Pepper, The Movement, New Beat Fund
Are you one of the many people who find themselves wishing that Texas had passed similar legislation to Oregon last week? Take solace. Thursday’s reggae-rock, g-punk bash at the Aztec should suffice to at least make you feel like you’re living in the land of the legally stoned. The headlining band Pepper started out in the late ’90s and rose to relative popularity by sounding a whole lot like Sublime at a time when people were still into that sort of thing. Meanwhile, New Beat Fund and The Movement each put their own spin on that whole Americanized reggae-punk thing. $23-$40, 7pm, The Aztec Theatre, 104 N St. Mary’s, (210) 812-4355, theaztectheatre.com.
