In Full Effect

By: Laurie Gallardo

It’s one of the best Saturday nights around, music nerd. Going from Rick McNulty sweeping you off your feet with all manner of rock ‘n’ soul classics on Uptown Saturday Night right into dynamic duo Confucious Jones and Fresh shaking things up with massive hip-hop, rap, funk/soul/R&B and then some on The Breaks on KUTX 98.9. And it’s always live. That spontaneity keeps it real. But now, it’s time to take it up a notch.

The Breaks Live is KUTX’s new residency at Empire Control Room, 606 E. 7th St., featuring all the fantastic track selections and candid conversation you hear on The Breaks, live and in person. The new show launches tonight with a performance and interview with special guest, Houston hip-hop artist Doeman Dyna. Doors open at 9 p.m. Send in an RSVP to get in free before 10 p.m.

Get on up. The Austin Music Minute recommends this one double time.

-The track featured on today’s AMM is “Ms. Compton,” from the self-titled album by Jake Lloyd.
