San Antonio is abundant with queens of all types: drama, drag, necia or whatever. The title of fiercest queen, however, should be shared between the ladies of Las Tesoros. Inspired by Tejana singers like Lydia Mendoza and world famous Eva Garza, Las Tesoros challenged racism and sexism throughout their career while opening doors for generations of amazing women singers of color that would follow. With the passing of Janet “Perla Tapatia” Cortez, the tradition of beautiful music continues with trio Rita Viduarri, Beatriz Llamas, and Blanca Rodríguez. $15, 6pm Sat, 3pm Sun, Esperanza Peace And Justice Center, 922 San Pedro Ave., (210) 228-0201, esperanzacenter.org.
