Questlove of The Roots at Brooklyn Bowl (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Roots

We just mentioned that Red Hot Chili Peppers will play a WFAN-presented show at Barclays Center on February 1, and since we last spoke it's been announced that the RHCP show is part of a number of pre-Super Bowl shows happening in NYC before the game happens on February 2 at MetLife Stadium.

A few of those shows happen on the Bud Light Hotel, aka a heavily-branded cruise ship in the Hudson River that will be hosting festivities for the weekend. One of those happens on January 30 with The Roots, Run DMC, Busta Rhymes and more guests TBA.

Another one happens on February 1 with the Foo Fighters and Zac Brown Band, whose new album was produced by Dave Grohl.

CBS also reports that for the week leading up to the Super Bowl, Times Square will be on lockdown: "Starting at midnight on Jan. 26 through Feb. 1, Broadway from 33d Street to 48th Street will be closed to vehicles. In addition, 41st Street will be closed from 9 a.m. to midnight."

The performer for this year's halftime show is Bruno Mars. All Bud Light Hotel concerts are listed below...

Yet another reason to avoid Times Square.

The Roots, Foo Fighters, Imagine Dragons, Zac Brown Band and Fall Out Boy?

That is the whitest crowd ever.

This isn't gonna just fuck up Times Square. It's gonna screw traffic in the entire surrounding area. Fuck this shit. The game is Jersey. Bother the East Rutherford residents!

Bruno Mars? Dude's got talent, but that's the weakest halftime show… ever?

I don't know what to do, when I look in her eyes I see love....but is it for me no, it's for him. I love everything about her, she's funny, smart, and she's the most beautiful girl I have ever seen. We laugh and we talk at school. But when it comes down to it...she sees right through me, it's so plain to see that she loves him, the way she looks at him, the way she smiles when she is around him, and the way she laughs at his jokes, which deserve a chuckle at best. Sometimes a feel like I a clown who can't wash off his makeup, like I feel I have to make her laugh to get her attention. And you know what I would sell my soul just to be with her for one day. I can't tell whether to just leave her alone or try to be just friends. And it's killing me on the inside. Every day I am not with her I get a little more hollow inside, but when I am with her it fills me up and gives me strength to carry on. So...should I hold on to what we've got, or is it just a wast of time?
