HAHA man, I'd love to see George Clinton, too bad I have a job.

I went to a show at Metrotech last year and the only people in attendance were special needs groups and old people.

And before someone decides to be clever, I am a special needs individual.

KID CUDI / ALOE BLACC / DJ IRIE / TAMARA SKY playing TERMINAL 5 on JUNE 13 - event includes OPEN BACARDI BAR. Tickets guarantee a general sense of disappointment and never getting that stupid "I Need a Dolla, Dolla, Dolla..." out of your head.

Being that I generally go out til 4am everynight, am I supposed to set my alarm so I can wake up on time to make it to a 12 noon concert? What rubbish!

Great show, Great energy.
No rainbow hair though for George.

I've seen some great performances there.If you work nearby or can get to a 12-2pm show,it's a good deal.Sure, there are some disabled and special needs folks there, but isn't good that the city provides events that they can enjoy.
