Going accordionistic

Or acordeonistica, with buttons, for a modest cover charge at Jovita’s on Saturday and for free at the MACC on Sunday. Cerronato, the factor other than the presence of accordions that these events have in common, will take the stage on about 4:30 on Saturday and at about 2:30 the next day.

At Jovita’s the event is Las Chicas del Barrio, a showcase for women in Latin music sponsored by the Austin Latino Music Association. The music starts at 2 or thereabouts and continues until it’s over. On the bill are Girl in a Coma, Bocastria, Frenetica, Cerronato, the Texana Dames (6:00), Eva Yabarra y Su Conjunto (7:30), Melinda Hernandez y Sister Sister, and the Gina Chavez Band, not necessarily in that order (call Jovita’s at 447-7825). Cover will be a mere $10, which will probably amount to about a dollar an hour for this great program.

Sunday at the MACC is brought to us gratis by Texas Folklife. We’ll hear great personal favorite Cerronato backing four future stars of the accordion who are semifinalists in the Big Squeeze, followed by another great personal favorite, Los Texmaniacs.
