KOOP 28th birthday bash w/ Brownout, Hot Texas Swing Band

Bittersweet birthday, somewhat, for KOOP, given last week’s passing of foundational figure Rod Moag. The homepage of 91.7FM Austin Community Radio calls the late scholar, musician, and deejay “an integral part of KOOP since day one.” Since orchids mark anniversaries reaching 28, love, luxury, strength, and beauty hopefully signal 2023 for the homegrown culture beacon. Grupo Fantasma’s spinoff Brownout makes this a pachanga, the local Latin guitar crew putting a fine point on any performance. Moag’s beloved Lone Star sound tributes KOOP’s Texan focus in veteran Austin two-step machine Hot Texas Swing Band. Much to celebrate, anticipate, and wake. – Raoul Hernandez
