  • The Coathangers
    The Coathangers 7/28
     

    Outside of reality television, porn and contemporary art, there aren’t many places that value amateurism quite like garage rock. From the Shaggs to Meg White, there’s a proud tradition steeped in the simple idea of not having a clue how to play your instrument. It’s one that Atlanta’s Coathangers fully upheld during their first gig in 2006. Nearly eight years have passed since that debut house show and the slapdash tour that followed; now the ATLiens are all but unrecognizable. Armed with their strongest release to date and trimmed to a leaner power trio lineup, bassist/singer Meredith (Minnie) Franco, guitarist/singer Julia (Crook Kid) Kogel and drummer/singer Stephanie (Rusty) Luke have now morphed into a formidable live act with a killer batch of songs to back them up.

  • Toad The Wet Sprocket
    Toad The Wet Sprocket 7/28 8:30PM
     

    ’90s soft alt-rockers Toad the Wet Sprocket called it quits in ’98, but returned in 2010 to release new material. In 2013, TTWS came into the internet age, crowd-funding New Constellation, an update on their acoustic rock jams that hit No. 97 on the Billboard Top 200.

  • King Buzzo (of Melvins)
    King Buzzo (of Melvins) 7/28 8:00PM
     

    You’d be hard-pressed to find a harder working or more dynamic rock musician than Buzz Osborne of the groundbreaking experimental sludge-metal outfit Melvins. Since 1986, Melvins have put out more than 25 studio albums and EPs, touring with a seldom seen ferocity. Pioneers of grunge music, King Buzzo and co. left the genre for others to perfect as they pushed their own experiments into the nether realms of noise and drone. Now, Osborne is on the road with a new solo collection entitled This Machine Kills Artists. The acoustic record, which still manages to display sludge-metal influence, brims with excellent material and represents something truly unprecedented for Osborne.

  • This Is Spinal Tap
    This Is Spinal Tap 7/28 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.

    Texas Public Radio’s Cinema Tuesdays series wraps up with Steven Spielberg’s Oscar-winning sci-fi blockbuster following a young boy (played by San Antonio native Henry Thomas) who befriends an otherworldy being. Released in 1982, E.T. remained the highest-grossing film of all time until Spielberg’s Jurassic Park surpassed it in 1993.
