gvsb presents: White Denim, PVC Street Gang, Harlem, & Fight Bite | live in Dallas

We are super excited to present this lineup of four of the best bands in TX, put together by our friends from Denton's PVC Street Gang:

White Denim
PVC Street Gang
Fight Bite

Saturday, June 13 @ Harry's Pastime Tavern

Couldn't be any more psyched about this lineup, really, which stands out in a month already packed with amazing shows.

white denim :: mirrored and reverse
pvc street gang :: cutlass
harlem :: no true love (dixie cups cover)
fight bite :: swissex lover

No advanced tickets. 21+. I would get there early. Pastime Tavern is small.

Did you know that there are other Texas bands besides white denim and those douche-bags in Harlem? There are. Just saying.

Anon 2am is just mad because you aren't writing about his shitty band.

I don't think the fact that I left the comment at 2am has anything to do with the message.

You must admit, you do write a lot about those bands. I understand, it's your blog, you like them, do what you want. But you aren't exactly expanding your reader's horizons by continually blogging about them or booking them.

My original post was a bit snarky (on second thought maybe 2am did have something to do with it). And, I do appreciate you publishing my post, that was nice.

You're a Texas based blog. Let's really get down and find some acts that nobody is talking about. I enjoy your blog and I want it to challenge me.

By the way, I'm not in a band. I'm just an avid Austin music fan. If I did have a band, I would concede that it would be shitty.

well i'm always open to learning about new bands, but i'm only one person, and i write about the bands i listen to. i think if you go back through the archives you'll see i was talking about a number of these bands (white denim, st. vincent, brazos, etc.) years ago when no one else was, but i'm not going to write about bands i don't like just because no one's heard of them.

and with that said, i've written about a number of new TX bands over the last few months that i think are exciting (fight bite, pvc street gang, fergus & geronimo, neon indian)

feel free to suggest any great bands that you feel i'm missing out on

just to clarify, though, i don't really see myself as a "texas blog" and if white denim were from NY or London or anywhere else, i'd still write about them with equal frequency. there aren't that many good bands that i feel inspired to blog about, period, which is why i post about the same bands relatively often. if you want a broader scope, read Pitchfork or stereogum or any site that has a bigger editorial staff. i don't feel any responsibility to broaden anyone's horizons, i just talk about stuff i like

re: Pitchfork, did you mean to say, "broader editorial staffs, watered down content, confused identities, stolen/poor/lackluster taste, and a scorching case of herpes"????

Just curious.

Fair enough. I guess I was misguided in thinking you were trying to educate your readers. If you're just posting what you like, then there is no argument.

I do read a lot of blogs and listen to good radio stations, so I do feel like I have a broad scope. I appreciate your clarification.

Happy blogging ...

Harlem are excellent, Free Drugs is one of my albums of the year so far.

Looks like a great line up all round. Pity I am in London.

PVC Pipe Smokers suck.

Oh... "Comment Moderation" Well PVC Pipe Gang's disgusting attitude threatens to undermine any efforts to create a supportive community of independent musicians in the Dallas area. Specifically their attitude towards touring DIY bands which reflects poorly on the Dallas "scene" as a whole. They're a band that this blog should not associate itself with if it claims to be a supporter of independent music and the community and mutual respect that independent music requires to flourish.
