As we mentioned in our Happenings This Week Post, the original winners of America’s Best Dance Crew (ABDC), the Jabbawockeez, just launched their new album Jabbawockeez MÜS.I.C. on March 1, which is now available on iTunes. It will also be available at the Monte Carlo Theater beginning Tuesday, March 15. Aren’t they a dance crew, not a music production team, you ask? Yes, but they formed a collaboration with The Bangerz to create this album, a progressive mix of electronic and hip-hop music. It consists of 14 original songs, including several tracks from their critically acclaimed show MÜS.I.C. at Monte Carlo Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, as well as their first single, “Robot Remains,” which climbed to the number seven electronic song on iTunes after its release in October 2010.
The weather’s finally starting to clear up! Here’s what’s happening in March — a little dance (Jabbawockeez!), a little music (Lea Salonga live!), and some dishes best served cold (courtesy of Korean hottie Won Bin).

When: March 1
By now, everyone knows the Jabbawockeez, the winners of MTV’s hit dance show, America’s Best Dance Crew, who have single-handedly elevated Asian Americans to the top of the hip-hop dance world. But do you know The Bangerz, the six-man, mostly Asian American DJ and production team that produces all the original music for all Jabbawockeez’ performances? Better study up. ‘Cause they’re about to hit the big time.
