It List: Monday
Brightblack Morning Light/Rio En Medio (Rubber Gloves): I feel like I've written about Brightblack Morninglight so many times that there really isn't much to say. Fender Rhodes. Repitition. Weed. These are some of the keywords in most BML reviews, and you can probably gather a lot just from reading that little list. This is the kind of music that seems to either put people to sleep or completely blow them away, and you probably know who you are already. They've played with Os Mutantes and Vashti Bunyan, which have both emerged as credible name checks over the past few years amongst people who shop on InSound, so there's that. This is music that's made to float in the background yet rewards you if you pay close attention. If that doesn't sound appealing, proceed with caution.
The Points/Bad Sports/Hoop Dreamz/Occult Detective Club (818 Hickory St.): The music player stuff on my computer is fucking up, and although the local bands I'm familiar with on this bill will surely make it a good show, I have an idea-- why don't one of you describe The Points in the comments for us. If it's funny and/or informative, we'll give you a job at WSJR where you'll get paid nothing and have your self esteem battered and bruised to the point that you'll either quit or stop caring what everyone thinks of you. Either way, you lose.
