If you know anything about Austin music, you know that KUTX 98.9FM dominates the radio music landscape. Their new hit show The Breaks hosted by Confucius and Fresh is on-air every Saturday night between 10pm-1am. The Breaks has morphed into the go-to platform for up and coming urban artists in Austin following KUTX’s mantra as the “Austin Music Experience”. After a successful SXSW The Breaks Showcase which saw multiple local performers playing in front of a packed crowd at Karma Lounge, The Breaks teams up with The Hakone Agency to bring you the next show in the series… Summer Jam.
The lineup is stacked with well-known artists to a few up-and-comers primed to deliver great performances. Melat is by far the best R&B singer in the city and paired with artists like The Teeta and Deezie Brown, Summer Jam promises to be inclusive to a variety of sounds and styles. This one will be one for the record books. The full lineup includes;
with sounds by Joaqu.n.
You can purchase your tickets online here or at the door for just $10. 50% of all ticket sales will go directly to Kids In a New Groove, a local non-profit that gives children in foster care direct access to music opportunities and hands-on mentorship. The Hakone Agency is also donating a portion of the proceeds to The Eden Reforestation Project’s tree planting efforts in Madagascar.
