Since its gradual formation in 2011, Denton's Pageantry has perfected a heady sound, big and open and dreamlike. You can year on that on the Friends of the Year EP, released this summer.
It's the band's debut, but people are taking notice. They just toured their way to Chicago, scored an opening gig for Denton heavyweight Midlake and have made their way solidly onto the local festival circuit (look for them next weekend at Index Fest).
Below, watch as they play a spare and striking rendition of "Disaster" in downtown Dallas.
