In what's likely to be remembered as one of the best Dallas shows of '09, Los Angeles' Health and Ohio's Times New Viking will share a bill in town before heading off to Austin for Fun Fun Fun Fest. And, for each of these acts, 2009 has already been a good year. For Times New Viking, 2009 has seen the band release its second post-Stiltbreeze Records album on Matador. Health, meanwhile, released Get Color as a follow-up to the band's brilliant 2007 self-titled debut. And since both bands' records have garnered enough positive reviews that they seem destined to pop up on many a best-albums-of-the-year list, it's fitting that the show would also feature a local act of the same caliber.
To help open the show, show promoter Parade of Flesh has booked Denton's Teenage Cool Kids, which has just returned to the region after a three-month international tour in support of Foreign Lands—the band's best work to date and a clear front-runner for best local release of 2009.

All three acts are known for their unforgettable, kinetic live shows, so the bill's already an explosive powder keg of a night even without adding Kiwi-pop/punk act Axemen.
