No L train from Brooklyn to Manhattan this weekend, so these shows will be full of only WB hipsters.

But it's not like many people have even heard of any of these bands anyway.

Yeah, I've never heard of Grand Wizzard Theodore, the guy who invented scratching on a record and is widely regarded as the greatest beat juggler of all time. I definitely don't want to see him needle drop blindfolded or anything.
