  • Igudesman & Joo
    Igudesman & Joo 10/21 7:30PM
     

    Igudesman & Joo market themselves as a cross between West Side Story and The Simpsons, but to my ears, classical music’s Weird Al Yankovic more directly hits the mark. What if Mozart had arranged “I Will Survive?” Or if you turned “La Cucaracha” into a sonata? Sure it takes a bit of classical training to be in on the joke, but Igudesman & Joo’s brilliance lies in the execution, particularly the duo’s incredible musicianship and fine comic timing. Lord knows classical music deserves to have a little fun poked at it and arguably nobody does it with more humor and dedication to the music than these guys.

  • Landlady
    Landlady 10/22 9:00PM
     

    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.

  • Dave Mason's Traffic Jam
    Dave Mason's Traffic Jam 10/24 8:00PM
     

    Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Traffic co-founding member—continues to tour the country this year with an exciting new project billed as “Dave Mason's Traffic Jam”. Mason recently released his new album, Future's Past, featuring new versions of his classic songs plus new materials that he has written and performed on tour over the last few years. Renowned for such Traffic hits as “Feelin’ Alright” and “Hole In My Shoe” plus his solo signature tracks “We Just Disagree” and “Only You Know and I Know,” Mason’s acclaimed solo career continues to flourish as he tours the U.S. with his Traffic Jam shows—earning accolades since kicking off January 3 in Atlantic City, NJ—and he is excited to perform the music of Traffic.

  • 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
     

    The legendary Mexico City quartet will be at the Aztec Theater on October 24. The Latin alternative band is hitting the road to perform songs from their hit album that essentially defined Rock en Espanol during the ‘90s. The highly-anticipated “20re — ct25 Tour” celebrates the band’s 25th anniversary. Initially released in 1994, Cafe Tacvba’s “Re” has since been hailed by many critics and scholars, including Rolling Stone, as the best or most influential latin rock album of all-time.

  • Arjon's

    Even if you can’t dance salsa, Arjon’s will make you want to try. Live music Thursday-Sunday (with free salsa lessons Sundays from 7:30-9pm) sets the stage for seasoned professionals and protégées to cut some serious rug. Cocktail waitresses charge only slightly more if you’re lucky enough to score a table _ otherwise it’s dancing-room only. If you overdose on cumbia and merengue, hit the back patio, where you’re likely to find couples refueling over plates of mini tacos.

  • San Antone Cafe & Concerts

    God won’t return our calls (and we’re not so sure about all the fellas who claim to be his spokespeople), so we can only speculate how he feels about you guzzling hooch in his former home. We can tell you, though, that as of press time, the musicians who’ve played there — Bett Butler & Joël Dilley, the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Rosie Flores — remain largely un-lightning-struck. Maybe the monthly visitation he gets during the popular Sunday Gospel Brunch is enough to stay his wrath.

  • Scout Bar

    Take a lesson from the Boy Scouts of America (not the one about discriminating against gay people) and be prepared when you visit this hybrid live music venue and dance club. Be prepared for a 20-minute drive up 281 if you live downtown. Be prepared to tip the bathroom attendant if you’re the hand-washing kind. Be prepared to see local bands (often for free) on a kick-ass stage that’s hosted the Toadies, Dropkick Murphies, and Billy Bob “Not an Actor” Thornton. And on Big Ass Beer nights, bring along a straight-edge friend or be prepared to call a cab.

  • Tequila Rock Bar
  • 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.

  • The Mix

    Linger too long on the St. Mary’s strip and the crowd will probably push you into the Mix whether you were planning to go or not. This mainstay often ends up the de-facto place to be when you have no particular place to be, but free shows by high-caliber local bands make it a destination spot on the weekends. When an established act’s on the bill, check your claustrophobia at the door and BYO shoehorn.

  • The Ten Eleven

     Stuck in a dilapidated building stuck between SAMA and the VFW, this small room hosting local and visiting bands defines the scene to many indie fans. Thirsty? Go for the changing beer selection, which trends towards Texas micro-brews.

  • The White Rabbit

    The Jefferson Airplane song of the same name might fool you into thinking this place is a hippie joint, but usually what you’ll find waiting down this rabbit hole is a big old-fashioned mosh pit. Bands compete on the indoor and outdoor stages to see whose music is louder and most violent, so odds are you won’t even hear what that damn dormouse said, but most of the pitting is admirably polite, and the pizza place next door is a viable option should all the shoving give you an urge to feed your head.

  • "Altering Space" 10/21 7:00PM
     

    Kathy Armstrong curates a promising batch of photographers at the Russell Hill Rogers Gallery at the Southwest School of Art: Matthew Albanese (New York), Kim Keever (New York), Kila & Rusharc (UK), Seokmin Ko (South Korea), Scott Martin (San Antonio), John Pfahl (Buffalo) and Barry Underwood (Cleveland). Their common task was to construct, alter or recreate imaginary or re-invented landscapes, “whether through dioramas, hand-process or technology, and each photograph has a handmade component with visible evidence of that production.” Given the culture-wide preoccupation with meta-landscape, and the possibilities of digital technology, it’ll be difficult for this show not to be fascinating.  

  • The Evolution of Irrationality: Insights from Monkeys

    "The Evolution of Irrationality: Insights from Monkeys" is presented by Dr. Laurie Santos, as part of the Mind Science Foundation’s 2014 Distinguished Speakers Series. Over the past few years, Santos has examined the roots of human irrationality by studying the way our primate relatives make decisions. Her experiments in "monkeynomics" have shown that monkeys make some of the same silly financial choices as humans do. But her work has also revealed ways in which human choices are uniquely irrational - with monkeys sometimes making smarter choices than we do.
