3p.m-3:45p.m Johnny Degollado y su Conjunto
4p.m.-4:45p.m. Conjunto Aztlan
5p.m.-5:45p.m. Los Morales Boyz

There will also be a BBQ plate sale and silent auction, and sliding-scale donation at the door.

Long story short: A great event filled with down-home, authentic Conjunto music for an Austin legend at one of the hottest live music venues in town. It starts and ends early, too.

The White Horse is located at 500 Comal in East Austin, a few blocks east of I-35. Sliding-scale donation at the door. 21+ are welcome. Visit the Facebook event page here.
