Doors open: 18:30
Tour name: UP.ROOTED
Austin Music Award winner Gina Chavez presents her new studio album, UP.ROOTED. Produced by Michael Ramos (Patty Griffin, John Mellencamp), UP.ROOTED is a bilingual garden of delights in which Chavez delves into cumbia, bossa nova, vintage pop, and reggaeton.
The Austin American-Statesman calls her "a true Austin music treasure — angelic vocals and a devilish treat on guitar," and, with praise from NPR’s All Songs Considered and Alt. Latino, two tours in Japan as the Official City of Austin Music Ambassador, and acclaim from Southern Living magazine as one of 11 "southern iconic women who have left a beautiful footprint across the South, Chavez has claimed a prominent stake in the Live Music Capital.
For the album release, Chavez presents an all-star female lineup featuring beloved indie-folk songstress Amy Cook and rising star Emily Wolfe for an unforgettable evening benefiting Niña Arriba, a college fund that Chavez co-founded for impoverished young women in El Salvador. It's the perfect way to celebrate love on Valentine's Day weekend.
