VIRTUAL TUESDAY NIGHT RECORD CLUB: Bruce Springsteen: The River

We have decided to continue with Record Club in virtual format using the ZOOM app. When you register you will be provided the meeting link to join the conversation. It’s just like book club but with albums! With new advances in technology, the way we consume music through our devices, apps and on demand streaming services like Pandora, Spotify and iTunes is making the idea of the “album” as an art form extinct. Get together with other music enthusiasts on Tuesday nights to discuss some of the greatest records of all-time! Listen to the album beforehand and then come prepared to discuss. This event will feature Bruce Springsteen: The River.

Free and open to the public, but registration is required.

Comedy Night with Ian Lara

Online

Ian Lara is really just a regular guy from Queens, New York. He started Comedy right after college because he didn't feel like going to Law School and he's loved every second of it. Usually you can catch him performing every night in some of the best and worse shows in New York City, or he's on the road at a club or college near you. Ian Lara will probably be a household name but really all he wants is to get big enough where he can wear those big hats Pharrel wears to awards shows.

Presented as part of Hispanic Heritage Month at Monmouth University
