It List: Thursday

Sorry, we're really trying to start publishing these things earlier, but sometimes life gets in the way:

Damaged Good$/Prince William/Scuba Team Go/Johnny Moog (Granada): This is at least a partially great line up at the Granada tonight, and I hope enough people come out to see it so that the place doesn't look empty. Perhaps I'm underestimating the draw of Dallas' Damaged Goods, and I might very well be considering the appeal they seem to have amongst the hipster hop set, but when I see a line up listed in a local paper and my first guess would be that the show was taking place at Hailey's or the Cavern or something, the Granada just seems like it might not be the right place for it. Again, the line up is solid, and Kudos to the Granada for taking a chance on a nearly all local bill like this, I just hope that it works. That's all. Most of you have heard us talk a lot about Damaged Goods and Prince William by now (which is good since they are the highlights) they are , but we've only said a little about the other two acts. Scuba Team Go is kind of a strange one-- they sort of remind me of some of that white boy EMO hip hop shit, like Why? or something, mixed with like, uh, other EMO shit. I don't know. I don't care. Some of their beats are actually pretty decent, mixing 80's electro pulses with nods to 90's RZA, but I can't imagine seeing this group live and not feeling like I needed to be doing something else with my life. Johnny Moog is a friend and favorite of Prince William's, and his oversexed, slick r&b funk is solid as shit and well worth checking out.

damaged goods isn't bad and their tag makes me think they probably like to play a lot of games.
