Hard Proof brings live, free Afro-beat jams to Central Market North tonight
Featuring members of Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears, Echocentrics, Calm Blue Sea and Cougar, Hard Proof is "internationally-inspired," drawing cues from the wide range of music represented across Africa and beyond.
The show is the latest in Central Market's live music lineup, which features several sets a week from local performers (like upcoming Rattlesnake Marimba, White Ghost Shivers and Seu Jacinto). The series tends to favor Austin bands with decidedly more broad interests, from upbeat, traditional Brazilian dance music to vaudeville-reminiscent ragtime.
Tonight, expect to hear upbeat tempos with a chorus of horns and heavy percussion from the nine-piece Hard Proof. Take a look at some recent clips for a taste:
Hard Proof performs at Central Market North from 6 pm - 9 pm Thursday, September 1st.
