We had an amazing time at The Blackheart a couple weekends ago. The future of live music on Rainey St. may be up in the air, but that night the vibe was alive and well.

Our good friend Edison Carter from Bitter Kitten Media captured the scene.

ROXY ROCA is making a record!

We are thrilled to announce that ROXY ROCA is going into the studio to make our debut record! Taye made a video to tell you what we have in store. We’ll get the ball rolling this December at EAR Studio in Austin, TX with producer Lars Goransson. Lars has built an impressive resume that includes everyone from indie darlings (like Cotton Mather, What Made Milwaukee Famous, Ian Moore) to major-label rockers (like The Cardigans, Dave Pirner, Alpha Rev) and soul/blues/funk legends (like A.C. Littlefield, Kool & Together, Cornell Dupree). We can’t wait to see how he can help us bring the ROXY ROCA sound to life. The record should be completed by the end of this year with a release date in 2013.

Art Outside is a unique three day festival combining visual and interactive art, performance, film, as well as a wide range of music bridging genres, from bluegrass to experimental, hip-hop to dance music.

We had an unforgettable night at Beauty Ballroom last Saturday night. Everybody knows Knuckle Rumbler throws a mean party and this was no exception. We were honored to kick off a night of soul with our good friends KP and The Boom Boom and a DJ set from none other than Mayer Hawthorne.

Our good friend Edison Carter from Bitter Kitten Media was on hand to take some photos.
