SR and DL contributed to this amazing post


Yells at Eels/Stoogeaphilia/Forest Ward (The Fairmount)

Last Men/Red Faced Laughter/Bad Sports/Attractive and Popular/Ginsu Wives (Majestic Dwelling of Doom, 731 Texas St., Denton): So you've known this venue as The Eighth Continent, Wisconsin, and now under this new mouthful of a moniker. The Red Faced Laughter will probably always remind me of SHQ's peak, when an unknown band from middle-of-nowhere Texas could come in to that welcoming little place and knock everyone out. There's a lot of talk about the seven-inch that RFL has completed with Last Men, who also split the bill. I'm hoping they actually have some for sale tonight. Attractive And Popular make the best case for themselves in the live setting, making this a solid bill all around.

Uptown Fridays with Select (Zubar): So we've known about Uptown Fridays with Select for a long time, but unfortunately, we've never really had the chance to make it out. However, Select sent us some info describing exactly what he does on Friday night, and we were pretty impressed. Here is some of what he said about Uptown Fridays--

"magine walking into a club...not any where in TX ...maybe like 10 years ago..maybe even later. Imagine the vibe with a dj playing dancehall from the 90's, classic house, hip house, new jack swing, and etc...with a little twist of now.... a mixture of a house night back in the 90's with the mixture of a house party. A night of solid grooves, classic disco sounds with emerging house music. Basically the night is about good times and good music."

Sounds good to me. Maybe there IS something to do in Dallas tonight.

Blackheart Society/Rival Gang/Street Hassle/Billingham's Defense System (the Lounge): Tonight's show looks like a twisted mix of Dallas Dance Music, Dallas Sixties fixations, and some weirdo Denton chaos. Fun.

Eagles of Death Metal/Klopek/Austin Brown Sounds/The Couture (the Door): There's nothing more "death metal" than a band of washed up major label clowns playing crappy music at a Christian venue, right dudes?

The Polyphonic Spree Christmas Extravaganza (Granada): To quote Norm Macdonald, "Happy Birthday, Jesus. I hope you like crap." That doesn't necessarily apply to this show, but to Christmas shows in general. Christmas shows are the opposite of what rock shows should be. If you want to have a holiday theme, okay, whatever. But if you actually cover a Christmas song, well, you're just hopeless. Unless you cover "Nothing But The Best" by Frank Sinatra. I heard that at Nordstrom Rack the other day, and it's fucking hilarious.


Fight Bite/Nouns Group/Eat Avery's Bones/ZZZ... (Chat Room): Nice to see Eat Avery's Bones on a bill again. This show is also the debut of Zzz..., a project featuring members of Yay! Telescopes, Boddicker, and Teenage Symphony. The band melds Gene Clark styled chime with bummed-out 80's underground sounds. Kill yourself.

Holy Shit!/Wax Museums/Teenage Cool Kids/The Teeners (715 Panhandle): Real no-brainer of a show. I mean, DUH.

Sarah Jaffe/Astronautalis/Boom Boom Box (Rubber Gloves): The PAperChase canceled and was replaced with Astronautilus. I had a joke about the Spawn soundtrack to make here, but I'll spare you.

Crystal Method (Lizard Lounge): One time I was at my friend's house and his redneck dad was walking around looking for something. All of a sudden, we hear him scream "Damn it!" and we're all "what's wrong?" The guy turns to us and says "I can't find my goddamn techno CDs, damn it," and we started laughing and making fun of him. Eventually, he found his Crystal Method CD and went on his merry way to Arby's. The End.

The Drams/Dove Hunter/Doug Burr/Telegraph Canyon/Am Ramblers/The Southern Sea (Hailey's): The Denton County PM Honky Tonkin' Bandit Ramblers had to drop off tonight's bill due to an overdose of real live music.

Ice Cube/Trick Trick/Awkquarius (The Door): If you go to this show, you might be able to catch AmeriKKKa's Most Wanted sippin on a smart drink with a guidance counselor in the back near the "bar." And for a mere $40, how can you NOT go?


PVC Street Gang/Cocky Americans/Teenage Cool Kids/Florene/Top Secret Robot Alliance/The Teeners (the Lounge, 3PM): Obviously, White Denim canceled, which is a drag, because I'm sure the next time you can see them it will be at a much larger, less intimate venue.

tonight at Dan's Silver Leaf, 10:30 PM - free...
A repost from Martin Iles:


My once a month video thing at Dan's Silver Leaf is happening again this Sunday, December 14th.

As usual, it's free and it starts at 10:30PM.

I'll be showing a 1967 film about African American playground games, a short documentary about an eccentric environment built in the Nevada desert, and a collection of early 70s Krautrock.

Come out and say hello.


Bess Lomax Howes, 1967 (18 min.

Filmed by anthropologist Bess Lomax Howes (daughter of musicologist John Lomax, and sister of Alan), PIZZA PIZZA DADDY-O looks at continuity and change in girls' playground games at a Los Angeles school in 1967. The players are a dozen African American fourth-grade girls (9 - 10 years old).

Songs and games performed include: My Boyfriend Gave Me a Box, Mighty, Mighty Devil, My Mother Died, This-A-Way Batman, and Pizza Pizza Daddy-O.

The Monument of Chief Rolling Mountain Thunder
Allie Light and Irving Saraf, 1983 (29 min.

At age 71, Chief Thunder lives in the Nevada desert with his young wife and small children in The Monument, a concrete and stone house he built and decorated with powerful forms and arches. His sculptures, "spirits of the living," portray Indian heroes, family, and friends. He created the monument when a voice spoke in a dream. The film captures the tragedy of his life, his painful isolation, the beauty of his work, and his creative process.

http://www. youtube. com/watch?v=BC4ycOy0n5k

Various, 1970-1971 (60 min.

A collection of early psych and prog rock from Germany in the 1970s.

Featuring: Amon Duul II, CAN, Xhol Caravan, Kraftwerk, Lucifer’s Friend, Ton Schiene Scherben, Frumpy, Guru Guru, Emergency, Joy Unlimited, Kin Ping Meh, and more.

To everyone that couldn't go to The Chat Room on Saturday night because of the 21+ only thing, we're so sorry. And to everyone that didn't get warned before driving all the fucking way out to Ft. Worth and got turned down at the door, we're seriously fucking sorry. We didn't actually realize that was in place until about 4 hours before the show started, and at that point there really wasn't anything we could do. Next time we book a show we're going to make sure that shit doesn't happen again. Hopefully you guys won't have to wait another 6 months before we play again. We're trying to book a few shows throughout Jan and Feb, and we'll probably have them at Rubber Gloves where all of you guys can come see us.

Uh, this is Meggie, the bass player from EAB...and 10:26 is not us...we love the Chat Room and we don't give a fuck that the place is 21+, no one who actually cared to drive all the way to fort worth to see us got denied from the bar. In fact, at 10:26 matt, jason, and I were probably watching tv and getting drunk. Anyway, we had a great time playing there and will be returing sometime in March.

That's weird. Weirdo. Stop being retarded.
