When: Fri., May 26, 7 p.m. 2017
Vapure, a hookah lounge and yet another bright spot in San Antonio’s (happily) flourishing DIY music venue landscape, is hosting a swell show that includes travelling acts Jake Dromgoole and Aztec, and newcomer on the local scene Sky Ark. The fourth act on the bill, however, is the one that we are most excited to catch: Saturn Skies. The SA duo, comprised of Darian Thomas (also of Femina-X, The Foreign Arm) and Robert Wilson, was formed when both members were music students at the University of the Incarnate Word. In March, Saturn Skies released its dynamic and eclectic debut album Magenta. The duo’s sound, which should be quite interesting to catch live, is avant-garde pop meets oddball r&b meets an off-kilter take on experimental electronic music. The result is music that is light on limber legs yet labyrinthine, music that seems to reveal itself anew each time you return to it. Check out the album at saturnskiesart.bandcamp.com.
