It List: Tuesday

A couple of things I noticed today: Anyone who has ever had to book a show in Lubbock, TX has probably had to deal with a strangely charming trio called, The Numerators. They have also played locally, at both The Majestic Dwelling Of Doom, and Secret Headquarters. The group has a pretty diverse sounds and does everything from Half Japanese-styled noise-punk freak-outs, to calm instrumentals, and, of course, the ridiculous rapping-over-the-Ipod bit, that "hipster haters" love to bitch about. Anyways, they have a new track on The Fader website, which is a poppy, reverb-strangled number entitled, "City of Gold." This is one of the few times where I'm 100% behind a featured track on Fader, so I had to bring it up.

Oh, and Neon Indian's tour dates are now officially announced, including tomorrow night's show at Rubber Gloves.

The List:

The Dandy Warhols (Good Records 6 PM, Free): This will be an acoustic performance by a band who has gotten a lot of mileage out of a terrible single, as well as misbehaving in an oft-discussed documentary. Expect to spend some time around more "casual" music fans, or hardcore overrated documentary aficionados.

There will also be a Beatles-themed party at Good tonight, celebrating the release of all of the remastered albums, which I find to be terribly interesting, as well as the release of The Beatles Rock Band game, which I find terribly uninteresting. It's actually much easier to learn to competently play those instruments than it is to try to figure out that warped, kiddie-toy shit. For the first time in my life, I truly understand my uncle's rage as he threw an NES controller across the room during a frustrating try at Excitebike, Christmas Day, 1985. Anyways, there will be free food, drink, and a prize giveaway. Classic, local Beatles cover band, Hard Night's Day will also be appearing. The Warhols perform later in the evening with Spindrift at The Granada.

90's Night With Yeah Def (Hailey's): Hey, everyone. Here's a special message from Yeah Def about tonight's performance (via Facebook): "wrote a lil rhymey to promote tonight: 9pm tonight. its 90's night. every tuesday bub. @ hailey's club. please come early and enjoy discounted drinks. please stay late and dance out the kinks."
Good work, Mr. Def. Reminds me of a certain Hollywood MC's repeated rhyme of the word "West."
