How to Plan Your Night for Each Genre at 35 Denton, with Maps

This post is meant to serve as one possibility in a blueprint thick with a calculus of possible tangents. It is not intended to create an air of exclusivity or bias, and should in no way be seen as a slight to all of the bands not mentioned. Its intent is to serve as a base guide for where to see many of the different bands playing the late night shows of 35 Denton, and which genre they play within. Note: Headlining shows were not mentioned because there is no real overlap among the different stages. Hope it helps.
