It List: Wednesday

Musee Mecanique/C. Johnson from Telegraph Canyon (The Chat Room): Free show featuring the cinema obsessed, pillow-soft sounds of Portland's Musee Mecanique.

Lost Generation with Wanz Dover plus Farah/Slackbeat (The Lounge): Wanz has a new strategy for Lost Generation where he is going to start hosting different guest live acts and DJ's along with his own sets. He has some pretty interesting lineups scheduled with acts such as Big Elf, Rooftop Vigilantes, and local record collector and ex-Robo-Gnostic member, Jason Cohen. He also used to run Forbidden Books, and according to my dealer at one of my favorite hidden-gem record shops, he was just a few hours ahead of me on a recent record-shopping excursion in middle-of-nowhere, Llano, TX, one day after New Year's. Definitely a coincidence but, man, I hate competing with fellow North Texans in my sweet spots.

Tonight's show is a great start to Lost Gen's new set-up with the always great Farah, and Denton's Slackbeat, an unpredictable mix of acoustic instruments, turntable clicks, noise, and other random surprises. They rarely play in Dallas so definitely make it out.

13 Going on 30 Party with Yeah Def/Females/Schwa/Big J/Ghost Pizza (Hailey's): Birthday party celebrating Yeah Def and one of the guys from Gordon And The Whale.

Movie Premier: Macaframa at Angelika Film Center (Dallas): I know a lot of people have been excited about this movie focusing on the world of fixed gear and track biking. Film at 7:30.

not ripping off detour. I did not know they owned the band/DJ bill format. I am gonna focus on more experimental music and collector scum DJ's. Not necessairly Dance music. Next week Gabe and I are playing old school Punk, hardcore, soul and funk.

The detour guys have my full support and I plan on trying to book opposite shows from what they have on their schedule so we don't step on each others toes. Definately more grindcore and metal nights. This town needs all of help it can get. Promoters trying to compete for a night is part of that cliques and politics thing that I am very much against.

I went to my first punk show in '86 and was a total metal head all the way into high school. I was playing in hardcore bands when most people on this blog were in diapers('91-'95). Literally. That is not a put down, but it is the truth. I am older and don't have the angst to hang with the scene like I used to, but I still have a really big collection of old school hardcore, Thrash and Black Metal. I have friends that still play in hardcore and metal bands and hosting them at my night is a great excuse to dig some older and more extereme stuff out of my crates. You might be surprised how many older DJ's came from the old hardcore scenes of the late 80's and early 90's.

I am not really a DJ(yet). More of a collector scum that likes to turn people on to music......of all types. I am and always will be a musician and record collector first.

I'm not trying to one up anyone or justify my existence. Just defending myself from misinformation. If people did not come at me so hard I would never bust out the resume. It's really not my style. I have been around a very long time. I have not seen anymore shows than any other rabid music fan of my age.

or in you language

insert anon style answer here:
"Take that poo poo face"

at least I am not a coward and can stand behind my words.

wanz, aren't you like 35? do you really need to defend yourself to a bunch of kids?
Do you not have a life to go live?
Does it really bother you that much?
Also, what's the point in telling you who they are when they say something about you?
You're just going to go write a terrible song with that person's name in it VS. blixawhathefuckeverwhocaresbot.
I mean, if you'd really confront someone and do something about it, sure I'd tell you who am I and we'd settle it.

You are truly the coward.

wanz may be proud of what he has accomplished,but theres no reason at all to be an asshole to him. theres already too many assholes in this world like the ones who run this blog and the sexist pervs that dis on farah. if you wanna kick some guys ass you never even met, youre just a loser. if you met him, you would realize theres no sense in trying to fight him. he's a regular schmoe, just like all of us nobodys that makes up every element of this shit boat. violence is stupid which means if you wanna fight, do it with someone else as neanderthal as you. that way you people can kill eachother off. or even better suicide bomb a polease station.

I just don't think about it. I don't care if she's a woman. I care that she is a great player.
And while yes I listen to kaki king look at yourself, ignorantly calling Texans hicks because Texas has hicks. Did you know jersey and new York have their fair share of hicks?

Anonymous american cowboy said...

not all texans are hicks, just most of em. especially on this blog. but there are some really amazing people out here, there are everywhere, just very little of em spread far and thin. this is a huge metroplex for having very little support of the arts. i dont blame artist, its really just cause of the cities concern with commercialism. but it affects us all and turns simple blogs like this one to just another part of the rat race. ny, and nj at least voted against mccain. most hicks dont have cowboys accents now, they shop at urban outfitters, aeropostle, the mall and listen bright eyes, pavement, deerhoof, sufjan stevens, etc but still have the same ingrained programmed ideals.

i'll bet $20 this crusty with a knack for bawling about nothing has four-foot dreads and doesn't bathe. that way we'll know he/she isn't a "hick", but an wannabe elitist with "big dreams" of Ohio...

does it make you feel important to argue into the open air about invalid points? these huge generalizations are so immature and embarrassing--and honestly--who the fuck bothering to read this blog and get info on music has ever purchased a CD from starbucks?

i think this is a conversation you need to be having with mom and dad.

take your pathetic excuse for teen angst bullshit elsewhere. get into suicide like normal teenagers, and really make a fucking difference. die.

you watch southpark and call someone else immature? pick up a book, read allot and what i say might begin to make sense. being agnostic is still absurd concerning reality. its great to have an imagination but i would hope you would put it to more use by learning about facts and then deploying your knowledge into action. but hey its your brain to waste.
