Tonight the Body Rock ATX crew will present a special one off tribute party to old school hip-hop collective, The Native Tongues, at The Sahara Lounge. As they do every first Friday of the month, Austin-based hip-hop duo Riders Against The Storm (RAS) and DJ Chorizo Funk will have you dancing all through the night. The Body Rock 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.
The Native Tongues collective featured New York-based groups Jungle Brothers, A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, Black Sheep and Brit-hop icon Monie Love during what many critics and hip-hop historians consider to be hip-hop’s golden era.
The Sahara Lounge is located at 1413 Webberville Rd. Party from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. $5 cover. 21+ welcome. Visit the Facebook event page here.
