There’s something about being away from Denton that can really make you pine. It’s really hard to know exactly what there is to be missing when you're in the thick of it. Maybe it’s the subtlety that you can spend a lifetime trying to wrap your head around and never quite figure it out. It keeps you on your toes. If it’s not the random construction and street closures then it’s the weather. If the weather and traffic are fine then you’ll realize that there’s a huge percentage of the population that up and leaves every semester. It’s an oddball. But it’s our oddball, and as you can see by the glorious return of the Den10, a list of events happening in one of the greatest, strangest oddball towns on the planet. Get out there and check it out and lets keep it that way.

Wednesday January 8
Whiskey Wednesday w/ Country Nightmares / Starfire On The Mountain | Dan’s Silverleaf | 10PM | FREE
Looks like Grady Don Sandlin and the notorious Justin Collins will be bringing you some 60’s and 70’s Honky Tonk Dance music. Sounds like that’ll go well with a good amount of whiskey. Our vote is Isaac Hoskins will win the dance-off if there is one.
Game Night | Rubbergloves | 10PM | FREE
Bring some board games and play with your friends. Or just sit on your phone playing candy ninja or whatever. Cheap drinks and bad decisions!
Professors Corner Presents “Octavia Butlers Science Fiction” | Denton Public Library South Branch | 7PM
Well this is a gem of an event that we’ve just uncovered. Dr. AnaLouise Keating will be leading a discussion entitled “Octavia Butler’s Science Fiction”. This looks like an ongoing program funded by a grant. We’ll be keeping an eye out for more of these for sure.
Thursday January 9
Crafternoon | SCRAP Denton | 3PM - 6PM
This is pitched as an event where the community can come in to their weekly workshop and work together on crafts. People love crafts and clever names.
UNT Men’s Basketball v. Southern Miss | UNT Super Pit | 7PM | $7 - $12
Y’all like sports right? Well if you don’t, we bet the band is probably killing it down in the SUPER PIT.
Dancing By The Light of The Moon | Center For Visual Arts | 1PM - 5PM
Check Marcellino’s work on display.
Friday January 10
Def Rain / Diamond Age / The Night Game Cult | Dan’s Silverleaf | 10PM | $5
Now here’s a show that should pique the interest of any true Dentonite. A great collection of some of the most unique and talented musicians from the past ten years.
Three Tall Women | Black Box Theatre | 7:30PM | $15
Tickets to this 1994 Pulitzer Prize winning play can be bought at the Campus Theatre box office or by phone (940.382.1915) or by internet (dentoncommunitytheatre.com). This has been described as a “compelling theatre experience” which is starting to make us wonder: why is it spelled “theatre” and not “theater”?
A.Dd+ / Blue, The Misfit / Sam Lao / -topic / Lord Byron / Jaeson Green / AV The Great / Jay Clipp | Granada Theater | 8PM | $15 - $35
Hometown-Hip-Hop-hero AV The Great takes the stage down south at Granada Theater. Check out this weeks feature on AV The Great if you need some reasons why this trip is worth it.
Saturday January 11
Grapevine Craft Brewery Launch Party | OSDH&CP & ESSC | 7PM
Some new releases that wound pretty tasty will be released plus you can score a free glass. Monarch is a Classic American filtered Wheat beer and Lakewood is described as a Hoppy American Rye Pale Ale.
