Weekender

Not the greatest weekend in the world for shows, but still a few things worth checking out:

FRIDAY

LATE ADD: Fizzy Dino Pop/Dj Ops/Blue Fabric (408 Ponder, Denton)

Yo Majesty/Natalie Stewart (Hailey's): You might be tempted to lump Yo Majesty in with some of that other hipster hop bullshit (am I the only one who tried real hard but couldn't ever get into that Cool Kids record?), but I've seen the women of Yo Majesty twice and they are pretty much the real deal. By the way, I recently rediscovered Queen Latifa's "Just Another Day." Remember that jam from back in the day? It rules. There is also a picture of a topless memeber of Yo Majesty somewhere on WSJR. Post the URL to win a free prize!

ADD: Teenage Cool Kids/Unicorn Basement/MC.Vl/Division of Power (Exploding House)

Cartright/Circlebirds/RTB2/Heartstring Stranglers (Fra House): DL once called Cartright the worst local band, and I had to laugh at that a lot because even though I actually don't mind Cartright much, I can totally see why someone would say what DL did. Fortunately for society at large, however, most people in the world are not like us, and in fact, Cartright, during their time in Denton, had one of the most loyal local followings of any band I've seen around these parts, especially when they played at their home base, the Yellow House. Yeah, I can see how they are a Cetro-matic and Replacements rip off, but I've seen several of their shows over the years and I've never NOT had fun. That might have been due to the settings more than the band, but isn't context EVERYTHING these days?

Uptown Fridays with Select (Zubar)

Nervous Curtains/The Make Believers/Followed By Static (Doublewide)

SATURDAY

Baptist Generals/Robert Gomez/Doug Burr/Dust Congress (Sons of Hermann Hall): Sons is an appropriate setting for this show for sure, and in my not-so-humble opinion, Dust Congress are the highlights here, although to quote a WSJR associate, Baptist Generals DID get like an 8.5 in Pitchfork six years ago. JK guys!

ADD: Violent Squid/Sarah Ruth/Echo-Toll (Knight House)

Tame...Tame and Quiet/Shiny Around the Edges/Kaboom (Chat Room): If you haven't been to the Chat Room yet, it's a pretty great place to see a show, so check it out. Oh, and you just lost Ft. Worth Vegan Scene points. Bummer.

Hot Flash (Fallout Lounge): The Hot Flash crew tonight will also feature Genova. Should be the usual hipster meat market at Fallout if you're looking for some, uh, meat. But if you're in the mood to dance, Hot Flash is always fun and relatively douche free compared to the rest of the dance clubs in Dallas.

SUNDAY

Three on Sunday with Martin Iles (Dan's Silverleaf): Martin will be bringing you the following:

Cocky Americans are the worst local band (in my humble opinion)... I saw them a few months ago, and i was tempted to actually step out until they were done. They reminded me of a crappy highschool band. BTD is not fun either. Boxing Lesson's manager emailed me recently and sent me the album but i just couldn't get into it... Baptist Generals are a good bet this weekend!

yes i consider them to be the worst local band... i did say "my humble opinion" (tongue in cheek, i know but it is my opinion). I just found them hard to sit through... i have a cd of theirs as well and it just comes off as completely boring to me... plus that was a return to the post about Cartright... i do think BTD is close to worst though haha

8:29 - So they handed it to you and you HAD to take it but then you couldn't give it away? People exhibited the behavior you couldn't bring yourself to exhibit. SO you contradict yourself. I think you should head back upstairs and make your mom dinner. Having my cock in her mouth isn't filing her up.

but for the record we have only passed out CDs at one show, and we only had like 50 of them and only gave them to people who stuck their hands out for one. so whomever said we made him take one can go upstairs and cook for their mom or something. Filling.
