WHAT WE DID: OCTOBER 7TH

Oh man, what a weekend. We hope your weekend was at least half as awesome as ours was. Canned, that festival we've been jabbering on about for months now, finally happened, and it was awesome. We also had our first cold-snap of the season and got totally drenched during said festival, but it still managed to be pretty danged awesome. In addition to that, October's First Friday was great and there were quite a few other things going on that WDDI readers visited and documented, too. Oh, if you read these Monday morning What We Did posts exclusively for pics of food that we ate, you're going to be disappointed this week. Not nearly as many food photos today. Check back next week when we promise to get fat again, y'all. Thanks for tagging your photos with #WDDI and have a great week!

Thursday evening, UNT on the Square had some live jazz in house. Reader, Shaina Shaeff, was there to capture this dude pounding some keys.

We still need to make it out to Denton's Improv Comedy class put on by Dallas Comedy House. This photo from Sarah Adams shows last week's level 1 class.

We visited a Farrier's Competition over at the North Texas Fairgrounds and saw a bunch of forges and hammers.

One of our North Texas faves, Nervous Curtains, played Hailey's on Friday. Aubrey Salsman - who coincidentally has one of the best Instagram handles we've ever seen - was there to capture this light-filled shot.

We made sure to catch the new show up at the UNT on the Square gallery - it's one of our favorite to date.

EDITOR'S NOTE: Reader beware, from here on out, it's a bunch of awesome Canned-related pics. 

We sampled a few beers here and there. Armadillo Ales was there reppin' Denton.

Canned was wind-powered, y'all. Here's a photo of DME getting us all hooked up to that sweet, sweet breeze.

This is about how many gates it takes to make one Canned Festival.

The #WDDI mascot, Glen Ferret, was on hand encouraging people to come out to the show and enjoy some live music and beer.  You can check his video here

Hares on the Mountain was up next. While they pretty much are represented in What We Did every single week, we don't ever really tire of them. They're always a joy to behold and photo snags like this one make them fun in still form, too! Seriously, limberness like this takes some practice.

Alana Presley and Kent Boring from Keep Denton Beautiful and Denton Recycles were straight thuggin' at the show.

Local band, Pageantry, who seem to getting some deserved attention lately, attempted to scare away any possible Canned fest-goers before the show with this frightening gram. Also, remember the time we included Pageantry in our first 3 songs column last winter?

DIME Handmade spared a couple of their awesome ladies to Canned. They sold some locally-made goods and smiled a lot.

Eventually, though, Denton's "rainy festival curse" hexed upon us Eli Gemini before he moved away a few years ago reared it's ugly head. Patrons - us included -  took shelter from the rain wherever they could. By the way, trees don't make great rain cover, FYI.

A short while later, the sky cleared back up. Actually, it got super nice outside and gave us our first excuse to throw on a hoodie this fall season. We liked this shot of the Snosirrom Stik-Nroc sign and the post-rain sunset.

Helio Sequence kept the party going as the festival started to dry up.
