Steve Aoki

In an era when handsomely paid EDM acts often appear to be doing little more than pushing buttons and tinkering with dials onstage, Steve Aoki spins the “superstar DJ” role into a hyperactive art form that involves spewing Champagne, throwing cakes and crowd-surfing aboard an inflatable raft. With musical roots in Southern California’s punk scene, Aoki (one of late Olympic wrestler and Benihana founder Rocky Aoki’s six children) launched the indie record label Dim Mak while still in college and steadily evolved from party DJ to the producer, songwriter and recording artist behind 2012’s Grammy-nominated rager Wonderland. The recently married party animal returns to the Alamo City (one of approximately 300 annual gigs) in support of Neon Future, a double album packed with collaborations — from Linkin Park to will.i.am. — and surprisingly bookended by spoken-word interludes from inventor/author/futurist Ray Kurzweil and controversial biomedical gerontologist Aubrey de Grey.

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.
