Body Rock ATX began as a small lil’ East Coast-inspired hip-hop dance party at Plush in 2010. Founded by Austin-based hip-hop duo Riders Against The Storm (RAS) and DJ Chorizo Funk (Peligrosa), Body Rock ATX is now in its 4th year and celebrating Friday night at popular East Austin venue, The Sahara Lounge. Special guest DJ Mel of Rock The Casbah fame joins the celebration.
So why drive “so far east” for Body Rock you ask? Because it is the one hip-hop dance party in Austin that hipsters haven’t ruined yet and hopefully won’t. It is the most non-pretentious, positive and fun monthly hip-hop dance party in Austin. After attending one, even if just their annual Michael Jackson tribute, you’ll know first Fridays mean “Body Rock.”
The Sahara Lounge is located at 1413 Webberville Rd. Party from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. 21+ welcome. $5 cover. Visit the official Facebook event page here. Listen to some Body Rock audio goodness below.
