A daily rundown of live entertainment in and around San Marcos tonight, compiled by Mercury Scene Editor Hap Mansfield and our content partners at San Marcos Tonight.
Two wildly different choices at Texas State tonight will make it hard for some to choose. The eclectic pop and fizz of SCRAP•ARTS•MUSIC will feature athletic dance and a virtual candy store for the eyes and ears in a contemporary inventive mix of choreography and music at Evans Auditorium. Meanwhile, at the Wittliff Collections/Alkek Library, Rumbo Al’ Anacua (pictured) will sing and preserve the folk songs of the Rio Grande Valley in a nod to the historical importance of Texas, Mexico and the laborers of the border. Their performance is a mix of sorrow and joy, poetry and longing and will most certainly move the listener starting at 6 p.m. It’s a mix of the new and the old in San Marcos and only you can decide which to honor tonight.
