After presenting his annual Austin Corn Lovers Fiesta music fest virtually last year, Jeff Smith — head honcho of San Antonio's Saustex Records — is taking the entire chaotic affair back to the meat world.

The Fiesta's 12th installment will take place Saturday, October 2, at Austin venue the Sagebrush and feature 17 bands. A half dozen of those, including Smith's own long-running cowpunk band Hickoids, boast Alamo City ties.

In addition to Hickoids, who will get an assist from guest vocalist from Frontier Dan, the SA-centric portion of the lineup includes alt-country space cadet Garrett T. Capps & NASA Country, storied garage rockers the Krayolas, LGBTQ rapper Chris Conde, darkly humorous piano rocker Harvey McLaughlin and doom-metal riff slingers Witchcryer.

Most of the action will take place outdoors, but will shift inside the building around 10:30 p.m., when the city's sound curfew kicks in. Advance tickets are available at Saustex's Bandcamp page, and Saustex even set up a Spotify playlist for sonic rubberneckers to check out the bands.

$15, 2 p.m., Saturday, October 2, Sagebrush, 5500 S. Congress Ave., Austin, (512) 867-5309,
