Push Pens to beat-box San Anto truths 

For a solid dose of hip-hop theater (words — fast words — are involved), catch the Yawn Dawgz’s alter egos as they bare all beneath heavy beats at Jump-Start this weekend. Opening Thursday night, three San Anto natives explore topics like family violence, alcohol abuse, sexism, and homo- and trans-phobia in a genre-bending “Last Call for Truth”: a hip (h)opera mixing spoken word, hip-hop, and live theater. Supported opening night by DJ Tech-neek. $15 general, $12 students and seniors (group rate available); 8pm Thu – Sat, April 21-23, 28-30; Jump-Start Performance Co., 108 Blue Star, (210) 227-5867,
