Rumors of the demise of Denton's music scene are greatly exaggerated. In fact, it appears that the sudden changes in the landscape may have given it a good shot in the arm. This weekend marks the start of the highly anticipated UNT Football season, as well. All eyes will be on the new coach to see if he can pull off a few wins for the Mean Green.
