So here is my live music picks for the month of April in the D/FW area. I haven't gone to any shows (not counting bands that I didn't know their names) this year other than the Of Montreal show back in Feburary which was pretty damn good. So this month I have one priority show and the rest are maybes.
--Mon 4/2--Explosions In The Sky/the pAper chAse-Granada Theater-Dallas
Explosions in the Sky - Day One
This Explosions In The Sky show is the one priority show just because I have yet to see Explosions In The Sky play live and thats just not right.
--Wed 4/4-TV On The Radio-Granada Theater-Dallas
TV On the Radio - Wolf Like Me (video on youtube)
This is a maybe, TV on the Radio is shit hot right now therefore I don't like them enough to see them at a packed venue unless I get bored.
--Thu 4/5-Ratatat/120 Days/Despot-Ridglea Theater-Ft. Worth
Biggie Smalls - Party & Bullshit (Ratatat remix)
I rekindled my appreciation of Ratatat with the new remix bootleg and I've been listening to Despot lately so I might go. Actually this a pretty good show, I should go.
--Fri 4/6-Ted Leo-Granada Theater-Dallas
Ted Leo - Ghosts
I have to be up early on Saturday but that hasn't stopped me before so we'll see...maybe.
--Sun 4/8-Yo La Tengo-Granada Theater-Dallas
Yo La Tengo - Beanbag Chair
The new album is motivation enough to see them live but its a Sunday show.
--Thu 4/26-Hot Chip-Granada Theater-Dallas
Hot Chip - Over and Over (video on youtube)
Now if this show was a year ago today this show would be more of a priority.
There are couple other great bands stopping by DFW worth checking out, I referenced Good Records.
