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?
Check local venue websites for listings.

Posters in coffee shops and local restaurants, bulletin boards, facebook... you know, things you can't simply Google to find...
