Denton deals a pair of queens

The NX35 Music Conferette gets underway for a four-day music conference in little ol’ Denton. Little D’s answer to SXSW, NX35 gets way impressive with some pretty familiar names on the roster. The fest begins with legendary soul and gospel singer Mavis Staples and continues with outrageous sissy bouncer Big Freedia, pictured, on Saturday.

Visit here for Sunday’s schedule.

DEETS: NX35 event grounds, 110 W. Hickory St., Denton. Through March 13.
