Denton Out-of-Bounds, and yes, Jazz

October 24, 2015

By Kathy Edwards McFarland

A little something from Snarky Puppy to brighten you day –

But first, Out-of-Bounds.

Denton people – great, laid-back, well-educated, caring and falling into the pit of bad-grammar despair … really bad grammar, thanks to laziness, auto-spell correction on smart (?) phones and – nationally televised commercials, such as …

Oh, come on, you did catch it, didn’t you? (Conjugate the verb “depreciate” for a single car … add an “s”.)

And now, Denton music and festivals …

Day of the Dead Festival wraps this evening – but Cirque du Horror has a 10 pm show tonight, Dan’s Silverleaf, 103 Industrial,  a Sunday matinée at 5-6:30 pm – and a final show Halloween 5-6:30 pm. (Bwah-ha-ha.) Spooky stuff, boys and girls. Visit here for tickets and details … http://www.cirqueduhorror.com/

FYI – this weekend offers numerous opportunities to celebrate dance, eat and and imbibe:

  • 7 pm – Audacity Brewhouse celebrates their first year at Harvest House, 331 E. Hickory. Many beers to try from the brew house list, such as Sunset Lager, Repercussion, Bullet Proof, Nemesis, Black Widow, Chai Lager, Oaktopia, Biere de Garde, and Lil’ D #1 Mesquite Chili (oh boy, this is good).

Tasting card of 6 beers for $10. Eric McFadden on stage at 9 pm! Pan Ector Industries on site with mobile screen printing!
