When Blue Isn’t Enough

All painting enthusiasts are called to the Union Portico right outside the Syndicate and Starbucks on Wednesday, Sept. 22 from 6 to 8 p.m. Spruce up your denim with a splash of color at this event intended to create an artistic space to express yourself. The University Program Council is hosting its free “Denim Painting” event for students who want a relaxing place to hang out with friends and paint their clothes to make them uniquely theirs. UPC encourages those attending to bring their own denim, but will there will be small patches available for students to place on their clothes or bags. Paints, brushes and tape will be provided. Get away from the stress of class for a creative evening full of color and art. Let your imagination paint masterpieces onto your jeans to make them unique to you.  Show up with your denim, friends and innovative minds for an exciting and messy experience. – By Heather Aldridge

Eat, Ask, Look

Sept. 23 in the Union Art Gallery marks the opening eat and ask reception of Erika Jaeggli’s “19 Paintings.” The exhibit is from 5 to 7 p.m. and is free and open to the public. Jaeggli works in different mediums, presenting shows of paintings, drawings and installations that alter large portions of the rooms in which they are displayed. This will be her second time presenting in the Union Art Gallery. In 2020, she presented an installation titled “The Cave” that featured large, stained sheets of fabric hanging in a way that made viewers feel as if they were entering a cave. “The Cave” shared gallery space with two other artists so this will be the first time the gallery will be hers alone. This will be the inaugural exhibition for “19 Paintings,” and it will occupy the space through Sept. 30. Jaeggli is currently pursuing her master’s of fine arts and holds a bachelor’s of arts from Columbia University. – John Anderson

Witch Crafts

Celebrate the changing seasons as Every Witch Way presents the Mabon Market, which brings together four tarot card readers and 21 vendors, many of whom are of a more of spiritualist bent.  The tarot readers will be ready to do your readings at the market to give insight from your past, present or future. The market is hosted by Mellow Mushroom and JK’s Cocktail Lounge on Sept. 25 from 5 to 10 p.m. This will be the second Every Witch Way event sponsored by Bewitched Denton, a local metaphysical gift store. Merely by attending you will be entered in a raffle, although there will only be one winner. Tap into your spiritual side and experience the Mabon Market at 217 E. Hickory St. in Denton. – Katarina Diaz

Mic Drop

Do you love writing poetry? Have a passion for singing? Let your voice be heard at the Syndicate on Sept. 27 from 7 to 8 p.m. for Open Mic Night. This is your chance to step into the spotlight and take the microphone. Performance sign-ups begin 20 minutes before the program, so come early and prepared with a show-stopping performance. Acts have a five-minute limit, and students are requested to refrain from comedy until future open-mic nights where comedy acts will be vetted in advance. What to do if you don’t like being the center of attention? Just come hang out with friends and listen to others who do. The event is hosted by UPC, which is striving to make a community where students can de-stress and hang out with like-minded people at no charge. Get ready for a night of laughter, cheers and loud voices to start off your week. — Heather Aldridge

Celebrate Oktoberfest in September

Few events at UNT compare to the University Program Council’s Oktoberfest. Join the UPC and your fellow students in celebrating Oktoberfest with live music, authentic German food, and the opportunity to appreciate German culture with your peers without having to sit in a classroom to do it. Oktoberfest is celebrated annually worldwide, including at UNT, which unfortunately did not hold the festival last year due to the pandemic. But that will change on Sept. 28 from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Union patio where admission will be free to the entire UNT community. – Megan Canfield

Karaoke Night

Looking for something fun to do? Well, don’t stop believin’ now because UPC is hosting Karaoke Night on Thursday, Sept. 30 in the Syndicate. Whether you’re a certified lover of karaoke or just looking to let it go and have a night that’ll be good 4 u. This event has the anthems that will remind you why you’ve been workin’ for the weekend. It’ll be a party in the U.N.T. and you can bring your best friend or make some while you’re there. The event will be from 6 to 8 p.m. and we’ve got high hopes you’ll be there. You won’t have to walk 500 miles down an old town road to get there either, because the Syndicate can be found right inside of the Union. Don’t stop me now because this event is also completely free! If you don’t feel like participating, on the Mr. Brightside, you can still just come to relax and show your support for all the singers. And remember, Taylor Swift started out singing karaoke so this could be your ticket to stardom, too! – John Anderson
