Melvins

The Buzz Osbourne-led Melvins are so damn prolific, from the studio and to the road, that it’s easy to forget — even if you’re a longtime fan — that the band is now in its fourth decade. Hell, this year alone Melvins has dropped four new releases and re-issued several classics. The band’s eclectic early output, all falling in the unclassifiable-weird-hard rock category, was important in the development of the sludge and grunge genres — Kurt Cobain, for example, loved ’em. And, to this day, Osbourne and company continue to push the punk genre out of its comfort zone. As a live act, Melvins are consummate professionals who deliver the kind of mad and thoroughly engaged performance that the term “face-melting” was invented to describe. Whether or not you already count yourself as a fan, this show should be considered core curriculum for rock enthusiasts.

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.
