Austin Vida is doing it big this summer with a monthly residency at Frontier Bar, the newest Eastside hot spot. We are presenting three summer showcases at Frontier Bar featuring the “barrio big band” from San Antonio, Bombasta. The first one happens this Saturday, June 30.
Co-headlining Saturday’s showcase will be Austin indie-psych band Ex Machina. Their music blends elements of psychedelic rock, reggae, progressive and indie. With their recent addition of a keyboard player, their live sound if much fuller than their early recordings we first heard. Fronted by the often masked Blas Moreno, the group is a name Austin music fans will be familiar with soon. Ex Machina perform at 11 p.m.
No stranger to Austin, our headliner Bombasta is San Antonio’s answer to bands like Ozomatli, Locos Por Juana or El Gran Silencio. Their music is a fusion of hip hop, reggae, funk and traditional Latin rhythms. Their socially conscious lyrics represent their hometown vibe that can be appreciated by all. The best part is you can dance to all of it and they put on one of the best live shows we’ve experienced. Bombasta perform at midnight.
Austin-based rock en Español band 2Rock opens the showcase. Frontier Bar is located at 2421 Webberville Rd. Doors open at 9 p.m. 21+ are welcome. $5 cover.
