Introducing The Hive, 35 Denton's Improbable and Enormous New Music Venue

The Hive is a gaping 12,000-square-foot warehouse at the edge of the 35 Denton umbrella, situated a few feet from the train tracks on the corner of Bell and Sycamore Streets. Next weekend, it will become the largest indoor music venue in Denton -- maybe for four days, and maybe for years to come.

Thousands of festival-goers will walk through its doors to hear bands including Philadelphia weirdos Man Man, peruse a pop-up art fair and step up to one of its two full-service bars. Exactly two months ago, they'd have been standing in the middle of the still-operating Hyper-Head factory alongside massive heavy machinery churning out compressor tank valves.
