This is Awesome: Young & Brave soundtrack Planned Parenthood of North Texas’ “50th Anniversary of the the Pill” video

23 Jun

This video just popped up over on the PPNTX facebook page, in celebration of the pill’s 50th anniversary PPNTX chose to produce a short video featuring women not only showing why the appreciate the pill,  a slide show of facts about that little life saver, but also from one of our favorite local acts the always socially conscious Young & Brave. Needless to say we’re proud of the band, and are more than happy to share the video after the jump. Continue reading

Field Trip! DBB at the Planned Parenthood Rock Your Body Politic

27 Jan

We like field trips, and we really like having people freelance. So with that in mind I went to the Planned Parenthood Rock Your Body Politic last Thursday, dragging along an old editor friend of mine in hopes of getting new opinions on things I was ill-equiped to have a valid opinion on. I can tell you about the music, I can go on, and on about how Aaron Eash, of Giggle Party, was as on his game as I’d ever seen him. How he underwent a full transformation on stage, evolving from a quiet and friendly guy, to some type of Carnival Barker/hip-hop hype man hybrid, that worked the crowd into a ruckus, by not only playing his guitar behind his back, but doing so for most of the set. I could tell you how the professional approach Young & Brave took to the stage further cemented my belief that the band is on its way to bigger things. Hell, I could tell you about new Happy Bullet songs, crossdressing Lady GaGa impersonators and how the Girl in the Coma crowd resembled an issue of Love & Rockets.

But, what  I should do is give my old friend, and editor, Ellen Maraccini a spot to share her thoughts on a cause she truly believes in. What follows are her thoughts, and a pretty awesome rant. Continue reading

Month of List(s): The Best Things to happen Locally in ’09 part 1

29 Dec

It’s been a rather wonderful year locally. We’ve seen bands sign to labels and break through nationally and internationally. We’ve seen new bands pop up and bring something different to the area and established acts release work we always knew they had in them. With that in mind, we’re tossing out three days’ worth of things we found exciting. This list is in no particular order and we’re trying to cover as much ground as possible, so apologies for things we miss.

I really enjoyed this the other night

I can’t help but feel a pang of sorrow over the loss of my beloved The Mendoza Line, but Young & Brave‘s eponymous first full length gives me hope Continue reading

Snap Shot: Young & Brave

4 Sep

(ed. All this week we’re doing band “Snap Shots” of the groups we have performing on Saturday, the 5th. This is one of those.)

I’ve only caught Young & Brave once, and then only in passing, but the general consensus amongst those I frequently talk to, and myself, is they’re pretty damn great. So when the possibility of them playing this show arose, I jumped at the opportunity. In an effort to gain a little insight into one of the most buzzed about local groups, I sent them some questions. Check out their answers after the jump.

Rundown:7/20 to 7/26

20 Jul

I can’t believe they’re letting Martellus Bennett host the DOMAs, it’s a slightly worse idea then CGI Guinea Pigs who fight terrorist. Really anyone who has paid attention to this guys exploits on the net over the last year knows that this is a disaster waiting to happen. In fact let’s set some odds for what he might end up doing

Forget he’s only getting to do this because he get’s paid to play a kids game: 1-2

Mispronounce one of the band names:even

Say something incredulous that shows he’s sort of oblivious to the sacrifices of his forebears: 3-1

Unknowingly insult the guy who’s checks allow him to act like an over sized 12 year old with a brand new copy of “The Complete Chappelle’s Show”: 5-1

Insist he be allowed to perform a freestyle/skit: 5-1

Mispronounce two of the band names: 8-1

Rhyme “Romo” with “Homo”…again: 12-1

Have a clue who any of the performers are: 50-1

I know I sound like an ass for this, but as someone of a similar age, and back ground I feel I can say youth is no excuse for ignorance.

Anyway, time to talk music. It’s abit of a calm week, other then the DOMA’s & our show on Tuesday, and the rather awesome show at the Handsome Kitten on Friday.
