More shout-outs are in order from the AMM! If you haven’t already, make time to listen to Pause/Play‘s episode highlighting the experiences of Black artists in the local music scene. One of those artists is in the spotlight on today’s Music Minute – writer, actor and hip-hop artist Te’aunna Moore, known to the world as Blakchyl.

Moore got into rap when she was in high school with the help of a local nonprofit known as Cypher, connecting students to musicians to encourage them to write and perform. Moore’s biggest hope is that this kind of mentorship will continue to inspire and pave the way for future artists, the way it did for her. ““I hope to see something like a Cypher in the future,” she says. “I feel like if young people had some type of guidance like that, seeing other men and girls that look like them, who are really genre-bending and helping their community and making opportunities for themselves to leave and see the world.”

Blakchyl is one of several artists in tonight’s HELL’S HOTTEST Vol. 2 showcase at Empire Control Room on E. 7th. South Texas hip-hop artist and producer HELLCAT leads the bill featuring Censored Dialogue, Ben Buck, Khxnid, Sol Basik, Apollo and Naahlah. Doors at 7 p.m.

What’s Yr Damage

Following the breakup of their previous psych-gaze band Creepoid, Anna and Patrick Troxell forged an electro post-punk dynamic as the duo Lovelorn. And now the ATX-by-way-of Philly outfit is ramping things up with two new additions to the line-up, guitarists Steve Pike and Kyle Harris. No doubt extra shreds will add even more discordant dimensions […]
