  • Portland pop-punkers Hemingay
Monday, July 4

Normally, when you hear the words "Hemingway" and "used book store" in the same sentence, you might consider a tattered copy of The Sun Also Rises for a cool $3. But as Imagine Books & Records continues to prove, they're not your average book store. To celebrate the Fourth, the raucous booksellers host a Portland pop-punk outfit named after the celebrated American author. The band's 2014 effort Pretend to Care is a heavy pour of distortion and bittersweet feelings. $5, 8pm, Imagine Books & Records, 8373 Culebra Rd., (210) 236-7668

Las Raices: A Monthly Musical Forum

Allow us to break format here, for this isn't technically a show. For this month's installment of Las Raices — San Antonio Sound Garden's symposium on the state of SA music — the community will discuss how to "remove obstacles to success" and "move forward and grow the SA music economy in the most beneficial and profitable way possible." A jam with all interested parties will follow the discussion. Free, 7pm, San Antonio Sound Garden, 723 N. Alamo St.

Doc Watkins and his Orchestra
Wednesday, July 6

As Brent "Doc" Watkins gears up for the opening of his venue Jazz, Tx, the pianist and organist takes some time out from the business side of things to get down with his big band in a different corner of the Pearl. Watkins and company will kick off the Pearl Stable's Summer Dance Hall series, a beautiful and budget-friendly opportunity to check out this historic building in the Pearl complex. Free, 5:30pm, Pearl Stable, 307 Pearl Pkwy, (210) 212-7260
