This Is Your Jam

By: Laurie Gallardo

All right. So the Jam is a little different this year. But it doesn’t take away from the fire. And this one is LIT.

Not even a pandemic could stop Summer Jam 2020, and having the event go virtual this year has also provided the advantage of taking it to a higher production and presentation level. Just a glimpse of behind-the-scenes footage from producers Hakone Agency shows how much thought and prep has gone into creating one of the biggest events of the year. The Breaks‘ hosts Confucious Jones and Aaron “Fresh” Knight will guide you through exclusive performances and interviews with rising local artists Mike Melinoe, J Soulja, Vintage Jay, TEDDYTHELEGACY, and Chief Cleopatra (“Belushi” is featured on today’s AMM).

You in? The show starts at 7 p.m. (Central) tonight, Thursday September 17, right here on the KUTX website. Donations support the Summer Jam artists, as well as community non-profit DAWA (Diversity Awareness and Wellness in Action), which provides a financial safety net for people of color experiencing short-term life crises.
