Bright Look at Dark Side
Friday: The septet plays a free, "intimate" show at Good Records (1808 Lower Greenville Ave.) at 7 p.m.; free beer, wine and food. DJ Gorilla Vs. Bear (yes, that guy) spins before and after.
Friday: ...later that evening, the guys walk one block down the road and play a more official concert at the Cavern, starting around 10 p.m. The guys will play the entire album from start to finish (and maybe some oldies-n-goodies too).
Saturday: Dentonites can get their taste at J&J's Pizza (118 West Oak St.) starting around 8 p.m. The guys are calling this a somewhat "open mike" show, which matches nicely with the "parlor" spirit they talk about in this week's feature. Could be mighty special; Emil Rapstine from the Angelus opens.
Friday, May 26: The guys' Fort Worth CD release show takes place at the Metrognome Collective (visit its Web site for proper directions) starting around 8 p.m. Pegasus Now and the Folly Fandango open.
And, as promised, here's an exclusive video clip recorded by yours truly (don't quit my day job, right?) shortly after our interview. This is the band's first "public" performance of the title track of their new album, Everybody Has A Dark Side, at their rehearsal space in east Dallas. For those of you who normally ignore the Observer's suggestions about independent music, I really hope you give this band a fair shake; you won't find music like this anywhere else in the metroplex. Hope to see you at one of the CD release shows. --Sam Machkovech
