The Dead Milkmen

If you listen to punk rock, and have been living here long enough to know how special the original Taco Land really was, you know how important and awesome and exciting this show is. If you’re new to Taco Land’s history though, The Dead Milkmen is a band from the ’80s who have made lasting contributions to the punk rock and indie rock world. They even wrote a song about the amazing San Antonio local punk rock venue, Taco Land (not the new one – I still haven’t gone to it because I still have feelings about gentrification), owned by the late Ram Ayala who was murdered outside of the bar in July of 2005. Anyway, they’re coming back to San Antonio and everyone should go because, punk rock and San Antonio go hand in hand. Also on the bill are bands that were important to shaping the scene during the days of Taco Land: proto-punkers White Heat, rock ‘n’ rollers Sons of Hercules, and cow-punk boys The Hickoids. For a blast from San Antonio’s past, this is a show you need to be at.

The White Rabbit
Look, most San Antonio music fans have no complaints with the Paper Tiger, a club that consistently brings tons of great touring acts to town. Even so, some who cut their teeth on the St. Mary's Strip still have fond memories of the White Rabbit, the venue that previously occupied the building. It's understandable that folks of a certain age, whether they played the older club or just caught shows there, would have some nostalgia tied up in the Rabbit.

Sinya on Lone Man Creek in Wimberley
“Absolutely perfect weekend getaway! We were worried that it might be too hot inside the tent, as both my husband and I love our room cold, but it was perfect around 70 degrees…especially in the summer. Bed was very comfortable and you could just sink in and sleep. I slept so deeply. It is a beautiful, serene place to stay and I could not recommend it more!” - Yelper Larissa I
