DOWNLOAD: Dave Deporis - Slayer (MP3)

Northside Festival
Northside Festival

Northside is finally upon us! The festival kicks off today with an opening party at Studio B [tix], featuring performances by Brightblack Morning Light, Mariee Sioux and more.

Advance badges are still available for $45, but only until 5pm today, when the price will go up to $50 (still not too steep for access to over 100 shows, art exhibitions and events). Badges can be purchased through Brown Paper Tickets or at Northside HQ: 60 N 6th St between Wythe and Kent (hours and details here).

Some of the things you can do with that badge are visit the Black Bubblegum metal show at Europa on Sunday, visit the 1st-ever BrooklynVegan photo show at Music Hall of Williamsburg (from Friday 7pm until the end of Sunday night's Bill Callahan show), and stop by the BrooklynVegan showcase at Music Hall of Williamsburg on Friday night with performances by John Vanderslice, The Tallest Man on Earth, Olof Arnalds, AND..... the mysterious and super-talented Dave Deporis has been added to open the show (set time = 9pm).

Long-time readers know I've always been a fan of Dave's music, despite the fact that he STILL hasn't officially released anything that I know of, and definitely not since 2005 when he was the first artist to play the very first BrooklynVegan live show at Tonic in NYC. Check out an MP3 above.

Stay tuned for more Northside recommendations, coming soon. Dave Deporis videos below...

"it's CMJ II... isn't that just what we need!"

except it's not scattered all over NYC -- the fact that it's centered in one area in brooklyn is awesome b/c it'll be easy to get from show to show.

Saturday June 13 show a MHOW featuring Asobi Seksu was terrible.

Asobi Seksu need to get some stage charisma, get a new vocalist that can actually sing, and fire their current sound person.

It was too bloody freakin loud!! Completely counterproductive.

This show really sucked.

Been to about 15 shows at MHOW and I've never had a bad experience like this before. Normally the sound is great. This was annoying. A bunch of us left early.

A shoegaze band that plays too loud? Thank you for doing the right thing and alerting the rest of us to this shocking development. Someone could get hurt.
