If you haven’t heard yet, we’re doing something pretty cool this coming Sunday. As part of this year’s Brooklyn based Northside Festival, Consequence of Sound will be presenting two separate showcases featuring six different bands, but both will be taking place on the same day (Sunday, June 27th), and at the same location (Newtown Barge Park).
So, ideally, this is how your day should go: Wake up in morning, grab a vegan omelet (it’s Brooklyn after all!), and then, around 1:00pm, get on the G Train and make your way to up to Newton Barge Park. (Note: as per the Google map below, it’s just north of McCarren Park. You’ll exit at the Greenpoint Ave. stop). Better yet, take the free Northside Festival Trolley! It will take you for Bedford Ave. & 7th to the Green Point Ave. stop and vice versa.
After walking over to the MetroPCS stage (centrally located in Newton Barge Park), you’ll be greeted by the pleasant sounds of an alt-folk afternoon, featuring ARMS, A.A. Bondy, and the one and only Elvis Perkins In Dearland. Around five, you’ll have time to go grab a slice of vegan pizza (it’s Brooklyn after all!), but be sure to hurry back soon, because around 6:00pm, our second show starts. This one will be equally awesome, but a bit louder, as the likes of Grails, Polvo, and Les Savy Fav (who will be debuting their brand new album!) are all set to perform. Plus, if that weren’t enough, you’ll be home in time to catch the second running of Next Food Network Star.
Seriously, what better thing could you possibly find to do on a Sunday?
Still, because we love you, we wanted to add more incentive to go. So, right now, we’re going to start giving away a whole slew of FREE TICKETS. Just send us an email with your name, address, which of the two shows you want to attend, and then one of the following:
— A one paragraph essay on why you want to attend.
— A picture of a Northside flyer that is currently hanging near where you live.
— Anything else that gives a good enough reason to give you free tickets.
Plus, if you do an extra awesome job, we might just give you tickets to both shows. So get writin’/picture takin’/printin’/etc.
In the meantime, find Sunday’s complete schedule, the aforementioned map of the venue, and ticket links to both shows below.
Four day badges, priced at only $50, are still available. Plus, because we love you even more than before, we are currently offering all CoS readers a 20% discount on badges. Just click here and enter code NORTHSIDE.
