Heavy Glow

Heavy Glow is a Texas band that ostensibly got its start in San Diego but whose sound was forged in the workaday Midwest, where lead guitarist, vocalist and main creative force Jared Mullins grew up surrounded by the churning and pining sounds of blues, soul and classic psychedelic rock. Equal parts chunky, junky and funky, the band’s sound grew in leaps and bounds from 2011’s Midnight Moan to 2014’s Pearls & Swine and Everything Fine, trading in a Motor City, garage/cock-rock aesthetic for a slightly silkier, cleaner and even more soulful approach. A good approximation of Heavy Glow’s style in general is Cream meets Queens of the Stone Age. Lava lamp lasciviousness pervades these sweaty, blues-infused, alt-psych jams, which are as beefy as they are soulful. Here’s another way to look at it: Heavy Glow’s sound, crafted largely by frontman Mullins, is the musical equivalent of your favorite 1960s muscle car with an engine that was fully updated in 2001.

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.
