Tributes to Amy Winehouse, Dale Watson and more in San Antonio music

It’s Tuesday again, which means it’s time for your weekly music roundup. Read on for the sets to look forward to and the shows taking place this week.

Fans of the late Amy Winehouse can celebrate the singer’s life on the 10th anniversary of her death this Friday, July 23. Part of the infamous “Club 27”, Winehouse has a hold on the hearts of San Antonio music fans, many of whom have held annual tribute parties on the day of his death anniversary. To some, it was her fashion sense, evident through her winged eyeliner and signature beehive hairstyle. Others were drawn to her dark, sad girlish energy, akin to San Antonio’s (old?) Obsession with Morrissey. Ultimately, Winehouse’s soulful melodies and rich vocals are all reasons to appreciate the impact she had in her short life.


The San Antonians will have two opportunities to pay tribute to Winehouse. The Bang Bang Bar welcomes DJs and encourages Amy Winehouse’s costumes on Fridays from 9pm to 2am while Tandem will feature live music, performers and an altar where guests can light a candle from 7pm to 11pm.
