Friday night is DATE NIGHT! Bring the family:

Kenny Dorham's Backyard* is part of the Coalition of Austin Community Gardens. It has been a featured stop on various garden tours. On Friday July 10th, COME ENJOY A PICNIC IN THE GARDEN AND SOME LIVE MUSIC OUTDOORS!!! (The yard is shaded, we promise.)

6-7pm Cornerstone (Reggae ATX)
7:30-8pm Afro-Caribbean Soul Collective (ATX)
8:30-10pm Goodwill Souljah (Reggae San Marcos, TX)

THIS IS EASY. Don't bring a picnic. We've got it covered. There will be FOOD TRAILERS ON SITE. Check them out here: 1) https://www.facebook.com/NiceNFul
2) https://www.facebook.com/pages/Wasota-African-Cuisine/296330797045501 and 3) https://www.facebook.com/atxartessano ....So, just bring a cooler with some juices for the kids plus a six pack of beer or a chilled bottle of wine for the celebration. (That's right! YOU WON'T PAY BAR PRICES, because this event is BYOB!) Now that's a CHEAP DATE!

Pay only $10 at the gate to enjoy four great bands on a nice night outside in the open air. (Kids 12 and under get in free to all events and FAMILY DISCOUNTS are provided.)
