What is this strange ball of fire in the sky today? It’s so bright. Take advantage of this weird, clear weather and get out there and check out all the great things our city has to offer before we all float away. Looks like Oaktopia is getting underway with a few “Pretopia" events (we always appreciate a good portmanteau) and one of them looks like a bike scavenger hunt. There’s also a bike pub crawl so if you've got a bike your weekend is already made.

Hide / Wiving / Filth / Psychic Killers / Vogue Machine | Rubber Gloves Rehearsal Studios | 9PM | $7
Great lineup at Rubber Gloves from House of Tinnitus featuring Wiving whom we have featured in 3 Songs at least once. While we're at it, did you happen to read the great article the Dallas Observer ran about HOT's Rob Buttrum last week? If not check it out here.
The 4onthefloor / The Infamists | J&J’s Basement | 9PM | FREE
There is nothing wrong with pizza, schlitz, and a few bands at J&J’s basement. Just give a little prayer that the roof doesn't give in while you're there.
Raised Right Men | Harvest House | 8PM
RRM are still the best band in Denton. Sets ‘em up, knocks ‘em down. Honky Harvest House. While we're at it, for those of you that didn't realize our post claiming that Steve Harvey was buying Harvest House was an April Fool's Day prank, now you know.

Movie In The Park | Quakertown Park | 8PM
People love movies and parks and bikes! This week's film will be Breaking Away, which appears to be bike themed since this is another bike-related event.
Pansy Moon / Bethan / Monk Parker | Dan’s Silver Leaf | 9PM | $10
Whoa! Another great show. You already know we love Pansy Moon. We featured them in 3 Songs back in January. We're also excited to see Denton ex-pat, Jessi Hall's, newer project, Bethan. Three great bands plus we hear Jimmy has been in a good mood lately.
