Volume: Review – 35 Conferette Day Three – Denton, TX – 03/12/11

Traffic to Denton has gotten worse every day of this festival. Every day has gotten a little later and later. It’s really been the getting out of Fort Worth part of it all, to be honest. I don’t know what your deal is, 35 North, but cut it out. Seriously. There’s no reason to be this stubborn during non-rush hour times. I hope you heed my idle warning.

I finally arrived yesterday to catch a couple of songs from G-Side before preparing for Reggie Watts humorous, inventive set. He turned everyone watching him onto this new act, called “The Beatles” and asked everyone to watch for them, they will be big. So he says.

Not going to lie, fatigue set in a little bit today, and I didn’t get to as many shows as I had wanted. I was also pacing myself to be sure not to miss my 1:00 AM act at Andy’s.  Saw Generationals, White Mountain, Maleveller, who incidentally were so loud you could plainly hear them on the Square from Sweetwater, I think I saw a couple of hipster beards melt playing hacky sack on the lawn.

This brought me to about the time to head to Andy’s for one of the acts I was most looking forward to over the weekend: England’s Esben and the Witch. The enthusiastic crowd at Andy’s was treated to 35 minutes of experimental indie goth bathed in nothing but blue light and intensity. It was everything I had hoped it would be, and pray this won’t be the only time they grace N. TX with their presence.

I  slept like a satisfied rock last night. Or really this morning. Stupid daylight savings time.

So hello Day Four, let’s close this thing out with style today.
