Thursday nights just got waaayyyyy funkier this month at Frank. The popular purveyor of the artisan sausage, which regularly features live music to go with those fancy hot dogs, will host Austin-based two sets from Austin-based funksters Brownout live every Thursday night in September. Con El Brownout No Se Juega!
As if two sets of the funk each Thursday night was not enough, Brownout is performing with different special guest DJs and collaborators each Thursday night. Starting with a hip-hop theme tonight, local hip-hop faves DJ Chicken George (peddling jazztronica), Riders Against The Storm and Bavu Blakes join band for some special performances.
Tonight’s lone out of town guest, Will Holland, comes all the way from Colombia by way of England. Better known by his DJ moniker Quantic, Holland spins some of the best electronic cumbias, salsa, bossa nova, soul, funk and jazz. Many of you will remember his track “Mi Swing Es Tropical” with Nickodemus from the Apple commercial.
Frank is located at 407 Colorado St. Doors open at 9 p.m. with the DJs and music starts at 10:30 p.m. $10 cover. All ages are welcome. Check back with Austin Vida each week for previews of each night’s showcase or visit the event page on Facebook here for details.
