History Drama @ Five Points Theater

2 comments
The fallowing feature is just one kind of the interesting screenings that you could expect to find at the Five Points Theater. I really have to support this place that is a bit overlooked right now. They have shown some really great things; The history documentary about the origin of the guitar was said to be riveting but not enough showed to view it.

In Search of Oblivion: by John Touchton

10 comments
Wednesday, Oct. 28: the Japanther show, at T.S.I. was where I was going to be; to tell this story through my own recollection, might take a bit of embellishment. It was one of those oblivion-seeking nights and I had broken a covenant with myself, deciding to mix liquor and energy drinks, which allows the body to continue raging after the mind has already waved the white flag. Arriving at T.S.I with a stomach full of Four Loco, vodka left over from the A.N.T.E. Up tournament, countless beer, and a Red Bull to boot, already had me foaming at the mouth. Where do I begin?
Let’s start with Chicken and Whiskey, which might have been a less lethal combination than the concoction of berserk I had already consumed. All I remember is that before they played, I was doing a mixture of blow and gunpowder in the bathroom with Macho Man Randy Savage. They call this “brown brown” in the African jungles, but he insisted on calling it “buff ice.” When I looked up from the broken mirror, lying on the floor of the men’s stall, Randy was gone. I assumed that he had pussies to pile drive and rap albums to record, so I didn’t question his disappearance. C. and W. had already started by the time I made my way to the dance floor, which had been turned into a slip-and-slide of beer, sweat, and possibly blood, as I’ve been told I hit my head more than once. Don’t worry though, my ears aren’t ringing anymore and they have only bled twice since that night. Just as they were finishing their set, some drunken asshole from the crowd flew onto the stage, knocking over keyboards like bowling pins, just to be carried off in a frenzied stupor.
I hadn’t seen Tough Junkie perform in a minute, so I was more than stoked to see him play; and lucky for him, I was there. If my memory serves me correctly, I was able to perform an interpretive break dance to his set, wooing old T.J., along with the audience. I have to say that I may have stolen the show, but Tough Junkie was good too. After the set, I went to the restroom in search of more “buff ice,” but instead found Fred Durst and Big Dunn having a rap battle, just like in the music videos. I think Durst was the victor, but my memory on the evening is a little hazy, so it could have been either one. It was a good thing that with every pulse, my body was pumping taurine, guarana, caffeine, and alcohol, because the night was fading and Japanther had yet to play.
The first time I saw Japnather play, I was in Bloomington, Indiana for the 2006, Plan-it-X Fest. I remember this night more clearly than the T.S.I. show. I had never heard of them before, but was not disappointed in their set, as their songs were infectiously poppy. Then I caught them at a house show last year in St. Augustine; the walls were lined with bobbing bodies, sweating profusely, which seems to be protocol at a Japanther show. Earlier this year, while in Brooklyn, I attempted to catch Japanther in their hometown at a warehouse space, called The Shank. I’m pretty sure they were selling booze under the table there, but that was fine with me. After a week of spending Florida-earned dollars in an economy much stronger than ours, I was happy to buy cheap anything. Although Japanther never showed up, for some reason I never found out, I did get to catch Brooklyn based hip-hop group, Ninjasonik, perform an entire set, free styling over Japanther songs. It was definitely a worthy consolation. This time, however… Well, let’s see if I can dig into the deepest pits of my black out. I think they covered some songs by The Cure; I do remember some crowd surfing and Lil’ Willy got hit in the nuts; more sweaty, beer slip-and-sliding occurred; and I don’t remember the ride home. How is that for a review?
Recollection is a fickle function of the mind. It can be the worst liar or the truth you never wanted to know. Although, I don’t remember much of what I’ve heard happened, the fact that I still feel like I got in a fight with Mickey Rourke makes it difficult to deny such allegations. If there are any disputes as to what I’ve claimed as absolute truth in this review, feel free to fill in the blanks via comments. Thank you.

Movember - Changing the Face of Men's Health

0 comments
UPDATE RE Movember Team Info here.



From the Jacksonville Beardsmith Society:
"Movember was started in 2003 in Melbourne, Australia. The guys behind it were really trying to bring the moustache back in style, and in order to justify their Mos (Australian slang for moustache), they used their mustaches to raise money for prostate cancer research. Ultimately with the goal of promoting men’s health.

Here’s how it works. A “Mo Bro” starts Movember (the month formerly known as November) clean shaven and naked-face. He grows a moustache all month long, and as he’s doing this, he’s gathering support from friends and family in the form of donations. This helps us get the subject of men’s health out in the open and gives us the opportunity to talk about the cancers affecting men. The moustache becomes a symbol, much like the pink ribbon is for breast cancer.

At the end of the month we’ll be throwing a party where Mo Bros can dress up to match their Mo, channeling the likes of Tom Selleck, Ghandi and Ron Burgandy, competing for the ultimate accolade: Man of Movember. The party will be held on Saturday, November 28th at Club TSI."

Find out more about this event at JaxBeard.com, Movember.com, or at the Jacksonville Beardsmith Society's Pub Night, tonight at Steamworks 9pm.

Electric Six Interview by Kellie Conboy

0 comments

Interview by: Kellie Conboy

If you spend any amount of time at the Pearl you’re probably familiar with Electric Six’s dance hit “Gay Bar” and the music video that accompanies the song, chock full of shirtless Abe Lincolns in spandex short-shorts and more shameless phallic references than you can count. The Detroit six-piece will be at Jack Rabbits Oct. 27 as part of a tour in support of their sixth full-length album, Kill. Lead vocalist Dick Valentine talks about their latest album, their newest music video (which only lasted on YouTube for 12 hours before it was removed because of explicit nudity), and his unending fascination with Nickelback.

You guys are about to start your tour now, aren’t you?

We’re five shows into it. I’m already exhausted. Day one, fatigue sets in.

I was looking at your schedule, and you guys have two straight months in the U.S. and then less than a week off before you start a month of European dates. Don’t you want to kill each other by the time you’re done with the tour?

We’ve been touring for a while, so we’re good at it. We’re good at not killing each other.

How do you avoid getting burnt out while on tour or experiencing the fatigue you just spoke of?

A lot of ginkgo biloba, a lot of wrestling.

We have a club in Jacksonville that is often mislabeled as a gay club, and they poke fun at themselves by playing “Gay Bar” all the time. Did anything specific inspire that song, or was it just kind of a joke?

You might be familiar with a band called Devo. They have a song called “Girl U Want” from one of their albums in the ‘80s. I was at a crowded bar and it was on the jukebox, and listening to it I thought that the lyrics he was singing were “she’s just a girl, she’s just a girl in a gay bar” and it turned out it was “she’s just a girl, she’s just a girl you want,” but I was mishearing it, so, so far I write a lot of songs of things I think I heard and it turns out I wasn’t hearing the correct lyrics, so I then take the incorrect lyrics and think of my own. So from that moment on I knew I needed to write a song about a girl in a gay bar.

How would you describe your sound to someone who has never heard Electric Six before?

I would say that we are nervous dance music.

How is Kill different from your five previous full-length albums, and why will your fans like it?

It’s not any different. It’s exactly the same, it’s the same album. (laughs) There’s more guitars, we’ve got a real power ballad, “Steal Your Bones,” so if you’re looking for inspiration, to feel better about yourself, you can listen to “Steal Your Bones” off the album Kill. Our fans are gonna like it because we’re giving them exactly what they’ve come to expect, the high quality that they’ve come to expect.

I saw the video for the first single from Kill, for the song “Body Shot,” and I’m glad I wasn’t at work when I decided to look that up. Was there any particular inspiration behind that video?

Well, I just think it’s mostly based on the lyrics. The song is vaguely about a director of porn, or at least of explicit images, and it’s the idea that this character I play in that video is kind of a jerk, and he treats women like a piece of meat, and then the tables get turned and he becomes part of the meat show. And then at the end voodoo breaks out, and the joke’s on him.

I read that Kill was originally rumored to be titled Sign of the Beefcarver. Was there ever any truth to this rumor, and where did it originate?

That’s completely true. Sign of the Beefcarver is a restaurant in Detroit, and it’s got a huge sign that you can see from the road, and it’s kind of a Detroit landmark. And we thought it would be a good idea to name [the album] Sign of the Beefcarver. But I got cold feet about it because I went online and saw that they had a history of litigation, and even though we’re not naming a restaurant Sign of the Beefcarver and it’s a non-competitive use of it, I just didn’t even want to deal with the headache or stressing out about the fact that maybe one day they just might file some sort of lawsuit, because I’ve already had a couple people coming after me for things and it’s not easy. It was easier just to go with a word like “kill” because everybody kills and everybody’s going to be killed and you can tie that one up in court for a long time.

Electric Six comes off as a band that knows how to have fun and poke fun at themselves. Do you think that not taking yourself too seriously is an essential part of being successful and staying sane in today’s music industry?

Well, a lot of people ask the same question and say “if you took yourself more seriously, don’t you think you’d be bigger?” So, my answer to this is always that this isn’t anything premeditated or concocted, it’s just kind of the way we are naturally and it’s the path of least resistance for us so we’re just doing what we did for a long time without getting paid, and now we’re getting paid to do it. It’s just the easiest way to go about being a band for us, I think.

What can fans expect from your tour this fall?

You’re gonna see six middle-aged men playing their instruments, playing a collection of songs from our six albums, trying to connect with the audience, trying to involve the audience, hanging out with people in the audience after the show, perhaps buying them a banana daiquiri.

With 2009 coming to and end, what musical moment or event do you think has been the biggest one of the year?

I don’t know, I guess you’d have to say the passing of Michael Jackson, even though I’ve never met him. I don’t know if he actually ever existed, I never met him, I never touched him, he only existed on television. But that having been said, it was a big televised moment, the passing. I was running in the park when it happened. I saw people getting the text messages as I passed them in the park, people would stop running. I kept running, because, like I said, I never met him so it didn’t really affect me that much. In terms of other great music moments, I think Nickelback went to number one again, so that’s pretty cool for Nickelback. I don’t know how that keeps happening, but good for them.

What is the most outrageous thing that a fan has ever done for you guys?

Recently a girl wrote a screenplay based on our lyrics and got back stage somehow, I don’t know how that happens, they vaporize or something and come through the walls, and then [she] handed me this screenplay and was just like “let’s make this movie.” And I was like “well, I’m going on tour for three months, I don’t have time.” And then she was just like “you’re not hearing me, I wrote this and I wanted to do this, so when can you start filming?” It’s really weird to see people that crazy.

What are your thoughts on the current state of the music industry, and do you think that the condition it’s in now is helping bands or hindering them?

I guess I could go on for a while. The one thing I always say is that it’s a level playing field, all bands are affected by the same technology in the same way, so there’s nothing really to bitch or moan about. America, at least in my lifetime, has always been interesting and cool anyways because of the situation where Nickelback is the only rock band you hear on the radio, whoever decided that Nickelback gets to be that. So that leaves a big vacuum for people who want to seek out more interesting types of music, and so that allows bands to be more independent and kind of do a DIY sort of thing because there’s always an audience for music that isn’t Nickelback. But just because the record industry doesn’t know that doesn’t mean that musicians can’t find ways to market themselves and be more do-it-yourself and I think that’s kind of cool, especially about America.

Whack, Son! What's happening?

5 comments
So, where might a lonely, reclusive north, east Floridian find a place to unleash an epidemic of boredom and negativity? How abouts' the ole’ internet? Fuck, blogs are so cool, because, shit, I can break balls for hours without even coming face to face with those responsible for the content I base my week on reputing. And, holy hell, there has been a barrage of events to hate, flooding this up-and-coming city on the east coast. But wait, what if this train, which my ego so relies on, runs out of unleaded cool? Will my fresh, comment-driven bridge to the actual, social world collapse? What if I were to succumb to embracing the lost practice of personal interaction? Gosh, I might have to take some speech classes to catch up on my social skills. But that might not go towards my degree. Damn, maybe I should talk to my folks to see if they can advise me on a plan-of-action, regarding my dilemma. But Fruit Cove is a long drive. God, I hate bicycles and typing all this anti-anti, pseudo-hip rhetoric really does make my fingers ache. How did Mark Twain ever make such affectively relevant gestures? I wish I could fish a good video from Youtube to illustrate this point; unfortunately, my parents stopped paying for my Comcast. Pricks! What was I trying to say? Oh yeah, Jacksonville “happenings” are doing just that this weekend, yet there aren’t enough negative words in my college dictionary to describe them, so I may have to break it down in a different tone. Uhhhhhhhhhh….
So, this weekend, Saturday to be exact, is this months Infintesmal BBQ, taking place at the newest spot to catch a show. It may seem like a drive from the usual low-lit, recreations of British taverns, but it serves the same purpose, but without the free peanuts. The Devil’s Playground: not the book, movie, song, blog site, or album you’ve never listened to, but the venue will act as the host of Infintesmal Record’s “Better Jacksonville Plan” compilation release party. If you haven’t been privy to the Jacksonville music scene in the past year, then you may find something new; otherwise, this event may just act as a party for everyone who’s put some hard work into, or maybe just been a supporter of what’s been going on recently.
The Devil’s Playground, located at 1850 Wambolt St., unit 6, will be the curator for a slew of bands performing to represent the compilation, as mentioned earlier. In the future, it will play the role of a multi-functioning art space, meant to hold more shows, art galleries, and may act as just a general party spot; the aspect of this warehouse of fun that sets it apart from any house, loft, or bar that compiles such an onslaught of activity is its location: the industrious area where enthusiasts will find The Devil’s Playground provides a location secluded enough to ward off cops, but convenient enough as to draw a crowd. So, check it out on Saturday, October 24.
Fuck! Just as David Banner can’t contain his massively green, anger-boner, my generous tone can’t last forever. This shit is whack, son. I guess it’s back to blogging about everything I hate; or maybe I’ll just raid my mom’s fridge.

Downtown Visions Open House 9/17/09

0 comments
I was debating whether or not I wanted to post these for a couple reasons. One, they were taken from my camera phone and two, I was seeing if we were going to actually get the space we wanted.

First off, this has been something in the works for a good three months. Me and about ten others have been looking for a place or an opportunity to move into a space and work on future projects. I want to say Jim Draper might have something to do with getting this rolling. One day he came to us saying that Downtown Vision was working on getting business owners to offer unused/ unlivable space downtown for artists to come and work downtown.


Click for more photos.

I am happy to announce last week after numerous e-mails and phone calls about seven people and myself are moving into one of these spaces. I also want to say the landlord and Downtown Vision have been ever so helpful in helping us make this happen. We are having our first art show during November's Art Walk. Please stop by to check it out and support us moving downtown. Our first show is an open call so anyone who wants to put something in the show is welcome. Also, if I'm not mistaken, there are more spaces available. Contact Downtown Vision for more info and become our neighbors.

On The Road - Tuesday's 10/13 Ybor City Show Review: Neon Indian
by Joel Cook

Hmmm... Another show review. Don't worry, I'm not going to tell you how many people paid at the door, or what I was wearing, or how the weather was. You can read that shit elsewhere. Here's the deal. The Soft Rock Renegades have made Tuesday night's "All Good" at Crowbar in Ybor City a staple in hipster ethics. Throw in an early show headlined by nerd-rockers Neon Indian, and you've got a skinny jean explosion of happy kiddies. And that's exactly what happened on October 13th at Crowbar. Neon Indian 001 by you.


The fragrance of patchouli oil and b.o. paraded the dark shadows of Crowbar as we anxiously waited for BC of Red Tide to get on stage. BC performed to promote his new release Time Capsule. You gotta check it out. We've been stoked to see BC perform, and he killed as per usual. Always a passionate performer and complex lyricist, BC packed the room with his lyrical gymnastics and vibrate energy. Again, you gotta check his solo debut.

Neon Indian 013 by you.

Sunbears! • Photo by: Brian Mahar


By this point in the night Neon Indian's tour manager was hitting the sauce pretty good, and we may have been aiding him in this act while we awaited Sunbears! performance. We'll get back to that later. Anyway, if you're a fan of REAX then you're aware of what big fans we are of Jacksonville's Sunbears! They always tear the house down and cover it with confetti. They've added a few new songs to their set, added some new video, and Jonathan put on his big boy pants and strapped on a guitar. The new guitar driven songs added a little balls to their set accompanied by devil horns and blood. They played the staples, we all sang along, and then they were gone. Sunbears! just finished recording some new songs for a split they are doing with Eric Collins of the Dark Romantics. Not sure when it's going to be released on New Granada, but the boys are excited about it so you should be too. Now where is that pesky tour manager?

Neon Indian 042 by you.

All the hype and promotion came to a head as Neon Indian took over. It's been awhile since I've seen a band get so much buzz, and it seems for good reason. The kids love their disco-synth-skinny rockers these days. The weirdly slow grind of hipster dancing swayed en mass as they performed "Deadbeat Summer" off their album Psychic Chasm. It's strange how this band can impale you with sadness while still making you dance. It's like watching a kids' cartoon while high and crying. This was day three of Neon Indian's national tour, and I'm not sure the tour manager is going to make it. Last I saw him he was sprawled out on the floor of the men's bathroom covered in something, beckoning for his band. He's fine, we've talked to the band since. I guess we will see how he does this Saturday at TSI in Jacksonville. Show info for Saturday is below, and we hope to see you out. You can actually download the album here if you wanna check out the album before you head to TSI on Saturday night.

STREET INTERVIEW: Netti

0 comments
Mr. Netti is a versatile dude who's a good time to be around. He knows what's good and is down to share it.

Deserts, Mountains, or the Tropics?
Netti: The tropics, because it sounds like there'd be more drinks there. Movies make the desert seem like it’s a horrible place to go.

Favorite import beer?
Netti: Well I love some Guinness of course and Newcastle is pretty close. I try not to discriminate when it comes to beer. My all time favorite seasonal is Shipyard's Pumpkinhead, it's like a slice of pumpkin pie but you don't have to chew!

Salt and Pepper are two timeless table seasonings, what should be a permanent third?
Netti: Bosari. Local home town favorite. You're missing out, really...

Have you ever contemplated a invention of your own?
Netti: I have so many inventions but how do you even build them? I have no idea... I'm not a scientist..

Is there any word you dislike simply because of the way it sounds in pronunciation?
Netti: Yes.

You're building your innovative house, what materiel makes up most of the building?
Netti: Spider silk... Although I would be mad if spiders took over the house in the end... how ironic would that be?
David: ha ha ha...

Do you own any instruments?
Netti: If I could clone myself I could play every instrument in a band.

If not at home, what's a secondary place other than work would you be relaxing?
Netti: Other than work? Who goes to work to relax? If it was relaxing I'd want that job! The beach is probably the most relaxing place I know. Can I work at the beach?

"Broken Places" Project

2 comments

Photo from www.metrojacksonville.com

David here... I am heading a photography and art project that challenges several photographers to search out and photograph Jacksonville's abandoned, lost, rare, eerie, broken, or drab places and things. Each can add their own touch and post processing Styles.

This project is about discovery. When looking for the unknown nooks we will be stumbling upon lots of history and some of the weirdest anomalies in Jacksonville.

The photos will be on our flickr and there are still talks about making a premium blend of the end results in a art show gallery by Halloween.

Lee Wiscovitch, Kat Peraino, Jamie Armstrong, Zachariah De Camp, Mandi Outlaw and Myself are the current photographers. I would not mind more people!
Email me at jaxscenedavid@gmail.com or call (904) 469-8636, if you're interested in joining or throwing in ideas.
We are meeting again tomorrow to discuss places.

Call JAXSCENE - Leave your voice

0 comments
(904) 469-8636I'm always looking for new ways for the community to be able to interact with this blog. I was invited to join Google Voice and decided to dedicated it to a JaxScene call-in number. It will be another way for anyone to call and leave info on future events and things to do so we can post links. Also anyone can leave feedback on events currently going on or events they have been to. This feedback from others can tell us what to expect. All feedback will be pre-screen for unnecessary or unrelated calls because they will be posted in a Daily segment called "Voice Mail Reviews" in their own words! I strongly encourage positive reviews if not general info. I will try to post some reviews as soon as I get them in the actual "Things to do" for that day.

I snapped a little late on, but it really doesn't do justice to how great the show was.
But have a look.
