People of color, LGBTQ+ people and women are enjoying a higher profile in San Antonio’s punk scene thanks in part to the local collective Xingonas in the Pit. As part of that effort, the group — self-described as a de-colonial, feminist punk collective — is throwing its second annual Black and Brown Punk Texas Festival.

The lineup — all bands featuring people of color — includes Dregs, Fantástico, Canción Cannibal Cabaret, Majority Bones, Ojos htx, V3CO, Dirt Pile, Mercutio and the Constantines, Anywhere Welcomes You, Kerry Melonson, Sacred Games and Black Mercy, among others.

$5-$10 (sliding scale), Saturday, Aug. 31, 5 p.m., La Botanica, 2911 N. St Mary’s St., (210) 716-0702,
