Producer and internationally known comedian, Poppy Champlin is touring the country with some of the funniest and most talented comedians in her tour, “Queer Queens of Qomedy.” Champlin artfully selects the best of the best lesbian comedians and has them join her at each comedy venue the tour stops on. Now in its eighth year, the tour is proud to have Curve Magazine as the official sponsor for 2014. The two veteran comedians who will be joining her on her Texas tour are Vickie Shaw and Sandra Valls. The show is relatable to everyone whether they are gay, straight, or bi.
Even if Poppy Champlin hadn’t been crowned “America’s Funniest Real Woman” on The Joan Rivers Show in 1993, it’d be hard not to see this touring lineup of lesbian comics as descendants from Rivers’ royal bloodline. Onstage, Champlin and her fellow queens Vickie Shaw (hearing this Houston grandma drawl “Texan by birth, lesbian by grace,” should be medically prescribed to homophobes) and Sandra Valls (a Laredo native named hottest/most bad-ass lesbian Latina comic by anyone keeping score) talk about sexuality, aging, addiction and other things hushed in “polite society.”
Curated by Deborah Keller-Rihn and Melanie Rush Davis, “Mixing It Up” is a one-stop crash-course in some of San Antonio’s most innovative artists, who experiment in this show with mixed media and photographic images. Given the crazy roster of artists involved, which includes Katie Pell, Juan Miguel Ramos, Kemp Davis, Trish Simonite, Ramin Samandari, Mario Garza, Wesley Harvey, Carra Garza and the curators themselves, this could be anything. Worst-case scenario: The viewer learns a little something about a whole lot of artists at once.
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.

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.
