• At 8 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 9, singer-songwriter Gina Chavez will take the stage of the theater. A 12-time Austin Music Award winner and the 2019 Female Vocalist of the Year, Chavez has also performed on NPR's Tiny Desk concert series. With her five-piece band, her music explores the meaning of "Americana" and her Latin roots, and her bilingual songwriting combines cumbia, rumba, soul and more, according to a news release. She most recently released the EP "Lightbeam," a collection of songs about the hardships she and her wife have undergone in order to publicly express their love for each other as Catholic and Latinx women. Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 at the door and $10 for student rush.
