Well, I think I only have the stomache for like one more of these band tribute things, but the one going on at 1919 Hemphill in Ft. Worth tonight might be worth your time, as you can watch The Wankers as Operation Ivy, C.R.A.T.T. as Dead Kennedys, The Dead Ramones as Screeching Weasel, half of Druids on Parade as Black Flag, and part of Best Fwends as Atom and His Package. A bunch of these bands appear to have been put together just for this show, and one of them isn't even covering a good band (Screeching Weasel has permission to blow me), but I bet it will be a good time overall. We're looking forward to the Black Flag, DK and Opiv sets in particular. Operation Ivy: the closest thing to tolerable ska that has been produced in the past twenty years. As usual with Hemphill, stuff gets started early, around 7pm.

A rotating cast of mostly talented local jazz musicians will be doing their thing at the Amsterdam Bar tonight as well.

This weekend, we had the chance to catch a cool light/sound installation at Treewave's And/Or Gallery. It was the first time we had ever spent more than a second or two at the corner of Peak and Bryan St., and it seems as though that little neighborhood really has some potential to turn into something interesting. Its in the middle of a part of town that really needs something good to happen in it, to say the least, and the surroundings and available space in the vacinity appear to be a blank canvas, especially when you consider that rent in that part of town probably isn't too obscene just yet. There is a lot of pre-existing space for more gallerys, bars and plenty of other things that could be welcome additions to the neighborhood, and the central location should be appealing to just about anyone that lives in the downtown/uptown/east side area. Its one of the few spaces immediately east of downtown that is compact, attractive and open enough to have any character at all, and I hope more potential business owners take notice of it. There are already a couple of restaurants over there, and the corner just has an inviting atmosphere to it, which is something that we hadn't noticed until we stood on it drinking free beer.

Unless you're under the age of 12, this weekend is the real Halloween for all intents and purposes. Costume parties, Halloween concerts, special events, the list goes on. There is obviously a ton of stuff going on this weekend, so we've taken it upon ourselves to sift through the Observer listings and the really crappy crap that other places are recommending so that we can give you the goods for the weekend. Its like we do every day. Here they are:


Feel like driving to Grapevine and paying $47 to see The Cult? We don't, but you can if you want to. I guess the lady that sells sanctuary also sells some really expensive concert tickets too. P.S., the Cult really does kick ass... I don't care what anyone says.

Back in Dallas, you can catch electronic music performances (including from Laptop Deathmatch star Plutonium Jukebox) and contemporary non traditional media exhibits at Treewave's And/Or Gallery as part of the Texelectronica Fest. Stuff goes down from 6-10pm tonight, and the performances start at 8pm. Even though I don't know much about the exhibits, I think its a safe bet that this will be a really good way to start the night.

Oh, you want more shit in Dallas? Try Secret Machines at, um, Lizard Lounge? Yeah, Lizard Lounge. I know Secret Machines get a lot of shit around here from bitter locals, but I think they're a pretty good band all things considered... maybe a bit too stiff for their own good at times, but they put on a great live show most of the time. Doors open at 8 and its $15. I wonder if there will be any thong contests tonight?

Still in Dallas? Try Detroit Cobras | Taylor Hollingsworth at Gypsy Tea Room tonight. DC is another band that I recommend seeing live, even if Detroit garage rock bands are SOOO over.

In Denton, you can see Voxtrot | Yellow Fever | The Dimes at Hailey's. Last time we saw Voxtrot it kinda sucked, but that was mostly Irving's fault from what I remember. In fact, Voxtrot's performance was very solid throughout, even though I found myself not giving much of a shit. Don't know why.


One of the hands down best bands in the Metroplex, Treewave, will be performing at the UNT art space in Ft. Worth at 3400 Camp Bowie as part of the Texelectronica fest. They go on at 8, and you should take advantage of this rare opportunity to see them live.

Disturbathon 06 is going down somewhere on Corinth St. downtown... thats all we're gonna say about that one, other than the fact that Wanz will be Djing and Chief Death Rage will be peforming.... I've heard that naked is the only way to go to this thing. Lucky for you, we won't be there.

Pink Nasty and Colourmusic will be playing a free instore at Good Records at 3pm...

Hailey's will be having their FREE Halloween Party with Red Monroe at 10pm, Pilotdrift at 11, and DJ G spinning records with members of Flashlight Party from 12 till 3 am.

Our Band Could Be Your Band, which we talked about last week, will be going down at Dan's Silverleaf in Denton starting at 8pm. Should be good fun, and it will help out SHQ, one of the few DIY venues in the Metroplex.

The Mountain Goats (who we actually really don't dig that much) will be playing at Rubber Gloves with Jennifer O'Connor.

And Eat Avery's Bones will be playing the Melissas' Delux Party at Avenue Arts on Exposition near the Amsterdam and Fallout. Stuff gets started at 10.


I know its a Sunday and Sundays are a drag, but seeing Laptop Deathmatch at Doublewide is truly mandatory if you want to see what is really happening in Dallas music these days.

it list : thursday
Gotta be a little short today, but here are the only shows you care about tonight:

Joan Baez is at the Lakewood Theater tonight. What the hell will that be like? I don't even like Joan Baez really, so I'm not sure if I even care to answer the question. Just thought it was noteworthy that she would be in the hood tonight.

In Denton, experimental black metal/ jazz stuff is going down at House of Tinnitus tonight as they welcome Ettrick | A Fail Association/ Boy Scout Manual. I don't have links for the other two bands, but from the sound of things, Ettrick is going to blow your fucking ears off anyway. And I mean that in the nicest possible way. Stuff has apparently been getting started around 9pm there, but maybe one of the people involved can give you a more specific time in the comments section.

And if you're going to be up in Denton tonight, you can also check out Chin Up Chin Up | Oxford Collapse | The Demings at Rubber Gloves. I haven't been too wowed with anything Chin Up Chin Up has put out thus far, but they're certainly nothing to spit at. However, the real draw here is Oxford Collapse, who have just realeased a really great pop rock record that will kill live. I've seen them live, and they kill it. I have heard rumors that they have overtaken Chin Up as the headliner on this tour, but I can't confirm that. Guess you should probably show up early to be safe.

Dj G will also be spinning at Hailey's up in Denton.

And you can also check out the Zoo video DJs upstairs at The Cavern and late 80's/early 90's hip hop at the Slip Inn.

red monroe- s/t ep
If mainstream rock fans in Dallas had better taste, Red Monroe would already be one of the most popular bands in the metroplex. Of course, this isn't to say that they're the best band in the area, or even one of the ten best, but thats kind of missing the point. There are a handful of other things going on in Dallas and Denton right now that are more interesting, unique, and exciting than Red Monroe, and I probably don't have to tell most of you about them. But as everyone already knows, popularity often has little to do with artistic merit, and in Dallas, the presence of the first trait usually all but guarantees the absence of the second, meaning that good art often goes unnoticed, nice guys usually finish last, and shitty bands are given the royal treatment by the local music press time and time again. This is why Red Monroe's ratio of talent to commercial appeal is pleasantly surprising, and its why you should be glad that they are probably about to become bigger than a lot of the popular Dallas rock bands that have helped turn this town into a snore fest.

It was recently announced that the band's self titled debut EP has been placed on the Grammy Award nomination list for best "Alternative Album," and one quick listen to its eight songs provides a pretty clear explanation as to how this happened. Simply put, if there is a musical formula for "indie" success these days, Red Monroe probably comes as close as anyone in the metroplex to following it perfectly, producing a record that will satisfy a portion of the music geeks while simultaneously thrilling enough Greenville bar hoppers to earn the band some attention from people that usually don't give a shit.

if "indie" is indeed an actual musical genre as opposed to an abstract, indefinable marketing concept used purely to sell us fake "West Virginia is for Lovers" t-shirts, Red Monroe sums up the sound well enough. If you take most of the fashionable influence lists that have popped up this millennium (post-punk, space rock, psychedelic, Radiohead, Brit pop, bits of Americana and blues, 60's garage, glam, Talking Heads, The Strokes, The Walkmen etc.) and mix them up until they're all audibly present but jumbled to the point of being almost indistinguishable, you would probably get a sound that could fairly be described as contemporary "indie" rock, and you would also be pretty close to what Red Monroe sounds like. I know, I know, this description probably isn't thrilling to many of you, and admittedly, I'm usually not too excited to hear a band that sounds like bits and pieces of just about every "next big thing" that has come and gone over the past five years. But somehow, Red Monroe pulls it off more often than not, and sometimes, the results are quite impressive.

The Ep opens with the short, bouncing thump of "Shotgun Heart," and almost immediately transitions into the Wolf Paradesque organ-lead stomp of "Fingertips," a song that serves as the Ep's most accessible track while providing a proper showcase for Eric Steele's lead vocals, which are clearly the band's strongest selling point. Steele's influences probably won't be much of a mystery to many, as echoes of Ziggy era Bowie, David Byrne, and contemporaries such as Alec Ounsworth, Hamilton Leithauser and Spencer Krug make themselves apparent from the get go. However, the singer's excited, slightly shrieking delivery is urgent, powerful and quite effective throughout the album, constantly demanding the listener's attention and revealing an emotional depth that you'll be hard pressed to find in most local albums. The life of the band's music seems to be packed into his confidently damaged vocals, and his emotions on sleeve presentation almost always seem to bring the band to a slightly higher level, setting them apart almost immediately from other locals that might share similar influences.

Musically, the band seems to be willing to explore a bit, but never ventures far enough to truly break any new ground. Fortunately, this restraint isn't often a problem. "A Return to the Old Way of Thinking," the EP's best track, starts with a shimmering march reminiscent of PIL's "Rise" before following an efficiently funky bassline into a soul infected breakdown shift that emphasizes the band's strong command of rhythm and reveals their willingness to play around with structure a bit. The band also tries its hand with Nigel Godrich atmospherics on the slow building "Carolina Cigarette," where choppy post-punk pop guitar gives way to swirling synths and guitar noise in a convincing if slightly rushed build up. Elsewhere, acoustic psychedelics make a welcome appearance on "Blue Mountain Air," and the Radiohead infected shoegaze guitar of closer "Broken Wall Carnival" reveals bits and pieces of all the things Red Monroe does well, playing off a bouncing bass line and a well placed organ wall that lends the song an effective texture.

As you might expect, the band at times tends to get bogged down in predictable guitar playing and chord changes, and there are a few points where lyrics become a bit trite and tired, but nothing truly offensive or completely boring ever really emerges, even if there are a couple of slow patches to be found. For the most part, the playing is tight, well crafted and powerful enough to hold attention throughout, with sufficiently memorable stretches that ensure accessibility. Again, the slight been there done that feel that you'll find on Red Monroe probably holds this album back a bit, but its clear that the band has the good taste and requisite talent to take their music in different, more interesting directions if they choose. At its core, Red Monroe's EP is populist in nature, and I wouldn't be surprised to see these guys shift to headliner status in the next few months. But for once, an accessible Dallas rock record is actually quite enjoyable, and if a few more bands like Red Monroe began to take hold in the Dallas mainstream, checking the Observer's local concert listings could become significantly less embarrassing for everyone.

Every one of you knows that you like at least ONE Elton John song. I like around 10 I think. And although I like men in feather boas about as much as the Lion King soundtrack (I guess Bowie and Jagger are the only ones allowed to wear them), we all might get a chance to see/hear both as Elton plays the Meyerson tonight for some kind of charity thing. It probably costs 8 thousand dollars and is likely sold out by now, and considering that the guy hasn't released a decent song since the late 70's, I doubt its worth anyones time to see this, duck suit or not. And I guess thats why they call it the blues.

In other news concerning over the top sweethearts that haven't released any good music in a while, The Decemberists will take the Gypsy Tea Room stage with Lavender Diamond tonight. I guess I really shouldn't be that hard on The Decemberists because they HAVE written some good songs in the past... its just that I can't take the whole English major self importance thing. I prefer blogger self importance, by the way, which is more 2006 and much more important overall. Print is totally dead dudes!

The Undoing of David Wright will be hitting up Rubber Gloves tonight with straight up harcore/oi! punks Peelander-Z and The Daily Beat. Listening to Peelander Z really reminds me of how fashionable it is becoming to dig on hardcore once again, and I for one have been waiting for it to be ok to play Black Flag in front of girls for pretty much my whole life. Of course, any time anyone mentions this trend (much like any time a person mentions hipster metal), some dude gets all up in arms about how hipster pussies need to fuck off, etc., and real hardcore fans this and that and the other. I'd just like to remind that dude that "real hardcore" went on to produce stuff like Biohazard, which should be enough to shut him up if he knows his ass from a hole in the underground. Peelander Z should be loved by anyone that has ever dug on some Bad Brains or Husker Du. Which should be all of you. And I should know, cuz I'm a real hardcore fan... not like you pussies!

And of course, you can hit up The Metro tonight with DJs Laureen and Nicole at the Cavern. Is it just me or are there always nice looking people at this thing? Since I can't link it for some reason, just go to myspace.com/mile_end for more info.

Flashlight Party will also be doing This is Radio Clash at Hailey's tonight, and it might be a good night to check it out since Dj Nature won't be doing his thing at Rubber Gloves. Thats all.


Before Blogger so rudely locked us out of our blogspot, we were going to tell you that Jenny Lewis and the Watson Twins will be playing with Will Sheff and The Blow at the Ridglea Theater in Ft. Worth tonight. Although Jenny is in fact one of the more talented indie pin-up girls you'll ever have the pleasure of seeing, the real reason to check this show out is K Records' The Blow, whose dancey electro cutie might be a bit too sweet for some, but will be entertaining for sure.

the buzz bin
I promise that we will in fact be covering local music this week (record reviews and features to come), but while we work on that stuff, I thought you might be interested to hear and/or see three bands that have been getting a lot of attention around the blogosphere for the past couple of weeks/months. What is noteworthy about these three bands in not the newness of their sounds, but the fact that they sound like bands that probably could have broke really big a couple of years ago (not to mention 15-20 years ago). Remember when "dancepunk" was going to take over everything after The Rapture released Echoes? Well, I don't think that record had quite the impact people were expecting it to, but its clear that the indie kids still want to dance, and the three bands below have all been linked to words like "rave," "electro," and "dancerock." The spaced out krautrock of 120 Days seems to be by far the most promising of the three, and the song below sounds sort of like Can if they had formed in the late 80's in Manchester and started an Italo disco group... their first single is really quite good, and I think the band could possibly become quite big here in the next few months as they start their first U.S. tour. Klaxons sound a bit more immature and tied to the present (read: not far off from Arctic Monkeys and Bloc Party in some respects), but most of the material I've heard from them has been bold and exciting, and they are certainly worth a listen if nothing else. Working for a Nuclear Free City is probably the closest to straight up "dance" music of the three, and they might remind you of the Chemical Brothers, INXS, Stereo MCs, 80's funk and mid 90's big beat/deep house.... but it sounds better than that. Anyway, here are two tracks and a video (if bands, labels or management want any of this stuff taken down, please email weshotjr@yahoo.com and we'll take care of it)

120 Days "Come Out (Come Down, Fade Out, Be Gone)" MP3

Working for a Nuclear Free City " Troubled Son" MP3

Video for Klaxons' "Gravity's Rainbow"

Broken Social Scene | Do Make Say Think (Gypsy Tea Room)
Of course this is the big show of the night, and if you've ever seen BSS live, you know that there is a good reason for it. Yeah, the whole 26,000 member Canadian band thing has lost a bit of the novelty it had a couple of years ago, and the break up rumors surrounding BSS are about as obvious as they come (who would have thought that 17 people wouldn't be able to all get along on tour?), but the band has managed to put out two great records (with the second somehow improving on the first), and they really give you everything they've got on stage as their noisy and hynotic walls of sound quickly win you over. Gypsy should be a great venue for this show too.

Lost Generation w/ Wanz (Cavern Upstairs)
Here is what Wanz is planning for tonight:

"I got new stuff from Burial, Kode 9, Kano, Wolf Eyes, Skream, ...Trail of Dead, Audion and Ellen Allien. I got Old Stuff from Flying Saucer Attack, Laika, The Germs, The Bellmer Dolls, the Get Hustle, obscure funk 45's, Bill laswell and Radio Birdman. i have also scored a lot of great music from bands(local and otherwise) off of myspace. Some stuff actually worth playing. Next week is a Halloween Bash on halloween night with me and Guest DJ Gabriel. I think we may be downstairs. Not sure yet."

Xrayok | Girls Rise with Heat | Black Elk | Dirty Water Disease (Club Dada)
Hmm... bands from L.A. They're so easy to hate, aren't they? Take X-Ray Ok for example. I guess their songs aren't entirely terrible, even though they are highly derivative of some of the more pedestrian influences that have been swimming around on Myspace music pages over the past few years... britpop, 80's electro, Radiohead, yada yada yada. And while I like all the aforementioned influences, when you read them together they sound like a list of favorite bands that a frat boy would feed an "indie chick" to show how open minded he is. In short, its quite boring, and the L.A. fashion attitude doesn't help either. I don't know about you, but I think I've heard enough emo pop/80's electro combos over the past several years to safely say that I can pass on these guys. The main reason I mention this show is Portland's Black Elk, who seem to completely kick ass. If you're looking for the rock tonight, you might want to check out their brand of screaming, metal damaged hardcore. And I'm also somewhat interested to see how the dark ambient music of Dirty Water Disease will translate live.

fun fun fun on the austinbahn
In case you hadn't heard about it yet, we wanted to hip you guys to the Fun Fun Fun Fest, an event that will be taking place at Waterloo Park in Austin on Friday, December 1st. Of course, we don't want to get all "Keep Austin Weird" on you, and not every band playing this thing is completely legit, but there are certainly some pleasing highlights: Spoon, Peaches, Black Angels, Dead Meadow, Octopus project, Oranges Band, Prefuse 73, Dj Mel and of course, the return of Circle Jerks. Tickets go on sale on Friday, and you can get more information by clicking on the link above. I can't imagine what the Circle Jerks will be like... I'm picturing either a massive success or a huge trainwreck. Either way, it'll be fun to watch. 25 bands, three stages, not sure about the price quite yet. The line up:

Indie stage:

Spoon 8:50-10:00
Peaches 7:30-8:30

Not a whole hell of a lot going on tonight, but you can check out Jazz Night at the Amsterdam Bar (as usual), which is probably a good time again now that the Fair is out of our hair for another year. And if you're in the mood for the complete opposite kind of show, you might want to see whats up at Darkside Lounge, as Austin's Jesus Lizard/ Girls Against Boys/Fugazi influenced Condition of Sale will be playing with post- hardcore outfit Stones We Throw. None of the limited material I've heard from either of these bands has really amazed me, but its pretty solid stuff that should pack an extra punch. You know, the kind of punch that just might make it a little less depressing to be in Deep Ellum on a Monday night.

More to come...

Doing this early today because we have to. We're also having problems with Blogger today, so we're going to make this short and hope that it works. Lots of stuff to do this weekend, so lets get right to it:


Ladytron | CSS (Gypsy Ball Room)
This is probably the place to be tonight. We're excited to see both of these bands live.

Ft. Worth Modern Concert Series: Stumptone @830 | Dove Hunter @ 930/ Octopus Project @1030/ Sober DJing all night: This should be a lot of fun. We're big OP fans here, and we dig on some Stumptone too. We've heard a few things here and there about how good Dove Hunter is too, but since we've only heard one of their songs, we don't know what to tell you about them. Its 10 bucks to get in (or free for Modern members) and goes from 6pm till midnight.

Lollipop Shoppe @ (DoubleWide) Will feature performances tonight from Blackheart Society and White Drugs. You want to see White Drugs live, trust me on this.

Record Hop | Birth To Burial | Medicine Window (Dallas Scaregrounds)
Starts at 9pm, and I think its like three bucks to get in.

Thunderbirds Are Now | Rescue | The Daily Beat (Hailey's)


Lost Generation Concert Series: The Good Sons | The Great Tyrant | The Undoing of David Wright | Prayer For Animals

The Party (Southside Lamar) FREE: Djs Nature, Sober and Select will be spinning records for free at Southside Lamar from 7-11 pm. It has something to do with Redbull.

Teenage Symphony | Eat Averys Bones | S-1 Committee (J&Js)
FREE show.

Ali Shaheed Muhammad (Zubar)
