With its fifth installation and a recent partnership with The Tobin Center, the Maverick Music Festival is gearing up for an explosive weekend of solid music. Perhaps most notable this year are hip-hop heavy weights De La Soul, the legendary rap trio from Long Island with their classic jam “Me, Myself and I” and a Grammy award winning collaboration with Gorillaz on “Feel Good Inc.” Also on the Maverick roster is Bastille, Young The Giant, The Naked and Famous, Minus The Bear, Honey Honey, Generationals, Small Black, Carla Morrison and Book Of Love, a recently re-united synth-pop band from the late 1980s. Since its inception in 2013, Maverick Music Festival’s aim has been to “elevate live concerts in the Alamo City to the next level.” It’s something they’ve certainly done in recent years with headliners like Run The Jewels, Flaming Lips and Cypress Hill. What’s also pretty dope about Maverick is their inclusion of local talent. San Antonio bands don’t have the opportunity to rub elbows with national acts as frequently as bands in other Texas cities, like Austin and Dallas, so getting the chance to share stages with artists that don’t play shows in San Antonio often is an awesome opportunity for hometown talent, which this year will include soulful indie rockers Fishermen, experimental prog trio Verisimilitude and Wayne Holtz, a local queer icon and indie pop performer. $99-$169, 5-11pm Fri, 11am-11pm Sat, La Villita, Maverick Plaza, 418 Villita St., maverickmusicfestival.com. — CC
