Here are our picks for shows to hit up this weekend. If you think we missed something, tell us in the comments!
Friday, Feb. 15th:
Trebuchet/ Descender/ Bad Design - Dan’s Silverleaf | 9:00pm | Show 10:00pm | $5
Trebuchet is the working-man band of Denton. They always put in their time and they always do a good job. Definitely looks like a good show to get the slime of Valentine's Day off of your back.
The Iron Claw/ Bubba Hernandez Y Los Super Vatos/ Fab Deuce - Rubber Gloves | 9pm | $9
Fab Deuce is a local group of MCs and DJs that always put on a good show, but the name Bubba Hernandez Y Los Super Vatos has us itching to be at Rubber Gloves to check these guys out based solely on the name.
The Paramedic/ It Lies Within/ Surrounded By Monsters/ Aspire/ I Am Man, I Am Monster/ Citadel/ Fist Meets Face/ My Dear Epidemic/ To Keep You Safe - Hailey’s | 7pm | $10 Over 21 | $15 under 21
All of these bands look “tough” in their band photos. So, there’s that. Also, It Lies Within has one of those awesome metal logos that is completely illegible.
Saturday, Feb. 16th:
Deep Throat/ Bitch Teeth/ Princes of Fucktown/ Eccotone - Rubber Gloves | 9pm | $5 or $7
The Reggie Watts-approved local ridiculousness that is Deep Throat takes the stage this Saturday at Rubber Gloves with a whole crew of other grossly interesting bands. If you wanna sleaze it up after a nice Thin Line doc, this is the place to be.
Denton Babe Bash featuring The Virgin Wolves/ The Red Death/ Sol Tax/ Classy San Diego/ Stormy Durant - Hailey’s 8pm | $5 Over 21 | $7 ages 18 -21
Uh... so apparently Class San Diego is a female-fronted local ska band that we didn’t know existed. Might be worth your $5 just for that alone. Besides that, this is a show featuring a bunch of women-as-frontperson bands.
Sunday, Feb. 17th:
Hares on the Mountain - Dan’s Silvearleaf | 7pm | Free
And you can of course hit up Dan’s early Sunday evening for some always-accountable Americana for free. Do you not do this already?
Oh, and Thin Line, too!
Also, here’s the entire schedule for the rest of Thin Line with our selections bolded. If you have not yet attended a Thin Line show, we highly encourage you to do so! Joshua Butler and crew do a great job of selecting documentaries that are not only interesting, but pertinent and thought-provoking.
