^^that's a general time slot, with tortoise hovering around 10. are they going to pull some shit and play for like a half hour at 11:30? that would blow.

You've been quoted 3:04 on http://memeparty.tumblr.com/.

WHo would've thought that comments here could be used as points of reference.

the beets are those guys who play the Get A Life shows while they play, right?

The Beets show was stopped by the NYPD. They said the neighbors had been complaining about the noise all day. The cops came in, got on stage, and turned off all the Beets equipment as they played. Hopefully someone got some pix?
