[9/14] Preview: Bombasta & Afrofreque at The Sahara Lounge

The Sahara Lounge, formerly TC’s Lounge,  will play host to a great night of live music on Friday, September 14. Two of the region’s best fusion bands, Afrofreque and Bombasta,  will have attendees on their feet as they bring the best of funk, cumbia, hip hop and soul with conscious lyrics in two languages. In addition to the live music offerings, attendees will have the opportunity to enjoy food from The Smokehouse BBQ trailer on the back patio.

Known as the “barrio big band” from San Antonio, Bombasta is a Latin fusion band that mixes styles and instrumentations effortlessly as their lyrics travel between Spanish and English. Often referred to as San Antonio’s answer to Ozomatli, Bombasta are known for energetic live shows and being socially conscious.

Austin-based Afrofreque is world hip hop and soul influenced fusion band, bringing together elements of soul, reggae, hip hop, funk and Afrobeat. Their lyrics and message aim to be conscious while creative. Fronted by MC Tigre Liu, Afrofreque has a reputation for being quite the party band.

The Sahara Lounge is located at 1413 Webberville Rd. Doors open at 9:30 p.m. Music starts at 10 p.m. Both bands will be alternating sets throughout the night. 21+ welcome. $5 cover. Free parking. Visit the event page on Facebook here and on Do512 here.
