Guitar Center

Guitar Center will be opening a new location in Times Square on Thursday, August 7 at 7 PM. That'll give NYC's tourist mecca 28,000 square feet of new axes to choose from and to show off those new licks you learned when you try 'em out (remember, no Stairway). In celebration of that, The Roots will play next door at the free show at Best Buy Theater that day. Even though it's free, you still need a ticket to go, and there's a few places to pick one up on August 5 (details HERE). We also have two pairs to giveaway. One of those pairs also COMES WITH A LUDWIG DRUMSET (Questlove's signature 'Breakbeats' line), courtesy of Guitar Center. Here's what it looks like when Questlove plays it:

- The Roots
- Times Square
- Guitar Center

Well all of those things are just super awesome.

Yet another reason to avoid Times Square.

Also, Questlove ain't all that as a drummer.

3:39 - Say what you will about Guitar Center...or even the Roots...but ?uestlove is definitely one of the best drummers alive today.

3:51 - lineup has forever been changing, where have you been? In fact there has already been two different whiteboy band members in The Roots.

The Roots would play the opening of an envelope.
