35 Denton – For Those of Us Who Are Too Cool for SXSW
Solange (did she drop the last name for reason?) Knowles is headlining 35 Denton, a possibly cooler, definitely smaller and more alternative, companion festival toSXSW. This medusa haired heartthrob has been touring the country in support of her EP True (which I’ve also been supporting via Iphone listening). She’ll be joined by Akron/Family, Sleep, Thurston Moore’s Chelsea Light Moving, and nearly a hundred other talented musicians.
35 Denton is an annual 4-day festival held in…you guess it…Denton, Texas. The festival begin in 2005, in Austin, and for four years it took place during SXSW. After its move to Denton, the festival expanded without losing its emphasis on great smaller acts, Denton locals, and utilization of community space. Now, it’s a nationally recognized event, which boasts hundreds of fantastic performers and draws thousands of fans.
