Body Rock is a monthly dance party series that regularly goes down on the first Fridays of the month. Hosted by Austin-based hip hop duo Riders Against The Storm (RAS) and DJ Chorizo Funk, the series provides a unique party experience featuring the best soul, funk, RnB and of course hip hop. KUT captured the spirit and vibe of Body Rock in this video here.
Tonight at Hotel Vegas, the Body Rock crew is teaming up with Austin-based events promoter Knuckle Rumbler for a special one off tribute party to old school hip hop collective The Native Tongues. The collective featured New York-based groups Jungle Brothers, A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, Black Sheep and BritHop icon Monie Love during what many critics and hip hop historians consider to be hip hop’s golden era. Red Bull Thre3style Austin Champion DJ Donnie will also be spinning tonight.
Hotel Vegas is located at 1500 E. 6th Street. Doors at 9 p.m. 21+ are welcome. Cover is $5 at the door or $3 with RSVP at Do512 here.
