This Saturday San Antonio will protest along with others worldwide against the use of genetically modified (GM) seeds that have shown to lead to serious health conditions and the bill that allows the seeds to be sold. Monsanto Company, the agricultural biotechnology company responsible for creating the seeds, is backed up by the "Monsanto Protection Act" which bans courts from stopping the sales of the seeds that can cause the development of cancer tumors, infertility, and birth defects. Protestors demand the repeal of relevant provisions of the "Monsanto Protection Act", labeling GM organisms (GMOs) to allow consumers to make informed decisions, and further research to be done on the health risks of GMOs. Events similar to the rally will take place in at least 250 cities and 36 countries that same day, and eight Europeon Union member states have imposed bans on cultivating GMOs. The march will begin at the Peark Brewery at 11:30am and end at the Alamo, and the rally will begin at 1pm in the Alamo Plaza with feature speakers and entertainment.
Speakers will include: Diane Baines, who has worked in the healthcare industry for 27 years and will discuss health risks of GMOs; Organic Take-out restaurant Sweet Yam's Chef Gus who will talk on nutrition and wellness; Niko Nanoski, eight year Army Veteran and Nurse, will talk about his experiences on the effect of food and health; Urban Farmer Nicholas Keel will discuss the importance of seeds and share farming/gardening techniques.

Time — and possibly Dead Horse’s dabbling in death metal on their 1996 album BOIL(ing) — dealt former lead shouter Allen “Alpo” Price a cruel hand. “I can’t sing so good anymore,” Alpo laughingly laments on the recent Making a Dead Horse Live DVD. Their solution? Recruiting a fifth horseman, Michael Argo, who capably injects a menacing presence into the Houston band while remaining true to their hard-earned legacy. The DVD indisputably proves that the reactivated Horse is no desperate cash-grab attempt. The DVD chronicles a riotous Argo debut at the sold-out H-town reunion show in 2011, with a couple of Austin performances (including their Fun Fun Fun Fest set) further cementing the fact the resurrected Horse is as consistent as it is corrosive. With The Cutthroats and Pillcrusher. (See Dead Horse feature at sacurrent.com).
Hello Studio hosts a screening of two videos written, recorded, and produced by Joe Raymond Vega, formerly of the band Xry. Exploring gender roles and sexuality, Vega's works speak to "those who indulge and are not afraid . . . everyone who has had to deal with racial or ethnic cruelty . . . straight, gay, and lesbian . . . outcasts of American society."
Hard-rocking bands including To Every Enemy, Birth Of My Blasphemy, Fortunes, lovelettertypewriter, Michael Anthony, Mourning Sky, Jeremiah Brevdad, The Paladiom, Buried Under Texas, Dead Like You, Hardside, Better Luck Tomorrow, To Serve Man, Just A Dream, Ammo, Of Grand Design, Collect Your Dead, and Stomping on Iris unite to celebrate the Rabbit's anniversary.
If you’ve ever lamented that you were born too late to see one of America’s founding hardcore punk bands, worry no more. And if you’ve ever worried that you’d never see that band split into two factions and beef at each other like an old married couple, well, you’re in luck there, too. The “official” version of Black Flag, claiming that title by dint of being led by guitarist and SST label boss Greg Ginn, hits the Korova for an all-ages show, just like the gigs your parents used to go to before Ginn qualified for AARP membership. They’ll be running through classics from before the band’s disintegration 25 years ago as well as some new material from their forthcoming album. Lifelong pot-stirrer Ginn may have some choice words for the other version of the band, currently touring as “Flag” with double the original members.
Much like author Mo Chorfi, Cuban artist Adrian Rumbaut found creative inspiration in the relentless commodification of Marilyn Monroe (1926-1962) and Ernesto “Che” Guevara (1928-1967). While Morfi’s novel Marilyn and El Che in the Mirror of Love and Death sends a JFK-obsessed Monroe to meet Guevara on a mission to rectify the Bay of Pigs, Rumbaut’s multimedia forays (including the inter-related projects Contraparte and Diagramas Pictóricos) package the pair as something of a power couple. Fused together in layered portraits and conceptual fashion designs, it’s hard to tell where her Hollywood ends and his revolution begins. “Icons” imports Rumbaut’s intriguing studies in “visual duality” to Bihl Haus Arts.
