"Lerma’s: El Corazon del Conjunto"

For more than 60 years, Lerma’s Nite Club functioned as the vibrant center of the conjunto universe, hosting the likes of Eva Ybarra and Esteban “Steve” Jordan on its compact stage and providing a puro San Anto backdrop for the film Selena and Girl in a Coma’s video for “Clumsy Sky.” Shuttered in 2010 for code violations and now under the guardianship of the Esperanza Center, Lerma’s has been designated a historic landmark. On Saturday, the nonprofit welcomes historian Susana Segura and accordionist Juan Tejeda to discuss the cherished venue’s cultural significance. Free, 10am-1pm, Rinconcito de Esperanza, 816 S. Colorado St., 228-0201, esperanzacenter.org. — Bryan Rindfuss
