Queer Qumbia En Tejas Presenta Muy Muy

August 13, 2015 @ 9:00 pm

It’s been far far FAR too long, Austin! So we are celebrating out two year anniversary by dusting off our bestest, queerest most tropical rhythms to give you a summer dance party you won’t soon forget. This benefit for Allgo, Austin’s longest running queer people of color organization will be packed full with art, dance and interactive photo fun to play with when you’re not belting your heart out to Joan Sebastian on the hardwood.

Ha pasado muchísimo tiempo, Austin! Por eso estámos celebrando nuestro aniversario de dos años listxs a tocarles nuestros ritmos mejores y mas tropicales para darles una pachanga de verano que no se van a olvidar. Este evento beneficio para Allgo, la organización mas antigua para la gente queer y de color de Austin, estará relleno con arte, baile y fotografía interactiva para disfrutir cuando no estás cantado a la voz alta las canciónes de Joan Sebastian con tus amigxs.
