Local Music Week Highlights

When: Sun., May 17, 3-8 p.m. and Tue., May 19, 9 p.m. 2015

Created in 2010 as a nod to Local Media Month in April, SA’s Local Music Week, engineered chiefly by SATX Music and Local 782, is essentially a week-long call to get your butt out and listen local. On Sunday, the Hot Dog Social (3-8 p.m.) at Hi-Tones kicks off the communal festivities and encourages connections between musicians, promoters, music journalists and fans. As for the rest of the scatter-shot event, your best bet is to check out the website listed below for a plethora of LMW options. One show we are especially excited about, if only for its sheer diversity, finds Pink Leche, Ila Minori and Collective Dreams at Hi-Tones on Tuesday at 9 p.m.
