We're going to have to be a little more utilitarian than usual today because we have some, uh, stuff to take care of this afternoon.  I know, I know, we should start working on these earlier, but we actually hate writing (written by SR and DL, and find more on our show calendar):


The Party (Zubar): Dj Sober has just posted a sequel to his Satin Sheets mix tape, and you can check the track list and download it for free right here.  

Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey/Yells at Eels (Granada): It will indeed be fun to watch Yells at Ells at such a big place, but I'd leave pretty quickly after they were done and maybe go to Zubar or the Cavern or something.  

PVC Street Gang/Cocky Americans/Hormones Limited (the Cavern)

Electric Vengeance/Tattered Flag/Scoff/Kick Your Donkey/Oxide Endeavor (1919 Hemphill)


Mr. Troll/Richard Smith (Opening Bell): I've discussed the extremely endearing and sincere quality of Mr. Troll's singing before, and I'm hoping to catch him at one of Dallas' only coffee shops tonight.

Steel Hook Prostheses/Yellow Crystal Star/Amir Coyle/Alters/Warm Walls/No Music Plays in Hospitals/So Boring (2404 S. Fielder St., Arlington):  Another interesting show at the Fielder Street House in Arlington, put together by the Wasted Words Collective. Yellow Crystal Star is the moniker that Mark Billings records under, releasing super-limited runs of his recordings, from thirty to seventy five on labels such as Brooklyn's Obsolete Units. They are often documents of his live shows; performances featuring fairly bloodless sounds that drone on loudly, but never harshly. The Foxy Digitalis reviewer said it reminded him of the first time he heard Godspeed You Black Emperor or something like that, so I guess that's a huge compliment. It was probably the day he realized Modest Mouse simply could not inspire him any longer. He had heard the future!
Bosque Brown/Shiny Around the Edges/Tame...Tame and Quiet (The Fairmount)

The Angelus/Florene/Magnets (Annex House):  I'm not 100% sure, but lately I've heard about a lot of Dentonites moving to Dallas, and I just wanted to say that I think the members of the Angelus did it first.  In other news, I'm glad that the Annex House is hosting regular house shows in Dallas now, which I'm hoping will show others that they can do it down here too.  We shouldn't have to drive to Denton for EVERYTHING, should we?

The Theater Fire/Eyes, Wing and Many Other Things/Clint Niosi (Lee Harvey's): Shit, what horrible timing.  Lee Harvey's is a great place to see a show, but not when its 35 degrees outside, which is what its supposed to be on Saturday night.  Bring a jacket.  I think that's the most practical advice I've ever given on here aside from telling people to do drugs.  

Many Birthdays/Florene (Good Records, 5PM)

Jack with One Eye/Many Birthdays/The Watchers/Sarah Ruth (The Cavern)

Sleep When You're Dead (Fallout Lounge)


Masshysteri/Wiccans/Big Blow (Bunker Hill): Masshysteri is made up of members of several notable groups including The Vicious, International Noise Conspiracy, Regulations, and Lost Patrol Band. This is really melodic punk, with a lot of minor key chord progressions, similar to the kind of drama created by The Wipers, but featuring what a lesser writer might call "coed vocals." And I will simply quote that lesser writer. Fairly new hardcore act Wiccans is playing again, and brand new HC group, Big Blow is playing for the first time ever.

For Your Pleasure with DJ G (Hailey's)
