Formed over a decade ago by members of the Grammy-winning ATX cumbia crew Grupo Fantasma, Brownout is a hardcore Latin funk ensemble. Over the course of several adventurous albums, including especially Brown Sabbath (2014) and Brown Sabbath II (2016), the group has proven quite a bit more than simply a cool idea for a side project. In the live setting, the eight-piece group of uber-talented instrumentalists really excels, pushing its savory grooves and jungle rhythms past the point of a fever pitch. On Friday, Brownout will play a free show at Paper Tiger to celebrate the release of a new EP. As summer fully descends on San Anto, it’s hard to imagine a more deliriously joyful way to spend a Friday night. Free, 8pm Fri, Paper Tiger, 2410 N. St. Mary’s St., papertigersatx.com. — James Courtney
