Music : Sound and the Fury

A week on the scene

Can control

After a lengthy hiatus, Clogged Caps, San Antonio’s Annual International Aerosol Arts Festival, is back for a vibrant, event-packed fifth edition.

This year’s graffiti celebration kicks off on Friday, July 21, with an evening Meet & Greet Gallery Show at Travis 151, with entertainment provided by Houston’s Lower Life Form, Paint By Numbers (fresh off an appearance on 98.5 The Beat), and DJs Tech-neek, Scuba, and Nasty Nix. The signature Mural Sessions begin early morning on July 22 at the Nolan St. Bridge underpass, east of highway 281near downtown, and feature more than 70 of the country’s top graffiti artists. The free sessions will be accompanied by live music from San Anto’s finest DJs in a family-friendly atmosphere.

Clogged Caps 5 will close out with a bash at the Falls (226 W. Bitters at highway 281), featuring Houston’s VZilla and Pitch Brown, Austin’s Galaxy High, and the Alamo City’s own Daggz and Jusdis. Those looking to support the Prhymemates’ musical endeavors after the conclusion of Clogged Caps can pick up new releases from collaborative members DJ Scuba Gooding Sr., Louie Dollars, J. Shah, and Seven-One at Hogwild (1824 N. Main), and 180 Grams (2120 San Pedro). For more information visit

Lucil in the sky

Lederhosen Lucil, everyone’s favorite Canadian new-wave fraulein, is coming back to San Antonio with her friend DJ Jester the Filipino Fist on their (more-or-less) annual “Waltz Across Texas” tour. Lucil and Jester will perform at Limelight (2718 N. St. Mary’s) on Thursday, July 20, along with Reader. Showtime is 10 p.m.

Earlier that day, Lucil will sign copies of her new art book, The Joy of Hosen: Lederhosen Lucil Up Close und Pictorial, at 180 Grams, with the possibility of a brief, in-store performance. The book signing runs from 3-5 p.m.
