Food Center

Art Conspiracy 4 with Sober/Mount Righteous/ATON/Chameleon Chamber Group (3011 Guiden Ln.): I wonder if the Observer will write a review of this show where they describe Mount Righteous as "joyous."  To quote Bruce McCulloch, "FUCK HAPPY."  

SUNDAY

the Theater Fire/Peter and the Wolf/Delmore Pilcrow (Muscle Beach)

But their music is god awful. Learn to tune your guitars/practice once a month at least, for the sake off all of us who paid to get into the club. I will never understand how these bands of talentless bastards have the mononic notion to spend all their parents money on show flyers for shows which they 1)don't practice for and 2)are too drunk to get on stage, let alone sing/play on key for. And it's doubly insulting when the members of the same band get on a computer blog and anonymously talk their own fucking band up. Fucking l-o-s-e-r-s.

The funny thing is that you're eletists with no real purpose.

The real joke in the end for all of you is if you only would have gone by your true names you would have more true friends and, shit, a more true, real life in the long run. It's almost sad. Almost.

And why don't I go by my true name, you may ask? Because the ONLY reason I am on here is to teach you crooked fuckers how to make my generation shine. North Texas has a huge stain on it now, due mostly in part to this shitty, shitty blog.

Yes, play nice. Please. Please. Because it reflects on me. It reflects on your friends(I was kidding before, i'm sure you have a few friends). Your rude and immature behavior adds up and makes Dallas/Denton/Ft. Worth look like a haven for artless shittalkers. That's what this blog is. It's artless. It's the antithesis of artistic. From the red and white(White Stripes ruined red and white a few years back for everyone, fellas) backround to the name(blank for anonymous) ploy to ensure that everyone on here talks as much bullshit as humanly digestibly possible.

But anyways, how it looks isn't nearly as bad as how it reflects. Goodnight.

But there is brutal truth and then there is just being plain brutal because no one is there to call you out on it. It still hurts the community, whether or not we know who really said it or not.

Honestly, I don't know why exactly people on here are so mean. That's the part thjat stumps me. Have they been injecting some new kind of hyper-agressive steroid in the water in Texas for the past few years, cuz I swear, people in Denton(at least) were not even nearly as mean as they have become in the last few years. Is it George Bush that's pissed all of you off or what? It's very troubling to me, because what was a pretty positive, artistic community has now become one of the most shittalkingest towns this side of the Mississippi.

And their door people are pricks too, like that tattoed white voodoo guy, Tiny or Stubbs or whatever the fuck. Brett and Heather are the worst! Just snide drunks who overcharge the door so they can buy more shots. That place is well known for ripping off bands, too.

You people shitting on Dan's is yet another case of your shitting where you eat. Don't shit where you eat and play.
