Bowling for Soup plays a free show at the Rockin' Rodeo to film their music video on June 5, 2013

Bowling for Soup, a rock band based in Denton, shot a music video for its new song “Right about Now” on Wednesday night at Rockin’ Rodeo.

“We actually consider ourselves from here. We grew up in Wichita Falls but we moved here in 1996, and this town just embraced us so much,” said Jaret Reddick, the lead singer and writer of the new single. “We love the scene, we love the people.”

Doors opened at 7 p.m. and the band began its free show and video shoot at 10 p.m. Two opening acts included, Ryan Hamilton and Vinyl Pilot. The owner of the venue, Lloyd Banks said 581 people attended on Wednesday.

“It was a great night business wise and more importantly one of the most fun nights I’ve ever had in my club,” said Banks who has owned bars in Denton for 16 years including R-bar and the Groovy Mule. “The fact that they wanted to do it here, it was quite nice that they thought of me.”

Bass player Erik Chandler said Reddick wrote the new song one night when he was at home and everybody else was tweeting about the fact that they were out and having fun.

“It’s about being responsible and staying at home while all your friends are out,” said drummer and former UNT student Gary Wiseman. “It doesn’t relate so much to our motto because we’re usually the ones out having fun.”

The band recently finished recording its new album at The Panhandle House in Denton. A release date has not yet been announced. Other bands to record at the studio on North Locust Street include The Eagles, Eli Young Band, Casey Donahew Band and Flickerstick.

“We call Denton home. We’ve called it home for many years because that’s where everything kind of started happening for us,” Wiseman said. “It’s the first time in 13 years that we have recorded in Denton.”

The band, which has been producing hits like “Ohio,” “Girl All The Bad Guys Want,” and “1985″ since the early 90s, has a very broad fan base. UNT junior pre-political science student Samuel Hunt, who plays darts with lead guitarist Chris Burney, attended the show with his friends, making it his fifth time to see them live.

“It’s very punk,” Hunt said. “I love doing that one dance move, where you bob your head up and down.”

Bowling for soup will perform again as part of the Vans Warped Tour in August and will tour the U.K. for two weeks in October.

The Parker House

Parking staff could have been better. They where huddled in a blanket directing traffic from beside a building. Parker house needs to work on parking and signage. Getting you into parking and to ticket counter. But staff was friendly at the counter. Over all it was good. I would go back. Was about a 20 to 25 minute drive from Carrollton. We make it to several of these every year.
