It List: Tuesday

Dust Congress/Fight Bite/Dana Falconberry/Drug Mountain (503 W. Sycamore, Denton):  This free house show is being hosted by Nick Foreman of Dust Congress at his home, and the word is that it starts promptly at 9PM, although we're unsure of the order in which the bands will play.  Quite a diverse line up tonight-- most of you know these acts pretty well with the possible exception of Austin's Dana Falconberry, who will be embarking on a tour of the midwest beginning this evening.  Falconberry has garnered quite a bit of attention both inside and outside of Austin, being named Best Female Vocalist 2009 by the Austin Chronicle while also receiving praise from Paste, KCRW and Gorilla vs Bear, among many others.  Her initially delicate folk and classic pop influenced tracks sound sweet and sugary on first listen, but many of her songs seem to contain something darker and more thoughtful just below the surface, which is something that probably cannot be said for many other artists she might be compared to.  I've seen her live several times, and each performance was fantastic, so I'd be sure to arrive by 9 this evening in order to catch all of these acts in a pleasantly intimate setting where you can totally BYOB.  

Dark Castle/Embolization/Pyro Plastic Flow (Bike House):  Located at 5640 Vickery St. in Dallas, this one starts early, at 7PM, and will surely be quite the harsh ordeal, as headlines Dark Castle seem to pull from the punishing pantheon of groups like Neurosis and Big Business with a mostly slow and sludgy sound that works quite well with comparatively minimal arrangments.  And I would say the Melvins, too, but that's sort of like saying "influenced by Black Sabbath" these days.  Anyway, stop by and take a look at one of the new East Dallas DIY spots to have popped up in recent months
