Infrarrealista Review Launch Party
Saturday, March 7, 2020 | 8:00 pm - 2:00 am
El Luchador Bar, 622 Roosevelt AVE, San Antonio, TX 78210

Infrarrealista Review Event Flyer Image Infrarrealista Review is a literary journal that invites Texan writers who are outside of the literary tradition to reject binaries and take control over their narratives, and art, rather than accepting labels largely invited by white academics.

We have borrowed the name Infrarrealistas from the avant-garde literary movement started in Mexico City.

Our launch party is proud to present music by the San Antonio band Mirame. The group fuses indie rock with R&B and various Latin music genres and shed light on Culture, Environmentalism, and Love. Scholar of Tejanx music, DJ San Quilmas, will also play a special set. Anel H. Flores, also a San Antonio Native and author of the Queer Chicanx novel, Empanada, will be reading amongst other Texan writers and poets.
