Glitch: A Night of Art & Arcades

Although the official grand opening of the new West Side arcade Dreamonoid’s is still a few months away, according to owner Christian P. Rios, the San Antonio community is invited to a sneak peek of the space, which will feature works from local artists, including Megan Solis, David Almaguer and Louie Chavez, who created the somewhat controversial mural on the facade of what was once a health services nonprofit. After purchasing the building last year, Rios, 25, got some pushback and online detractors when he commissioned Chavez to paint over the decade-old mural “Seeds of Solidarity” by artists Mary Agnes Rodriguez and José Cosme. With images of iconic Latino leaders now replaced by a goopy slime monster (and other renovations near completion), Rios’ next order of business is to continue to fill the venue with a lot more machines. He hopes his arcade can be a place that will keep kids off the streets and out of trouble. “I’ve always wanted to work in an arcade, so to own one is a dream come true,” Rios told the San Antonio Current last week. “It’s been an awesome journey so far.”

Randy’s Rodeo

Once a country-focused dance hall, this venue hosted the Ramones, Rush, L7, the Beastie Boys and Patti Smith in addition to an infamous 1978 Sex Pistols gig. Now its hosts bingo nights as Randy’s Bingo. KISS-FM DJs Joe Anthony and Lou Roney built an extension onto Randy's stage during the ’70s after booking Canadian prog-rock band Rush and realizing all of the equipment wouldn’t fit. For many, the Sex Pistols' gig (pictured) remains Randy's most legendary.
