Top: Andrea Moutria and Anna Garcia. Bottom: Rebar's dance floor gets bumping.


Rebar is situated on the 410 strip of Broadway, where the neon lights beckon to night owls looking to down a drink or test out a pick-up line on a Saturday night. Last weekend, the watering hole played host to the fourth anniversary of Official First Saturday (OFS), a party originating with visual artist G. Tomas V. that is all about "original local music, artwork, and involving the community."

While things began quietly inside the red-lit venue punctuated by television glare, DJ Cee Jay brought the ladies to the dancefloor with Beyonce's "Single Ladies." While it makes for occasional navigation hazards, the ladies demand attention here. Unfortunately, only three artists turned out for the advertised art show on the bar's spacious outdoor patio: the standout being Seguin artist Aesop demonstrating a deft touch with florescent colors.

Musical acts in the back room ranged from solo-acoustic act Marty Lat, to cover band Wasteland, to obnoxious punk rebels Without Profit, to the Sublime-sounding Sons of Sancho. Watch for OFS to return in March, when audience-searching Tomas V. relocates to Moses Rose's downtown.
