RAS Day 2017 returns as a two-day fest

In 2013, the City of Austin declared August 29 Riders Against the Storm Day and every year since the husband/wife hip-hop crew has celebrated with a throwdown at Kenny Dorham’s Backyard. This year the event expands to two days, adding a concert at Empire Garage the night before the main event, a family-friendly, multi-cultural wellness festival in East Austin, very intentionally designed to bring love, light and healing to artists, activists and the community at large.

Featured artists include PJ Morton from New Orleans and Raul Midón from NYC at the Friday night Empire show and funkadelic bass specialist Nik West at Kenny Dorham’s Backyard.

RAS Day 2017 takes place August 18-19. Tickets are currently on sale for $20/day or $30/2-day. Kids 12 and under are free.

Bassist Nik West is set to play RAS Day at Kenny Dorhams Backyard.
