Thursday, October 8
Deer Vibes

As Deer Vibes leader Michael Carrillo picks up steam with his side project Michael J and the Foxes, don’t expect the big band to get dropped anytime soon. Complete with their mini orchestra, indie rock darlings and local heroes Deer Vibes soothe with their majestic jams. With the San Antonio Music Awards title for Best Indie Band and a debut album on the way for December, it’s looking like a banner year for the band. Free, 6pm, McNay Art Museum, 6000 N. New Braunfels Ave, (210) 824-5368

Los Fabulocos

Hailing from East Los Angeles, Los Fabulocos are a deft Tex-Mex band, despite living a few states west of the source.

The Marshall Tucker Band

Legacy outfits like The Marshall Tucker Band often only carry one original member, padding a retirement nestegg with the dollars of an audience who wants to hear a journeyman shred “Fire on the Mountain” one more time. But don’t look for the name Marshall Tucker among the members of this Southern rock staple. Named after a blind piano tuner from Spartanburg, South Carolina, The Marshall Tucker Band tours under the direction of singer (and sole remaining OG member) Doug Gray. Sold out, 8pm, Gruene Hall, 1281 Gruene Road, (830) 606-1281

Aaron Neville

The high croon of Aaron Neville is one of the most unique voices in all of popular music. So much so that my father’s Aaron Neville Christmas CD (his own holiday record) drives my family into a December rage every year. Since his first hit in 1966, Neville has been one of New Orleans’ greatest singers making it on the national circuit. $69.50, 9pm, Gruene Hall, 1281 Gruene Road, (830) 606-1281

Twin Shadow

In 2012, George Lewis, Jr. perfected his strain of indie-pop with “Five Seconds,” one of the best songs of the year. Though his 2015 album Eclipse didn’t contain anything that trumped his 2012 achievement, the new work is another great example of his electro-pop. With Lolawolf. $16, 8pm, Paper Tiger, 2410 N. St. Mary's St.

Sunday, October 11
Voodoo Glow Skulls, Piñata Protest

From Riverside, California, Voodoo Glow Skulls are one of the foundational bands of the ska-punk third wave.

With The Phenomenauts, China Wife Motors. $10-$15, 7:30pm, The Korova, 107 E. Martin St., (210) 226-5070
