Don’t feel like fighting the rain this weekend? Here are some indoor music and arts events to stay dry and still get your ostentatious on.
Performed by the San Antonio Symphony and a “full rock band and screaming vocals,” this production features creator and arranger Bret Havens reimagining all of your favorite hippied-out hits including “Stairway to Heaven,” “Kashmir” and “Whole Lotta Love.” If you are a lover of various genres of music, smushing them together and calling it an evening, venture out to this Saturday night performance. It is a perfect date night for the elders who grew up listening to the legends or you young artsy couples not hipster enough to deny that you still love you some Zeppelin.

One of the most prolific independent rappers of all time, MURS has been called “...subtly smart instead of look-at-me clever, cocky enough to stand his ground but humble enough to admit his faults and frustrations, expressing himself with an eccentric persona that has no time for thuggish swagger or conspicuous consumption,” by Pitchfork. The L.A. underground mastermind has a vibe akin to Atmosphere and the storytelling skills of Aesop Rock. The relatability he brings to every track is refreshing amongst the masculine-fueled rhymes and badass demeanor of the mainstream hip-hop community. Released in May of this year, MURS’ latest album is heavily biographical and honest, which should make for a memorable and emotionally involved performance.

You know the drill: Dream City Beneath has once again been cancelled/postponed due to rain. The guest DJ for the quarterly downtown outdoor dance party won't be stopping by San Antonio without throwing down the jams though. SPF666 will be performing alongside the Ghostpizza crew at Phantom Room on St. Mary's. For only $3 this could be the most bang for your buck tonight as many events around town have been cancelled.
Saturday, October 24 at 9:00 p.m. at The Phantom Room.
