Once again, your humble Austin Music Minute maven will impart this bit of wisdom, as I’ve done a million times before, that you should take to heart: Nothing can replace the sensations of a live music performance. So much of our local talent give astounding live performances that will blow your mind. And this is when the AMM presents Riders Against the Storm as the perfect example of one of the ultimate live experiences.
The husband and wife hip-hop duo came to Austin about four years ago from Rhode Island, determined to continue making music and support their local community as they did before. Their music carries strong positive messages, owing to the fact that the duo believe in music’s healing power and ability to bring about change. The energy they bring to their shows is proof, because it takes them no time to get the crowd up and moving.
Hear it for yourself. See Riders Against the Storm tonight at The Sahara Lounge, 1413 Webberville Rd. It’s Third Thursday Throwdown, sure to be a huge crowd-pleaser because this is the best of the best throwin’ down. D Madness will be in the house, and DJ Dug Fresh will rock the vinyl. Doors open at 9 p.m. Too good to pass up. Recommended.
