A booming punk spot established in the '60s, the original Taco Land shut down in 2005 after the murder of its owner Ram Ayala. In the past few years, it's returned to new (and meatier) life as Viva Tacoland. Located on primo real estate overlooking the San Antonio River, Viva Tacoland is re-establishing itself as a premier watering hole, music venue, foodie paradise and all around hangout.

Thrown by Viva Tacoland, Something Good Fest promises to be not only the local music onslaught that SA deserves, but what it needs. The lineup is simple: include some of the best music San Antonio has to offer under one roof. 

Artists include: RMRSOctahedronThe Native RoarBright Like the SunYou and I UnderwaterDeer VibesLonely HorseThis is Where Two Oceans MeetFader FriendThe Black Market ClubTelevangelistCollective DreamsReady RevolutionThe Last Nighters, Mr. CompositionJaik Yanez and Tera Ferna.

Partnered with the San Antonio Food Bank and SAY Sí, the Something Good Fest celebrates the colorful culture of SA while giving back to the community. As a state that ranks in the top eight for food insecurity, with one in five adults and one in four children at risk, the San Antonio Food Bank's mission is to help over 58,000 Bexar County residents fight hunger. 

A non-profit multidisciplinary dedicated to enriching SA youth's artistic abilities, arts program SAY Sí is a champion for students striving for the confidence to paint outside the lines and think outside the box. The organization prepares students with the skills necessary to flourish in higher education and future careers. 

Discounted admission to Something Good Fest applies if you donate five or more items from the Food Bank’s 12 most wanted list and $1 dollar of every ticket sale will go towards the SAY Sí program. 

The concert will take place Saturday, September 19 and will start at 3pm. 

Pre-ordered tickets are $10 and the door price will run $12.
