Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti / Puro Instinct @ Hailey’s

Listen, all the info you could ever want about Ariel Pink has been provided by other sites, and they have done one hell of a job doing so. I suggest you listen to them and make it a point to catch this show.

Miniature Tigers / The Spinto Band / MATAS @ The Loft

Hey, kids, be prepared to get over yourselves and love the new MATAS record when it hits. I heard the mixes recently and was blown away, as the band has taken their game up three or four levels to deliver one of the better releases coming out at the end of the year.

Dunes / True Widow / The Bizzaro Kids @ The Nightmare

The Bizzaro Kids’ blend of visuals and music is one of the most exciting things going on in the area that almost nobody knows about. Make it a point to catch these guys and rethink your view on what can be done with a three-piece band.

Rundown: 7/9 to 7/11

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.

Rundown: 7/8/10

8 Jul

The Schoolhouse Presents: Spirits of the Red City @ The Hydrant

This is a free show that Charlie Hunter vouched for, so that’s all you need to know. Why don’t you start your evening with some music.

True Widow @ Double Wide

True Widow local performances are becoming a rare thing, make sure you catch the band while you can.

Leg Sweeper / Sir Name / Darktown Strutters / Fungi Girls @ City Tavern

Sir Name is the most exciting project in the area, I’ve thought so since January and the fact that it’s finally making its way to the club circuit just gives me hop that it finds a foothold.

LeBronapalooza @ 9 on ESPN

A lot of us make regrettable decisions at 25, only one of us get’s to a destroy a city with one.

ADD:

Paul Slavens & Joel North @ Good Records

We’re sorry we forgot to mention this, but this free show features Paul playing songs off his latest release, and like we’ve said many times before it’s one of the better albums put out this year.

Rundown: 8/31 to 9/6

31 Aug

I am trying to figure out weather or not gambling on the LLWS makes me a bad person. Yes I won, and yes when I made the wager I did so with the caveat that I would donate 10% of any ill gotten means toward my local LL organization. But, I still wagered on the achievements of a group of young men therefore making anything they accomplished cheapened in my eyes. Instead of respecting, and appreciating the feat it would always be that time I won, or lost money on the LLWS.

Though to be honest letting the winnings ride on the Bears pretty much answers that question, and letting it ride again on the Texans proved that it’s really not even a question at this point.

Anyway it’s free week in Denton, and that means shows galore, including a massive show we’re throwing on Saturday. check it out after the jump.
