It’s another eclectic week. At least it's nice outside, though (for now). We’re secretly hoping the weather stays like this until next December. This weekend, you'll find us flipping through graphic novels on a blanket on the courthouse lawn - maybe with a bottle (or two) of wine. Make sure to check out all that Denton's got going on and don't forget to tag those pictures with #WDDI to be included in Monday’s What We Did post.

Snarky Puppy | Hailey’s | 8PM | $20-$75
Grammy Winners, hometown heroes and toasts of the town, Snarky Puppy are making a triumphant return to town/Hailey’s. We're thinking they deserve the key to the city now. Is there a key to the city? Does it open those secret underground tunnels we've heard so much about?
Shipwrecked! | Redbud Theater Complex | 8PM | $10
Real Ale Brewing Company Tap Takeover | East Side Social Club | 7PM
Meet the brewer from Real Ale, get a pint and answer some trivia. All seven varieties of Real Ale will be present, on tap and delicious.

Violent Squid / Nervous Curtains / Dome Dwellers | Rubbergloves | 9PM | $5
Violent Squid was once a mainstay of the North Texas noise rock scene, but they've since splintered around and we sadly see them play less now. They'll have their new album available at this show. We're looking forward to this one.
Third Fridays At Innovation Greenhouse | Innovation Greenhouse Acoustic Gardens | 4PM-8PM
Bashe, Blessin’, food trucks and environmental innovation. Not bad for a Friday. Lean Machine will be there for sure.

Mini A-Kon 7 | Denton Civic Center | 10am - 5PM
With so many Dentonites working at FUNimation this cosplay anime festival seems like a natural thing. This event has been held at the Denton Public Library's North Branch for past years, but in recent years, it's grown too big for that space. We're glad we’ve got the Civic Center for these types of large events, though. Expect food trucks, galore (including Easy Slider, Cupcakin' and Nammi), photobooths and lots of awesome handmade costumes for your people watchin' good times.
Boxcar Bandits / Hares On The Mountain / A.M. Ramblers | Dan’s Silverleaf | 9PM | $5
Sunday, February 23
Sarah Jaffe / Bethan | Dan’s Silverleaf | 5PM | $15
Cause duh. We don't think this has sold out yet. Is Jaffe still in her "electric phase?"

Paul Slavens & Friends | Dan’s Silverleaf | 10PM | FREE
Always a good time.
