Drink Up Buttercup @ Bruar Falls
Drink Up Buttercup

"After seeing somewhere around forty bands, eating exactly four amazing taco truck tacos, and drinking something like 40,000 beers, half of which were free and half of which I'm totally going to expense, the first annual Northside Festival has officially come to an end.

I believe I can speak on behalf of the L Magazine staff, as well as our sponsors and various partners, when I say thank you--to the people who bought badges, the press people who covered it, the pedestrians who stopped doing what they were doing so that they could watch bands perform on the street, the venues who trusted us with their spaces, the showcase presenters, and most importantly, to the nearly 350 bands that played--for making this entire thing an overwhelming success. [L Magazine]"

Mayanne Ventrice was running all over the place for the four dates of the Northside Festival. On the second day, Friday (6/12), she saw nine bands in four venues (Public Assembly, Spike Hill, Cameo, and Bruar Falls), stopped by Music Hall of Williamsburg for a peak at the BV photo show, and accidentaly caught Shilpa Ray playing with her band on the street. The rest of her pictures from that day are below...

drink up buttercup, with full consideration of their very silly name, were wildly entertaining at bruar falls.

Nine bands, four venues and not one of them noteworthy.

Congratulations Northside Festival, a truly smashing success.

'the great unwashed' was already a band. a side project of the brothers kilgour, you know, THE CLEAN.

these kids can't possibly know about how awesome The Clean were, or what a colossal indie faux-pas it is to called yourselves the Great Unwashed. i know for a rumoured fact that the bookers at Cakeshop wont book them on that fact alone, haha!

This was THE best festival ever! I ate cotton candy. I went on rides. I threw up. I went on more rides. I bought a balloon animal. I named it Tony. It poped. I want on more rides. I pooped. I drank a whole beer. Oh yeah, and I saw some bands or something.

Sometimes life is pretty cool.
