Who doesn’t love a good summer soul party? With all the indie-rock and mega-touring band hype in Austin, it is easy to forget Austin has some of the best DJ scenes and dance parties in country. And no, not all are all about glow sticks, malnourished go-go dancers or annoying bro-steppers.
Long time Austin-based DJ Chicken George will be kicking off his” Hotter Than July!” series at his Jazztronica Saturdays weekly residency at Malverde. The music will include a tribute to Stevie Wonder and other soul legends through out the night. This Saturday he’ll be joined by DJ Chorizo Funk (Body Rock, ATX).
In addition to his own set, Chicken George has a great lineup of guest DJ’s this month. The next two Saturdays will feature DJ Melodic and DJ Sun from Houston’s Soular Grooves. The residency concludes with a bang when San Francisco-based J Boogie throws down on July 28.
Malverde is located at 400-B West 2nd Street, above La Condesa on Guadalupe. Visit the official Facebook event page here. 21+ are welcome. Party from 9:30 p.m. to 2 a.m.
