The first non-fictional flick Elvis starred in since his silver screen debut in ’56, this ’70 documentary by Denis Sanders follows Elvis’ return to music after his long flirtation with Hollywood.
In conjunction with the Bihl Haus exhibition “HOT! SA Artists Respond to Climate Change,” the Woodlawn hosts a panel discussion with Alyssa Burgin (Texas Drought Project) Diana Lopez (Southwest Workers Union), Lanny Sinkin (Solar San Antonio) and Jason St. Sauver (Mitchell Lake Audubon Center). A screening of Leah Mahan's documentary Come Hell or High Water: The Battle for Turkey Creek follows the discussion.

Ugly duckling yearns for playboy son of her father’s employer. Playboy son ignores her. Duckling goes to Paris and comes back a swan. Madness ensues. Thus is the age-old tale of love, longing and missed connections exhibited in 1954’s Sabrina, starring Audrey Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart. You may come for the sugar-sweet wit, but you’ll stay for the costume design. Sabrina marks the first collaboration between Hepburn and Givenchy, the designer who developed the picture-perfect elegance of the actress’ wardrobe. The McNay screens this classic as part of its 60th anniversary film series.
While the vast majority of Fotoseptiembre’s wide-ranging offerings land on gallery walls with some sort of curatorial slant in tow, “Somos San Antonio” comes together in a refreshingly organic fashion. Inviting community involvement via submissions from local photographers of all ages and skill levels, the recurring exhibition highlighted vanishing and neglected landmarks with 2013’s nostalgic “Places That Once Were” and this year shifts its focus in a slightly cheerier direction with “San Antonio Faces at Historic Places.” Billed as “the first National Trust Historic Site in the state of Texas,” 19th-century King William landmark Villa Finale once again hosts the juried show, which presents local shutterbugs with the sole requirement of capturing subjects at one of the Alamo City’s many storied locales.
Pushing boundaries for 29 years, Jump-Start Performance Co. is an SA institution rooted in experimentation and collaboration. A former fixture in the Blue Star Arts Complex, the performance art troupe unveils a mysterious new production this week in its new Beacon Hill space. Directed by Marisela Barrera and developed through “a rehearsal process of performance experiments, improvisation and story-sharing,” Oscuridad plays out during the final hours of a doomed cantina frequented by shadowy characters La Lechuza, Fantasma, El Señor, the Handless Maid and La Muerte.
Datpiff.com is awesome and free, but their most-listened-to mixtapes currently include five from Lil Wayne and three from Wiz Khalifa, so those seeking the newest thing in hip-hop might be better off going outside. Art of War challenges MCs and beat-makers to deliver the goods live in original-track battles. Not all will be good, but some will be great and you probably never would’ve thought to Google any of them. That goes triple for break dancing and graffiti, well represented here but mostly discovered online via YouTube roulette.
“These Words Are Bound,” presented by SATX Music and Die Happy Productions, is a great chance to catch a smattering of up-and-coming local/regional hip-hop talent and give to those in need. The unique event, which will feature hip-hop performances, live art and food trucks in the tranquil setting of Blackgold Emporium and The Little Patch Garden, doubles as a book drive for the Eastside Promise Neighborhood. We are especially excited about peeping SA rapper LaJIT (above), whose brooding and unapologetically personal flows, delivered with razor alacrity, make him one the most exciting emcees in town.
Akeda, the fifth studio album from Grammy-nominated musician, Matisyahu is out today on Elm City Music. Matisyahu declares, “Akeda is the kind of album an artist makes when there is no other creative choice but to turn oneself inside-out, to scrape the insides and reveal everything raw.”
Matisyahu first made a name for himself with his album Live at Stubbs, quickly followed by Youth. Both albums achieved Gold status, and Youth was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Reggae Album. 2009¹s Light reached #1 on the Reggae Album chart, and stayed in the top spot for 34 weeks. Matisyahu’s 4th studio album, Spark Seeker, also debuted at #1 on the Reggae chart. Matisyahu's new album AKEDA was released on June 3rd.
Children, parents and caregivers can take part in fun, hands-on activities and create works of art together.
Enjoy art, food, and beverages at several locations in Boerne. This event is open to the public. Look for the 2nd Saturday banner at participating locations.
A gritty new addition to SA’s evolving River Walk scene, the former Ruta Maya is back from the dead with a hardcore case of the punks. Other than a comfy white couch here and there, there are no coffeehouse remnants. High-octane live music attracts a mixed alternative crowd on certain nights, but it was a DJ spinning vintage New Order that made us want to know more. For a true taste of the SA underground, hang downstairs, where we were (accidentally) stomped on by a boot-clad mosher.
Live music venue with possibly the best acoustics in town and an impressive beer menu and nightly drink specials. Best use: Anytime live music is onstage; typically no cover during the week, while weekend covers stay under $10.
Justly famous for its fish tacos, the Cove is also a good location for locavores and vegetarians thanks to owner Lisa Asvestas’s commitment to sustainable food sources (she can tell you where to find raw milk, too). Beer and wine tastings, plus live music and the adjacent laundromat make it a one-stop lifestyle shop without the Austin attitude.
