Halloween Costume Don’ts

30 Oct

By Staff.

Every year Halloween hits Denton (and many other college towns) like a ton of bricks. Parties galore go on, and in a town where it feels like most people are already wearing a costume, the competition can be pretty stout to stand out in the costume crowd. Sadly it seems every year 10 people have the same idea, and party’s are flooded with people wearing variances of the same thing. Quite frankly it’s annoying.

So, knowing that we’re throwing a house show, were we’re pretty much begging for people to show up in the craziest things they can think of, we decided to be proactive and make a list of costumes we don’t want to see either because their tired, a cliche, or just plain dumb.

Giveaway: Blindpilot and The Low Anthem at the Granada Theater

28 Oct

Tonight The Granada plays host to two excellent Americana acts with the excellent Low Anthem hitting the stage in support of headliners Blindpilot.

You all know how much those of us on this site love The Low Anthem, we’ve done an interview, mini album review, and pretty much praised them non stop since catching them at NX35 last year, and believe me their live act is something to catch in person.

Portland’s Blindpilot has been riding a wave of praise over their latest album 3 Rounds and a Sound, which has been called the perfect  folk record as done by the Shins. Not exactly sure what that means, but I dig the music.

 

Those of you wanting to catch the bands are in luck, thanks to the fine folks from The Granada we’re giving away a set of tickets to tonight’s show. You just have to email us at giveaways@daybowbow.net, and we will randomly select one winner from the list of emails we get. contest ends at 3.
