Polka Dot Dot Dot

You know what I love and not embarrassed to tell the whole world (or at least whoever decides to give me the pleasure of reading this): the myspace. It has allowed so much music out there to be discovered at the tips of my fingers. I have found so many great bands through myspace. The one I have been listening to the most is Polka Dot Dot Dot.

POLKA DOT DOT DOT is a band from Olympia, Washington. They are a trio featuring Jordan O Jordan, Onyx of Olympia, and Miss Spindleheart. I remember the pleasure of seeing them in Amarillo during this summer and it was a great show. There were not many people at this little coffee shop called The 806, but still they put on a great show. They took everything from banjos, guitars, bells, ukuleles, handclaps, shakers, and saws to make their delightful sound. If I could give you one little tidbit, it would be to check out this band from Olympia called Polka Dot Dot Dot.

Thee OhSees, Sic Alps, Ty Segall, & The Numerators

“This is like…hypnotizing…” said the girl to my left when Lubbock locals, The Numerators started off the show at Bash’s last Saturday, September 20th.  From their neon shorts to their brilliant crowd involving punkcrunkrapscreamfest, they definitely stole the show for me.  Ty Segall was charming as ever, always involving the crowd by promoting the making of a unique sound giving the audience instruments to participate in his music rather than just listen.  He made it feel more like a jam session than a show.  As more people came in and as more drinks were bought by the time the Sic Alps went on, everyone was dancing.  If there is one thing I love about them, its watching drummer Matt Hartman sing where the whole microphone is practically down his throat.  Classic.  Thee OhSees wrapped up the show with the amazing duets between singers John Dwyer and Brigid Dawson.  Lubbock always loves when Thee OhSees make a stop to show us just how to throw a nonstop dance party full of just enough alcohol and too much nicotine in a tiny room in metro Lubbock. What could be better…
