Bombasta Plays American Sabor & Flamingo Cantina

One of Rock y Roll Radio's favorite bands, Bombasta, will play at the Museo Alemeda American Sabor Music Fest on July 25, 2009 in San Antonio's Historic Market Square. Rock y Roll Radio traveled to San Antonio on June 20th to check out the Music Fest and really had a great time. I got to see Austin's Brownout play at one of the stages. Brownout always puts on a great musical show and always gets people to move or dance. If you haven't been to San Antonio's Market Square, you have to make it a point to visit the Square. There are resturants and food booths, small shops that sell all varieties of Mexican curios and articles in air conditioned facilities or just sit in the Square and enjoy the ambiance. And don't forget to vist the Museo Alemeda "American Sabor" exhibit.

"American Sabor: Latinos in U.S. Popular Music" is the first interpretive museum exhibition to tell the story of the profound influence and impact of Latinos in American popular music. The exhibition focuses on five major centers of Latino popular music production in the post-World War II United States-New York City, Los Angeles, Miami, San Antonio and San Francisco-which represent the diversity of Latino music.

The Music Fest is Free. There are 12 acts and three stages. Hours are 2:00-11:00 PM. Parking is available around the Market Square for a nominal fee. Parking across the Square was $5.00, which is average price. Although the weather was warm, there is ample shady spots to sit and cool off.

If you can't go to San Antonio for American Sabor on July 25th, catch Bombasta on August 8th at the Flamingo Cantina in Austin, Texas.
