Today is the first Friday of the month and that means it is time to party once again with DJ Chorizo Funk and friends at Sahara Lounge for Body Rock. What started in 2010 at Plush is now one of the city’s best dance parties featuring the best old school soul, hip hop, funk, Afro-Latin and disco. Soul Train lines are common and the crowd typically lacks the pretentiousness of hipster scene. For those looking for a good time away from downtown, Body Rock is for you.
This month the curators of Body Rock welcome special guest and popular Austin fav, DJ Mel. A longtime curator of cool in Austin long before the hipster movement blew up, Mel’s hip hop night on Monday’s at Nasty’s was a right of passage for Austinites. He also hosted a hip hop karaoke for a minute at the now closed Tambaleo. Long story short, DJ Mel knows how to get it poppin’.
Sahara Lounge is located at 1413 Webberville Rd. Party from 10 p.m to 2 a.m. 21+ welcome. Cover is $4. Visit the official Facebook event page here.
