EVENT HORIZON ()

“Gonna wear no socks and shoes”

World Beat Spectacular • Wagogo • folk, Latin, jazz, World • Da Terra Meiga • Celtic folk, flamenco • Rev The Music • variety

Black Friday can a time to sit back and ponder the grand mercies of one's life while quiet music plays in the background, a roaring fire warms one and plates of Thanksgiving leftovers lull your desires and dull your senses—that is unless you're one of those Alibi-reading folks that likes to rock out on the weekend. Active listeners can have their pumpkin pie and eat it too on Friday, Nov. 24, at Burt's Tiki Lounge! The big island of a club—in conjunction with Mariposa Music—presents a World Beat Spectacular that will help happy eaters dance away some of those turkey sangwiches and tamales that might otherwise render one unconscious for the rest of the weekend. Your blood will bubble and your feet will frolic to the sounds of legendary Burque band Wagogo. They'll be performing with Da Terra Meiga (a Celtic/Flamenco hybrid) and multi-media psychedelic outfit Rev The Music. The musical feast begins at 8pm, y'all.
