Scene, Heard

Smirnoff sucks them in; The Rocket Summer waits 'til fall; Jeff Buckely's mom; North Texas Music Festival jab; Plus, much, much more

Rocking, rolling, whatnot: Laura Scarborough Synthesia, featuring Earl Harvin, performs August 18 at the Gypsy Tea Room; Speedtrucker, the new favorite band of Metallica's James Hetfield, is at Muddy Waters every Thursday (look for their new CD on August 26); DJ Karl spins classic punk and new wave every Monday at The Cavern; Rock N Roll Disciples (managed by the great Turner Van Blarcum) and Dixie Witch hit Bar of Soap on August 18, followed by Gospel Swingers the next night; and The Riverboat Gamblers and The Hellions play at Club Clearview on August 17...

Thanks to Smirnoff's new sponsorship deal, expect to see more out-of-place shows -- remember last year's sadly under-attended Elvis Costello gig? -- at the venue formerly known as Coca-Cola Starplex. No offense, but it's like booking a needle to drop in an airplane hangar.

We're not sure if this means Jena's Allgood Café is officially open for bidness, but the new Deep Ellum venue hosts its first show on August 25, when Geno Delafose & French Rockin' Boogie play an early show at the club/restaurant on Main. We are sure about this, however: Beginning in September, Todd Deatherage and Eleven Hundred Springs' Matt Hillyer will play at Jena's every Tuesday. While we're on the subject, if you can't wait to see and hear Deatherage, he continues to play every Wednesday at Lakewood Bar and Grill, and on August 18, he'll be performing at CD World, trying to move copies of his new five-song CD. Take a few off his hands. And to continue playing leg-bone-is-connected-to-the-knee-bone, Queens of the Stone Age will play in-store at Good Records on August 17 at 6 p.m. You know, we're just glib enough to string this entire column together with a series of off-the-cuff segues. Please don't make us.
