Do you ever think to yourself, "I really wish I could take my kids and throw them into a shark tank?" Well tonight you kinda can as the Superpages Center is hosting the Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival. If you haven't heard of it yet then I doubt you have any reason to think you're going, but if you've been having your pants leg pulled for the last few weeks I advise you to give in, pour a little vodka into that can of Rockstar flavored goodness and let the good times roll with acts such as Norma Jean, Korn, Rob Zombie, Hatebreed & Lamb of God. This is an all day long festival that starts at 2:15 p.m. so get out there and get scared.

If you're used to getting screamed at then maybe you should get down to the Granada Theater to see Monte Montgomery. As a leading voice on the music scene in Austin, guitarist Monte Montgomery slowly gained national recognition for his amazing dexterity, fluid harmonics, percussive dynamics, and melodic sensibility. Montgomery won his fourth consecutive title as best acoustic guitarist at the 2001 Austin Music Awards at the SXSW Festival. Songs written by Montgomery in early 2001 followed suit from his previous releases, 1998's 1st and Repair and 1999's Mirror, in that they all focus on storytelling, a quality he derived from listening to Guy Clark, Townes Van Zandt, and Bob Dylan.

In a night of rock music of course Denton has to be the one that gets the blood flowing. Tonight at the local infamous Andy's Bar come celebrate Subservient Experiment's 2 years of existence with performances by some of our favorite bands, Birds and Batteries, Spooky Folk, and Roy Robertson. If anyone has not had the pleasure of seeing Spooky Folk yet, then it's about time you do. Paired with Birds and Batteries and Roy Robertson this is about as solid as a line up can get in Denton...which is pretty solid. This event also features a rad poster.
