Nothing More

It’s not everyday a band from San Antonio shows up on Billboard and iTunes charts. Let alone at high positions on them. But upon the release of their latest effort The Stories We Tell Ourselves (released back in September) San Antonio rockers Nothing More found themselves on some peak positions including No. 5 on the Billboard Top Current Albums Chart Debut, No. 2 on the Billboard Independent Album Debut, and No. 3 on iTunes' Album Debut to name a few. But it’s not all just good publicity and high-quality production on their albums; the four-piece have been putting in work since 2003 – paying their dues on the local San Antonio live music circuit playing places like Jack’s and The White Rabbit (now Paper Tiger), and touring extensively (new bands take heed). And what also stands out to us for these hometown heroes is that, while they may be be procuring national radio airplay (alongside Foo Fighters and Theory of a Deadman), the level of musicianship and dynamic songwriting is undeniable. Especially on this last album (The Stories We Tell Ourselves), drummer Ben Anderson, guitarist Mark Vollelunga, vocalist/percussionist Jonny Hawkins and bassist Daniel Oliver showcase their ability to write contemporary rock ‘n’ roll that’s heavy and heartfelt without sounding corny – a pit many an “active rock” band fall into. The Stories We Tell Ourselves blends technicality, thought-provoking lyrics, and enough pop aesthetic to sound approachable to the casual rock listener all while satiating the ears of folks who fancy the harder end of the music spectrum. To put it simply: it's a dope record, and we're not just saying that 'cause they're from here.

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.
