    WE'RE TURNING 5!!!

    The Groove Temple, Raasin in the Sun & Miriam Conner proudly present “UNITED:Vol 5” at Empire Control Room & Garage, February 22, 2020. This annual event, in its 5th year, is like NO other in all of Central Texas. We celebrate Black history, Black diversity and Black unity while entirely curated & produced by women of the African Diaspora.

    This one-of-a-kind annual event in its 5th year, is an ALL ACCESS event shining a spotlight on Black women and Black heritage through the lens of House Music. Empire Control Room is ADA accessible for all to join. Our founder is a member of the mobility impaired community and she is dedicated to including all people of any level of disability to celebrate with us!


    UNITED Vol 5 will feature the incomparable soulful deep house stylings of Dee Jay Alicia (T’s Box [ DJ Terry Hunter of Chosen Few Djs), House Tunes Radio, Code Red, Chicago House Music Events App - CHI), Austin’s Funk Mistress DJ I Wanna Be Her (ATX) and the always groovy house stylings of DJ SHANI (The Groove Temple, Freedom Fridays, Girls Rock Austin – CHI/ATX).

    We’ve named this party "UNITED” because we believe in the power of #Solidarity & #Community under one common #Groove. We welcome everyone from ALL communities and always have representation from the #Disabled and #Queer communities in every event we produce.

    We maintain that our story did not begin with slavery, but with our families, traditions, cultures & music. We are the children of revolutionaries, intellectuals & innovators – those that make music what it is today and on February 22nd, we celebrate the power & influence we’ve made worldwide through our melodies and rhythms. Join us.

    RESPECT to our sponsors and media partners: Austin Black Pride, BossBabes ATX, FUSICOLOGY, Green and White Grocery, Treasure City Thrift, Hebert TAX Consulting LLC Consulting, JuiceLand, Bennu Coffee, East Side Pies, George Washington Carver Museum & Waterloo Records!!
