What Do The Rock The Bells Festival and Irene Have in Common? They Both Control the Weekend!

    Comments:  | Leave A Comment

    Rock The Bells,  the yearly mega-nostalgia fest for Hip-Hop purists nationwide, returns to New York City this weekend (September 3rd) to captivate the hearts and test the stamina of the old-heads in and around the Tri-State that make the ferry trip to Shutter Governor’s Island.

    Last week’s Afro-Punk Fest (along with the other 90 outdoor music events scheduled) last weekend was unfortunately cancelled due to the critically under-rated Irene, so RTB, should prove to be a well deserved consolation.  The West Coast leg of the festival has gotten rave reviews, so you can be assured that the NY iteration sshould be 90x better.  How do I know? I don’t, but this is New York City, so we can make claims like that!

    Tickets are still available via the Rock The Bells website and the tentative set list is below.  Now understand, THIS IS HIP-HOP, so times, acts, maybe even venue are subject to change.  I mean, Lauryn Hill is involved! (I keed, I keed)

    We will be giving the live info via the GIANT Twittah, so be sure to follow.  And synchronize your Hublot watches (both of them if you are built like that) because there’s gonna be alot of scramblin around when you got Nas vs. Raekwon and Ghostface vs. Erykah on the menu.
