  • Landlady
    Landlady

    These Brooklyn indie rockers are known to throw the sonic kitchen sink at their compositions and live outings. With hues of jazz, blues, rock and classical music, Landlady (helmed by Adam Schatz) is a surprising glow-fi pop-rock outfit poised to do big things with their malleable and vigorous sound. Schatz is no stranger to the music world, though Landlady has only released two albums to date; he has played in the experimental art-rock band Man Man, co-produced NYC Winter Jazzfest and rocked his saxophone for Vampire Weekend. Come dig these guys as they tour their sophomore album Upright Behavior.

  • A Flock of Seagulls
    A Flock of Seagulls 10/23 8:00PM
     

    Maybe it’s that opening on-the-nose Jonathan Livingston ambience or maybe it’s frontman Mike Score’s wail, but AFOS’ lead single “I Ran (So Far Away)” has a bet-the-farm Cinescope grandeur only attempted a couple of other times on their self-titled debut LP and with significantly less success. In hindsight, “I Ran” sounds like the Flock knew they wouldn’t be on our radar for long, but they sure left us a single—and, of course, a silly-ass haircut—for the ages. Score has long since shaved his head, but here’s hoping he’s still giving the people half of what they want.

  • Dance with the Dead
    Dance with the Dead 10/24 8:00PM
     

    The Institute of Texan Cultures opens its doors to a bevy of partygoers dressed as famous dead Texans for the fourth annual Dance with the Dead. The adults-only evening includes a live band, Día de los Muertos art exhibit and an art slam organized by Robert Wilkens. For an additional cost, Willie Mendez and Troy Simchak will lead tours of the museum’s haunted “hotspots.” Oh, and be warned: Guests take their costuming seriously, seeking “out the little nooks and crannies of Texas history” in hopes of winning the evening’s famed costume contest.

  • Big Bad Voodoo Daddy
    Big Bad Voodoo Daddy 10/24 8:00PM
     

    Given the Tobin’s other inaugural bookings, the Symphony’s Pops series leans toward the conservative. But the opener is a different matter altogether, with the Symphony inviting swing revivalists Big Bad Voodoo Daddy for a program that aims “to have you swinging in the aisles.” Getting a symphony to “swing” seems a dubious proposition. But BBVD has been pulling this off with symphonies since 2005, blending a goateed brand of retro swing into the symphony repertoire on the strength of a program mixing big band jazz, jump blues and crooner ballads.

  • Cafe Tacuba
    Cafe Tacuba 10/24 9:00PM
     

    Published in 2012, Rolling Stone’s list of The 10 Greatest Latin Rock Albums of All Time was controversial, but no one argued with the first choice: Café Tacuba’s masterpiece Re (1994) was a game changer which jumped from alternative son jarocho and industrial metal to bolero and mambo, and from funk and norteña to banda and pop. With their second album, the Mexican quartet (AKA Café Tacvba) left no stone unturned, but the variety of genres was just a detail—the power of Re rested on dynamite songs and superb production by Argentina’s Gustavo Santaolalla, who years later would win back-to-back Golden Globes and Oscars for his scores to Babel and Brokeback Mountain. Twenty-five years after the band was formed, and 20 years after their best album, the two-time Grammy and two-time Latin Grammy winners bring their perfect blend of sophisticated art-rock and visceral mestizaje to San Antonio for their 20re–ct25 Tour, during which they will perform Re in its entirety and (we hope) a few other classics. It’s an all-ages party celebrating the legacy of one of the world’s most original (and still relevant) bands in any language.

  • NOSA Fest
    NOSA Fest 10/25 4:00PM
     

    This stacked event just might be boss enough to draw the staunchest inner-loopers to venture a bit farther north this Saturday. NOSA (North of San Antonio) Fest is a one-day, all-ages festival which features a live rodeo, a silent auction, carnival games, food by local chefs, prize giveaways and live music from some of SA’s finest, including Fishermen, Bekah Kelso and the Fellas, Octahedron, and Band of Bandits. We are particularly excited to catch Austin soul collective Mingo Fishtrap in this beautiful outdoor space. A portion of the day’s proceeds will benefit the San Antonio Food Bank.

  • San Antonio Spurs vs. Dallas Mavericks

    After dealing an existential blow to the Heat and signing back their entire roster, the Spurs have a lot to celebrate during the season-opening, pre-game bling ceremony. But don’t expect San Antonio to lose focus against the Mavs, the only team that took SA to seven games in the 2014 playoffs. While the Spurs’ lineup is almost identical to the playoff matchup, Dallas made some big moves, bringing back center Tyson Chandler, picking up former Spur Richard Jefferson and signing the budding threat of Chandler Parsons, though Vince Carter won’t be around to drop any icy three-point daggers.

  • Matisyahu
    Matisyahu 10/31 8:00PM
     

    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.

  • Worldwide Pest Control
  • The Korova

    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.

  • Regal Cinemas Huebner Oaks Stadium 14 & RPX
  • 502 Bar

    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.

  • The Cove

    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.
