Teens on the scene

El Guapos

There’s more teen scene on Sunday at Mohawk with a benefit show for the Austin Yellow Bike Project. Local favorites Oh No Oh My, Follow That Bird!, and the Tastydactyls headline a fundraiser to help the organization build new headquarters. Entertainment kicks off at 4pm with teen DJ duo Sleuth and JD, then sets from For Hours and Ours plus hot indie rockers the El Guapos.

YBP’s free bike shops are beloved by the Austin community, something that didn’t go unnoticed by the benefit's organizers, Bold & Zesty Productions. What makes B&Z unique is that when they talk about teen issues, it’s coming from the source. Founders Colin Jenkins and Zoe Cordes Selvin are high school students who wanted to make a difference, and found a creative way to do it. Jenkins is also in the Diving Captain, which is performing along with El Guapos and 14 other teen acts at the official South by Southwest teen band day party at Momo's, Friday, March 20.
