Sunday, June 15, 2008 Playlist: 6/15/08

I'm doing an all female vocalist playlist this week in honor of the Can't Stop The Serenity musical showcase happening this Saturday from 5-8 pm at Barley House. The show will feature performances by Inner Frequency, Lovie, Camille Cortinas of Fishing For Comets, and Kristina Morland. Cover is $10, and the profits go to the charity Equality Now.

By the way, I forewarned for people to upload their music to, and since no one seemed to heed my warning, I not only followed through on the Jessica Simpson threat, but I added some LeAnn Rimes and Kelly Clarkson for good (or bad) measure. Next time, heed my advice more seriously.

  1. "Dream I Call You", Annie Benjamin

  2. "Pass on All Your Fears", THe BAcksliders

  3. "Move Along", Blue Petal

  4. "Peaches and Cream", Domestic Science Club

  5. "Good Vs. Evil", Eden Automatic

  6. "Circle", Edie Brickell and New Bohemians

  7. "Telescope Eyes", Eisley - By the way, I debated on whether to permit this song, since I don't usually regard Tyler as part of the D/FW Metroplex area. However, since most people seem to look at Eisley as a "Dallas" band, I let it slide. Besides, I was kinda desperate, and it beats a double dose of Ms. Simpson.
  8. "Garden of the Sun", Emily Elbert

  9. "On & On", Erykah Badu

  10. "Captured in This Frame", Fishing For Comets

  11. "Lies", Fishing For Comets - Since Camille is one of the artists playing, I figured I'd do a double dose of her music.

  12. "I Think I'm in Love with You", Jessica Simpson- Why John Mellencamp gave her permission to do this to "Jack and Diane" is beyond me.

  13. "Since U Been Gone", Kelly Clarkson - Yeah, yeah, yeah, act all pretentious and stuff and sneer at me for putting this on. You know you like it.

  14. "How Do I Live", LeAnn Rimes- This concludes the Top 40 segement of the playlist.

  15. "It's All Gone Wrong", Pennywhistle Park

  16. "The Quitter in Me", PiNKSTON

  17. "Poprox", Record Hop

  18. "Cigarette", Sara Radle

  19. "This Is a Test (Radio Edit)", Shock Of Pleasure

  20. "Sleep", Tree Wave

Oh, and I promise my readers to get more material out this week, and I also promise a major concert announcement coming soon.

Here's Your Show Recommendation, and You're Welcome

Is this the only show happening tonight? Of course not. I will say, however, that this show eclipses all other shows happening tonight. You know I love THe BAcksliders, and you know I love their new CD, You're Welcome. Needless to say, I will be right by the Double-Wide stage, enjoying the rock spectacle that is THe BAcksliders. If that isn't enough excitement for you, it's a double CD Release Party, as Dragna release their new CD tonight (sorry, I couldn't find a name for the disc). Binary Sunrise opens up the show, and I've been wanting to check this band out for quite some time. I hope to see a lot of familiar faces at the DW tonight. Feel free to come join me, buy yourself a CD, and while you're at it, feel free to buy me a drink as well!

Ladies and Gentlemen, May I Have Your Attention?

Yes, I have a special request for some of the female vocalists in Dallas. I am trying to create a playlist centered exclusively around female vocalists. The playlist will hopefully debut on June 15th. Why am I doing an all female playlist? It is in honor of the Can't Stop the Serenity benefit concert taking place on June 21st at Barley House. All profits from the evening go to Equality Now, an organization devoted to helping end discrimination and acts of violence towards women all over the world. The concert will include performances from Kristina Morland, Camille Cortinas (lead vocalist of Fishing for Comets), Lovie, and Inner Frequency. Of the four acts listed, only Fishing For Comet's music in part of the music catalog. I would STRONGLY encourage the other acts to upload their music to so that I can feature it on this and future playlists.

In addition, I'd like to list a few other acts, both female soloists and female fronted bands, whose music I would like to see on the website:

  • Becky Middleton

  • Kristin Leigh

  • Kristy Kruger

  • Lauren Gifford

  • The Liking Strikes

  • Romp Almighty

  • Sara Donaldson

  • Sarah Jaffe

  • Shiny Around the Edges

  • Somebody's Darling

This is by no means a comprehensive list, but rather a small sampling of some of the great female talent in Dallas. So please, if you're on this list, upload your music to The picking are a little slim, and if they don't get better, I may be reduced to putting Jessica Simpson on the playlist. You don't want that, do you?

Monday, June 2, 2008 Playlist: 6/2/08

A little late with the playlist, but better late than never, right? Between being sick and personal crap, I didn't feel like giving the usual commentary on each song. I'll just say a few quick things though. I put THe BAcksliders and Binary Sunrise on the playlist in honor of the CD Release Party for You're Welcome that will be on Friday night at Double-Wide. Also, if you haven't fallen in love with "Supernatural", either you haven't heard the song yet, or you are suffering from an acute case of lack of musical taste. Either way, you should be totally into that song. As for the others, well, all I can think to say is I like the songs, and that's enough said.

  1. "Wedding Day", THe BAcksliders

  2. "2005", Binary Sunrise

  3. "Bells", Black Tie Dynasty

  4. "The Basement Theory", the cut*off

  5. "Quick & Clean", Ella Minnow

  6. "Every Time I Get Close to You", Eleven Hundred Springs

  7. "All You Do Is Crazy", Fate Lions

  8. "Good Day!", The Happy Bullets

  9. "Some Bridges Are for Burning", I Love Math

  10. "Miss Sugar Pie", Johnny Lloyd Rollins

  11. "Fine Line", Macon Greyson

  12. "Never Had Control", Mur

  13. "Mockingbird", Nicholas Altobelli

  14. "The Quitter in Me", PiNKSTON

  15. "American Wierdo", PPT (Featuring Glen Reynolds)

  16. "Supernatural", Rahim Quazi

  17. "Slide Shows", Rose County Fair

  18. "Hang On", Salim Nourallah

  19. "Surround Me", Tim Miller

  20. "Sleep", Tree Wave
