I talk about a handful of my favorite performances from a few festivals I worked this year.
One day, four stages, 40+ bands. Burger Hangover Fest is back for its 5th year and once again is bringing some damn good bands to San Antonio. The second part of the line up announced today includes Cheetah Chrome of Dead Boys and southern California's Cherry Glazerr, who's new record Apocalypstick is a MUST-HEAR-NOW album. The lineup also includes a handful of local bands like We Leave At Midnight, Whatever?.
VIP Tickets are now available as well at $69 which will include a shorter bar lines, A/C, complimentary beverages and more.

Call for Bizarre Bazaar Vendors
Maverick Music Festival is seeking vendors to create an alternative, hip shopping experience for attendees of the festival. The concept is an open air market that will run as a part of Maverick Music Festival, San Antonio’s only indie live music alternative. Selected vendors will have space within the festival footprint to sell their goods during the festival.
The market is inspired by outdoor world markets and vendors are encouraged to set up creative displays for their goods rather than using a traditional festival booth set up. We are seeking vendors with goods that will appeal to an indie and rock audience. We are also looking for vendors who will be creative with their setup. Carpets on the ground, tapestries for backdrops, anything that will enhance the world market feel of the area.
Ideal vendors for this area might include:
• Vinyl records
• Vintage clothing
• Creative and handcrafted goods
• Musical instruments
• Concert Posters
• Prints and art vendors
