You don't have to travel far to find good music. Especially living in the San Marcos/Austin area, this whole "electronic dance music" scene has gained an uproar of popularity. The cool thing about local events is that they are much more personable versus an event like a festival, where they have multiple stage setups and thousands of other people you are in a crowd with. At a local music event, you get a much deeper feel for that one particular artist you are there to see and it’s also cool to get to connect with people who are into the same music that are in your own area. No matter where a music event takes place, if you’re surround by dope beats and good people, then the feelings are all the same.
Started by a Texas State student (and one of my bestfriends) back in November, a new segment called Underground Tuesdays has gained a lot of attention in the San Marcos community, pulling the interests of a unique and vibey crowd. The event is hosted at Kiva Lounge and Bar on the corner of Hopkins St. every Tuesday Night and always brings some crazy talented local DJs to drop some heavy, funky underground electronic beats. Instead of hearing “Panda” by Desiigner, you hear “HMU” by Space Jesus. The crowds are always high-vibed at Kiva, different than you'd find at any other bar, and brings together a lot of talented people.
Underground Tuesday welcomes any local producers/DJs to stop by during open decks from 9-11pm. They also offer great drink specials throughout the entire night: $1 Landsharks, $2 Dos XX, $2 Pickle shots and $4 “drop” shots. Check out their Twitter and Facebook pages to find out more and see who’s headlining at the next UnderGround Tuesday event. There’s no other place on the square that brings you beats like this. Come out next Tuesday and see for yourself!
