FESTIVAL NEWS: Rock The Bells 2008-Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, Mos Def, Spank Rock-On Sale 5/17

Rock The Bells may just as well rebrand itself the Reunion Fest, considering last year's landmark Public Enemy and Wu-Tang performances, and the sight of Mos Def sharing the stage with Blackstarr collaborator Talib Kweli. And now this year the bad-ass fest is boasting A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, half the members of Wu-Tang again(!) and special guests, The Pharcyde. Dang! Is it worth trekking all the way out to Jones Beach? Well, um... yeah. You better believe it is.
