Inspired by Chicago’s “Or Does it Explode: Black, Brown & Indigenous Crew,” Oakland’s “The Universe is Lit,” and NYC’s “No Flowers for Yt Powers,” we aim to join the DIY movement geared towards uniting punk artists of color…but in the South!!
We need YOUR help to make this happen!
- Because we have several talented performers traveling to San Antonio, 100% of the fundraising (including admission from the door) will cover the travel & performing fees of all of our musicians, our photographer, and our flyer artist.
- One of the goals of "Black and Brown Punk Fest TX" is to get artists of color PAID for their work as creators of culture.
-In the spirit of all things DIY, we are not corporate sponsored and rely entirely on the support of our community - we humbly ask you to consider donating. REMEMBER ANY AMOUNT HELPS ($5, $10, $20+) & YOUR CONTRIBUTION WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
So why is “Black and Brown Punk Fest TX” important?
- Because we are tired of hetero hyper-masculine white-centered music scenes that lack safety and inclusivity!
- Because we are not given credit for our contributions to punk! (& our work is culturally appropriated)
- Because in a time when the people in power are harming us, we need to build sustainable, creative communities where our voices & talents are heard and celebrated!

About the Curator
Daisy Salinas is a Xicana feminist punk zinester (Muchacha Fanzine), musician (Frijolera Riot), activist, and curator. She started the quarterly decolonial feminist punk fest "Xingonas in the Pit” with the purpose of promoting punk as an act of resistance and self-sufficiency for people of color. Her goal for the third Xingonas in the Pit: "Black and Brown Punk Fest TX" is to build a safe space for punks of color to reclaim their identities, their art, and their collective liberation.
