4. WHAT WOULD YEEZY DO
Friday, January 26, 2018, 10:00 p.m. – 2:00 a.m.
DJ Aktive, Kanye’s former tour DJ, would know a thing or two about Yeezy himself. Ever been to Drake night?

5. THE ADULT 90’S PARTY
Saturday, January 27, 2018, 9:00 p.m. – 2:00 a.m.
The Finesse Remix video with Cardi B, got us feeling a bit nostalgic these days. Relive the best decade of all time (that’s debatable, but Millennials would agree) that had the best music. Come out to B-Side Complex, where there are 2 floors, 5 bars and food available. 90’s costume is suggested. Learn more HERE.

You’ve most likely seen her on IG roasting any and everyone. No one is safe when it comes to Jess Hilarious. Not only a social media celeb, she got her start on “Wild N Out.” She’s hitting the road for a stand-up comedy tour to give you a side of Jess that you have never seen. Learn more HERE.
