I don’t get mad anymore when artists from the ‘90s and 2000s announce San Antonio dates these days because it happens so often. I’m just like, “Lol, more?”

Next up in this revolving door of throwback musicians is beloved electronic act Crystal Method. Along with the Prodigy, the Chemical Brothers and the like, the Crystal Method helped pioneer the big beat movement – a mix of heavy hip-hop breakbeats and synthesizer-generated loops and patterns that often showed up on soundtracks to blockbuster hits like, you now, The Matrix. The Las Vegas-born duo hits the Paper Tiger Saturday, so bust out those Jncos and Airwalks, fam. This is one for the books.

$21, Sat Dec. 1, 8pm, Paper Tiger, 2410 N. St. Mary’s St., papertigersatx.com.
