Denton’s Community Bike Shop, Querencia, is having a benefit fundraiser show tomorrow night at Dan’s Silverleaf. After the last year of operating their all-volunteer 501c3 non-profit out of a backyard, they’re finally graduating to a generous outdoor space next to Rubber Gloves Rehearsal Studios on Sycamore. The remarkable proximity to the downtown, the coming DCTA commuter train, and SE Denton will enable them to expand shop hours and help get even more folks on bikes in 2010. Since they’re building on empty concrete space, they’ll need to build a fence and several 10 X 10 shop structures (to avoid needing a building permit for one larger structure).
Proceeds from the show will help them build their new permanent shop, and they’ll soon be moving the shop inventory by bike to the new location.
Doors at 8PM; $5 for cyclists, $7 for drivers
- Mariachi Quetzal
- The Angelus
- Old Snack
They’ll have reggae and soul vinyl DJ’d before and after the show, and plenty of bake sale goods.
