Should I Stay or Should I Go?


After last year's disappointment, I swore that I'd never return to another Rock the Bells or Guerrilla Union event.  However, just like Michael Corleone in Godfather III, they keep sucking me back in.  This year's RTB lineup is pretty damn tempting.  Nas performing Illmatic (with Primo on the wheels), Raekwon and  Ghost performing Only Built for Cuban Linx, Blackmoon peforming Enta Da Stage, and the illusion of Lauryn Hill performing Miseducation is alluring enough to have me considering the possibility of donating more money to the incompetent people over at Guerrilla Union .  Remember, I only said "considering."  Believe it or not, a lineup like that wouldn't be good enough to get my $$ after last year's debacle.  But......the improved venue of the San Manuel Amphitheater which has comfortable seating (particularly for those willing to fork over extra $$ for VIP tix) might be just enough.  So, what do you all think?  Should I stay or should I go?

After I saw that they moved it back to San Manual that sealed the deal for me...I'm not going. You can expect a 1 to 2 hour wait to get inside, $4 for a small bottled water with no caps, as well as a horrible performance by Lauryn Hill. Also have seen those bathrooms? No urinals but a trough....that is some gay sh*t!! If they moved back to NOS I would definitely go but I'll never go to a show at San Manual ever. The only way I'll go if they add Rakim, De La Soul,Dilated Peoples & La Coka Nostra. Other than that Chang ain't getting my hard earned money.

Thats crazy, my experience at the San Manuel amphitheater for RTB 09 was very pleasant. You couldn't pay me to go back to NOS.
