Eat Free Ice Cream and Listen to the New Beastie Boys
What a better way to enjoy the longest Monday of the year than to enjoy free ice cream while listening to the mellow funky goodness that is The Mix Up, the new album by the Beastie Boys?
In a deliciously and deviously cool way to get you to listen to their new collection of all-instrumental jazzy grooves that come out tomorrow, the three bad brothers you know so well have arranged for two listening parties to happen this evening here in LA. And while you listen you will be served free ice cream by two local ice creameries!
The listening parties will take place from 6pm-8pm at the following locations:
110 S. La Brea
Ice Cream provided by Scoops (which we reviewed in May)
3827 W Sunset Blvd
Ice Cream provided by Pazzo Gelato
