Northside

"Like last year, everything will be taking place in Williamsburg and Greenpoint because walking long distances is a drag when there are bands to see and beer to drink, we mean seriously. Us here at The L Magazine will be booking a share of shows on our own, but, for a large chunk of the festival, we've once again handed over curatorial control to some of the most tasteful, talented and dedicated folks in New York's independent music scene -- record labels, bloggers, promoters and more -- allowing them to showcase the bands they think you need to hear. The Williamsburg Gallery Association is again on board to highlight special exhibitions and other events at over 25 art galleries in the neighborhood. And to celebrate Northside's second year, we've invited a few of the city's biggest aficionados of independent film to curate four nights of New York-made movies at Brooklyn's new, as-yet-unopened film house-music club-restaurant-bar, indieScreen."
That message from L Magazine refers to the second annual Northside Festival, taking place in Brooklyn from June 24th through the 27th.

Music, art and movies will be happening at "30+ venues" and "dozens of galleries" over the course of four days in Greenpoint and Williamsburg. Like SXSW & CMJ, you can buy tickets to individual events, or you can get a badge which gets you in to everything that isn't already at badge-capacity. $50 badges are now on sale to those 21 and over. If you buy a badge, "Arrive to venues early - badgeholders are admitted on a first-come, first-served, one-out, one-in basis."

If you buy a badge you can take your chances at getting into one of the four Northside shows happening at Music Hall of Williamsburg (BrooklynVegan showcase included), Fiery Furnaces at Brooklyn Bowl, and WAVVES & Cloud Nothings at Knitting Factory. TONS more shows TBA, but the initial list of bands that will be playing has been announced (I'm especially excited to see The Wave Pictures, Fucked Up, Liars, Parenthetical Girls and Les Savy Fav on there in addition to what we've previously talked about) (and yes Titus Andronicus is on there).

I'll wait to see how many things I can't go to thanks to overlaps in the schedule until I say how good this is.

The Rabbits should slay

Titus Andronicus is going to be the band of summer 2010. Just you wait.

Posted by Anonymous | April 30, 2010 9:26 AM

Where and when are the Liars playing? Please do tell.

Posted by anonymous2 | April 30, 2010 10:03 AM

Finally a lineup that is actually good. That past incarnations of the festival only consisted of bands that were friends of the organizers.

Hopefully they will have single tickets and not just badges. I rather pay $75 and get insured entrance and not pay $50 just to wait in a line.

" That past incarnations "

you mean the ONE incarnation? Give me a break

Sorry, I was lumping in After the Jump festival since it is essentially the same thing.

Posted by Anonymous | April 30, 2010 12:27 PM

wasn't titus "band of the summer" like two summers ago when they played new york nearly every single day?

Posted by Anonymous | April 30, 2010 12:56 PM

After the Jump was absolutely NOTHING like Northside at all. you fail again.

Posted by Anonymous | April 30, 2010 1:32 PM

I dunno if Titus was band of the summer two summers ago, but they definitely are band of right now. The Monitor is so damn good, and thier live show is incredible.

"After the Jump was absolutely NOTHING like Northside at all."

Let's see:
only indie rock? CHECK
one badge for all shows? CHECK
all venues in WB/GP? CHECK
mainly local bands with no national following? CHECK

So please tell me, how exactly are these festivals different? And what exactly is your affiliation with the festival?

this should be free

Posted by Anonymous | April 30, 2010 2:39 PM

You need a badge to see all of these shows or do they sell individual tickets for performances or days? The site answers zero questions

Posted by Anonymous | April 30, 2010 3:18 PM

They sell individual tickets for every show.

Posted by Anonymous | May 3, 2010 9:43 AM

Northside has shows at a bunch of venues. After the Jump did not. Just at Music Hall.

Posted by Anonymous | May 3, 2010 9:44 AM

"After the Jump", more like "After the Joke". What the hell are you talking about?! After the Jump has been shows (when they don't get cancelled) at single venues for one day with shitty lineups. This is NOTHING like that.

Posted by Anonymous | May 3, 2010 9:56 AM

The 2008 After The Jump Fest had The Antlers, Ponytail, Health, Titus Andronicus, and Wakey Wakey, all of whom have sold out either Bowery Ballroom or Music Hall of Williamsburg in the last year.

WHEN IS THE PARENTHETICAL GIRLS SHOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

NEW YORK IS DEAD.

Siamese Dream and Mellon Collie were really good albums. Got them when they came out, still throw them on at times and think they're great. It saddens me when I hear bands from that era when I was a teenager and hear their new stuff and it's so clear how they've lost it, they sound desperate to recapture a sound/magic that they haven't had in 15 years (holy shit).... And then I realize that is not unlike a lot of us.
