Anybody remember de Schmog? Sure, you do; you can't lie to us. Well, ex-de Schmog frontman and all-round nice guy Kilian Sweeney (who happens to possess one of the coolest names ever, by the by) will be back in town next week from the windy wilderness of Chi-town.
On Thurs., April 12th, he'll be playing a non-de Schmog de Schmog show with the other de Schmog guys -- we're told that without Diane Koistinen, it really isn't a de Schmog show -- performing as the Redo Makeshift Honorary Band, which may or may not also include Linus Pauling Quartet's Ramon Medina, The Defenestration Unit's Mike Switzer, Joe from the Mathletes, & Chris Bakos. Guess you'll have to make it up to Rudyard's (seriously, where the hell else would they be playing?) to see.
They'll be sharing the bill, by the way, with The Mathletes and awesome-awesome countrified alt-slackers Bright Men of Learning (which happens to include ex-de Schmogger Jonathan Sage on bass; ah, what a tangled web...). It's gonna be a damn good show, honest.
Beyond the musical stuff, though, Kilian's also got some art goin' on. More specifically, while he's in town he'll be putting on an art exhibition he's calling The Cardboard Art Show, which is a bunch of cardboard-only pieces created by artists from all over the place. People whose art will be shown include Space City Rock's own sometime Austin correspondent Justin Crane, Bobbindoctrin impresario Joel Orr, cool lady Rosa Guerrero, the aforementioned Mike Switzer, and ex-Project Grimm/Mike Gunn guy John Cramer.
The whole thing's sponsored by the Chicago-based Birdhouse Museum, runs from April 13th to 20th, and you can check it all out up at Super Happy Fun Land in the Heights. Friday the 13th (ooooh) is opening night. Be prepared for some creative, kooky, cool, possibly really-freakin'-weird stuff.
In other local arty-related news, those wacky folk over at Domy Books has announced that they'll be having a closing party/catalog release for their recent Daniel Johnston exhibition, Where are the ducks when you need them? (which is a question I've asked myself many times, I should note). It'll be on Fri., April 13, from 7-9PM at Domy (1709 Westheimer), and supposedly Johnston will be there in person to join in the festivities. Should be a good time...
