Happy International Women’s Day, friends! Less than a week away from festival time! Here to influence your Sunday morning tunes is our Director of Hospitality and general badass woman, Mindy Arendt with her eclectic playlist. Fix Up, Look Sharp – Dizzee Rascal You can’t help but bounce to this catchy London rapper. This is one of those songs that comes on and roll the windows down (no matter the weather) and turn it up as loud as I can. Yes, car dancing happens. Regulate – Warren G, Nate Dogg This song has stuck with me since I was a kid, being […]
Words by Morgan Gentry || Images by James Coreas Denton-based punk powerhouse Unmarked Graves had their sophomore album release show for “Dirty Mind” on February 11, 2015 and boy.. was it rowdy. While the acts before them were more along the indie rock spectrum, Unmarked Graves gave so much energy and angst that I’m not even sure I was ready for the hardcore, in-your-face experience. As the seven members took to the stage, it was clear they weren’t your average punk rock band. Singers Richard Haskins and Alexandra Tayra delve right into the raw energythat they’re known for. From yelling at the […]
Interview by Anthony Najera Local artist Katie Reese has a multifaceted talent that scopes beyond her amazing eye for video work. This year she worked on our second announcement video, linked below. This isn’t her first rodeo, folks. Reese has been a volunteer for the festival in the past and talks to local videographer and staff writer Anthony Najera about her editing skills, involvement in music, and much more!

In two weeks from now we will all be stumbling back in to work from our lunch breaks, thankful for the sweet sounds of 35 Denton ringing in our ears. Until then enjoy this stellar (dare I say, interstellar?) mixtape today from some of our favorite North Texas musicians. Def Rain – Fear The engaging sounds of Def Rain have been called one of the best North Texas experimental and noise acts, and this video is nothing short of an aesthetically and resonantly beautiful piece of work. STARPARTY – Something About Us (Daft Punk Cover) Because, who doesn’t love other musicians playing […]
We are officially less than two weeks way from crazy festival fun! Kicking off this weeks Sounds of 35 playlist is our Director of Volunteers, Dallas Guill. Us v Them – LCD Soundsystem Anyone that’s ever met me as had to listen to me talk about LCD Soundsystem at some point. I keep their entire catalog in my car’s CD player at all times (luckily it holds six at once.) All three times I ever saw them live, they opened with this song. One by one, the members would come on stage and start playing their parts until James Murphy steps out and starts singing. […]

While we can’t say what’s in the works, we highly suggest that you pay close attention to what our friends over at We Denton Do It are up to this week!
Words by Danielle Longueville || Images by Thorpe Griner Oh Danny Boy, the Abbey Inn is calling! There are few words within the English language capable of encompassing just how decadently satisfying downtown Denton’s favorite pub can be. As you enter through a series of hearty-oak doors, it feels as though you are stepping into a realm within the 19th Century, complete with traditional church pews for seating and high, echoey ceilings. We suggest a round of Scotch eggs and a pint of Boddingtons Bitter for an experience one will surely remember. The Abbey Inn isn’t just a glimpse into the […]
Here’s a little Mixtape for those of you with a case of the Mondays.
