Ludacris, Common Playing (Kinda) Free Show... if You Act Fast
Usually Goldstar Events sells tickets to big name events for half price, but hey, with the economy sucking, why not give tickets away to this weekend's Hip Hop 101 Music and Arts Festival featuring Ludacris and Common, among others. $45 and Ticketmaster fees of free (well, it is $9 in their ticket fees)? They only have a 100 tickets, so we thought we'd warn ya. The Saturday night event is at the LA Sports Arena.
