Austin-based funk band Brownout continues their Thursday night residency at Frank tonight. The little brother side project of Grupo Fantasma brought the party last week with the help of some special hip-hop guests. Tonight should be just as funky as the group will perform the James Brown cult classic soundtrack album Black Caesar from beginning to end as well as a few other of the lesser known James Brown gems.
In addition to two sets from Brownout, the group will be joined tonight by special guest vocalists Sonia Moore and Nakia Reynoso of The Voice fame. DJ Secondliner will be spinning before, after and in-between sets.
Frank is located at 407 Colorado St. Doors open at 9 p.m. with the DJs and music starts at 10:30 p.m. $10 cover. All ages are welcome. Check back with Austin Vida each week for previews of each night’s showcase.
