Because Times Square was just too sedate and quiet, it's getting a 28,000-square-foot Guitar Center (218 W 44th St between Seventh and Eighth Aves), perfect for teenage tourists who want to keep practicing "Smoke on the Water" while on vacation. To celebrate the store's August 7 grand opening, Tonight Show house band the Roots are playing a free concert at the Best Buy Theater the same night. Aside from providing the soundtrack to pretty much every viral late night clip, including "Slow Jam the News" and "The History of Rap," the Roots have eleven great albums to their name and a reputation as one of the best live acts in hip-hop, and drummer Questlove has rightfully assumed his place as one of the genre's elder statesmen.
