Baboon, Doosu, Pinkston, and The Morning People will perform on October 14 at the Lewisville Amphitheatre, with all proceeds benefiting the Lena Pope Home, a foundation for abused children. The whole shindig is called The Hope Show for obvious reasons, and it runs from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m., with food and beverages available if you're so inclined. It only costs $7, $10 for those under 21, and either way, it's a small price to pay when you think about where the cash is going. If you want/need more info, head to www.thehopeshow.com. We know this won't make up for years of using our powers for evil instead of good, but hey, anything's worth a shot once. You know, except for communism. And cauliflower. Oh, and Louisiana...
Rubber Gloves Rehearsal Studios is--gasp!--opening its bar this week, starting with the Joan of Arc/[DARYL]/Designer bill on October 5. Really, it's gonna be open. Seriously. A bar. The bar. The one they've been talking about for the last year or two. In all seriousness, we do wish them all the luck in the world, which, since they're trying to do something in Little D, they're going to need. After all, from the looks of things, the club's outdoor stage will never be allowed to open again, because the city wants 50 more parking spots that there isn't the money or space for. Denton, putting the F and U back into fun. Drop by the new bar, congratulate owner Josh Baish and the staff, and start badgering them about the air conditioning. Especially since summer starts again in a few weeks...
Since you're already going out anyway: Pleasant Grove and Little Grizzly perform October 5 at the Curtain Club; Centro-matic and The Falcon Project celebrate the recent release of their new discs (South San Gabriel Songs/Music and Lights Karma Action, respectively) with in-store sets at Good Records on October 7 at 3 p.m.; Weener plays at the Curtain Club on October 7, with Kissinger and Stereo Rookie; Budapest One (which just put out its second album, The Crooner Rides Again) is at the Brickhaus Café in Denton on October 6, with One Piece and Frame-Set. And that's not even counting the At the Drive-In gig on October 8 at Trees. Or you can just stay at home and drink away the pain of your sad, pathetic life.
