And now for a band that's really putting San Antonio on the map — the Cartographers. Anybody? Come on, don't tell me none of you paid attention in geography class. There goes my Amerigo Vespucci gag, too. See a cartographer is one who … screw it.
We're going to see indie left fielders the Cartographers (not to be confused with this LA-based group) play at Jacks Patio Bar and Grill Friday (2950 Thousand Oaks), September 26. Along with San Marcos rock orchestra Winter Dance Party (not to be confused with this Buddy Holly/Big Bopper tibute band) they'll be opening for local superstars Girl in a Coma (not to be confused with my wife last Thursday night). Tickets for this all-ages show are $10 at the door, or $8 if purchased in advance from frontgatetickets.com.
See you there, and be sure to e-mail me with nominations for future Live & Local subjects, or leave a comment below. Tattooing nominations on a rabid feral cat and tossing them through my bedroom in the dead of night just ain't gonna cut it anymore, people.
