San Marcos Tonight 10/26/13

A daily rundown of live entertainment in and around San Marcos tonight, compiled by Mercury Scene Editor Hap Mansfield and our content partners at San Marcos Tonight.


Tonight’s Best Bet

It was homecoming week at Texas State culminating in tonight’s game against South Alabama at Bobcat Stadium at 6 p.m.  In addition to homecoming madness is a variety of fun stuff for the kids today with trick-or-treating at the Kyle Flea Market from 11 a.m.-1 p.m.,  Halloween Fest at Wake the Dead Coffee House from noon to 4 p.m. and last, but certainly not least, the yearly Farmer Fred’s Fall Harvest Carnival at City Park from 6-9 p.m.  For more adult fare tonight, the inimitable and award-winning Chasca (pictured) take the stage at the Triple Crown. They have a brand new CD hot off the presses (or whatever it is CDs are made on), “bedtime for bedlamites”, that is chock (or maybe shock) full of Chasca’s creative and original material. The pre-Halloween show should be a blast. They are joined by a trio of popular local bands: The Organics, The Couch, The Avocados. The mayhem starts up around 9 p.m. Inhibitions will be shed tonight.
