How can I find out what LOCAL bands are playing near me?

I live in San Antonio, Texas and I want to start going to more shows to meet more people in the music scene and find more people to start a band with. My parents suggested going to see local bands with friends. How can I find out what local bands are playing near me?

Posters in coffee shops or at your schools' or town's bulletin boards is your best bet, as suggested.

Locally and otherwise globally unknown bands don't even have enough followers on facebook to advertise there so they'd just post a couple of prints over town.

I often see local acts by just going out to a bar/pub that has live music on.

Follow local venues on Facebook & Twitter - most places use those sites to promote what's going on.

Can't find local live music in San Antonio? FFS!
The man who holds to a belief because of tradition, or hides it because he fears he may be shown to be wrong, does not love the truth but manifests a coward’s faithfulness to his prejudices.
