Knuckle Rumbler Presents: The Robot Parade

Known around town for their killer parties thrown at some of Austin’s hottest locations, which always come with the best party people and most up-and-coming artists (do you remember SXSW 2k10?), Knuckle Rumbler is at it again, bringing us The Robot Parade THIS Friday, April 30th at 7th street party spot, Beauty Bar. Hosted by electro-funk extraordinaire, Neiliyo, the KR kids are throwing this bash in honor of  Zeale’s EP release (Robot Radio). Not only will you have a brilliant performance from this well-rounded MC-whiz to look forward to, but sets from GOBI and L.A.X. and the DJ skills of Hot Britches! and Richard Gear will also keep you going all night long.

As a staple in the “underground street circuit”, Zeale comes to us Friday after an impressive 12 show run during SXSW. After spending that week in March being an ambassador of sorts to his hometown, he is ready to release a brand new EP, which highlights his up-tempo, high energy, cosmic and refreshing sound. Influenced by the likes of Jay-Z, Daft Punk, Lupe Fiasco, Major Lazer, and MSTRKRFT, Zeale kicked off his career showing promising skills as a freestyle battle emcee and winning a number of regional and international rap battles before connecting with his current producer, Marko Jelic. Now, leaving his freestyle days behind, Zeale shows unique and versatile skills that set him well above the rest of the hip-hop scene. As a well-rounded MC, Zeale has held the stage with acts ranging from Goodie Mob to Jason Mraz, but now, it’s about time that he has the spotlight all to himself.

Playing alongside Zeale will be two electro-powerhouses: L.A.X. and GOBI:

With an “eclectic hybrid of electronic dance tracks”, L.A.X. is a 6-piece group who blew critics’ minds and nabbed a solid place on everyone’s “must see” list last year at ACL. With top notch Fun Fun Fun Fest and SXSW performances following that, they have worked their way up the Austin musical ladder to become one of the hottest bands to book. Because they have an album coming up in May, consider this Friday to be a special opportunity to see them play before they get even bigger.

Conceived after spending nights in electronica clubs along the Mexican border, GOBI is a live electronic/indie group who originally made a name for themselves out in San Marcos, becoming the “go to” house for “infamous dance parties and inevitable chaos.” They will, no doubt, take “dirty dancing” to a whole new level this Friday, so make sure you come check them out.

To top it all off, DJ Hot Britches and Richard Gear will be going all night long inside, and Sneak Attack will be on site showing/selling you all the hottest kicks and gear.

The show is only $5 if you RSVP on Do512 ($7 without), AND if you RSVP you also get a free mp3 copy of “Digital Swagger” (a.k.a. Zeale’s hit single which will most likely become THE jam of the summer). So, basically, there’s not reason not to head over to the event page and put your name down!

Get ready for the hip-hop/electro/dance party of your LIFE. Guaranteed you will all leave more sweaty satisfied than when you came!
