La Santa Cecilia

La Santa Cecilia loves San Antonio. To be sure, I have no concrete evidence to support this statement, but consider the fact that the Grammy-award winning, banda panmericana has played here frequently amid its rapid rise to stardom (at least in the Western hemisphere). What’s more, the kinetic and consistently life-affirming outfit, which is actually from Los Angeles, shares San Anto’s multicultural makeup, presenting, over the course of six albums in eight years, a radical mish-mash of culture in sonic form: from cumbia to rockabilly, from bossa nova to bolero, from Mexican folk to Mariachi, from rock and blues to Rancheras and jazz. And, that’s not all: the six-piece has decided to play Paper Tiger on the date of the release of its new visual album Amar y Vivir, which, recorded live over a wild five days, finds the group on location in Mexico City, dancing, singing, and playing through, and deep into, the heart of the city. To what do we owe this devotion? No me importa. Let’s just make sure we show up to say thanks.

Coordinate your Halloween costumes with your bestie/S.O.
Halloween costumes aren’t just for kids expecting bucketfuls of candy, and coordinating your spooky digs with your partner, your platonic ride-or-die, or even a group of couples is a great way to get creative for the holiday. Whether you want your costume theme to lean a little spooky (Joker and Harley Quinn, Jason and Freddy, a horde of zombies!) or classic (peanut butter and jelly, Daphne and Velma, Dorothy and her Wizard of Oz posse), there is power in numbers, and you are sure to dominate any local costume contest if you get crafty with it.
