35 Conferette: Day 1

10 03 2011

It is time once again for the eyes of America to focus in on a small town just north of Dallas. That town is Denton, America and the 2011 edition of 35 Conferette (formerly NX35). 35 Conferette is a walkable 4-day music conference programmed in the heart of Denton, Texas’ central business district, and is easily the most lovable music event in town.

If you haven’t done so yet, I’d suggest buying a wristband through Prekindle now, and support all of the local music that will be represented during 35C, not to mention all the big name national acts. Here are my picks for Thursday:

El Cento (Dallas) – 6:30-7
Square Stage
The latest project from Don Cento (Shibboleth) is highly recommended if you’re a fan of The Cars and the Talking Heads. Best of all? This stage is free and open to the public.

The Pains of Being Pure at Heart – 7:15-8:15
Main Stage #2
Super happy indie-pop jams!

The Cush (Dallas) – 10-10:30
Dan’s Silverleaf

Eaton Lake Tonics (Ft. Worth) – 10-10:30
The Labb
ELT makes quick-witted, catchy rock songs. This will be their final performance, but lead singer Tony Ferraro will continue to work on solo projects.

Bravo, Max! (Dallas) – 10:50-11:20
Andy’s Bar
If there is one “can’t miss” local band on day one of 35C, it’s Bravo, Max! I guess you could call them alt-country, but I don’t want to sell them short.

Nicholas Altobelli (Dallas) – 11:40-12:25
Hickory Street Lounge

Glen Farris (Denton) – 12-12:30
Dan’s Silverleaf

Mansions – 11:40-12:25
Rubber Gloves Rehearsal Studio

Slobberbone (Denton) – 1a-2a
The Labb

Cut Chemist – 1a-2a
