[5/4] Preview: Cinco de Mayo pre-party at Lambert’s

If you are looking for quality Latin music this weekend in a more intimate setting than the big block parties and megafests, two of the best Austin-based female musicians are celebrating Cinco de Mayo weekend at Lambert’s on Saturday, May 4. Trust us, this bill will not disappoint.

Showcase opener Patricia Vonne is a longtime Austin favorite. The singer-songwriter and actress is the sibling to famous director Robert Rodriguez. While that may a point of interest of fun fact, Vonne stands on her own as a stellar performer. The bilingual Latin-roots rocker not only sings and plays guitar, but is also one of the meanest castanet players around. Vonne performs at 10 p.m.

Bilingual singer-songwriter Gina Chavez follows at 11:15 p.m. Chavez was recently voted “Best Latin Traditional” at the 2012-2013 Austin Music Awards. Currently preparing for a set at Pachanga Fest and her new album up.rooted due out this fall, Chavez is setting herself up for another career year.

Latin at Heart frontman Billy Wilson closes the show at 12:30 a.m. Lambert’s is located at 401 West 2nd Street. Doors open at 9:30 p.m. 21+ are welcome. Advance tickets are available for this show here. Tickets will be $10 at the door. Parking is available at City Hall & the AMLI building.
