The alternative-rock quartet known as The Morakestra was formed by El Paso natives and twin brothers David and Will Mora. They used their musical talent and passion to produce two inspiring albums with the help of some local music legends. The band’s sophomore release, Witness To Connection, showcases the brothers’ energetic and unique sound, and has received praise from various musical outlets including Austin Vida. The Morakestra’s brand of indie alt-rock is often described as catchy and uplifting with a hint of psychedelic.
The Morakestra will be headlining Stubb’s indoor on Thursday, January 21st. Playing before The Morakestra will be Austin’s own Magnet School and St. Cloud. Stubb’s is located at 801 Red River. Doors open at 9:00pm and the show starts at 9:30pm. Tickets are $8. You can purchase tickets online at Front Gate Tickets here.
