It List: Monday

City Center/Night Beats/Smoke and Feathers/Land Mammals (Majestic Dwelling of Doom): New York's City Center already played DFW over the weekend, and it looks like they pulled the always-smart move of sticking around to do a smaller show while they're still in the area.

The "EM DAWD," as it's called by insiders, continues to pull diverse, quality shows and is even throwing a major curve-ball by hosting a secret dance party soon, with an eyebrow-raising lineup of DJ's.

Speaking of booking oddities, did you know that Spune productions is doing house shows now? I heard it was the "thing to do," ever since some local paper hosted a couple of fake ones last year.

Megafaun/Breathe Owl Breathe (Haileys)

Spindrift/True Widow/Aaron Barker (City Tavern)

Cool Out (The Cavern)

The Tanks/The Istics/Naxat/Division Of Power (1919 Hemphill)
: Naxat is one of those acts where the artist is playing this extremely complicated music, that would be hard enough with a full band, and yet he's standing there trying to keep it altogether, putting out each little sonic fire, one right after the other. Download an EP from Naxat here.

Ludicra/Magnus/Pinkish Black (Lola's): Ludicra has received a decent bit of positive attention of late, if not in "the trades," then at least on message boards and status updates, mostly for its impressive live show. I wasn't blown away by their recordings, but I don't doubt that their particular style of Black Metal translates better live. Fort Worth's Magnus and Pinkish Black are also on the bill, and Pinkish Black is the new project of The Great Tyrant's Daron Beck and Jon Teague.
