Jessie Frye Covers the Mountain Goats' "The Best Ever Death Metal Band in Denton" (NSFW)

Denton's own Jessie Frye tackles the latest installment of 35 Denton's cover series with perhaps the most Texas-referential one yet, reinterpreting the Mountain Goats' "The Best Ever Death Metal Band in Denton," off 2002's Emperor Jones LP, All Hail West Texas. Gone is John Darnielle's small-town story about metal bros Jeff and Cyrus, replaced with a black & white, pseudo-sacrificial, NSFW romp through North Texas woods.

Between this video and the Best Coast one earlier this week, 35D is certainly doing a great job of making us feel weird "inside."

Also, where are all these covers going to end up, hmm? We'll probably find out soon, yes?

In other news, this Saturday night, 35 Denton does Dallas at 2826 Arnetic, where they'll be showcasing the talents of fest acts -topic, Soviet, the Demigs and Mexican Lions. Bonus: You could win a wristband for the fest.

Their schedule is now live, so get to plotting.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
