    If Cheek to Cheek, Tony Bennett’s upcoming album of duets with Lady Gaga sounds crazy to you, realize your grandparents were equally perplexed in the late 1950s when the already famous Bennett started recording with jazz legends Art Blakey and Count Basie. From his first chart topper (“Because of You,” 1951) to his most recent offering (2011’s Duets II, released on his 85th birthday), Bennett—a WWII vet who helped liberate a concentration camp, marched for civil rights with MLK, and has a painting displayed in the Smithsonian—has been a fill-in for Perry Como and a mentor on American Idol, Johnny Carson’s first musical guest and Amy Winehouse’s last collaborator, all without significantly altering his style or song selection. God forbid he ever actually try to reinvent himself, because America just doesn’t make them like that anymore.

    Austin Forrest 7/23 7:00PM
     

    One doesn’t usually associate Americana singer-songwriters with being gear nerds, but Austin Forrest can spar with the gnarliest of roadies. Using a looping pedal, Forrest lays down the rhythm section on the bongo and cajón, the song’s bones on the rhythm guitar, then shreds lead on top. Forrest loops three part harmonies to complement his tunes, challenging the role of the barside/restaurant patio crooner.

  • Bangerz & Sass Sing-Along
    Bangerz & Sass Sing-Along 7/23 7:00PM
     

    What the heck is Bangerz & Sass? Well for starters, after going to Miley's Bangerz tour this year we immediately knew we wanted to have a special night of Miley Cyrus amazing at the Alamo. But as great as she is, we knew that we wouldn't be satisfied if we only played her hits and didn't hear from any of the other leading pop princesses of today. So we went through all of our Katy Perry collection and fell in love with everything there. Then we wanted to hear some Taylor Swift, because we were starting to feel 22 and we felt like she belonged with us. Then that led us to some Ellie Goulding, and then some Ariana Grande, and eventually we were even rocking out to the Chainsmokers' #SELFIE and wondering why the DJ was playing "Summertime Sadness" when it wasn't even the summer. Our DJs are taking all of that and mixing it together into the hottest party of July, featuring plenty of Katy Perry's "Fireworks," a total "Party in the USA," and soooo much more. We're going to start the night with a Twerk Off on stage, and then it's just going to get more awesome from there. Be a Teenage Dream and join us!

  • This Is Spinal Tap
    This Is Spinal Tap 7/23 7:15PM
     

    First in Christopher Guest’s acclaimed list of ensemble cast “improvisational” comedies (followed by Waiting for Guffman, Best in Show, A Mighty Wind, and For Your Consideration), the 1984 mockumentary This Is Spinal Tap chronicles a fictional British heavy metal band touring America tour in support of a comeback album titled Smell the Glove. Through concert footage and interviews with filmmaker Marty Di Bergi (Rob Reiner), the band’s dim present and bizarre past comes to light complete with anecdotes about former drummers who died by spontaneous combustion, a bizarre gardening accident and choking to death on the vomit of person(s) unknown.

  • Rob Baird
    Rob Baird 7/24 8:30PM
     

    Rob Baird will be the first one to tell you that he hasn’t always been 100%, shall we say, forthright as a songwriter. Back in college (not too terribly long ago), he recorded an album that he has since “completely buried” — primarily, he says, because back then, “I just wasn’t writing about anything that really meant anything to me.” His next album, 2010’s Blue Eyed Angels (which he considers his proper debut), was a fair deal closer to his heart, but even then he was still an artist in search of himself. Songs like “Could Have Been My Baby,” “Blue Eyed Angels” and especially “Fade Away” all demonstrated that he was ultra-confident in the hooks department and talented enough to sound like he knew what he was doing.

  • TPR Presents: The Science of Sound

    With the Youth Orchestra of San Antonio providing a test sountrack, TPR’s free event invites guests to listen to the Tobin itself, hearing how the peformance space changes and magnifies the music being played. Acousticians, engineers and designers of the Tobin will break down the science of acoustics, from sound’s reverberation properties to how building shape can affect audio. Let’s just hope the TPR or Tobin folks will make good use of the opportunity to drop a Beastie Boys “Sound of Science” joke.

  • OBN III's
    OBN III's 7/24 9:00PM
     

    Though they live in Austin, OBN III’s members make their sonic home in the Motor City. Strutting like Raw Power-era Iggy, shredding like Fred “Sonic” Smith, OBN III’s play pure, fist-through-the-drywall, 40-to-the-face rock ‘n’ roll. With SA punkers Fruit Punch and White Christ.

  • Otis the Destroyer, Sick/Sea, Feuding Fathers

    Though the name would be perfect for a band of the heavy metal variety, Otis the Destroyer is anything but abrasive. The Austin-based blues group is indeed heavy on soul and hardcore for good, old-fashioned rock ‘n’ roll. Indie-poppers Sick/Sea’s sugary sweet ballads can cure just about any illness with soulful ethereal vocals and powerful harmonies. The term “math rock” is often confused as being for geeks, but SA’s Feuding Fathers prove otherwise. With complex drumming and elaborate guitar work, Feuding Fathers are the kings of mathematical cool.

  • Austin Mahone, The Vamps, Fifth Harmony, Shawn Mendes

    Like the bulk of Austin Mahone’s Instagram account, this one’s a selfie. In a white tank top, hair coifed up real big, Mahone arranges his facial features in the manner of good-looking people well versed in taking pictures of themselves—lips lightly pursed, eyebrows up, posing without posing. “Running on the beach will be the death of me,” the caption says. It’s enough to garner 7,000 comments and 332,000 little hearts of approval from Mahone’s massive teen following, an audience seemingly dependent on an IV drip of Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Known as the Mahomies, Austin’s crew numbers well into the millions. Rising originally on Youtube, Mahone now holds some serious influence over the young wallets and fluttering stomachs of his adolescent audience. But as “Baby” did to Bieber, Mahone needs one smash single to boost him into the next level of superstardom. At 18-years-old, Mahone’s got the career infrastructure in place to jump to the .01 percent of Big Pop. More importantly, it appears he’s got the workhorse ethic to follow through at a vital crossroads period for teen idols, when the decisions of legal adulthood can send them into dens of vice and crumbling anxiety. At 18, on the road for his second headlining tour, Mahone’s already light-years away from his first bout of videos, singing from his bedroom in the doldrums of San Antonio.

  • 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 Red Baron
  • 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.

    Hyped as “the biggest show of the year,” promoter Rey Lopez’s birthday extravaganza lures eight RuPaul’s Drag Race alums to the Heat for an over-the-top night of high camp and seasoned lip-synching. Emceed by 2014 Best of San Antonio winner Tencha La Jefa, the gender-bending bash features performances by Season 2 fan favorite Raven (a self-described “bitter bitch” who styles herself as a “mysterious, dark, ice queen”); Laotian queen Jujubee (who enjoys “long walks on the beach, big dicks and fried chicken”); costume designer and insult comic Bianca Del Rio (the series’ first ever Hispanic winner, pictured); “overwhelmingly disliked” showgirl Phi Phi O’Hara (who stirred up heaps of controversy on Season 4); Puerto Rican performer Yara Sofia (who took home the title of Miss Congeniality on Season 3); fellow Boricua Jessica Wild (a choreographer and recording artist who’s collaborated with Mexican superstar Gloria Trevi); SoCal drag fixture Detox Icunt (a member of the band Tranzkuntinental who’s made appearances in videos for Rihanna and Ke$ha); and Miss Gay America 2010 Alyssa Edwards (an accomplished “nailographer” and drag mother of fellow Texan Shangela Laquifa Wadley).
