Beastie Boys tribute night coming to The Fire on August 7th
It’s been a rough few months since Beastie Boys founding member Adam Yauch passed away at the all-too-tender age of 47. Though his absence leaves a yawning void in our hearts, his legacy as MCA leaves decades of amazing, groundbreaking music well worth celebrating. And that’s precisely the point of the event the folks at The Fire have put together. Brooklyn rap-rocker Don McCloskey will host an evening of music from DJs, MCs, and a house tribute band including local artistsChuck Treece, Tom Spiker, Damon Bennet, and Travis Woodson. Admission to the 21+ event is $10; show starts at 9. More info is available on the Facebook event page.
