As usual, the latest Good/Bad Art Collective benefit--Benefit 60: "Hot Buns in the Summer--benefits everyone. The Denton outfit will "celebrate the new school year and Labor Day weekend" with an all-day (and probably most of the night) concert on September 2 at the G/BAC compound featuring two stages and grub courtesy of Steve's BBQ. Performers taking one of the two stages include: Jeweled Handles, Mandarin, Stumptone, Lift to Experience, Lo-Fi Chorus, [DARYL], Those Peabodys, Pointy Show Factory, The Secret Machines of Captain Audio, Mission Giant, A Roman Scandal, DJ ReRog, DJ Thesis, The Olive Group, Heaven is a Hotel, and Vena Cava. Doors open at 2 p.m., and it only costs $6 to get through 'em...
The sounds of Deep Ellum, and beyond: The New Year (yep, it's that band) makes its Dallas debut on August 25 at Gypsy Tea Room, with Centro-matic; Back to School Hip-Hop Jelly (as opposed to jam, get i-...ah, screw it) at Rubber Gloves Rehearsal Studios on August 26; Band on the run Flickerstick hosts a CD release party for its debut, Welcoming Home the Astronauts, on August 26 at the Curtain Club, with Pop Unknown and Rope Lab; Pleasant Grove and Little Grizzly stop by Liquid Lounge on August 24--so come by and wish Pleasant Grove singer-guitarist Marcus Striplin a happy birthday.
Finally, as much as we like Weener--whose next scheduled show, unfortunately, happened to be at the now-charred Rick's Place--we're even more excited that the original (uh, Weezer) is at long last coming back to town and will perform September 12 at Deep Ellum Live with Dynamite Hack. If it were up to us, there would have been a different opening band. Take a guess.
