Where All My Zapatistas At?
So yeah, I'm headed out to NY for Rock the Bells. I'll be there all day today and Saturday and about half the day Sunday. Hopefully it doesn't suck balls. According to this guy I was talking to, it's supposed to rain this weekend. I could use my feet dry when I'm yelling, "Fuck you I won't do what you tell me!" God forbid my $15 Starbury shoes should get fucked up over something as questionable as live hip-hop.
I'll be staying in a classy five-star joint out by the airport, which is supposedly not too far from the place where the show will be, though obviously I wouldn't know one way or the other. I'm not sure what exactly I'm doing today or after the show Saturday. If you're going to be in town and you know of anything cool going on, hit me on the email. I'll have one of my swanky new free phones that does email with me.
After the jump is a small collection of videos from some of the groups I'm looking forward to checking out.
