Some might say that the Killeen/Harker Heights area is seriously lacking in the live music department, especially considering the huge surge in the popularity of electronic music, but that is all changing. No longer will you have to drive to Austin or Dallas (or beyond!) to enjoy the sights and sounds of the region’s hottest DJs mixing top tracks from Europe and the States because there is a brand new scene emerging right here in the heart of Central Texas.
If you haven’t heard of Electric Hippy yet, don’t worry because you will! This energetic crew has the drive and talent to grow a local music revolution. The proof is in the images from their most recent show, the Hippy Trap Festival, where our very own mix master, DangerClose (aka DJ Mark S), headlined an incredible show at Whiskey Creek Saloon. Not only were the lights and sound system outstanding, but we had awesome bartenders who came out to showcase their talents - it was the first time I had ever seen someone shoot a fireball out of their mouth to light up a set of drinks! Of course, security was top-notch to make sure everyone had fun in a safe environment and PitLickers BBQ provided delicious food to keep our energy up.
Over the next few months, Electric Hippy will be touring Central Texas to bring the heart and soul of electronic music to the region. If you enjoy music of any genre (hip-hop, top 40, house, dance, rap, etc) you are going to love being part of the growth of the Killeen music scene. Be sure to visit their website, Facebook page, and Instagram feed to stay informed of upcoming shows and events. If you haven’t subscribed to our VIP list yet, be sure to sign up and we will send out details in our monthly newsletters!
