And the point gets driven home.

Name one person outside of Texas that thinks Autolux is fantastic (planet). You can't.

Don't get me wrong, I enjoy their music. It has a shoegaze feel with varied sounds and textures from more than just guitars, but the locals think they're the greatest thing since sliced bread.

Lots of people in DC like them. I'll let you know what Lawrence, KS thinks after I see them on Saturday.

do you think they're an austin band? :)

srsly, you might have them confused with ghostland or trail of dead? wasn't really a full crowd last night. i don't follow music media but i've always gotten the impression that they were widely critically acclaimed. i dunno mang, that Greg Edwards guy has a following.

I actually meant Houston, because I r tarded. I knew three people from Houston that all loved Failure and Autolux, and I did think they were from there. AFAIK you're in Austin, and that confuzzled me.

That being said, they are from LA according to Wikipedia.

Yup Greg has been working out of LA for 15 years at least

I remember you saying you knew a band that loved these guys. Now with that you're onto something... I'd guess that 75% of people who still list Failure as one of their favorite bands are in a band themselves.

Houston music pfffftt ... Ghetto Boyz is the best that place will ever produce :lol:

Anyways last night we had a good hollerfest about which Austin bands/sounds we hate. We (as a city) disowned Fastball and Blue October. There's actually a ton of awful music here, with a strong undercurrent of good shit. Basically if you can hear the Austin in a band, they suck. With the exception of Spoon.

Hey, don't knock Fastball. They may possibly be the greatest band to ever walk the Earth. Even pigeons are afraid to shit on them, which they did to the second greatest band.

Autolux was amazing. The crowd was small and really into it. I know some people drove a long way for the show. The crowd would have been larger, but Pavement was in KC. I would not hesitate to see Autolux again.

Some dude in the bathroom: "That was greg, that was gred edwards! He is the greatest musician ever and I want to give him a hug. I met trent reznor and didn't want to hug him." He then went on to assert that Failure is the greatest band, ever.

Rush tickets for me and another DGR member for May 2011 :-) Something to wait for over the cold period :-)
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

None really. They're too loud and according to t-shirt slogan equations that means I'm too old. If a band isn't in my top 5 ever I ain't going.
Some discs of various sizes, weight, plastic and mold.
