Do210 is teaming up with Miller Lite for a Friday-night takeover of the Guadalupe Theater at Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center (1301 Guadalupe) on Friday, August 21, 2015, to celebrate community, music, art, food and drink.
Three standout Texas bands will come together for an eclectic, Latin-alternative soundscape. Drinks will be provided by Miller Lite, and vegan eatery La Botanica–which opened its doors on the St. Mary’s Strip earlier this year–will be serving complementary appetizers. The event will also feature Black Moon Print live screen-printing the limited-edition event poster by San Antonio-artist Tattooedboy, created to commemorate the special night. Live projections by Vexyl AudioVisual.
Tex-Mex punk group Piñata Protest (Saustex/Cosmica Records) is a hometown favorite, playing accordion-fueled “punk rock like abuela used to make.” The 4-piece never fails to get an audience fired up with a unique Norteño-meets-punk style. Fans are known to sing, dance, and even crowd-surf to their favorite Piñata songs, as well as unique covers of classic corridos like “La Cucaracha.”
Austin’s Money Chicha (Alphabet Records) incorporates the psychedelic sounds of guitars, fuzz, and reverb with heavy percussion, cumbia rhythms, and the melodies of Colombia and Peru. The band’s psychedelic Latin grooves are an homage to the musical and cultural movement of the 60s and 70s known as “chicha.”
Cumbia-thrash trio Grupo Frackaso (Poorcore Records; members of American Swine) has been wowing audiences since August 2014 with their unique Latin style. Heavy, danceable, and tinged with electronic effects, Frackaso’s music is sure to get you out of your seat and onto the dance floor.
Do210 is a citywide events-discovery platform that launched in August 2014 as the San Antonio-branch of the DoStuff Network, helping people find out about cool events in cities across North America.
