Weekend Update: May 26 - 30, 2016
Wow, we’ve got a whole extra day of drinking this weekend, Denton! What’re you gonna check out in lieu of this holiday? Maybe gorge on chili at The Golden Jesus on Sunday? Perhaps some great art stuff—for those sophisticates among us? Maybe you just wanna kick it on a patio and soak up the sun. Just make sure this isn’t the weekend you decide to Netflix & chill, because there’s way too much to miss. #FOMO
If there’s something you’re doing that we shouldn’t miss out on, hit us up in the comments on Facebook.

Mountain Song, RHU, EC Jacobs & The Green Hour Residency
Andy’s Bar, 8 pm
Wanna know what you’ll be doing this Thursday? This. These local acts will blow your minds with musical awesomeness. First up is EC Jacobs & The Green Hour Residency; no stranger to the Denton stages, filling ears with ethereal sounds that are unmatched to their peers. Next is RHU, a composer, and multi-instrumentalist. That translates to: symphonic genius. Headlining is Mountain Song, a local folk outfit that could easily play with the big radio boys.

Donella Drive, Dome Dwellers, Children of Indigo, Class Action, Biscuit Head

Bukkake Moms LAST SHOW, Filth, Sex Problem, Heavy Baby Sea Slugs, Think Skin, DJ Chris Mosley
Sprockets Bicycle Shop, 9 pm
This is a bunch of bands for only $5. Sprockets is hosting Bukkake Moms very last show (:sad emoji:), and guess what: Minneapolis’ Sex Problem is down to serenade them out. If you’re not familiar with Sex Problem, they’re sort of new wave-hyper-chill-dancey. That makes sense, right? Right.

Abbey Underground, 10 pm
FREE show at Abbey Underground! There’s quite a bit of hype around Hen & the Cocks, who are headlining this awesome lineup. But don’t miss the openers, because they’re gonna rock your face off, too.
