Steve Gunn/John Truscinski Duo can't make the Zebulon hit, but the rest of the bands will be there. Loren Connors will be playing with Margarida Garcia as well.

What time did Lauryn Hill go on last night? She was supposed to go on after 10pm but I bet she went on around midnight!

Stupid people paying close to $100 for her to play what 70 min set?

P.S. Will Fugees ever get back together?

Do hipsters even care about Less Than Jake?

Although their last good cd was Hello Rockview....that came out what like in 1998?

it's kind of depressing to think people still go see Less Than Jake

Who is the "special guest" opening up at Bowery tonight? More nepotism, or is it an actual band?
