"The problem with GnR is that they suck. The songs suck. Even when they were in their prime they sucked. Remnants of an era of misogynistic sunset strip garbage. Bros who dressed like girls but still acted like high school jocks.

Ok, so they're booked in NJ at 8pm, just 6 hours before they'd be playing Roo. Wait, 7 hours since Roo is gmt. Seems unlikely. BUT, if you look at their site they are playing a free festival in Brooklyn this month...PUT ON BY SUPERFLY..............hmmmm
I'm sure they're a fine and entertaining act. I have no doubt that's why they were booked for the festival (and why they were booked for the Great GoogaMooga). But, there's ZERO way this band is playing a 2-hour slot in one of the major tents. Those tents are designed to hold upwards of 30K - no f*cking way do they put a band in there that will draw maybe a thousand people. If they did, the other stages would be overflowed beyond belief.
Yeah, see the only thing is, they ARE currently scheduled to play just that. I wouldn't be surprised if they got moved, but I can at least feel the pain of those who are at least a little bit upset/concerned. I will be at GZA so I have no particular issue with this, but it does suck that if you happen to not like hip hop, your other choices are the Pedro Martinez band and some fucking Van Halen Tribute.
