It's still Fashion Week, and that's also why Guns N' Roses begin their small venue tour tonight.

Jay-Z and Kanye West premiered a video for 2011's favorite party jam (that's not* "Midnight City") "Niggas in Paris." Cobbled together "Watch the Throne" tour footage, the video keeps all the frenetic stage lighting in tact, warranting a pre-roll epileptic warning. Check the video out below.

What else?

Go see Cate Le Bon at Maxwell's. She blew my mind at Merc last night. Her band's amazing. She's amazing.

@ME 4:27#2 - I concur! That craigslist add is Gold Jerry...Gold!

Posted by Anonymous | February 10, 2012 4:36 PM

427 that post must be fake. no one trashes a show that they are trying to sell tickets to - it's illogical.

plus tix are selling for $129 on stubhub so the guy could almost make his $ back. so either he's a troll or a complete idiot.

Posted by Anonymous | February 10, 2012 4:43 PM

Sounds like a show worth seeing but $129 for a ticket? Thats just stupid.

Posted by Anonymous | February 10, 2012 4:52 PM

uh who cares if it's real or not, that post is hilarious.

Roseland tickets below face

Posted by Anonymous | February 10, 2012 5:38 PM

Roseland tickets are above face now, actually.

The craigslist guy seems very pleasant. Life is too short to be angry.

Posted by Anonymous | February 10, 2012 5:48 PM

The craigslist guy is stupid. If he holds out until Wednesday, he'll make money.

Posted by Anonymous | February 10, 2012 5:50 PM

Actually you are wrong 5:47. None of the G N R shows have been above face for a couple of days now. I mean if you are an idiot who goes to SH (and don't wait till an hour or so before the show) then you deserve to be fleeced. If you went to CL you got em cheap and still can. Not to mention outside the venues prices are gonna drop even more. Laughing at you scalpers.

"The craigslist guy is stupid. If he holds out until Wednesday, he'll make money"

No he won't you clueless idiot. They put more tix on sale a few days ago and they are gonna put some more on sale the day of and will have some at the box office for sale that night. No one is clamoring for these Webster Hall tix. They are being gobbled up by scalpers who are gonne be left holding their dick in their hand.

5:52 - Actually, you are wrong. R0seland has not been below face. F@ce value is 96, and I haven't seen it dip below that. Everything else goes up from there.
T5 is way below f@ce, and will probably be a 20 buck get-in, night of.
Webster will be hot the night of, because $ellers will panic, and they'll blow out of their t1ckets in advance.

Posted by Anonymous | February 10, 2012 6:05 PM

plenty of Roseland below face.. $95, $90, $85, etc....

Posted by Anonymous | February 10, 2012 6:13 PM

remember that they go on late, so tickets will have even more time to drop in price....

I got a Webster Hall ticket on ticketmaster today. Also, Manitoba is opening the Roseland show. Is that Handsome Dick Manitoba by any chance?

6:05 you are also a clueless idiot. No idea what you are talking about. Fucking idiot stop commenting.

How were tickets outside? Cheap?

Posted by Anonymous | February 11, 2012 4:04 AM

OK, faggots like 9:52, etc.

How were the "new" G n' R?

Did they go on before midnight?

Did Axl punch any non-band member?

Were the police called?

Did they play Welcome To The Jungle?

Posted by Anonymous | February 11, 2012 9:23 AM

11:05, I was 6:05. I had extras, and had no problem getting face value for my t1ckets outside the venue. Took me literally 5 minutes to sell.

Posted by Anonymous | February 11, 2012 9:54 AM

4:04, at the time I was out there, tickets weren't cheap, but you couldn't make more than face unless you had VIP or Balcony tickets.

Posted by Anonymous | February 11, 2012 9:55 AM

9:23 - Yes, they actually went on at 11:30. They opened with Welcome to the Jungle, and played for close to 3 hours. Pretty much any song anyone would want to hear by GNR was played. Axl's voice sounded fantastic. The band recreates the sound perfectly, but they are faceless. My only negative criticisms were that Axl did not interact much with the audience, and he literally took a break every 30 minutes, while his very competent but faceless band would play an instrumental interlude. Otherwise, they sounded great, and it was a pretty solid show.
Handsome Dick Manitoba's band opened the show, and they were entertaining (as usual).

".... with a bunch of hired idiots whose names are all stupid nicknames like "DJ" "Buckethead" "Brain" and other shit like that."

priceless

When you have jammed with a dude named Bootsy, you're allowed to be called Buckethead or Brain. These are the rules.

Posted by goAt | February 11, 2012 1:25 PM


GnR was great. They hit at 11:30, started with Welcome To The Jungle and played for 3 hours. The crowd sang Happy Birthday to Axl, as well.

Black Onassis is the best new band of 2012. That show was AMAZING!

6:05 was right. Webster Hall (Ritz) tickets now going for 185 on StubHub.
