                            The “Pompeii from the British Museum” exhibition in 2013 was the first ever held on the important cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum at the British Museum, and the first in London for almost 40 years.

                            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.

                            A writer in the tradition of Juan Rulfo, Jorge Luis Borges and Cesar Aira, Carmen Boullosa shows herself to be at the height of her powers with her latest book. Loosely based on the little-known 1859 Mexican invasion of the United States, Texas: The Great Theft is a richly imagined evocation of the volatile Tex-Mex borderland. Boullosa views the border history through distinctly Mexican eyes, and her sympathetic portrayal of each of her wildly diverse characters—Mexican ranchers and Texas Rangers, Comanches and cowboys, German socialists and runaway slaves, Southern belles and dance hall girls—makes her storytelling tremendously powerful and absorbing. Shedding important historical light on the current battles over the Mexican-American frontier, while telling a gripping story with Boullosa's singular prose and formal innovation, Texas marks the welcome return of a major writer who has previously captivated American audiences and is poised to do so again.

                            Back for its fourth year, the Institute of Texan Cultures brings you its annual “Dance With the Dead” event. The museum’s Halloween dance and masquerade party features a live band, historical costume contest of famous (and infamous) dead Texans, ghost tours, art slam, a Dia de los Muertos exhibit, silent auction, and a cash bar. You can look for music legends Janis Joplin, Buddy Holiday, and the Barrow gang, medical quack John R. Brinkley, pilot Bessie Coleman, Navy Cross recipient Doris Miller, and other Texas heroes, villains, and celebrities amongst the dead at this year's party.

He has thoroughly established himself as one of the important innovative figures of the contemporary music world.

                            Written by J.R. Helton, The Jugheads follows the Steward family on a rollercoaster ride through America's dark side, encompassing urban grit, suburban sprawl, and unspoiled country. Dragged around by his physically and emotionally hectoring father, Jake and the rest of his family must find a way to live in the shadows cast by their own American gothic.

Mason recently released his new album, Future's Past, featuring new versions of his classic songs plus new materials that he has written and performed on tour over the last few years. Renowned for such Traffic hits as “Feelin’ Alright” and “Hole In My Shoe” plus his solo signature tracks “We Just Disagree” and “Only You Know and I Know,” Mason’s acclaimed solo career continues to flourish as he tours the U.S. with his Traffic Jam shows—earning accolades since kicking off January 3 in Atlantic City, NJ—and he is excited to perform the music of Traffic.

                            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.

                            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.

                            The ALS Association Texas Chapter announces San Antonio’s 16th Annual Walk to Defeat ALS - the organization’s largest yearly fundraiser that raises money for patients living with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). The three-mile walk is open to the public and all funds raised will be donated to The ALS Association Texas Chapter, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to finding the cause and cure of ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease.  Funds from the San Antonio walk go directly back into services provided to patients in the San Antonio area, at no cost to them. In addition to the walk, this year’s event will also feature children’s activities, a variety of fun entertainment and a post-walk cookout. Participants are urged to sign advocacy petitions while on-site as part of the organization’s work to bring the importance of ALS research to the attention of officials at all levels of government.

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.
