Night Fever! VOL VIII Hip Hop 2nd Edition

It’s Memorial Day weekend. For most that means 3 days of rest, BBQ’ing and live music. Let me help you out with live music suggestions because y’all know how to rest and I hope you know how to BBQ. If you don’t, shame on you! This is Texas!

Start the weekend off right with Night Fever!. Night Fever, brought to you by Strange Tribe Productions and Soul of the Boot Entertainment, is a Hip-Hop themed party with 4 of Austin’s finest purveyors of classic hip-hop doing a 2 x 4 Tag Team set. Nick Nack’s been on the scene for years in ATX. Also on the bill is DJ Chorizo Funk, Kid Slyce, and DJ Crown. There will also be live art by B.E. Strange. The fun kicks off at 9pm down at the Copa Bar & Grill (217 Congress Ave).

Here’s some more music assistance for the rest of your weekend and beyond.
