In the 90s and early 00s there was a guy that would sit in front of the X record shop and play music on his boombox.  His hat pulled low and sunglasses hiding his eyes, he was quite mysterious.  He would listen to music and "kick" his heel to the rhythm, hence the nickname "kicker."  Longtime Denton favorite The Riverboat Gamblers played a show a few years ago at the Boiler Room and they were stoked to see "the kicker" in attendance.
