Continuing with our plot to take over the world, today we announce our plans to invade the hipster capital of the world, aka Brooklyn, later this month. As you may know, the L Magazine-presented Northside Festival will return for its second edition between June 24th and 27th. Lots of great bands are playing, including Titus Andronicus, Liars, Les Savy Fav, Fucked Up, The Fiery Furnaces, Wavves, and Thao & Mirah among others.
To help cap off the festival, we’ll be hosting a Sunday afternoon showcase at the outdoor MetroPCS stage (Newtown Barge Park) featuring two of folk music’s best acts: Elvis Perkins in Dearland and A.A. Bondy. So, grab a beer/soda (it’s an all all-age event!) and come chill under the sun/begin to recover from the mayhem of the previous three days. This is one of those deals where you just let it all soak in. No real energy required.
Doors open at 1:00pm and you’ll need either tickets, priced at $15, or a Northside badge to get in. Said badges are currently available for only $50 and will not only grant you access on a first-come, first-served basis to every Northside music, art, and film event but also a ton of drink specials and discounts at local restaurants and bars.
