Euphoria Fest 2017: Thursday Top Picks
Today is the start of the 6th annual Euphoria Music Festival at Carson Creek Ranch in Austin, TX. It is shaping up to be a beautiful opening day, with potentially the best Thursday Night pre-party lineup so far from Euphoria. We have some amazing local Austin talent leading off the weekend, followed by one of the top acts from All Good Records.
Local Austin hip-hop trio The Bishops will be kicking off the festival this year. The Bishops are a rare super group in the music industry. They are made up of three people who are real-life family members, and each of them have their own career outside of this new collaboration. They teamed up to release their first synth-ed up single ‘Blood Ring,’ which caught fire on some Spotify playlists and captured almost 500,000 streams for the young family trio.
They clearly will not be stopping here. As Cara Bishop says herself in their hit single, “Not one, not two, but three,” The Bishops are ready to show Austin fans what they are all about with a full hour set tonight. This will do be the biggest festival yet for the band. The Bishops kick off Euphoria Fest tonight at 6:30pm CST – don’t miss it!
Following The Bishops at 7:45pm is another amazing local Austin trio Resonant Frequency. They have started off 2017 with a huge bang, playing late night STS9 afterparty shows, opening for RJD2, and also playing 2 sets at Head for the Hills Festival 2 weeks ago.
They have truly started to developer their own sound and vibe, which is a mix of future funk, soul, and a little southern texas hip hop swag. They are guaranteed to keep you on you dancing throughout the entire set, and all three musicians are incredibly talented and know how to put on a great live set.
This is their first Euphoria Fest set, so you can bet on them spicing it up with some surprise guests, and bringing their funkiest beats to kick off Euphoria Fest the right way. Make sure you are there to see what it’s like to get everyone to vibe on the same Resonant Frequency.
Last, the headline for tonight’s lineup, Manic Focus. Manic Focus is the electronic music project of John “JmaC” McCarten, a Chicago-based producer originally hailing from the Twin Cities. He’s become well known for his multi-dimensional sound, including elements of soul, dubstep, hip-hop, blues, and funk. It’s an amazing complitation of heavy and smooth sounds that make for an incredible live performance.
JmaC teamed up with GRiZ and All Good Records in 2014 for his fourth album ‘Cerebral Eclipse’ and he hasn’t looked back since. He is at the forefront of this new age funk revolution and he is the perfect fit to bring home the night and end night one of Euphoria with a bang.
As you can see, this is one of the best Thursday Euphoria has booked yet. Their mix of strong local talent to kick things off, and following it with Manic Focus as the headliner is guaranteed to put music fans in a state of Euphoria tonight.
