After Mayer Hawthorne warms up the stage for Janelle Monae and Bruno Mars at the 1STBANK Center on Sunday, May 29, the Stones Throw heartthrob will be stopping by Summit Music Hall for an afterparty where he'll be spinning a handpicked selection of the finest funk. Party starts at 9 p.m. Bring your ticket stub from the 1STBANK show and get $2 off the $10 admission. Or just tell us what songs you think he'll play and we'll pick three winners at random to receive a pair of tix. Get your groove on.
