KUTX Announces Summer Jam

Showcase hosted by The Breaks benefits Kids in a New Groove

Austin's premier hip-hop radio show, The Breaks, hosts KUTX's Summer Jam on Friday, August 31, 8pm, at Barracuda. And if the impressive lineup isn't enough (see below), half of all ticket sales will benefit local nonprofit Kids in a New Groove, which provides more than 150 Central Texas kids in foster care with free, weekly music lessons and mentorship.
