It is officially Friday. You've either got the day off for Good Friday, or you're stuck at work counting down the hours. Either way, take a quick break, grab some caffeine and watch the five videos we have for you below. We've got a new tune from Sarah Jaffe, some Denton drone footage, music for mandated state testing (the best kind of music), Wesley Jensen at the Chairy Orchard, and a video from a locally-made comedy series. Check them all out in the post below!
We were lucky enough to see Sarah Jaffe perform "Did David Feel Like This?" at her Dan's Silverleaf performance shortly after the Thin White Duke passed away earlier this year. The song left us with chills. Here's a video of the song above recorded in Denton (with some of our favorite local musicians) at Redwood Studios. Jaffe asks that you consider making a donation to the American Cancer Society in Bowie's memory. Text "HOPE" to 20222 to make a $5 donation at this website.
Supporting Roles is a local comedic video series that follows the lives of two unlikely friends trying to "make it." The video above features guest star Sarah Jaffe in a role. You can check out more of Supporting Roles (including the rest of their first season) on their Facebook page.
Here's some delicious drone footage of Denton courtesy of Nick Wood Productions.
Lady Hauza (AKA teacher at Denton ISD's McMath Middle School, Kelli Hauser) records a parody video every year in order to encourage students to do well on state mandated tests. This year, she's once again letting out her inner Yankovich with her rendition of Macklemore's popular song "Thriftshop." Lady Hauza's version is entitled, "Test Shop," and features scenes from in and around Denton ISD's Ryan High School. Good luck on those STAAR test, kiddos.
