It's a great time to be in Sacto or Davis this week 'cos Freeform KDVS 90.3 FM is presenting Tyvek twice this week: on Wednesday 2/25 at the UC-Davis Coffeehouse with Th' Losin' Streaks and GGreen, and on Friday 02/27 in Sacto at Luigi's Fungarden with San Kazakgascar, Desario (ex-Holiday Flyer and Rocketship there for ya!), and Not an Airplane. Of course, Tyvek are one of the preeminent funmaker bands on the planet today. Another hot show is happening at the "Goobertarium" on Thursday 2/26 (1819 23rd Street in Sac) with Ganglians, Dadfag, and one of my tip-top favorite discoveries of 2008, Long Legged Woman, who finally have copies of their self-released LP which is outstanding! It's kinda like the Mayyors in that they can pummel you severely and relentlessly with mean riffs and braincell-devastating scuzz, but you can also go wild and party with them. And there's a little smack of Dinosaur Jr. in there. (The right smack to be sure!) Sometimes they mellow out and play kinda pretty. It all comes together brilliantly. 9pm start. And if you're early, you can even catch Sam McPheeters (you remember him from Born Against, Men's Recovery Project, etc.) reading from his CLOG fiction zine at Time Tested Books (1114 21st Street in Sac @ 7pm).

Of course, the new Dan Melchior und Das Menace 2xLP is thee clincher among his bevy of new releases for 2009, but it's not quite out yet, so stay patient for a little while. Nary a dud track in the lot! But I've not found time yet to cuddle up to it since I only got my paws on it today, and my mind's not yet come back to earth since listening again to the newest CDR by Matt K. Shrugg, Mentor to Wall. Ten tracks, two thirds of it is really rockin' in the vein of his Plastic Idol 7"es that came out last year, and the other third gets really wild, like Matt's got Ben Wallers drunk on absinthe in the grips of a headlock while he wrestles him to the Rashied Ali's house (he's been rumored to be livin' in Sacto for years, y'know!) for a ruthless shock to the psyche. You just hafta hear tracks 9 & 10 back-to-back to see what I mean. Maybe I'll spin those both next time. I really wish this guy had a band together that could pull these songs off live, but he'd probably need to clone another four Matt K's. This guy plays with a rare quotient of soul, ferocity, and precision, and he's uncommonly long on ideas to work a definitive rock 'n' roll song for maximum catchiness, cleverness, and impact. Seriously, some DIY label honcho would be super-shrewd to issue this on a 12". It is absolutely vinyl-worthy next-level futurepunk.
