February's just started, but we've got a feeling it's going to be a good one. The San Antonio music scene is promising a lot of great shows this month, so how does one pick? We've rounded up five shows you should mark on your calendar ASAP.
Levees play a cool indie-blues-rock mix that feels both standard and new at the same time. This local band just released a new album, Another Medicine, in November 2016, so even if you've seen them before, their February show is worth checking out. Stop by the 502 bar this Saturday if you're looking for some local indie-rock.
Ghost Police describes themselves as a surfy hardcore noise punk band and their sound reflects that mix of influences. This four-man San Antonio band is not one to miss--especially because this is going to be their last show. If you feel like some good old noise punk (and mourning a final gig), Ghost Police has you covered.
This all-girl band is bringing their music and cheeky attitude to the Korova this month. This band formed first as a hobby, so their show should bring a fun energy to your weekend. Their music alternates from classic indie rock to some punk tones, with strong vocals, guitar, and bass throughout. Check out this show if you’re looking for some indie rock girl power.
Since their “Cannibal Queen” days, Miniature Tiger has continued to move in the pop-indie direction. Their sound can lean towards being sugary, but their songs are fun and upbeat, which should make for a good night. If you’re looking wanting more indie pop/synthpop in your life, this show is for you.
This California band will be touching down in San Antonio later this month. Their 2016 album, City Club, is definitely working with a new sound. The album was produced by Julian Casablancas and just might herald a new direction for the band. But even while they mix things up, they're still the indie standard we love. Stop by Paper Tiger on February 24 to hear some new attitudes from your old favorite.
