The Sound and the Fury

No San Antonio bands were chosen for the Vans Warped Tour this year, but you’ve got plenty of chances to support local music and local venues at non-corporate-sponsored events around town.

On Wednesday, you can see Big Soy, the once-retired Michael Jordans of local indie rock, at Limelight (; or country-music up-and comers Josh Abbott Band at County Line (10101 I-10 W; (210) 641-1998). Thursday, it’s flamenco night with Chayito Champion at Azuca Bar Latino (713 S. Alamo; (210) 225-5550); or the debut of Hyperbubble’s new music video, “Candy Apple Daydreams,” at Fl!ght Gallery (1906 S. Flores; (210) 872-2586). Friday, try the Essentials with DJs John Mata and Daecosomoxi at Lava Lounge (2702 N. St. Mary’s; (210) 320-1740), or heavy-metal demons Necurat at Zombies (12285 Nacogdoches; (210) 590-7757). Saturday, out-of-town folk-punkers Andrew Jackson Jihad play the Ten Eleven (1011 Ave. B; (210) 320-9080), and hard-rock fanatics Cult to Follow stir the Kool-Aid at Scout Bar (19314 U.S. Hwy. 281 N.; (210) 494-7700). Sunday, skip the fireworks and opt for alt-rock with the Vanity Press, Dead of Night, and Machine at Thirsty Camel (5307 McCullough); or mellow out at Roots & Kulcha at the Reggae Bar (2016 Austin Hwy.; (210) 772-9891). Monday you can sub-woof your stress away with DJ Dtronic’s Dub Lounge at Atomix (1902 McCullough; (210) 733-3855); and Tuesday arrive early for Mojoe at Club West (4500 West; (210) 530-9100), because you get in free before 9 p.m.
