1/07/09 – EL PASO HOT BUTTON/The BLACKS/UME – The Lounge on Elm St. Doors at 8pm. $5 for 21+, $8 for 17+
As I have stated numerous times, EL PASO HOT BUTTON is a one-man dissonant punk act in vein of Jon Spencer Blues meets White Stripes. He is currently on Little Mafia and US Two Records (the label I co-own). The BLACKS are a San Franciscan/NYC garage rock trio fronted by a female. Also, fronted by a woman, is experimental punk rock band, UME from Austin. I have seen UME about three times in Austin and it is nice bringing them up to Dallas to open up the show.
