The sight lines are great at this venue but the sound - not so much. Also, it was idiotic that The Roots were not the headliners vs. Gym Class Heroes.

The show was hot. My only complaint is that the Grove's PA was set up without center speakers so being front & center meant you were listening to the show through their stage monitors.

Description

Melding elements of rap, rock, R&B, and funk into one cohesive and melodic sound, upstate New York’s Gym Class Heroes have diverse appeal based on their impressive musical dexterity. Often touring with indie rock and pop-punk bands, they don’t fit comfortably into one specific genre; the quartet’s music is rooted in traditional hip-hop, but features live instruments instead of looped samples or beats. The Roots hail from Philadelphia and are famous for a having a jazzy, eclectic approach to hip hop which includes live instrumentation. The current members of The Roots are Black Thought (MC), ?uestlove (drums), Kamal (keyboard), F Knuckles (percussion), and Captain Kirk (guitar).  The band tours extensively, and their live sets are frequently hailed as the best in the genre.
