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.

Good Poems at the Good Kind

Sun., June 30, 4 p.m.
The Good Kind Southtown 1127 S St Mary's St, San Antonio Central


Trinity University professor and recent San Antonio Poet Laureate Jenny Browne has curated an ongoing series of poetry readings at The Good Kind’s picturesque Southtown location. This month, the series returns with a stacked lineup, featuring none other than Naomi Shihab Nye, San Antonio’s beloved local poet and recently crowned Young People’s Poet Laureate, who will be reading from her latest book, The Tiny Journalist. Joining Nye are San Antonian Evan Beaty and San Marcos’ Vanessa Couto Johnson, who recently released her first full-length collection pungent dins concentric. While the event kicks off at 4 p.m., the readings will not commence until 5 p.m., so it’s safe to arrive fashionably late.

Sink, Florida, Sink

Thursdays-Saturdays, 7:30 p.m. and Sundays, 2 p.m. Continues through June 30
The Public Theater of San Antonio 800 W. Ashby Pl., San Antonio Central

Buy Tickets$10-$35


A new play has risen from the depths and washed ashore at The Public Theater. As part of The Public’s Fresh Ink program, Shannon Jarrell-Ivey directs the world premiere of David Kimple’s near-future, semi-apocalyptic drama Sink, Florida, Sink. In the face of a 12th successive hurricane (climate change much?), Violet (Alyx Irene Gonzales), Sebastian (Ivan A. Ortega) and the other remaining residents of coastal hamlet Cocoa Beach must fight to keep their heads above water in more ways than one. While doing everything they can to keep their home afloat, Violet and Sebastian must confront a whole other storm when a mysterious stranger from their past reappears in town. Truly, in Cocoa Beach, it’s not just the hurricane-force winds you have to weather. (210) 733-7258
