There's no doubt that the folks at Batucaxe know how to throw a party, so their Monsoon Mania Summer Dance Jam sounds like a sure thing as far as fun and entertainment go this Saturday night. Tickets are $10, but basically that money allows the group to do all the great stuff they do all year long, including teaching kids and such. What else do you have going on, right?
