It’s back! Twilight Tunes kicks off with High School Ceasar on the downtown Denton courthouse lawn. Grab a cooler, some lawn chairs, and wind down with family and friends to some rockabilly tunes before taking on the rest of the evening. This week's event is sponsored by Agua Dulce and Chestnut Tree.
Get your groove on to the debut sounds of J. Allert, a 6 piece band that will have you on your feet, just try not to spill your beer. Joined by the funky tunes of Puddin Taine and the always lovely Megan Storie! Plus it’s a free show, so you can roll into Friday with some pep in your step with some money still in your pockets for the rest of the weekends' festivities.
You can check out this lineup with a slice and schlitz in hand while rocking out in the beloved J&J’s basement, $5 goes to support the acts. Dinner and show? Sounds like a great way to spend a Thursday night.
