I’m sure most of you are familiar with Denton legend Paul Slavens (remember Ten Hands? Yeah, that’s him). Well, every week he gathers some friends for a crazy-fun FREE show. It’s a good way to kick off your week and a good excuse to tear yourself away from your Netflix queue.

The final days of Hailey’s are upon us and with only two ’90s Nights left, things are heating up. DJ Questionmark is celebrating his birthday this Tuesday with insane drink specials — the best of which is only during the first hour, so don’t be late! Cover is $5.

Hey thrashers, cure the hump day blues with serious tunes. It’s gonna be a night of electrorock and crazy psychedelic, so if that’s your bag you won’t want to miss it. Cover to get in is only a dollar, so you don’t have a reason to.

Need an excuse to get out of the house on Christmas? Just like every year, Rubber Gloves is hosting their ritual potluck.
