An all-woman chingona of a concert will be held at Sam’s Burger Joint featuring badasses Nina Diaz, Femina-X, and Louisiana artist Merci Raines. This will be the first time Nina and Femina-X share a stage, promising a serious evening of music, bringing 2017 to a close.

“I’m looking forward to playing. Playing for the people and singing,” Diaz told the Current. “We’ll be playing material from our latest album The Beat Is Dead. I’ll also be playing with my husband [drummer Jorge Gonzalez] as his wife for the first time!”



Over the last couple of years, Femina-X have made their way to the top of the local art rock scene and will be hitting the stage in full regalia. Rounding out the evening, Merci Raines released her debut self-titled EP earlier this year featuring a unique brand of Southern big-beat (a la pop) soul.

$12-$50, Friday, December 1, 8pm, Sam’s Burger Joint, 330 E. Grayson St., (210) 223-2830, samsburgerjoint.com. – JJ Lopez
