This Friday, Aug. 7, the Body Rock ATX crew are doing it big once again at Empire Control Room & Garage. Every first Friday of the month, DJ Chorizo Funk and Austin-based hip-hop faves Riders Against The Storm throw the best hip-hop dance party in Austin with a different theme. This Friday, the crew will pay tribute to hip-hop’s birthplace, New York City.
An annual theme for the Body Rock ATX, this year’s New York-inspired tribute will be expanding into danceable genres other than hip-hop, including disco and classic funk from New York artists. According the crew’s Facebook event page, DJ Chorizo Funk “will also throw in some freestyle, reggae, dancehall, and house music.” This all goes down inside on the control room stage.
The Body Rock ATX crew will also play host to a special guest on the patio, DJ Gracie Chavez. Hailing from Houston, Texas, Chavez is the leading lady of the city’s baddest Latin Bass collective, Bombón. She’ll be performing on the eve of the Bombón EP release party coming up later this month.
Bottom line: There is no other place to be for hip-hop fans and party people this Friday. Real hip-hop. Positive vibes. Mixed crowd. Dranks. ‘Nuff said.
