"Terror In Taco Town: SA Punk 1978-1986" 

When: Sun., Aug. 9, 2-6 p.m. 2015
Price: $5-$10
Tex Pop, purveyors of eccentric and eclectic exhibits on the music of South Texas, continues its run of one-of-a-kind series with “Terror in Taco Town.” Riffing on the name of a 1938 B-movie Terror of Tiny Town, the show revisits the halcyon years of punk in San Antonio — 1978 to 1986 — with an exhibit kickoff concert. Gig posters, photos and newspaper articles will largely tell the story of this era in San Antonio music, from the Sex Pistols famed ’78 date in Taco Town (pictured above) to the baby-kissing days of Taco Land to the deep cuts you might only know if you were actually there. That’s the beauty of Tex Pop. Each installation is an opportunity to pick the brains of the curators, getting to know the sights and smells and off-the-record hits from the era at hand. For “Terror in Taco Town,” Jeff Smith of country-punk outfit Hickoids joins as guest curator. With The Next, The Semi Automatics, Screech of Death, Heather Leather, DJ Smarty.
