Thursday, April 24 at The Palladium Ballroom could be the best local live music night in awhile. Ghosthustler, Record Hop and The Party are getting me there and with Polyphonic Spree as the headliner to this FREE show, this has got to be a lock for how you should spend your evening this Thursday. Visit quickdfw.com for more details.
Hello everyone. Just wanted to make sure you were aware of the party tonight with A- Trak. He is on tour with “The Rub” djs from Brooklyn nyc. This party is deffinatly something you will not want to miss out on.
I think the night starts a little early….see you out.
It is going to be going on this Wednesday! The Flash Light Party will be battling The Party in a one on one dj deathmatch. Well nobody is going to die but the tables are going to be hot Wednesday. The Flashlight Party is releasing a mix cd this night. Don’t miss out and here about how the party was. See you kids out! Shout out to my man Ben…CTRL, AtL, Delete!!!!
Whats good Dallas!!!!!!! I’ve got something else for you to come check out this Sunday night. My man Wanz a dj @ the Cavern on Tuesdays turned me on to this. He will be battling and I think he is a champ with some previous battles. This is a bunch of kids on laptops battling each other doing lives sets with some sound equipment attached. This is going to be crazy! Peep the flyer….
This Sunday April 30 @ Double Wide @ 9pm
It is Wednesday I’m aware, but wanted to let everyone know about Tuesdays @ Zyphers on Lower Greenville. I don’t really know much about the spot. It was nice and not really grimey but my friend Phooka and Donny play up there on Tuesdays! Check the flyer below. They had 3 wells I believe for drink specials. Mostly drum and bass styles all night.
There is another party if you are into House music this Saturday. April 22nd @ Zubar on Lower Greenville. Will not be out to this party. I will be at Spankrock w/Nature this saturday! @ Haileys. Don’t forget to check out spankrock —-> www.myspace.com/spankrock – and see why Urb labeled them under Next 100 list!
Check my earlier post for the Spankrock show!!!
see everyone out!!
I really don’t want to come off like a hypocrite here. After all, I have so many opportunities to do that on other issues. But the recent ballyhooed TABC crackdown on “public intoxication” in bars just makes me want to make a couple of points.
First, anyone who has been out and about with my circle of friends knows we get loud, profane and boisterous. We argue silly and inane points, yell at each other from across the bar, and garner enough looks from the uninitiated to make anyone skeptical. This is regardless of how much alcohol has been consumed.
Last night, after picking my roommate up from the airport, we went to No Frills Grill. Since I’m still boozeless through Lent, I didn’t have one sip of alcohol — but if a field agent uses the same criteria they used when they arrested Burton Byers, the guy in an Irving hotel bar, I would have so been in jail Tuesday night.
Second, Our Fearless Mayor Laura Miller actually signed off on this operation. At a time when Dallas is already trying to mend fences with the convention business — after a decade of twiddling their thumbs and watching millions of tourism dollars fly elsewhere — the city is now the laughingstock of the nation. Again. Never mind that “Operation Last Call” is state-wide: the perception is that it’s happening primarily in Dallas because of the Byers story. Yeah, we need this.
I’ve been riding a whirlwind of moving to and from Dallas. The 1st of the month is looming and I’m trying to head out in time. With the countless trips to Dallas and back, I’m realizing why a lot of you guys in Dallas are missing out on some of the great things that have been happening in Denton…just because you don’t want to make the drive. BUT if you are really looking for something great to do tonight, think about making that trip up here for the Art Prostitute farewell party at Hailey’s! It’s going to be well worth the trip, and this is coming from a very tired and sick of driving guy who is beat from three days straight of moving furniture and boxes…but I’ll be there anyway…and even drive back to Dallas when it’s all done. So I hope to see some fellow Dallasites there…can I call myself a Dallasite if I only have actually “lived” there one day as of yet!?

I’ll be there recording schtuff for the next episode of DAMradio, so get your ass on out and support a really great cause (the American Diabetes Association) and a really great man (Jerry Haynes).
