Classic Old School Jam

Jam In 1994, this lineup would have raised stadium roofs to the stratosphere. In 2015, it still guarantees a hip-hop head a golden-era good time. Highlights include Afrika Bambaataa and the Soul Sonic Force, the Afro-centric innovators whose “Planet Rock” helped spin off the entire sub-genre of freestyle. Fucking Melle Mel will be in town, too. As the first emcee of Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, Mel rhymed “The Message,” the first instance of socially-conscious rap and the tune that’s usually listed at the top of any mainstream list of the greatest hip-hop songs of all-time. With a parade of one-hit wonders, including Vanilla Ice, Coolio, Tone Loc, Rob Base, Young MC, Candyman, Newcleus, Melle Mel, Scorpio, Shock G.

When “karaoke” is in the name, you can expect a venue name to have its shit together. This spot is perfect for times you just wanna get drunk and scream into a microphone. Slightly sleazy, the bar is a solid option for hours of uninhibited fun for just about anyone, especially first-timers trying to get their feet wet in the art of karaoke. Expect a crowd — or shall we say audience?

The White Rabbit
Look, most San Antonio music fans have no complaints with the Paper Tiger, a club that consistently brings tons of great touring acts to town. Even so, some who cut their teeth on the St. Mary's Strip still have fond memories of the White Rabbit, the venue that previously occupied the building. It's understandable that folks of a certain age, whether they played the older club or just caught shows there, would have some nostalgia tied up in the Rabbit.
