Hurricane Harvey Fundraiser feat. Fahari

12:00 PM · Mahi Taco

As a principal, Mahi Taco has always focused on feeding people, making sure that no one is left hungry. Without kitchens or refrigerators, or pantries to go home to, many of the people of Houston and surrounding Texas area will be relying on the help of community organizations to be fed and to have clean water. All day, Mahi Taco will be donating 100% of its profit, and 100% of tips, so if you want to pitch in a little more, hand it off to us, and we will quickly send it down to a food bank in the area who needs it most. Featuring music by the talented Fahari.

Fhloston Paradigm, Amenta Abioto, Alissa DeRubeis

9:00 PM · S1

King Britt’s future forward project Fhloston Paradigm has been his focus since 2012. The inaugural full album of this project, The Phoenix, debuted on the dynamic label Hyperdub in 2014. His new album After… is the continuation of the story… ascension and polyrhythmic primal energy through unexpected process. Weaved into syncopated rhythms and dichotomies of comedic proportions, Amenta surprises and tantalizes audiences with mind-bending ideas. She brings to the music scene funky academia while skipping vocally from soul-shaking gospel to smooth jazz and then onto hip-hop rhythms wrapped in West African beats.
