Since the official citywide declaration of their very own day in Austin in 2013, ATX hip-hop duo Riders Against the Storm dedicated RAS Day to giving back to the Austin community. From this came the creation of the annual RAS Day Festival, a celebration of music, creativity and diversity.
Once again, the festival features another outstanding line-up of artists, including Leikeli47, The APX (“F.Y.G” is the track on today’s Austin Music Minute, featuring Zapp), Madison McFerrin, the one and only Miss Lavelle White, DJ Eye Q, Eimaral Sol, M3CCA, and of course, Riders Against the Storm.
The word is out. This is the party, the vibration, the BIG celebration. Doors open at 5 p.m. at Empire Control Room, 606 E. 7th St. Recommended.
