210 Local Media owner Mario Zamarron started his company as a podcast in 2013 for the purpose of discovering local and original music. Since then, he has expanded his scope and has had the honor of interviewing numerous artists, musicians, filmmakers, and other entertainers in the greater San Antonio area. The podcast has also featured music from over 80 local bands and musicians, and has covered indie, alternative, hard rock, punk, country, metal, rap, R&B, electronic, Christian rock, and instrumental music in over 60 episodes. They’ve been able to share San Antonio with listeners in over 100 countries and have been downloaded over 13,000 times. Recently (under 210 Local Music), they’ve made the jump into managing two San Antonio artists, alternative rock band Slowlikefire and metal band, The Akuzma.
Slowlikefire was born out of now defunct mainstay bands in the San Antonio music scene. The band started in February 2013 and by August of that same year they released their debut “Thieves by Nature” with the riveting “My Name is Billie Jean Davy” quickly gaining airplay on 99.5 KISS and internet radio. Their sound is a mix of everything they love about music. They’ve been compared to The Cure, Incubus, Coheed and Cambria, and Thursday but the sound is all their own. Slowlikefire has opened for Glassjaw, Stolas, Hail the Sun, A Lot Like Birds and played River City Rockfest 2014 along with Deftones, Kid Rock, and Nothing More. In May 2015, Slowlikefire released its full length “City of Echoes,” under DKD Records (El Paso).
Formed in San Antonio in fall of 2011, The Akuzma is a mixture of sound ideas under the banner of metal and electronic music. Blending genres from Industrial, Rock, metal, electro, Goth, trance, EBM and more, The Akuzma writes what they feel straight from the heart. Its members all come from various industrial-metal bands around San Antonio that have played shows and worked together before. They have released two EPs and one single and have shared the stage with such national acts as: Static-x, Orgy, Mushroomhead, Wayne Static, One Eyed Doll, Murder FM, and countless, amazing local Texas acts.
This month, on October 16th, 210 Local Music will be hosting its first all locals, metal showcase at Zombies Bar on 4202 Thousand Oaks Drive. This is a 21+ show with a $5 cover and brings some of San Antonio’s best metal bands together in one night, Pedagogic, Pigweed, Aurorean, and The Akuzma.
