An Evening with Kevin Costner & Modern West

Yes, that Kevin Costner. Among his two Oscars and three Golden Globes sitting on the shelf at home, the actor has a few guitars lying around, pulling them out for sporadic tours with his band, Modern West. According to his online artist statement, Costner was inspired by the live connection between a band and its audience, starting Modern West in 2007 to “connect with people in a more meaningful way than just the autograph. I always thought that music could build a stronger, more personal moment for me. It would create the opportunity for a genuine exchange much greater than the movie, TV interview or magazine.” Modern West’s best effort yet was Famous for Killing Each Other, an album inspired by and featuring soundtrack cuts from the 2012 History Channel miniseries of the same name. On it, Costner sings with honest emotion and knowledge of his range and limits. Thankfully, it’s a deeply motivated passion project, not one OK’d by knock-kneed yes men looking for money or cocaine (looking at you 1985 Eddie Murphy). Tickets are sold out, though scalpers wait with greasy palms on StubHub.

Chicken-on-a-Stick
Fiesta favorite chicken-on-a-stick is basically the supreme food booth snack from all of Fiesta. San Antonians look forward to eating it all year, and usually commemorate their first chicken-on-a-stick of the season with a selfie. It’s inspired chicken-on-a-stick necklaces, earrings, stickers and more from local designers, and has appeared on menus across SA so folks can get their fix. Thank goodness for that.
