Some weeks we are unsure if events exist in Denton that are not music related; this is one of those weeks. We are damn fine with that, too. This is Denton after all, and by God there is great music here. What shows are you going to this weekend?

1st Annual Stout & Shout | Bearded Monk | 6 p.m. - 12 a.m.
You’re all about helping promote and support local businesses whilst giving back to the community at the same time, right?

Come out, have a beer, and buy some stuff!
Danny Diamonds Album Release | Rubber Gloves Rehearsal Studios | 9 p.m.
Abacaba & The Speedlights will be joining Danny Diamonds at his album release show this Saturday. Diamonds’ second studio album is a release of b-sides, or as he says “the more upbeat second half to the Danny Diamonds session.”
Sarah Jaffe, Ronnie Heart | Dan’s Silverleaf | 9 p.m.
Sarah Jaffe is on a two-day residency at Dan’s Silverleaf, which is hardly enough time in our opinion. If the tickets haven’t sold out already, I’d be sure to get mine now. Be sure to put your dancing shoes on, as Ronnie Heart will have it no other way.
Sunday, January 24th
Sarah Jaffe, Doug Burr | Dan’s Silverleaf | 6 p.m.
If you didn’t catch her on Saturday night with Ronnie Heart you can certainly try on Sunday, this time accompanied by Doug Burr who released his latest album, Pale White Dove, last April.
