Rundown: 7/7 to 7/12

7 Jul

The issue of doing most of the writing for this site is when something comes up I don’t really have anyone to fall back on to get post up, and I’m forced to through random shit up via my phone. Anyway, we’ve got a fairly decent week capped by a free show we’re throwing, and a that little bit of breaking news we had for you on Sunday.


I just spent the last 15 minutes listening to Golden Animals, and have gone from dismissively indifferent, to thinking I should drive up to RGRS in Denton. Of course local openers Violent Squid are worth the $5 by themselves.


Something something something joke about Abe Vigoda something something something Godfather something something something Ed Wood something something something PULL THE STRING! something something Parade of Flesh books some of the best shows around something something something John Is rules something something something go to this show at the Cavern.


So, on Saturday I got to finally see Touch Tongues in person, at our little thing that went down at the Cavern, and I have to say they’re like nothing else around the area. The energetic music walks a line between caustic and captivating while managing to settle into an aural arena that captures their audience. Which is my way of saying you should make your way to J&J’s to catch them along with Basement Hitter, Boxcar Bandits, Spooky Folk and Tiger Tooth &  Paw.

I’m still waiting for Gutterth to put together a show I’m not interested in attending, and I don’t have to explain why you should want to go see Low at the loft.


Easily the busiest night of the week in the area, let’s see you’ve got our show at Hydrant which features Fishboy (solo), St. Philistine (kicking off their tour), Joey Kendall (doing his solo thing), Parata (doing their awesome thing) and The Bens from Manned Missiles (doing a relaxed thing).

While over at J&J’s you’ve got Seryn, Baruch the Scribe and Sans Soleil three bands everyone keeps telling me I need to check out. Yeah Def hip hop series is going down at RGRS, and Hailey’s has Deer Tick.

Dallas has shows at both Annex House, and Barley House, and Parade of Flesh has the Strange Boys at the Lounge.

Of course the show that most people are going to be at will be over at Dan’s where the pAper chAse will be playing with MATAS a lineup that’s sure to pack the people in. we’ve talked about both bands quite a bit on here, and will do so a little more tomorrow, when we post some music from both of them.


Depending on your taste your either at the HOB seeing Giggle Party, and Matt & Kim, or you’re at the City Tavern seeing the Slow Burners and Robert Gomez.
