update, 9/3/09

D hive,

How is each of you? Full of being yourself we take it?

If that self so happens to like art, music and pizza, then we know a perfect place for you to come and enjoy it all.

Tonight, Thursday, September 3, come enjoy trivia at 6:30pm. Free, prizes. Then Zyzzyx Road, a local blues rock band, at 9pm. $5

Friday night is tuned to an indie-alternative rock and roll spirit:

7pm we'll have Trees And People. Hard to describe the music, but it usually involves toy instruments. Fun, free-spirited, with a touch of heartbreak.

8pm. We have Firebird 4000 Project. Check out the beautiful poster for the night on the myspace. And listen to "Another's Dreams". FB4K is influenced by black rebel motorcycle club, Brian Jonestown, Chris Broach, Blackouts/Living blue/Village, Ian curtis, The Doors, Pixies, Joan Jet, Bowie, Pavement, Nirvana, Braid, Bright Eyes, Born in the Flood.

9:30pm. The return of Lions The Brave. This band impressed us the last time they were in and we're looking forward to checking them out again. They play epic pastoral rock instrumentals. Phil compared them to Godspeed You Black Emperor. Symphonic stoner rock?

Finally, near the witching hour, we have the debut of Zombie Survival Guide. Radiohead strained through some metal. D Note trivia: one of the players in this band is the roommate of our cook Houston. $5

Saturday night we tune into a New Orleans vibe:

7pm Otone Brass Band. Just great original brass band tunes played by an exuberant bunch of fellas and lead by the most charismatic front man on the front range, Aden Harrell. $8.

9pm Dwight Carrier, of the legendary Zydeco Carrier family is gonna give us some good old Zydeco music to lose our blues to. The Colorado Friends of Cajun and Zydeco do a great job of bringing out the bands and the dancers. $10.

Heads up. Nov. 14 we are hosting our first annual Beard And Mustache Showdown at the D Note. There will be grand prizes, great music and more. We are giving you this early warning because, if you are game and able, we want to give you plenty of time to work on your magnificent stash and beard.

Extra Credit: This week we present a poem by Adam DeGraff, a minor poet still alive and living in the middle of America.

My Great Contribution To Society

The thing I am most proud of
in this life is a joke.

Actually two jokes.

I now pass these jokes along
to you, posthumously.

The first joke is applicable any time
you find yourself eating Asian food
with a group of strangers.

This situation arises more than
you might expect.

You can use this joke while ordering.
The waiter usually asks,
"Would you prefer brown or white rice?"

To which you reply,
"Either one is fine, sir. I'm not a ricest!"

This joke will kill two birds with one stone.

Actually, killing birds is too violent a metaphor.
I am hereby changing this tired saying forever.
From now on people shall say instead,
"feed two birds with one grain of rice."

That sounds much nicer.

Anyway, if your guests lack a refined sense of humor
and your first joke doesn't do the trick, don't give up!
Simply wait until the main dish is served and try the second joke,

"Did you hear about the new wok they've invented?
It cooks twice as fast. It's called a run."

The ice will now be broken for good
and everybody will be glad to know you.
