Halloween is just around the corner and with it comes a seasonal favorite: Freaky Future Disco at Austin Roller Rink! Solstice Festival and Sound on Sound Festival are teaming up to bring you a night full of music, art and costumes.
The live music line up for this year’s disco will include Night Drive, MISSIO and Flying Turns. Night Drive is the synth-pop duo out of Austin, known for the tragically beautiful story of how they began their career together. The two men, Rodney Connell and Brandon Duhon, met after the death of a young lady that they were both unknowingly dating. The tragedy, they say, bonded them and created what is now a strong and vivacious music source. Now, they are a must-see live performance duo who never fail to bring full energy to the stage (or roller rink). Absolutely the perfect start to a stellar night of entertainment.
MISSIO, Matthew Brue & David Butler, is a duo out of Austin who got their start just last year, but promptly went on to be listed on Apple Music’s “Best of the Week” playlist, Spotifiy’s viral charts and MTV’s hit show “Finding Carter.” They just wrapped up their U.S. tour and don’t look to be slowing down any time soon. Their newest release Our Fragment, a collaboration with Skrux, shows the promise of this young, talented duo. They know how to bring energy to their music–a must for the disco!
Flying Turns look to top off this sick set of artists. This is a group of four guys; Hayden Bagot, Michael Zawodniak, Ben Zink and Dan Gentile, who have given a new “spin” to the DJ game when all four of them decided to collaborate as a full DJ crew. Spinning and trading off just like they would if they were hanging out at home, Flying Turns looks to give a unique experience every time they perform. OV had the chance to sit down with this fantastic crew, and we can’t wait to see them take this disco to the freaky level real quick.
Aside from music, expect live and interactive art at the Freaky Future Disco, along with food for purchase, a bar and the infamous costume contest. Though the event coordinators have yet to announce a prize for the best costumes, last year was free passes to their festival, so it may be worth it to go all-out. Either way, be prepared to have a fun, freaky and long night (8 p.m.-3 a.m.)!
