Show/Event Picks of the Week – 8.3.09
Got a few things for you to check out this week…I have a feeling this week is gonna be crazy…don’t say I didn’t tell you.
Tonight, Donny Goines will be headlining a show at Blender Theatre (127 East 23rd St.). Brought to you by Live Nation, he’ll be sharing the stage with Poison Pen, Esso, P. So, Loj and Monsters Ink. Your host for the evening will be none other than Emilio Sparks! Shoot, I’d go just to see him act a fool… (no offense, fellas)
This is a 16+ event, so bring out the youngins and show them what real hip hop is all about! Show starts at 8pm.
Also, if you’re in Brooklyn, Robin Thicke and Jazmine Sullivan will be doing a free show at Wingate Park as part of the MLK Concert Series. Show starts at 7:30pm, but get there early to secure a spot! Details here…
