An English boy band? How did Lou Pearlman—the impresario-creep of the ’90s boy band halcyon days—not think of this? By dropping the rounded UK vowel pronunciation in song and picking it up for interviews, One Direction tugs at American teen heartstrings with an unfair advantage (like Manu playing YMCA pickup, or an English boy with a trendy haircut singing to a room full of pre-teen girls). Imagine the wallet-boner on Simon Cowell when he signed One Direction after their stint on The X-Factor. Cowell, you sly English hound, could you have known how much dough you stood to make?

Laurie Ann Guerrero, San Antonio Poet Laureate, reads from her book A Tongue in the Mouth of the Dying. Poet Tim Z. Hernandez also reads selected poems, and inaugural Poet Laureate of San Antonio, Carmen Tafolla emcees.
Mr. Fox is a very clever fox. But oftentimes, it is the cleverest of foxes that makes the greatest enemies. Composed by Opera San Antonio’s Artistic Director Tobias Picker, Fantastic Mr. Fox chronicles a gang of woodland creatures as they attempt to outwit three very brutish farmers. Picker was commissioned by the Roald Dahl Foundation to compose the music for this live action spectacle in 1998 (over 10 years before Wes Anderson’s film made Mr. Fox famous!). Tuesday’s performance is Opera San Antonio’s inaugural offering at the Tobin.
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.
