Welcome to UNT 101, a weekly series to prepare you to hit the ground running for your new life at UNT. We’ve interviewed Eagle Ambassadors (read: UNT aficionados) about everything from the best places to study to the best music venues in town. Let their answers be your guide to joining the Mean Green family.
No matter where you are in Denton, odds are you’re never too far from some live music. Whether you’re listening to a concert, an intimate show or a street performance, there are plenty of places in “lil’ D” to take in some tunes:
With roots based in Denton, this multi-day music and art festivals was named Best Fest by the Dallas Observer Music Awards in 2015 and 2016 before making the move to Dallas last year. Previous lineups have featured performances by the likes of Andrew WK, Erykah Badu, 21 Savage and UNT alumna Norah Jones.
Enjoy the sounds of live music while sitting under the stars. Harvest House has a large outdoor stage that features music from top local, regional and touring bands and DJ’s.
Zera Coffee Co.
Coffee and music are an amazing combination, and you can find them both at Zera Coffee. All profits from Zera go to support a men’s residential program. So you can sit back and enjoy live music, a nice cappuccino and support a good cause.
From the aforementioned LSA Burger Co. to street performers in front of the various shops, to shows at the local bars, there’s never a shortage of live music to be heard on and around the Denton Square.
According to Eagle Ambassador Wil, Target is not only good for grocery shopping. It’s also somewhere you can catch some great tunes and grab a few essentials. Especially if you’re a Taylor Swift fan.
