No News is Bad News. Join the SA Current Press Club.


The major news on the SA club scene this week is the debut of Scout Bar, a large, multi-venue club based on the successful brand established in Houston. Located on the North Side (19314 U.S. Highway 281 North), Scout Bar will host national and local rock bands while simultaneously featuring a DJ room for dance music.

While not married to any one musical style, Scout Bar tends to cater to hard-rock listeners, as demonstrated by the club’s hosting of the Cage Rattle-sponsored “Most Wanted Tour” and the Thursday, May 15, show featuring Mindless Self Indulgence. Upcoming gigs at the bar range from the ultra-sensitive, radio-ready rock of Lifehouse to the busman’s-holiday-Americana of Billy Bob Thornton.

Another area venue to emerge recently is Josabi’s, a Helotes club established by Jack’s Patio Bar co-owner John Jansky. The venue’s rootsy focus will be on display this weekend with an “outlaw show” on Friday, May 17, and a “rock show” the following night. The “outlaw show” will feature Trainwreck, Skunkweed, South Texas Destroyers, and the Mark McKinney Band, while the “rock show” includes Last Of Our Kind, Vallejo, and a host of others. Both shows will be at Josabi Theatre (17200 Highway 16 North).
