Since its debut in 2009, the multidisciplinary arts extravaganza Una Noche en la Gloria has evolved into a happening that could literally only take place in San Antonio. Launched by Gabriel Quintero Vasquez under the umbrella of the Contemporary Art and Literature Organization (CALO) and sponsored by the Avenida Guadalupe Association, the free event unites musicians, poets, visual artists, performers, fashion designers and scenesters of all stripes for a wild night that takes over an array of Westside venues and — thanks to barricaded streets — maintains the community vibe of a block party.

Mala Luna Music Festival Oct. 29-30 at the Lone Star Brewery
The first large-scale music fest to take over the old Lone Star Brewery touts a remarkable lineup for EDM- and hip hop-loving crowds alike. Top headliners include Kaskade, Houston phenom Travis Scott (who just finished a tour with Rihanna) and the indefatigable Steve Aoki alongside rappers Kevin Gates and G-Eazy. Not forgetting San Antonio’s homegrown talent, local artists IVY, VI$ION, Greg G, Mitch James, KWYK, and Phillip Wolf are all slated to perform. With a mix of EDM and hip-hop, it appears that Mala Luna will be something of a sister festival to Scoremore’s annual El Paso throw-down, the Neon Desert Music Festival. $119
