To be honest, I’m not really a big fan of Valentine’s Day. The social pressure to consume and buy things for your person… and what if you’re single? Then what?
At least this year’s V-Day magically fell on a weekend so we can look forward to some awesome shows. So whatever your status, round up some people you love and choose one of these parties to check out, listen to some great music, and of course dance your face off.
What better day than B-Day, I mean V-Day, to celebrate one of the greatest couples of our time? Local DJs Flipout, Seko, Cherchez, Andishe and Lil India will be playing all the Bey and Jay hits you know and love till the wee hours of the morning. Roll up with your significant other all Drunk In Love or bring your single friends in hope of finding the Bonnie to your Clyde (or vice versa).
