Purl Snap Shirts
Music starts at 7 pm with musicians Chuck Voellinger and Chris Veon as Trotline who will be performing an acoustic set. At 7:30 guitarist and singer songwriter Fritz Schwalm takes stage. Fritz is also the leader of the Denton group Uver who you might have heard at Twilight tunes or the studio. Starting at 8:30 is the rock steady Purl Snap Shirts perform. Members Joe Stack and Garrett Phelps describe themselves as musicians who are “guitar playing, lyric singing; born to the wolves, and raised among the various communities of Denton, Texas.” Many of the artists have new work on display as we move into the fall season. Art demonstrations and a fall themed community art painting will be also taking place at the studio. Grab a friend and come join the fun.
E.T. and the Dreamcatchers
Get Ready Denton! It’s time to make your way by A Creative Art STUDIO Friday, August 1st.
