Tonight is the next installment of the East Side Latin (ESL) Jam session at The Sahara Lounge. Curated by Austin-based musician and Latino singer-songwriter Kiko Villamizar, the biweekly event is an open forum for musicians and artists to “jam” Latino estyle together and express themselves, even through poetry. No Latin-based genre is discriminated against.

The Sahara Lounge is located at 1413 Webberville Rd. Doors open at 9 p.m. $5 cover. 21+ welcome. The $5 cover helps organizers sustain the jam session while covering the cost of a buffet that includes a vegan version of the Colombian food Villamizar cooks up himself.
