                            • 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.

                            • Dance with the Dead
                              Dance with the Dead 10/24 8:00PM
                               

                              The Institute of Texan Cultures opens its doors to a bevy of partygoers dressed as famous dead Texans for the fourth annual Dance with the Dead. The adults-only evening includes a live band, Día de los Muertos art exhibit and an art slam organized by Robert Wilkens. For an additional cost, Willie Mendez and Troy Simchak will lead tours of the museum’s haunted “hotspots.” Oh, and be warned: Guests take their costuming seriously, seeking “out the little nooks and crannies of Texas history” in hopes of winning the evening’s famed costume contest.

                            • 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
                               

                              Published in 2012, Rolling Stone’s list of The 10 Greatest Latin Rock Albums of All Time was controversial, but no one argued with the first choice: Café Tacuba’s masterpiece Re (1994) was a game changer which jumped from alternative son jarocho and industrial metal to bolero and mambo, and from funk and norteña to banda and pop. With their second album, the Mexican quartet (AKA Café Tacvba) left no stone unturned, but the variety of genres was just a detail—the power of Re rested on dynamite songs and superb production by Argentina’s Gustavo Santaolalla, who years later would win back-to-back Golden Globes and Oscars for his scores to Babel and Brokeback Mountain. Twenty-five years after the band was formed, and 20 years after their best album, the two-time Grammy and two-time Latin Grammy winners bring their perfect blend of sophisticated art-rock and visceral mestizaje to San Antonio for their 20re–ct25 Tour, during which they will perform Re in its entirety and (we hope) a few other classics. It’s an all-ages party celebrating the legacy of one of the world’s most original (and still relevant) bands in any language.

                              NOSA Fest 10/25 4:00PM
                               

                              This stacked event just might be boss enough to draw the staunchest inner-loopers to venture a bit farther north this Saturday. NOSA (North of San Antonio) Fest is a one-day, all-ages festival which features a live rodeo, a silent auction, carnival games, food by local chefs, prize giveaways and live music from some of SA’s finest, including Fishermen, Bekah Kelso and the Fellas, Octahedron, and Band of Bandits. We are particularly excited to catch Austin soul collective Mingo Fishtrap in this beautiful outdoor space. A portion of the day’s proceeds will benefit the San Antonio Food Bank.

                            • San Antonio Spurs vs. Dallas Mavericks

                              After dealing an existential blow to the Heat and signing back their entire roster, the Spurs have a lot to celebrate during the season-opening, pre-game bling ceremony. But don’t expect San Antonio to lose focus against the Mavs, the only team that took SA to seven games in the 2014 playoffs. While the Spurs’ lineup is almost identical to the playoff matchup, Dallas made some big moves, bringing back center Tyson Chandler, picking up former Spur Richard Jefferson and signing the budding threat of Chandler Parsons, though Vince Carter won’t be around to drop any icy three-point daggers.
