South Texas Legion — a supergroup comprised of members of storied South-Central Texas metal acts including S.A. Slayer, Karion, Watchtower, Juggernaut and Militia — is playing a local sendoff before making its overseas debut at Germany’s Keep It True festival.

If you’re familiar with our city’s history as the “Heavy Metal Capital of the World” during the ’80s, STL’s members are the folks who helped put that scene on the worldwide map. And the bands they led still command a cult following as far away as Europe, which explains the upcoming festival appearance.

Get there by 10 p.m. for a pre-show “fireside chat” featuring key shakers from the Alamo City’s Golden Age of Metal.

$10-$15, 10pm Sat April 13, Limelight, 2718 N. St. Mary’s St., (210) 735-7775,
