Austin funk band Brownout is the funkier alter ego of Grupo Fantasma. Led by the musical mastermind of Adrian Quesada (Grupo Fantasma, Ocote Soul Sounds, The Echocentrics), Brownout has set itself apart from their Latin big brother and grown their popularity over the past few years. The group recently released their latest album Oozy in April.
Like their Latin big brother, Brownout is going to be the backing band for hip hop artists on rare occasions. As Grupo Fantasma, they were the backing band for Wu-Tang Clan member GZA at Bonoaroo this year. On Thursday, June 28, Quesada and company will be performing as Brownout with underground hip hop producer, rapper and icon Prince Paul at Beauty Ballroom. It will be a rare event hip hop fans won’t want to miss.
