It List: Wednesday
Lost Generation/Rooftop Vigilantes (The Lounge): Tonight's show is scheduled to run from eight until midnight, to make it easier on those who have a hard time going out during the week. The guest DJ is Gabe from Lollipop Shoppe, though I'm told he'll be playing punk, post-punk, no wave, and soul as opposed to the more 60's-oriented psych and pop etc. he usually plays. Lawrence, KS residents, Rooftop Vigilantes, are this edition's live music act, and they were once described in a lucky appearance on Stereogum's "Band To Watch" as a "drunken Fugazi." I really don't know about that. Maybe it's just me, but I don't think that Fugazi would sound like that if they were drunk. My guess is drunken Fugazi would still sound pretty great, and not so emo-pop. I have to stop myself though, I'm starting to sound like the Superfans discussing "Little Ditka." Band is scheduled for ten o'clock.
Get Fucked Wednesdays (Fallout Lounge): This is a new weekly at Fallout Lounge and the lineup is Mikey Rodge, Killtron, and Whack-A-Tone. Wait, was Killtronix shortened to Killtron? I know I'm one to talk, but it's hard to keep up with all this nickname shit. Harder than remembering all the profiles in "Stryfe's Strike File."
The Killers/M83 (Nokia): ADD: I apologize for forgetting that M83 is opening for The Killers. Forgive me. If you forgot every other watered-down, shoegaze-pop, caricature of a band, I would forgive you.
