Rundown: 8/11

Happy Birthday, Granada!

There’s a lot of excitement going on for a Wednesday night. I love summertime … except for the heat … and the mosquitoes … and the schoolchildren crowding me everywhere I go …

Anyway, here are my top picks for tonight.

Granada’s 6th Anniversary Party w/ Built to Spill/Finn Riggins/Telegraph Canyon

The Granada has been one of my favorite venues in DFW since the first time I went there to see two of my favorite bands, Belle and Sebastian and the New Pornographers, back in 2005. It’s a gorgeous venue with a great setup and sound system. I’ve been to many memorable concerts there, most of them with people I cared about deeply, so I’m gladly braving the trek to Dallas celebrate the 6th anniversary of its revamping. Getting to see Built to Spill for the first time doesn’t hurt either.

Weekly Tape Deck Presents: Sundress/Naomi Punk/Masters & Johnson @ Dan’s

We love Weekly Tape Deck. We love Sundress. We love Dan’s. Dentonites who can’t make it to Dallas/afford the BTS tickets should go to this show. Oh, and it’s Ryan E.’s (of WTD) birthday, so buy him a shot and give him a hug from us!

Cyndi Lauper w/ David Rhodes @ House of Blues

If Built to Spill weren’t playing tonight, this is would be my pick for Dallas shows.

Review: Sundress–Fever EP

26 May

Editor’s note: This review is the first of what we hope will be many by Judson Valdez (whom you may know as frontman for Baruch the Scribe).

I must admit that I haven’t always been a fan of This Old house/ Odyssey/Sundress. During early listens, I thought the band’s songs were all too similar and a little melodramatic at times. But since I’ve attended their shows over the past couple of months, they have won me over (understatement). I’ve found myself awaiting recordings from this band more than any other local act in recent months, yet also a little worried about what they would sound like. Continue reading

Introducing Sundress

12 Apr

On Saturday it’ll be exactly one year since I left Record Store Day early to go up to Denton and sit down with the guys of This Old House, and to be honest a lot has happened over the past year. The band added Jim Harrington on keys, opened for The Clientele at the Granada, played main support for Sarah Jaffe at a sold-out NX35 show, played with Bear in Heaven at SXSW, dropped their original  name, and became ODYSSEY.

Now comes news of a bigger change: the band has changed not only in name, but subtly in sound, christening themselves “Sundress” and taking a much darker approach to their orchestration. While still keeping with their ‘gazed roots, the band has announced that they plan to release an EP, titled Fever, on May 8th, along with planned performances at next week’s Industrial St. Fair in Denton and a show at Dan’s Silverleaf on the day of the release.

We, for one, support evolution and wish these guys the best of luck. If this video is any indication, we’re in for something special with Sundress.
