This is where the fire’s at. Wednesday night’s bill at C-Boy’s Heart and Soul presents a big part of your summertime soundtrack:

  • Born in Miami, raised in Columbia, and bringing it all to Austin, Kiko Villamizar has cumbia in his blood and psych in his soul. Soak it all up when you spin Villamizar’s third LP Todo El Mundo, and make sure you revisit his excellent My KUTX playlist from earlier this year. Damn…
  • Welcome to the slow burner that roars. Scorching blues rock with a twist of acid rock fuels the modus operandi of killer trio JéTexas. Make it heavy, man.

Villamizar goes on at 10 p.m., followed by JéTexas at 11:30 p.m. this Wednesday, June 22 at C-Boy’s, 2008 S. Congress Ave.

Many proclaim Rakim as an innovator of “the flow” in rap, or it’s natural rhythms/cadence. Though today’s Austin Music Minute […]
