Did y'all know UNT has a bonfire the night before their annual homecoming game? We sure as heck didn't. Why didn't anyone tell us about that until now? We will always recommend going out to said bonfire from now on because lets face it, big piles of stuff on fire are flipping awesome. As usual, there’s a ton of things going on in Denton this week. We'll even be at some of them, ourselves. We want you to be able to check them all out and take pictures and hashtag #WDDI. After all, we always highlight our faves in our What We Did post Monday mornings because we love y'all so much. Here's what's going on this week. Make your plans now.

Wednesday, November 6
Audacity / Pink Smoke / War Party / Anger House | Rubbergloves | 9PM | $6
Gloves seems to be having a pretty good run of solid booking lately so definitely check out what they’ve got to offer when you get the chance. Audacity is garage punk from Fullerton, California and Gloves is a pretty good venue for that sort of thing.
Thursday, November 7
Quasi / Blues Control | Dan’s Silverleaf | 9PM | $16
Nineties Portland rockers, Quasi, hit’s Dan’s this Thursday. An ex-husband and wife team that can sometimes get political. Seems like it could be a sketch on Portlandia.
Hunters / The Bugs | Rubbergloves | 9PM | $6
Friday, November 8
VoltRevolt / Forever & Everest / Jambunctious | The Abbey Underground | 9PM | FREE
Meet Your Makers Party | The DIME Store | 6PM
A holiday sneak peak of our favorite local maker shop? Sign us up! Oh, and there’s a We Denton Do It photo-booth, too? Bring the family and get a picture made for your relatives to stick on the refrigerator with a magnet. Just take your kid's art assignment down first.
Jel / Sole | Rubbergloves | 9PM | $10
Robert Gomez / Bethan / Dark Rooms | St. David’s of Wales | 6PM | $5
St. David’s continues their series of excellent local artists in their beautiful cathedral with this well rounded bill featuring the prolific Robert Gomez as headliner. We love this room and this really is a perfect bill to see/hear.

With our 6th win on Halloween, the Mean Green are going in with a hopeful win against UTEP this weekend. Go for the football, stay for the Green Brigade and the Frito Pie. GO MEAN GREEN.
Downtown Denton Holiday Open House | The Square | 5PM
Fifty two shops open up for the downtown square open house leading up to Christmas. You know your mom wants something local so this is your time to jump on it and spend a nice evening perusing the shops looking for the perfect gift.
