As good as Grupo Fantasma is, sometimes we are in the mood to party with their funkier alter-ego Brownout. Led by the musical mastermind of Adrian Quesada (Grupo Fantasma, Ocote Soul Sounds, The Echocentrics), Brownout has set themselves apart from their Latin big brother and grown in popularity over the past few years. Currently Brownout is set to release their new album Oozy to the world officially on April 24 via Nat Geo Records.
Before the world gets their chance to purchase Oozy, the group will perform a headlining CD release show for their hometown fans here in Austin on Friday, April 20, at Mohawk. It should be a great night as they just came back from a West Coast tour where they worked on perfecting their new material live. An added bonus for attendees is New Orleans-based Stooges Brass Band open the show.
Mohawk is located at 912 Red River. Doors open at 8 p.m. All ages are welcome. Advance tickets are available for this show here. Visit the event page on Do512 here.
