As the sun started to set last night, the rain set in on Denton, TX. Things looked sour for the start of the 2010 NX35 Music Conferette. But quicker than you can say RTB2, the rain subsided, and the sun came back just long enough to show the little Denton Square and all of us fellow musicians hangin' on the patio over at Dan's Silverleaf the beautiful and complete rainbow it had made just for us. We all knew it was a sign of the beauty to follow this weekend.
For me, last night marked the beginning of a long, drunken, musical, magical weekend... And the hangover to support it. This opening night was not to be downsized, even for a Thursday evening. People walking all around you, laughter, lights and music from every corner could be seen and heard bouncing off of every historic brick of every rustic building of this little square. And though I could not attend every performance of the night, here are just a couple of the highlights of the opening night of NX35 2010. I assure you there will be more to follow! But don't just rely on the pictures. Come out and experience it for yourself. It will not disappoint.
