When: Wednesday, October 28, 2009 7:00 PM
Where: Starland Ballroom, Sayreville, NJ
Ages: All? But shouldn’t be.
How Much: $40, but you know Ticketmaster, so that means $50 and parking is $6

When: Thursday, October 29, 2009 9:00 PM

Why you should go: CD release party for Cormega’s New Album “Born & Raised”. For fifteen bucks at the door and all those guests, this would spice up anyone’s Thursday night.
Think it over with this new video from Blue Scholars about Hawaii. And watch Sabzi eating throughout the whole video.
