Monday It List Plus Shows Of Note

Whoa, it took me the majority of today to get situated, sorry about that. Hey, what's up with this Olivia Newton John version of "If Not For You" smoking the Dylan original and the cover by Harrison? Craziness. Anyways, I was really pleased that I found this 45 at Recycled recently. Also, this is much better than a lot of similar sounding yet modern, lightweight indie pop. Listen for the great solo that is way too high in the mix around the 1:37 mark. Olivia's terrible gyrations along to said solo make it all the better.

Pelican/Black Cobra/Struck by Lightning (The Granada): You have to be careful with groups like Pelican and Black Cobra. Sometimes it can sound impressively epic, but on weaker moments can come off like Creed played at the wrong tape-speed. Pelican seems to avoid such dubious territory, but occasionally I'll be caught off-guard by the lame riffs of a similar band.

Kristy Kruger/Robert Gomez/Salim Nourallah/The Beaten Sea (Opening Bell Coffee)

AC/DC (American Airlines Center): 20,000 seats at 90 dollars apiece makes for a mindbogglingly large number.

Bad Ass Jazz (The Amsterdam)

Cool Out (The Cavern)

Pete Freedman (The Libertine): Watch out, Cool Out. Serious competition across the street tonight.
