Dirty Thirty

Y'know what we learned this year? The Lot Six: you can't beat 'em, you can only hope to contain 'em. We'd give them shit for not putting out their freakin awesome unreleased album Get Baked on Youth Kulture except that all their members have been off collaborating on all kinds of other projects. This profusion of creativity has got Sixers forward Dave Vicini talking art collective -- which, as any self-respecting Elephant 6 fan or Broken Social Scenester can tell you, is just how-indie-do right now. Consider it officially named: the DIRTY THIRTY ART MOB/KULTURE KREW -- plus the irrepressible DJ Makka, of Write to Eat fame -- took over Thursday night at the Other Side Cafe, where visual artists John Allen and Esteban Hernandez were toasting the opening of their December photo exhibit. (You'd recognize both boys if you've hung out at ZuZu more than once, and John bangs on the drums in Reports). The night's special guests were the Vicini-fronted trio called Beat Awfuls, whose tunes are much like the previous TL6 side project Dave Cave and the Void (heck the Beat Awfuls are even recycling the old Dave Cave webpage). They feature Vicini's gruff, growling vocals over a more stripped, rootsier sound than TL6's ballistic rawk.
