Two former 35 Denton acts have been re-filtered back to town for September 1's Hot Wet Mess: Big Freedia and Reggie Watts. In you're familiar, you'll probably agree these are good picks for an end-of-summer pool party. If you're unfamiliar, just check out Freedia's late-night TV debut on Jimmy Kimmel earlier this year and be in awe or her presence. Or just the fact that she's performed on prime time television at all. Reggie Watts, well, he's really talented with his mouth.
More artists will be announced in coming weeks. You can buy tickets here.
