The C.I.T.Y. brings the party back to Zanzibar (5/4)

On the same night as the entertaining Mayweather fight we still brought the party to the bare club. Whether two hundred or twenty we gave those few a show worthy for the masses to witness and the reception was likewise! We had them grooving in their seats, up dancing and singing-that’s dedication of a hungry audience!

The C.I.T.Y. takes the party to TSU (5/3)

Friday afternoon around 4pm the CITY brought the party to the yards of TSU to entertain some music students, staff and faculty. They brought the barbecue and we obliged with the energy to party ad boy did they do so! Young and old, plate full of food or none many crowded before the CITY to enjoy the tunes and danced themselves into a tired stupor! Seriously we brought high energy to the gathering to the end and most who started dancing with us couldn’t hang (yeah that barbecue got em!). Good tunes. Good food. Good times.

The C.I.T.Y. comes to Zanzibar to party

The C.I.T.Y. left ATX to return home and party at Zanzibar Houston. Though the crowd wasn’t visually receptive as Austin’s free crowd but we left the set with them jumping and gyrating and wanting more. Hopefully the Houston crowds can be more open to groove during the set. Just saying.

We refreshed the set already blazing set with Bruno Mars’ “Locked out of Heaven” and continued to bring the energy til midnight when we were forced to acquiesce our space to the DJ’s reign for the night AWWWW SUCH TORTURE!!! It’s undeniable that we killed our set and plenty of peeps weren’t ready to dance to the DJ yet…you should’ve seen them sitting there and a few asked me “how long is your break?” PROOF that they appreciated our music and show…they just …didn’t…show it like the amazing cool folks in ATX…not to knock our H-TOWN folks but dance and show us some love rather than the emotionless Stepford wives facial expressions….yeah…expressionless, right?

Rihanna-Pour it up

Bruno Mars-Locked out of Heaven

SXSW invasion with The C.I.T.Y.

Saturday evening. ATX. aka Music Haven, TX.  SXSW [south-by-south-west] has taken over ATX [austin, tx] every Spring Break that i can recall, and it’s been fun AND stressful being one of many Many MANY  participants…to play in some venues planning comes in handy…PARKING can be a nightmare if you’re not sure of the location, timing, accessibility, etc….wow, i’ve just typed mad characters on a digression moment.

 

Soooooo, The C.I.T.Y. turned up Saturday night and turnedout the entire block, with devout C.I.T.Y.folk and newfound fans claiming to have witnessed one of the best shows out here this SXW…YES we came, we performed errrrrr PARTIED and conquered da block and left out like a couple of musical bandits.

 

Peep this article snippet from a pleased critic:

One band, The C.I.T.Y., who’s from Houston, TX and creating a buzz of their own around the city, shut down the whole block of Congress with their own performance segment in front of Ms. P’s Electric Cock at 1101 South Congress.  With their tunes mixed with funk, soul, r&b, hip hop, and even a little rock, The C.I.T.Y. showed Austin they were a force to be reckoned with as a crowd gathered on the block of all ages ranging from little kids to older adults who were all jamming and partying to the tunes.  “We don’t just perform, we party,” said RaShard, the lead singer of the band.  And they definitely started a block party on the Congress strip.

Read the rest of the article here: City Girl Magazine/s SXSW Recap

Just a snippet of what happened last Saturday night in ATX…enjoy AND LEARN THE MOVES TO THE SONG!!!!
