It List: Thursday
Top Notch with DJ Sober (The Cavern): So Sober emailed us last night to let us know that this would be his last weekly Top Notch performance before heading off for a month long paid gig DJing on a cruise ship, which inspired visions of Big L taking over the dance floor at Club Med. When he gets back he'll be re-starting Top Notch as a monthly thing, and we wish him luck on his journey.
D.R.I./Hit and Run/Warcola/Electric Vengeance/Maleveller/Screaming Red (Trees): Remeber when the re-opening of Trees was supposed to be a big deal? Well I don't know if people are actually hanging out there or if the club is making any money, and I don't really care-- one look at the schedule reveals that the best show they have booked for the next month or so is Ying Yang Twins, so that should probably tell you all you need to know about how relevant this place really is these days. Anyway, thrash punk legends and gutter idols DRI invade the space this evening, which actually makes this one of the better shows Trees has hosted since its re-opening. A notable band that I'm not all that interested in.
