Urban Music Festival w/ Stokley, Zapp, Lyfe Jennings, Arrested Development, Chrisette Michele, Adina Howard, Michel 'Le, Changing Faces, Sunshine Anderson, Don Diego

Every spring, Festival, Texas – aka Austin – sprouts music convergences more plentiful than bluebonnets, but don’t snooze on the local sleeper: Urban Cultural Fest. Annually, the state capital’s dwindling Black population shows up en masse to hype both legacy acts and modern crooners and swooners. Electro G-funk pioneers who popularized the talk box, Zapp still stars two of the four Troutman bros who founded a band Ice Cube once cited as his window into hip-hop via “More Bounce to the Ounce.” A big ol’ stack warms them up: Stokley, Lyfe Jennings, Chrisette Michele, Adina Howard, Michel’le, Changing Faces, Don Diego, and Sunshine Anderson. – Raoul Hernandez
