It only takes a spark: DFW’s The Burning Hotels

In music, music video on May 19, 2009 at 10:21 am

I’m sure the phrase “burning hotels” has been a temptation for the band on their long east coast road trip, but Ft. Worth’s The Burning Hotels are swinging one more time through the south before crossing state lines back home. Their upbeat rock-dance mix mines similar ground to The Killers and Placebo with a dash of moroseness similar to Lovedrug. What it is though is very tight, very likable, and from all accounts across the great state of Texas, a very excellent live show. The Eight Five Mirrors EP is available at their MySpace and on iTunes.

Those Ataris? For real?

In media, music, music video on May 15, 2009 at 6:20 pm

Glancing through my local event listings and noticed that the Ataris (yes, the boys of freakin’ summer) are still playing shows, still going on tour, with…wait for it…a new album this summer. Who likes The Ataris anymore? Aren’t they stuck in the dreaded no man’s land? The mainstream doesn’t know they exist anymore after their flavor of the week status has ended, yet they’re original fans remember the betrayal. No place for the Ataris to go. Maybe they should bank on whole new level of nostalgia and call themselves The N64s.

Tour dates (in case you’re interested) and the “Boys of Summer” vid for (old time’s sake) after the jump.
