Pivotal Denton post-rock band band, Lift to Experience, is re-releasing their acclaimed album, Texas Jerusalem Crossroads, in the form of a newly remastered vinyl. The release coincides with the album's 15 year anniversary and is being released by Mute Records. You can check out a clip from the remastered album here. The release comes after the band reunited to play a few gigs (including one in Denton) earlier this year.
Thursday night, LSA celebrated their completed rooftop addition that includes six commissioned murals by local artists. The murals all represent a different style and message, but all flow perfectly together. The murals were commissioned by Sparky and the LSA team in order to expose new artists to the general public and support the work of local artists and the Greater Denton Arts Council. The next time you’re in the mood for rooftop views and truffle fries, make sure to stop by and check out the individual works which are all uniquely beautiful in their own right.
If you're not sick and tired of talking about the election results, you should dive deep into all of Denton County's results that you can find here.
Whimsy Finds is a new home decor, women’s clothing, and gifts store located on Hickory across from the Campus Theater. They’re into things like wine-a-ritas and hosting custom chalk paint workshops.
Zig Zag Stripe is another new store in Downtown Denton in the old Barefoot space on Elm. They specialize in women’s clothing and even have their own designs manufactured for their store instead of going to market to find things from designers.
Shop the Barn has been reincarnated and is once again in a store in Denton. The store that was once on Oak St. in the Vintage Bleu space is now in the old La Di Da location on Locust. They specialize in vintage finds and furniture and used to be in the Vintage Bleu space.
Speaking of Shoe La La, the shoe store on the square, is now back to being inside of La Di Da on Locust St.
