With over four decades of hits, Smokey Robinson continues to tour and perform around the globe. He is an acclaimed singer-songwriter and was pronounced by Bob Dylan as the “greatest living poet.” His music career first started when he founded The Miracles in high school. Their single, “Shop Around” was a Motown’s first #1 hit. After writing hits for The Miracles, he also wrote hits for other Motown greats like The Temptations, Mary Wells, Brenda Holloway, Marvin Gaye, and others. He continued his songwriting tradition for himself when he launched his solo career. Over his 50-year music career he has more than 4,000 songs and continues to sell sold-out concerts around the world.
Unfairly grouped with the barrage of hair metal acts that swamped the ’80s airwaves, Queensÿrche were actually champions of progressive rock. Operating the musical canvas with sweeping guitar harmonies and beautiful compositions building anticipation with vivid lyrics and glass-breaking vocals, the band laid a foundation for future progressive mainstays like Dream Theater and Between the Buried and Me. While their most popular hit, “Silent Lucidity,” plays to a more somber sound, Queensÿrche’s discography is rampant with hard-rocking hits (“Walk in the Shadows”) and arena rock anthems (“I Don’t Believe in Love”). After being booted from the band and losing the rights to the name, lead singer and key songwriter Geoff Tate is bringing his incarnation of Queensÿrche on a farewell tour before changing the name.
Pearl is excited to announce their new Summer Dance Hall Series in partnership with San Antonio Jazz legend Doc Watkins and sponsored by Corona and Cadillac.
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.

You're about to get stuck in the middle with the Quentin Tarantino classic, Reservoir Dogs. Diamond heists, double crosses and undercover cops are the name of the game in this fast-talking, macho crime caper. Put on a super snazzy all-black suit, stop referring to yourself by your real name and prepare to super-slo-mo-cool-as-fuck walk yourself with at least four of your friends to the Alamo Drafthouse because we're setting you up with one of the slickest, coolest movies to blast out of the '90s. Stop pointing that gun at my dad and come learn the relative importance of tipping, who starred in Get Christie Love!, and what to do when you enter a men's room full of cops carrying a briefcase full of marijuana.

While it’s common to find a play within a play (see anything from Hamlet to The Drowsy Chaperone), the Overtime’s latest spins that technique by presenting a theater within a theater. Penned by Iran-born playwright William Mohammad Razavi, the “comedy about love, theater and the magic of both” plays out backstage at the Oglethorpe during a stormy performance of Egg Fear. Starring combative actors Delilah Small and Antonio Valencia, the unseen production unfolds in a backstage area shared by an agent, a magician, an understudy, a delivery guy and a white rabbit.
Not only is Dan St. Germain a regular on Best Week Ever, but he also has a half hour Comedy Central standup special coming out this spring. He’s been on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, John Oliver’s NY Standup Show, and he’s even created and starred in his own web series called “Kicking Dan Out,” along with his own podcast called “My Dumb Friends.” He’s a playful guy and never fails to give the audience a good time.
After having lung surgery, singer-songwriter Ron Young is back in the mix with his 4-piece Americana band.
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.

The San Antonio Current, in collaboration with the Maverick Music Festival presents the Lone Star Live Summer Music series. The first August edition features live music by local acts Curtis Grimes, Mitch Webb and the Swindles, and Garrett T. Capps and the Only Hipsters.
Lindsay Anderson's bizarre 1968 classic If... stars Malcom MacDowell as a radical youth who bristles against all forces of authority in a rigid boarding school. First in a trilogy of films (followed by O Lucky Man! in 1973 and Britannia Hospital in 1982), the darkly humorous and at times surreal film won the Palme d'Or at the 1969 Cannes Film Festival and has been hailed as “a landmark of British countercultural cinema.”
This open Mic Night is an open performance space for any to come, sign up, perform original or non original music, poetry, performance art, etc.
Picture a 10-gallon hat filled with Lone Star beer. Sound good? Sounds like you’re an ideal crowd member for August’s installment of Lone Star Live, switching from the free series’ indie and punk inclinations toward country. On his new release Our Side of the Fence, Curtis Grimes (pictured) takes the vocal chops he honed on Season 1 of The Voice and puts them to twangy good use. With his band the Swindles, Mitch Webb settles in the cozy middle point between Doug Sahm and Bob Dylan. With the Only Hipsters, Garrett T. Capps plays a violent, fuzzed-out form of blues rock ‘n’ roll.
