Have the tides turned? Is San Antonio becoming a spot national acts want to hit, even more than places like Houston, Dallas or Austin? Maybe not completely, but it’s a telling sign that indie-pop group PVRIS (pronounced Paris) has listed San Antonio as their only Texas stop for their headlining 2018 North American Tour.

The trio’s music sounds as if Foals and The XX had a baby. Straight up. It’s danceable, electronic and emotive with sort of dark, echoing vocals that soar between major and minor keys. It’s great stuff, and it’s not surprising that the group is blowing up as fast as they are catching positive reviews from folks like Rolling Stone and Alternative Press.



$25-$79, Thu March 15, 7pm, Aztec Theatre, 104 N. St. Mary’s St. (210) 812-4355, theaztectheatre.com.
