    Austin Forrest 8/23 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.

  • Shooter Jennings
    Shooter Jennings 8/24 8:30PM
     

    With an outlaw country sound that incorporates elements of Southern rock, blues, psych-rock, and even industrial music, Shooter Jennings, the son of country music legend Waylon Jennings, has showcased his own chops as a songwriter and a musician ever since his 2005 debut with Put the “O” Back in Country. His stop at Sam’s Burger Joint this weekend finds him still supporting the hit-and-miss concept album Heirophant: The Magic and the highly experimental George Jones tribute EP Don’t Wait Up, even as he prepares for the release of his Countach EP, due out later this year.

  • ​Foreigner
    ​Foreigner 8/26 8:00PM
     

    Without Foreigner, movies and TV shows in the ‘80s would have a lot more awkward silences in those scenes of people with feathered hair checkin’ one another’s hot bloodedness while “Waiting for a Girl Like You” plays at moderate volume—not to mention all the countless scenes in the decades following that ironically recreated those scenes. Look for middle-aged couples breaking out the white leather, and, of course, 20-and-30 somethings sporting the same. What the hipsters might not know is they may very well be participating in a costumed reenactment of the night of their conception.

  • Foreigner
    Foreigner 8/26 8:00PM
     

    With 10 multi-platinum albums and 16 Top 30 hits, the band continues to propel sold-out tours and album sales, now exceeding 75 million. Responsible for some of rock and roll’s most enduring anthems including “Juke Box Hero,” “Feels Like the First Time,” “Urgent,” “Head Games,” “Say You Will,” “Dirty White Boy,” “Long, Long Way From Home,” and the number one hit “I Want to Know What Love Is,” Foreigner continues to rock the charts more than 30 years into the game.

  • 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.

  • Sam's Burger Joint

    You’ve gotta walk over to the restaurant next door to get them, but Sam’s burgers are a damn sight better than standard bar food. Carry one back to the bar and stuff your face while you watch one of the large variety of bands, from alt rock to country to cumbia, that commandeer the mid-size stage, but expect to pay extra for a booth reservation if you want to set that sandwich on a table when a nationally known act like Joe Ely or Kinky Friedman comes to town.

  • 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.

    If you grow tired of getting all your chuckles from people who look, think and act just like you and your group of friends, Tanyalee Davis might have the laughs you’re looking for. Standing 3-foot-6, Davis’ perspective is necessarily different from most, but the common threads of human experience and her gifts as a storyteller make her endlessly relatable, and the joy in her enormously confident, sex-positive act is infectious and life-affirming. Promoting empathy through dirty jokes? There oughta be a prize for that.

  • "The Silent World" 8/23 5:00PM
     

    Not unlike Contemporary Art Month in March, Fotoseptiembre often arrives early and stays late. Typically brimming with everything from traditional landscapes and still lifes to elaborately staged scenarios and racy pictorials, the South Texas-based festival of photography opens its 2014 chapter on a colorful yet meditative note by pairing scuba-diving lensmen Robert Michaelson and Jim Sparkman in the duo show “The Silent World.” Promising a visual journey to “the depths of the ocean,” the exhibition gets up close and personal with a number of aquatic beasties including a baby turtle, a “peacock flounder,” an anemone and a sci-fi-worthy marine mollusk called a nudibranch.

  •  Oscuridad
    Oscuridad 8/23 8:00PM
     

    Pushing boundaries for 29 years, Jump-Start Performance Co. is an SA institution rooted in experimentation and collaboration. A former fixture in the Blue Star Arts Complex, the performance art troupe unveils a mysterious new production this week in its new Beacon Hill space. Directed by Marisela Barrera and developed through “a rehearsal process of performance experiments, improvisation and story-sharing,” Oscuridad plays out during the final hours of a doomed cantina frequented by shadowy characters La Lechuza, Fantasma, El Señor, the Handless Maid and La Muerte.

  • Moderator Fred Williams and expert panelists Ada Babino (independent filmmaker), Kymberly Keeton (writer and art librarian), Carol Adam-Means (mass communications professor), Margaret Richardson (adjunct professor) and Antoinette Winstead (drama and mass communications professor) come together to explore the portrayal of the African-American woman in literature and media from years past to today.
