TBA on August 1st... Do you think Cults will try to cross over to the urban demographic?

I remember when TBA toured with Boyz II Men, ABC and BBD, the entire East Coast family.

I totally feel safe going to any of these shows, and leaving at dark when the show ends. Definitely won't get mugged on my way back to the subway.

12:03...you're a pussy. Go back to the upper east side or whatever shitty town you're originally from. I hope you do get mugged.

Stating the obvious does not make one a pussy. Denying the obvious like a smug idiot - while nevertheless knowing the truth - makes one a pussy.

Oh wait I'm sorry. I forgot it should be quite obvious everytime someone travels to Crown Heights they will inevitably get mugged. It's pretty much 100% chance of getting mugged. You're not a closet racist I swear...

Yes. Because a free concert and random travel are exactly the same thing, 1:11. Ya stupidhead.

Is it possible that I am 23 and have already outgrown you bunch of whining pussies? I think so. You all need to leave mom's basement just 30 minutes a week and interact with some actual people (and no, not the ones that charge $10/min with a major credit card)

I think all you BV shit-slingers need to "get lost" in Bed Stuy for a while and get "introduced" there. Might humanize you at the very least.

Feel free to stay home, 12:03, I'm sure you won't be missed.

Say what?

Wow, how PC we are. I am not a racist, but I will tell you that I don't go hanging out in Crown Heights by myself at night if I don't have to. Let's face it.. there's more crime in Crown Heights than say, Williamsburg. But I think that has a lot more to do with low income than it does with race. That's a fact that can be backed up with statistics. But with that said, I doubt there will be any crime or problems at any of the above shows.

http://projects.nytimes.com/crime/homicides/map. According to the map, there's more homicides in Bed-Stuy, Bushwick, and Crown Heights than in other areas. These are stats produced by the NYPD, as reported by the NY Times.

Those of you who decide to go, go and have a good time. Those of you who decide not to go then don't go. Why all the name calling? This is how mess get started. Now I would really like to go but I'm in a wheelchair and they don't have a bathroom suitable for me and my chair. In the past when I was able to hold myself much better I went to these concert and always had a great time. My favorite part is that they are FREE!!!
