Ja Rule + Ashanti Giveaway
Ja Rule & Ashanti – The king and queen of Murder Inc. will be performing live at the Joy Theater. Relive such nostalgic moments, belting out Ashanti’s “Baby” and Ja Rule’s “Put It On Me” plus many more classic hits. Doors @ 8P.

Dixie Chicks – The legendary country trio will be stopping in New Orleans during their DCX MMXVI World Tour. The North American run is kind of like their homecoming tour after their hiatus and performing out of the states in 2013. Singer Ellie King will be opening the concert. 7:30P.

Back to School Bounce Bash – DJ Jubilee will be spinning all the old and new school bounce hits upstairs at the Dragon’s Den. Starting at 10P, monkey on the stick while sipping $2 Monkey On The Stick shots. And the best part? NO COVER!
