SATURDAY 9/14. 8 p.m. The Rail Yard. $30.
If your life is going swimmingly enough that you’re in no need of magic imparted by an impish Catholic lesbian from Austin crooning bilingual strains, good on you. As for the rest of us, Gina Chavez’ set at The Rail Yard will undoubtedly serve as both balm and delight. Chavez has won 10 Austin Music Awards and she’s used that platform to start up a college fund for Spanish-speaking girls in a gang-dominated suburb in El Salvador, an experience she wrote about in her 2014 anthem “Siete-D.” This performance is part of the ACANSA Arts Festival of the South; see the full lineup here.
