ROCKONRAVE: Throw them suckers off the roof

Yes, if you are wondering whether or not ROCKONRAVE features rock bands and rave DJs mixing it up in a single 2-day music fest on the rooftop of a popular residential mall, then yes, you are spot on. Brownie points should be given to the organizers for daring not only to be so darn silly but also to be so darn obvious, in this day and age where everyone's trying to not show their underwear or their boobs on TV. Oh wait, I got mixed up. That was another time.

Rooftop gigs are always fun. I once went to this show where the crowd would throw any band they did not like off the roof. The music got better as the night progressed. Good concept.
