On Wednesday, August 3rd, SA local music news source Sobre Sound released a new video produced in collaboration with 9001 Studios. The video features entertaining interviews with bands and audience members alike who have greatly contributed to the many subcultures of music and art in San Antonio and the greater part of Central Texas. Artists, fans, and event organizing-staff from local venues who have all made waves of influence appear in exclusive interviews, portraying the rapidly expanding independent music network in San Antonio.
Interviewees include Don and Ezra Hurd of Imagine Books and Records, members of psychobilly and punk bands No Way Jose, Sonic Ammunition, Los Tejanos Muertos, artists Amea, Dot O, Julian from psych rock quartet ION, Ernest Gonzales of SUB.CULTURE. The soundtrack features tracks from No Way Jose, Lonely Horse, and our very own Arkeologist.
Making connections in today’s world is as simple as using Facebook and other social media platforms where local music can be heard, appreciated, and spread far and wide. This has led to a surge in dedication, passion, and innovation within the attitude of our community. Local Music Week expresses the movement through the appreciation and support of fans, and a wide selection of shows to attend. The live performance is an art form that will never go away, and it allows us to watch and listen to the future of sound grow before our eyes.
