San La Muerte Fest
Thursday, August 4 — Saturday, August 5

This all-ages fest is about as dark and heavy as they come, representing goth and punk outfits from Australia, Brazil, Denmark and Spain with an impressive undercard of Texas and U.S. bands. En masse, the aesthetic is brooding and black — as the title suggests, these are bands that worship or fetishize death and afterlife. Highlights include Masses, a bewitching post-punk combo from Melbourne with enough book smarts to make nods to Yeats. Gothic synth-punks Moth split the difference between the rigid motorik of Kraftwerk and the despondent tone of Joy Division. A pro tip from their event page reads: “Don’t wear sandals,” which is a solid piece of fashion advice any weekend. But with three days of inevitable moshing, Docs are always the best punk bet. $15-38, Thu. 9pm-2am, Fri. 7pm-12:40am, Sat. 6:30pm-1am, Paper Tiger, 2410 N. St. Mary's St.
