Get Ready, Brooklyn, Northside Festival begins Tomorrow!

23 Jun

I have been excited about Northside festival since it first became publicized about a month ago. Northside is an awesome and ambitious fest bringing together more than 300 bands, artists and filmmakers for a 4-day festival spanning many different venues in Brooklyn from The Music Hall of Wburg to Greenpoint Waterfront and Pete’s Candy Shop to Glasslands. This is the fest’s second year, and though the lineup is not as impressive as last year’s (The Dodos, Hold Steady, John Vanderslice), the multitude of the bands is enough to impress any music lover.

Showcasing indie music, particularly NY-based, Northside is doing a great job of putting below-the-radar bands on the map. Some of the more well known musicians showcased in the fest are: Twin Sister, Fang Island, Memory Tapes, Woods, Mirah, ?uestlove, Titus Andronicus, Wavves, Cloud Nothings, Les Savy Fav, Fucked Up, Islands, Slow Club, Liars, The Babies, Fiery Furnaces and Darlings (which I previously reviewed at Bushwick Music Fest). For these being just a few of the headliners, this festival should not be missed!

Tickets for all shows and showcases can be bought seperately online or at the door and range from $5-20 each. The best thing about Northside, though, is that if you buy a badge (50 dollars, but only 40 if you enter the promo code LMAG) you get into all concerts, films, and galleries free, AND you get drink discounts practically everywhere.

I am handing my life over to Northside.. for the next 4 days at least.  Join me!
