Join #fridafridayatx for a special Small Business Saturday Pop Up at Austin Film Society. In honor of our namesake we are proud to encourage you to attend this amazing film and celebrate the complex life of PODEROSA, and queer icon, Chavela Vargas.
Come shop local, and support ATX’s only WOC-centered monthly mercado. Like Chavela, we understand the struggle, joys and commitment it takes to be a WOC artist. We welcome you to shop a magical mini-makers market and music by Chulita Vinyl Club from 8:30-9:50.
After the mini-mercado join us at 9:50 for a special collective viewing of this amazing film.

Centered around never before-seen interview footage of Chavela shot 20 years before her death in 2012, and guided by the stories in Chavela’s songs, and the myths and tales others have told about her – as well as those she spread about herself – the film weaves an arresting portrait of a woman who dared to dress, speak, sing, and dream her unique life into being.” This special #fridafridayatx Small Business Saturday event is made possible by the hospitality of Austin Film Society and music is provided by the amazing Chulita Vinyl Club crew.
See you soon, ATX!
