Electronic pop music duo (We Are) Nexus will help celebrate Pride this weekend in downtown Houston.

The band will play on the Bud Light stage in front of City Hall at 12: 30 pm as part of the Pride Festival. This is the first year the festival and parade are being held downtown.

Composer Nick Gunn and vocalist Carmen Rainier formed the band in 2012. They exploded onto the scene in August 2013 with the debut of their EP "It Feels So Good," a cover to Sonique's hit by the same name. (We Are) Nexus' list of accomplishments is impressive, especially considering its age. The duo earned the #1 Breakout position on Billboards Dance Club Songs, a peak position of #14 on Billboards Dance Club Songs, iTunes Top 100 Dance and Billboards Top 50 Dance/Electronic Songs spots. With radio support and regular Music Choice rotation, the band looks forward to releasing its next single "They'll Never Stop Me" and a tour in support beginning in early 2015.

"We've played Houston before and it will be great to be back supporting equality," says Rainer. There's so much love and acceptance at pride festivals, we can't wait to join the party all and rock the house!"

Other headliners for the festival include Ginger Minj of Ru Paul's Drag Race, Big Freedia and Estelle. See the full lineup below.
