Twilight series ends with noon concert

This week’s special July Fourth edition of Twilight Tunes isn’t happening at twilight.

The final concert in the free summer series starts at 12:30 p.m. today on the Square to yield the rest of the holiday to the Denton Noon Kiwanis Club’s annual fireworks and music presentation at Apogee Stadium.

Denton band Sol Tax closes the series for the season. The group was started by a pair of cousins, Sydney Wright and Nathan Norman, hailing from Lubbock. The band’s sound drifts between introspective, spacey chords and sudden fits of Americana, like a fusion of Wilco and CSNY.

Named for a University of Chicago anthropologist, Sol Tax is smart, but not too esoteric. The group writes yearning lyrics and earnest melodies — without being pretentious. Their down-to-earth vibes are at once mellow and powerful.

Their genre is hard to place, switching between bluesy-jazz and folk.

The concert’s featured sponsor is McBride’s Music & Pawn. Denton Main Street Association’s concert series is supported by local merchants and university-affiliated programs.
