Alternative 2 Hunger

When: Fri., Nov. 17, 7 p.m.-1 a.m.

KSYM 90.1 is an alternative radio station that has been run by San Antonio College students since 1966. Consistently billing itself as “Your Only Alternative” to standard commercial radio, the station offers eclectic musical programming focused on a wide variety of genres. This weekend, for the 20th year in a row, KSYM presents its food drive/fundraiser “Alternative 2 Hunger,” which will benefit St. Peter-St. Joseph Children’s Home (St. PJ’s). This year’s party with a purpose will feature local bands St. Dukes (exuberant and intricate indie-pop), True Indigo (gloriously hi-fi psych-rock), SPACE WLVS (alt-rock), Los #3 Dinners (throwback San Anto rock ‘n’ roll), and The Ghost in the Machine (experimental/progressive rock). Note: If you bring a whole turkey, aside from getting mad props for lugging a turkey to The Strip, you can get five people in.

Price: $5 or 5 canned goods
