Black Everythang Matters

Posted by on Aug 6, 2020

Loads of musical discovery for you, and it’s all part of representing your ATX community. Step on up.

Chaka Mandla Mhambi Mpeanaji (Riders Against the Storm) curated a massive show spotlighting rising Austin musical talent in continued efforts to rally support for the DAWA Fund, a local nonprofit founded by Chaka providing grants to Austin people of color experiencing financial difficulties. And here we have the big show: Black Everythang Matters, a livestream benefit, co-presented by Heard Presents and filmed at Empire Control Room, featuring performances by 5D, Chakeeta B, Clarence James, DJ Kay Cali, February 2020 KUTX Artist of the Month Eimaral Sol, J Soulja, and the mighty Mama Duke.

All Austin. All badass. All kicking off at 7 p.m. (Central) tonight, Thursday August 7, on Heard’s YouTube channel and Facebook page. And all proceeds benefit the DAWA Fund.
