[12/21] Preview: Hardproof Afrobeat and Money Chicha at Mohawk

With the world supposedly ending tonight, venues and promoters have booked some great lineups and events all over town. We are happy to see that the folks at Mohawk are celebrating “the end of the world” with two of our local favorites paired up once again, Money Chicha and Hardproof Afrobeat. Electro-madman Butcher Bear will be joining the party, spinning throughout the night and in-between sets.

Austin’s first Chicha group opens the show. Another of many Grupo Fantasma side projects, Money Chicha jams some of the best Peruvian inspired cumbia. The group incorporates elements of psych-rock, fuzzy guitar riffs, and reverb with heavy percussion to go with the the traditional Chicha sound.

Hardproof Afrobeat is Austin’s best known Afrobeat group. You might recognize some of the members from Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears, but these guys hold their own with Hardproof. The group takes heavy horns and blends them with funky polyrhythms, tropical and mystical undertones.

Mohawk is located at 912 Red River. Show will be at inside stage. Doors open at 9 p.m. All ages are welcome. $7 cover. Visit the Facebook event page here.
