Rocksteady Soul BBQ Haji Lane Street Party! (Oct 15)

Rocksteady Soul BBQ, a music street party that’s heavy on the soul with zero percent chance of a barbeque (really, there isn’t going to be any food, but if you’re feeling famished, you can always head to Bergs across the street which serves up some mean burgers), is back again! Boogie down to some disco, soul and house tunes as Tommy Rocksteady (one of the founders) and My Hero take over the streets of Haji Lane. More details on the DJ line-up are still in the works.
