Next Month's info and preview videos

In May, I resume having shows:

Thursday, May 8th at Double-Wide | 3510 Commerce St | 75226 FLYER
THRONES (Salem, OR - Kill Rock Stars)- one man, one legend: Joe Preston has released solo albums under the name "Thrones" for almost 15 years. Ex bassist for the MELVINS, HIGH ON FIRE and EARTH. Watch in amazement as he constructs and fuses metal, punk and noise piece by piece, loop by loop. ONE of only TWO Texas shows this year!!
The HIGH COST OF LIVING - (Semi)instrumental hardcore metal trio from Austin who opened for the Sword the last time they played Ft. Worth. They are the next GENESIS of metal in Austin. KIDDING! But they do pull a 'phil collins' on some songs. Some dude from the SWORD is recording their upcoming full length.
aKKolyte - brothers gonzalez' grindcore two-piece awesomeness.
21+, 9PM. $8

ECSTATIC SUNSHINE - Experimental, ambient and guitar-only punk duo from Baltimore on Cardboard records (owned by BJ and Dan of Parts & Labor).

They are on a co-headlining tour with tigerbeat 6 legend CEX(alt link), whose entire set will be comprised of Steely Dan samples. Yes, STEELY DAN. It will be completely entertaining and accessible to those who want to shake their rumps. The night will also feature dj sets throughout the evening from GHOSTHUSTLER and SCHWA.
