Parker McCollum

Fri., June 28, 7:30 p.m.
The Backyard Amphitheater 2254 US-87, Fredericksburg Fredericksburg, TX

Buy Tickets$20


This Austin-based country artist is known for turning his relationship frustrations into songs you can not only relate but dance along to. After all, there’s nothing wrong with two-steppin’ while lamenting the crazy ways of your ex.

Massive Brain Damage, Executioner, X.I.L, Bad Ideals

Fri., June 28, 8 p.m.
The Guillotine 1816 N Main Ave, San Antonio Central


Massive Brain Damage, a hardcore outfit from LA, top this bill of punk and extreme metal. The band’s bassist, Ruben Alvarez, sports a Maiden T-shirt on in their promo shot — always an asset for a four-stringer. (210) 227-2623

Fairwell, Blood Between Us, Circadia, In Balance, Planetary, Above My Enemy

Fri., June 28, 8 p.m.
The Rock Box 1223 E. Houston St., San Antonio Downtown


This bill’s metalcore headliners pride themselves on bringing — and being full of — “Southern California emotion.” That said, they’ll put the latest addition to the Rock Box to the test in the intimate basement area that’s acquired shows originally booked for the recently closed Jack’s Patio Bar. (210) 677-9453

Appleseed Cast

Fri., June 28, 8 p.m.
Paper Tiger 2410 N. St. Mary's St., San Antonio St. Mary's strip

Buy from TicketFly$13


Although its career tracked that of ’90s emo acts Cap’n Jazz and Joan of Arc, Kansas’ Appleseed Cast didn’t make a huge impact until the 2000s, when its textured guitar work and winsome singing caught fire. While there was an aggressive edge to the band’s music, the atmospheric power behind its sound was more akin to bands like Explosions in the Sky than in-your-face hardcore. (210) 841-3771

Quaker Folk

Fri., June 28, 9 p.m.
Brick at Blue Star 108 Blue Star, San Antonio Southtown


For a bunch of pacifists, the Society of Friends — otherwise known as Quakers — sure get people riled up, what with their refusal to fight other people’s wars or own other folks as slaves and all. Arizona noiseician and practicing Quaker Stephen A. Cosand stirs up a ruckus of his own via his Quaker Folk project, trading in the righteous riffage of his straight-edge hardcore background for sanctified static. Cosand describes his live shows as opportunities to treat blown-out noise walls as meditative prayer practice, and while there’s no mistaking Quaker Folk’s feedback squalls for meetinghouse silence, there is definitely a peaceful stillness at the center of the storm. Dr. Noize and Shadow People round out the boisterous bill. (210) 262-8653

Midland, Paul Cauthen, Desure

Sat., June 29, 7 p.m.
Whitewater Amphitheater 11860 FM 306, New Braunfels New Braunfels


When a band hails from Dripping Springs, Texas and got its name from a Dwight Yoakum song, you already know that you’re in store for some serious country goodness. Such is the case with neo-traditionalist country act Midland. The trio dropped a self-titled EP in 2016 and its debut (and, so far, only) album On the Rocks in 2017. Paul Cauthen — a singer-songwriter from Tyler who mixes rock, soul and gospel into his hard Texas country sound — shares the bill. Los Angeles singer-songwriter Josh Desure, who records and performs as Desure, will round things out with his Springsteen-influenced take on Americana. All told, this show presents a fine opportunity for fans of new-school country artists with old-school tendencies to get to know some new talent. These three acts also happen to share the trait of putting on rousing, perhaps even bruising, live shows.

Kivi

Sat., June 29, 8 p.m.
Limelight 2718 N St. Mary's, San Antonio Central


Billed as “an evening of house and techno,” this event will include lighting, lasers and visuals to go along with the music. Of course, it will also include a healthy serving of “the untz,” courtesy of your host Kivi. (210) 995-7229; (210) (FAX)

Strangelove

Sat., June 29, 8 p.m.
Aztec Theatre 104 N St Mary's St, San Antonio San Antonio

Buy Tickets$16


Not only content with sounding exactly like Depeche Mode at their peak, Strangelove’s commitment to accuracy goes down to the smallest detail. For example, the singer rocks a bare torso while fog machines spray full blast and lasers fill the venue with moody splashes of color. You’ll feel like you stepped back into the Reagan era. (210) 812-4355

Seth Shaw Quartet

Sat., June 29, 8 p.m.
Bar 301 23567 W. Interstate 10, San Antonio Far North


If swing and soul are your thing — or soulful swing for that matter — then hanging with the hip cats in the Seth Shaw Quartet may be exactly what the doctor ordered this Saturday night.

Rosie Flores

Sat., June 29, 8 p.m.
The Lonesome Rose Honky Tonk & Backyard 2106 North Saint Mary's Street, San Antonio St. Mary's strip

Buy Tickets$10


Longtime Texas musical treasure Rosie Flores’ approach to musical Americana runs the gamut, working in elements of country, jazz, rockabilly and Mariachi. Even at the age of 68, she still puts on a dynamite show.

Taco City Rockers #2 Release Party with The Hickoids

Sat., June 29, 10 p.m.
The Bang Bang Bar 119 El Mio Drive, San Antonio Central


During the early ’80s, Texas was a hotbed of pissed-off and creative punk acts, ranging from the Austin’s Big Boys and Dicks to Houston’s Really Red and the Mydolls. San Antonio participated in that uprising too, but with fewer commercially released recordings to show for its efforts. Fifteen years ago, a homespun compilation album called Taco City Rockers set out to right that wrong, serving up a sampling of the city’s punk underground going back to the early ’80s. Now, Kaniption Records, the label behind the release, has dropped a second installment — this one tackling the tall order of documenting 40 years of SA punk. The new LP does an admirable job of hitting the high points, from the New York Dolls-influenced Vamps — arguably the city’s first punk outfit — to the recently launched Sissies, whose tsunami of sound does its forbears proud. The Hickoids, whose song “TJ” is featured on Taco City Rockers #2, will play the launch show, along with Texacala Jones Pony Island Express and the Genzales.

Buy from Ticketmaster$29.50


Americana stalwarts The Band of Heathens recently went into their hometown studio in Austin, TX to record their own version of the classic Ray Charles album “A Message from the People.” In a time where the downtrodden need a voice again, the Heathens have delivered the message paying homage to one of the most important voices in American song history. The band will be doing some limited touring to support this release with a two-set show; one set will be the performance of the Ray Charles album and another set will be The Band of Heathen’s own brand of Americana. (210) 226-5700
