Chasca is a glam rock outfit from San Marcos with loads of sex appeal and a dash of filth. Channelling an over-the-top flair straight outta Transylvania in jams like "The Muse and The Martyr," the band feels like the perfect headliner for a shady honky tonk run by Iggy Pop and David Bowie off I-35. The fabulous fiends of Chasca share a stage with La Resaca, the acoustic project of San Antonio's Volcán. Counting about a dozen band members, Volcán is a lively Latin orquestra moonlighting as an indie band in the dusty shadows of South Texas. In the spirit of the group's original lineup, La Resaca features two guitarists, a champion of “The Big Squeeze” accordion competition and rhythm and brass sections that rival Arcade Fire’s sprawling ensembles. Effervescent and enthusiastic, the talented group reimagines traditional folk music for a new generation of young Latinos. Rock out with La Resaca and Chasca at La Botánica, a vibrant spot serving up vegan digs on the North Saint Mary's strip. 8pm, $3, La Botánica, 2911 N. Saint Mary's
