Say Texas, looks like someone’s got a case of the Mondays –– maybe you could use a little SLEEP?
35 Denton is pleased to include the legendary gods of stoner rock, Sleep, in our first announcement for next year’s festival, taking place March 07-10, 2013. Following their recent Southern Lord reissue of the highly-influential "Dopesmoker," these heavy music pioneers will be making their first appearance in Texas since their 2010 reunion show in Austin.
Joining Sleep on our 2013 roster is psychedelic icon and Texas native Roky Erickson. As a founding member of the 13th Floor Elevators, this space-traveling prodigy has played a seminal role in cultivating outsider music since the late 60s.
Rounding out the first set of artists for March 2013 are Memphis garage heroes and recent Merge Records signees Reigning Sound; Germany-based psych-soul guru King Khan and the Shrines; hometown hero and hip-hop sensation Astronautalis; experimental electro enigmas Black Moth Super Rainbow; and, returning as our first ever 'flashback' artist, the multifaceted MVPs of San Francisco, Thee Oh Sees. Additional confirms include The Soft Moon, Merchandise, Nicky Da B, Brutal Juice, K-Holes, Mac Demarco, OBN III's, Fat Tony, Hunters, Gap Dream, Nu Sensae, Sinkane and Cloudland Canyon.
A very limited amount of ‘$35 for 35’ 4-day wristbands are available now at 35denton.com, as well as a small group of 4-day FAST TRACK passes, which allow preferred line access to venue shows among other perks.
