Gary Wilson + THIN SKIN + Flesh Narc

This show is 21+

Cult legend of the outsider, DIY, and irresistable abstract-pop Gary Wilson (Cleopatra Records / Stones Throw) finds himself wandered all the way to Dallas, in search of The Lost Head, for a genuinely WEIRD Saturday night. Holiday greetings from a one-night alternate dimension of chaotic psychedelic gameshow groove and avant jazz-funk pop tune favorites brought to you by Wilson himself alongside the Blind Dates of TX. The chaos starts at 10 with Flesh Narc zolo punk hazard of electronics, and the cleverly hyper-smear-damaged art of Thin Skin. The finest meltdown DFW has to offer.

In 1977 Gary Wilson famously released a uniquely bizarre and personal album titled You Think You Really Know Me..., full of electro-funk, proto-new wave, noise collage, and avant-garde jazz. Despite the fact that the album's fans included Beck, Questlove from The Roots, Simpsons creator Matt Groening, and Stones Throws' Peanut Butter Wolf, widespread fame and notoriety eluded Gary Wilson until the 2002 re-release of his debut album. Soon after media outlets like Pitchfork, The Village Voice, and The New York Times were talking about the lecherous outsider artist, remarkable as much for his idiosyncrasies and DIY aesthetic as his edgy and creative music.
More than the perverted musings of a peeping tom, Gary's music is an honest reflection of ourselves…at least of that part of ourselves that loved our childhood pets more than we loved our parents, that worried if we'd ever make it to second base, or that really knows how often we floss. Equal parts Prince and Pee Wee Herman…Joe Jackson and Charlie Brown, Gary's songs celebrate our inner ickiness, silliness and grooviness, the romance and randiness of born-losers from Endicott or Anywhere. Rather than alienating us with their creepiness, his lyrics and melodies ultimately make us feel more comfortable being who we are....more comfortable being human.
