BA2014_14x10

My 5th Annual Awards show, The Burgie Awards 2014 is this Saturday and we’ve got a great show lined up for you.

There will be DJ Sets from AfroBeta & Pinchadiscos 305, Live music by Los Bastardos Magnificos & the Osceola Brothers Band, Live Art by Jeff Dekal, Nate Dee, Nomiie & Attack Brian.

If you’re hungry there will be 25 great Food Trucks serving up the grub and my friends at Funky Buddha Brewery will be there too serving up some Craft Beers.

The Awards portion of the event will get under way at 7PM and is hosted by my pal, radio personality Danny Rivera.
