The Best Thing About Denton: Interviews with Vendors, Bands, Policemen and Fans

Stephen Masker
It's no accident that the name 35 Denton finally settled on features its hometown's name so prominently. The organizers of the festival want nothing so much as to champion Denton, and to that end they have created a gathering place for not just musicians, but fans and businesses from around DFW. We talked to a few people awaiting Brutal Juice's manic opening set on Friday about what makes Denton unique.
