HOW TO GET THERE:
Subway - Recommended Directions:
F train to York Street. Emerge from station and turn left. You are now on Jay Street. Walk up Jay Street, turn left on Sands, walk down the hill and turn right on Navy Street. The park is a 1 block from there on the left. Use the BQE as a guide.

From the Manhattan Bridge:
Stay in the right lane on the bridge and exit toward the BQE. Stay right as you exit. Turn right on Sands and turn right on Navy. The park is a block from there.

From the Brooklyn Bridge:
Stay in the right lane on the bridge and exit toward the BQE. Stay right as you exit. Turn right on Prospect Street. When you get under the Manhattan Bridge, turn right on Jay. Turn left on Sands and turn right on Navy. The park is a block from there.

From 3rd Ave., Brooklyn:
Cross Atlantic, then cross Flatbush. The Brooklyn Academy of Music is on your right. Take first left on Ashland Place. Follow Ashland, which turns into Navy Street, under the BQE. When you emerge from under the BQE you will see the field on the right. Field 2 is the closer to Navy Street.

On Foot
(I am told that it can be done) across the Brooklyn or Manhattan Bridges from Manhattan, or up Tillary Street from Cadman Plaza in Brooklyn.

If Ninjasonik wasn't on the bill, I'd go.

Man I would love to see this as a touring festival. Amazing line up. The Bad Brains are my favorite band of all time. Love 247-Spyz as well, remind me of the late 80's funk metal era.

"this is not free anymore? =["

Paid show = less people = dedicated fans = win

What's the lineup for 24-7 Spyz nowadays?

Posted by Anonymous | June 7, 2010 2:45 PM

will vice security be there? i was able to sneak into the halloween show, so i hope so.

Sounds very interesting. Too sad that I am not able to see them, as I am too far away. However, it was nice to read about it and I will follow them. Regards

Posted by full metal ova | June 7, 2010 3:05 PM

this would be great, but i'm sure Bad Brains will cancel and/or not show up, so i'm gonna take a pass!

Too bad it's the same weekend as Northside.

Ah Jermaine Rogers and his cute little rabbits.

too bad that the Bad Brains haven't played a good show w/HR since 1986

Free shows have too many casual fans and lookie-los. Real fans pay for a ticket (unless it is expensive, this show is not)

Death (from Detroit) should be on this bill.

Posted by Anonymous | June 7, 2010 7:55 PM

lol @ Bad Brains. I saw them a few years ago and while the band was great and playing a lightning speed (almost TOO fast), HR was on another planet and mailing it in.

True dat @ 3:54....

Not much "punk" on that list.

Posted by JoJo Turner | June 8, 2010 1:37 PM

I'm really excited for this show. Mos Def is also going to be at this show. Bad Brains is one of my all-time favorite bands and I know they will put on a good show

Posted by Anonymous | June 22, 2010 2:05 PM

Bad Brains is definitely playing.

I heard HR can, on occasion, be a lot more animated of late. Even did a backflip at a recent Arizona show.

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.
