Rundown: 7/9 to 7/11

9 Jul

FRIDAY

True Widow / Mansions / UME @ RGRS

Yesterday I mentioned how you need to see as much True Widow as possible and today you get a free show…SYNERGY!

Warbler Pl / Good Night and Good Morning / Roger Sellers / Cody Robinson @ J&J’s

We had a show with half this line-up last year, and many of us were blown away by Roger Sellers, if you like the things the North brothers do, you’ll love his work.

Manned Missiles / Eaton Lake Tonics / Daniel Folmer @ The Groto (Ft. Worth)

It’s indie rock’n’roll night in Ft. Worth.

SATURDAY

Vulgar Fashion / Pocket Change / Betdat / Cuckoo Birds @ Mabel Peabody’s

We Shot JR has the lowdown on this show, and Cuckoo Birds, you should check it out.

The Hold Steady @ The Granada

America’s best bar band seems to be in a bit of a lull with the departure of keyboardist Franz Nicolay, and critics not losing their shit over  Heaven is Whenever like they did for the bands last three albums, but one thing remains. They put on one hell of a show. I still remember my first Hold Steady show at Walter’s in Houston back in 2006, the venue: sold out, the crowd: elated, Boys & Girls in America: not out, the energy: like nothing I’ve experienced since.  It’s been 4 years since that night, the venue’s changed, the band’s changed, the hype has changed, I’ve changed, but I still expect one hell of a show.

Dove Hunter / Shiny Around the Edges / Dust Congress / DJ Hamhock (Luke Dayton of Kampfgrounds)@ RGRS

I know I can’t be the only one eagerly awaiting SAtE’s Denton’s Dreaming, and this show not only features the band performing songs from the album, but also features Shiny’s future tourmates Dust Congress, and the always excellent Dove Hunter. Add in the world music DJ Hamhock will be spinning and the drink specials (Red Stripe and Rum) and this is far and away the best thing you could do with $6 this weekend.

SUNDAY

POF Presents: Lighting Bolt / Indian Jewelry / Best Fwiends / Guards @ Trees

Indian Jewelry’s latest album, Totaled, is an expansion on their dark-noise sound that the band has been on the forefront of , with an increased ear towards the expansion of their composition the band has managed to surpass their earlier work, fans who missed the bands excellent set during this years NX35 should make it a point to catch them live. It should also be noted that this excellent show at a very unnatural venue for something like this, further proof that John Is isn’t afraid to take risk.
