    RAS Day Fest w/ PJ Morton, Raul Midon, RAS, Jackie Venson

    Curated by husband/wife hip-hop duo Riders Against the Storm, RAS Day had initially planned to expand to two days in its fourth year, but now distills into a single night a DIY endeavor that’s rightfully earned comparisons to Brooklyn’s Afropunk Festival. The stacked bill features NOLA R&B keyboard wiz PJ Morton (Maroon 5), blind and brilliant New Mexico song shaman Raul Midón, Arizonan funk bass goddess Nik West, and local blues siren Jackie Venson, who Gary Clark Jr. hand-picked as a tour opener.

    Gente de Zona

    Cuban duo Gente de Zona mesh reggaeton beats with Caribbean rhythms for infectious Latin pride. Alexander Delgado and Michel “El Caro” Delgado began as a hip-hop group at the millennium. El Caro left but with Randy Malcom Martinez the group broke internationally on “Bailando” in 2014. The world’s flocking to the Latino party, they sing in “La Gozadera.” It’s about time.

    Helstar, Ignitor, Byfist, Force of Rage

    These power/speed metal vets stretch back to the early Eighties, when the Houstonians shared a label with Megadeth and Exodus, and toured with everyone from Stryper to Yngwie Malmsteen. Four new LPs since a new millennial reunion peaked on last year’s Vampiro which appeared on ’Deth bassist Dave Ellefson’s label to universal acclaim. Fellow Lone Star metalheads Ignitor, Byfist, Force of Rage, and L.A.’s 9Electric ride into battle first.
