Music Award Winners: If you plan to be in town on Thursday, April 5, you (or someone in your band) should hit Nightrocker (605 San Pedro). That's when the Current will give the awards to the bands and artists selected by readers in last week's San Antonio Music Awards.

In addition to the usual recognitions, each artist or band member will receive a VIP pass (good for two) for our Best of San Antonio Party to be held at Sunset Station on Friday, April 27. But first things first: At 11 p.m. Thursday, we'll pay tribute to all the award winners (a list of which we published last week available at Before and after there'll be music and comedy. It all starts with stand-up comedy at 10 p.m., followed by Best Electronic Band winner Trip The Light at 10:30 p.m., SA Music Awards at 11 p.m., Most Underrated Band winner The Rich Hands at 11:30 p.m., Best Indie Rock Band winner Pop Pistol at 12:15 a.m., and more stand-up comedy from 1:30 a.m. to 2 a.m. The night is open to all ages and minors only pay $5 (free for the rest). See you all there.

Meanwhile, the Third Root album roll-out continues...

For the last two months we've been offering free, exclusive downloads of singles by Third Root, the collaboration of MoJoe's Easy Lee and Mexican Stepgrandfather's Marco Cervantes. This time we'll do it a little differently, with the exclusive video premiere of "Pinot Noir" (found on the online version of this column at The song was produced by DJ Ninja and features Karl "KC" Centeno on trumpet and T.R.E.E. (MoJoe) on keyboards.

"We named the song 'Pinot Noir' because we believe this project and album will age well," Easy Lee told the Current. "Third Root is a refined approach to the conversation of black and brown history and relations. [Video director] Francisco Cortés' behind-the-scenes-style video is an accurate visual introduction of what Third Root is all about."

Third Root's Stand for Something album will be digitally released on June 19, and the July 7 physical CD release party at Jump Start will feature a Q&A session and the duo's first-ever public performance. Can't wait.
