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.
