Denton’s low-power FM radio station turns two years old this month. The team that keeps the community station running means to celebrate with Denton art and music.
KUZU-FM (92.9) is a tiny but mighty operation, and the crew that keeps the local airwaves dynamic, commercial-free and occasionally weird plans to celebrate with — what else? — a show.
The anniversary party will start at 8 p.m. Saturday, July 20, at Rubber Gloves Rehearsal Studios. Cover is $10.
Music at the party will be by Heavy Pulp, Cure for Paranoia, Strays, Starfruit, Hey Cowboy, the Birds of Night and Isaac Hoskins.
The party will also feature KUZU disc jockeys Nancy Drennan, host of Nancyland, Gillian Murphy and Fabio Possamai of Moonlight Mega Drive, Meg Zeazez of Mechanical Breakdown, Daniel Huffman of Time Captain and Karl Gossot of The Golden Hour.
The party features poetry by Spiderweb Salon, and an art installation by Oh Eye See Projects. Visuals during the evening will be created by James Washington and Julie McKendrick.
The anniversary party couldn’t happen without a pop-up market. Local makers will have merchandise at the part: Andrew Hammond Kendall of AHK, Matthew Sallack of Otter Illustration, Ciara Elizabeth of Enchanted Botanica, and Paige Davidson of Cahoots Handbags.
Milpa Food Truck and Frio’s Gourmet Pops will be onsite, too.
