THIS WEEK! TWO VERY SPECIAL EVENTS!

February 17, 2009

Shouts to all the competitors involved, especially fellow placeholders Tasc, Jedi, and Barbi for throwing down the heat and making a dude work hard for the money.

But in the end, it was Octopus Lounge’s own who came through with a wide arrange of music to keep the crowd wildin’: from New Kids to Jim Jones, Bee Gees to GB (Garth Brooks, that is), and Herve’ to Rupee. Big respect to every guy and gal that lost their voice in support of the kid. You are definitely not forgotten.

Free Mix CD giveaways all night. Grab yourself a copy.

Bask in the revelry, and roll with the winners!

and then on Saturday…

FETEING TWO OF MY FAVE GIRLS IN THE WORLD.
ALSO FEATURING THE LIFE OF THE PARTY – TABOO, ON THE MIC!
ARRIVE EARLY, FOR GOD’S SAKES!!!
GUARANTEED TO BE THE BUN DOWN!!!
