Stepping out of a short break to set up another powerful booty-shaking night at Lambert's Downtown BBQ, Afrofreque presents their first Freque-a-Thon event and enlists heavyweight house rockers Starlynx with DJ Bigface to insure another glorious night of funky hip-hop grooves. Freque-a-Thon will take place on November 29th, 2008. Lambert's BBQ is located at 401 W. 2nd St. in downtown Austin. Cover is only $5 for the 21+ funk, soul, and hip-hop lovers in town.
With a amazing band line-up intermingled with Austin's vibrant music scene, it's no surprise that members of Afrofreque are in high-demand for a variety of side projects. Keyboardist Claude 9 recently celebrated the sell-out vinyl release of Viva La Remix, a 4-track dance floor shaker created in collaboration with DJ Manny under the Los Banditos monikur. Claude has also been working with Manny and Bigface on The Black & White Year's East Side Remix, celebrated through a special event on November 15th. And, if that is not enough, check out his solo DJ set at Carlos Santana's Maria Maria restaurant on November 21st.
When his not laying down his lyrical mastery for Afrofreque, MC Tigre Liu can be found as a regular guest at DJ Resinthol's Hump! events held every Friday night at Plush. You may also catch a whiff of his flow through some of DJ Bigface's original products, as well as on tracks by Starlynx. You may not recall the name from the top your mind, but if you were at the Bassnectar show at Antone's last year, you'll remember the madness of Starlynx's opening set at the sold-out show.
No stranger to Austin's funk scene, DJ Resinthol has been holding the grooves steady at Hump! Friday's at Plush with co-creator DJ Paco. Since its enception, Resinthol and Paco have hosted guest appearance by Chicago house music pioneer Boo Williams, as well as special guests including percussionist El Cocinero, Jazz trumpet player Ephraim Owens, and DJ J.J. Lopez.
The November Freque-a-thon introduces a myriad of collaborate project under one roof. Tune in and funk out.
