The historic Empire Theatre, the oldest venue (1914) in San Antonio, will serve as the gilded, glowing backdrop for what promises to be one of the most interesting shows of the fall, perhaps of all year, maybe of all time.
This night Buttercup, one of San Antonio’s most prolific and magnanimous bands, releases a new single for an upcoming record Sergeant Sad (2016 release). The track, “Forsaken”, produced by Danny Reisch, experiments with rock and roll minimalism. The darkly humorous tune features happy Beach Boys-esque vocal stylings. The sprightly melody and sunny arrangement juxtapose the lamenting lyric that struggles with hospitals, sickness and grief. Every ticket purchase includes a free download of “Forsaken”.
The stage will be dressed with mid-century period pieces provided by Period Modern, San Antonio’s premier boutique furniture store. The band will use this vintage backdrop (well suited
to the storied frame of the Empire) for some high drama within their set. Period Modern is one of several area business sponsors for the event.
Alyson Alonzo, an up-and-coming R&B styled crooner whose incredible voice is causing a buzz all across Texas, opens the show. Her trance-inducing performance at the recent YOSA Radiohead tribute is the talk of the town. After her set, she will join Buttercup for a special duet.keep looking »
