why even tell us about stuff like this when it's just another subsidized NYU only show? I'd understand if it was like the Shrinebuilder thing where you could hustle your way in but, maaaaaaaaan

I'm a grad student at NYU and I've been to a couple of these shows. Makes me feel so old every time. Plus, no booze! At a fucking bar. What the fuck is that about? Don't be lazy: ID people and give out wristbands.

Major Props to FlyLo for the free shows in NY

FlyLo is definitely dubstep, or the very least his sound is extremely influenced by it.
