It List: Thursday
Damaged Good$/Billingham's Defense System (Fallout Lounge): Should be quite the packed hipster who's who over at Fallout tonight as local hip hop sensations Damaged Good$ are welcomed back home after a touring stint in Europe. The group's performance will occur around midnight (sandwiched between DJ sets from BDS), and although live performances at Fallout are typically sub-par as far as sound and line of sight goes, Damaged Good$ are just the kind of house party favorite that makes these kinds of shows worth going to anyway. Oh, it's also free.
Top Notch with Sober (The Cavern): The new weekly residency for Sober, a guy who will be performing in the midst of several huge nationally buzzed about acts (including Vivian Girls and White Denim) at the 3rd annual Gorilla Vs. Booze SXSW Day Show. And according to the man himself, dude can mix.... ;-)
Sun Club w/ guest DJ Shane English (Rubber Gloves): Hey guys, do you need a break from listening to some dude "spin" a 15 year old Australian's cover of a Teenagers song directly from some shitty Myspace page? Check out Sun Club, then, for some choice disco and house cuts that don't involve force feeding of the latest "blog house" hits. Shane English will be guesting tonight, and we're hoping he spins another crate digger's delight of an acid house set, similar to what we've heard from him before. However, he could be up to anything, really-- early synth/cold, industrial, whatever. Highly recommended.
Yells at Eels/Future Sound Soulclash (Club Dada)
80's Night with DJ G (Hailey's)
Riverboat Gamblers (Vickery Park): Did this band used to be good earlier in the decade when they lived in Denton or something? Because listening to their Myspace page recently made me wonder how anyone other than 14 year old mall punk virgins could actually listen to this bullshit. This concert is FREE, but as we like to say around here, sometimes free ain't free, you know?
There are more shows listed on the show calendar for tonight, and we're starting to add a lot of new upcoming stuff as well, so check in over there.
