Northside Festival

The Northside Festival kicks off today, Thursday, June 24th. We have more previews coming, but in the meantime here's a quick reminder post. The full music schedule is HERE. Films HERE. Badges and other show tickets HERE.

There are FOUR BrooklynVegan shows this year. There's the regular old BV Saturday night show @ MHOW with Memory Tapes, Dom, Twin Sister and Zaza (check out our the very unpopular interview with Dom that we just posted HERE). Then there's the back to back BBG shows happening the same night at Europa and Union Pool. And last but not least, Bill put together a "Week in Indie" show happening Sunday at Coco66... which we haven't posted about yet. Info on that is coming shortly.

Tonight, Thursday, brings the talented and highly entertaining Big Freedia to Public Assembly. Au Revoir Simone meanwhile are headlining a show at Warsaw. WAVVES (and Dom!) is also tonight. Thao and Mirah are at MHOW.

Beirut are not playing the Northside Festival, but Woom are. More coming soon.

Au Revoir Simone, Wavves/Pitchfork afterparty, Slow Club, Titus, Liars (or Mem Tapes-- torn), Parenthetical Girls late night, sleep late, then Keepaway or Wave Pictures. Not a bad 4 days.

Looking forward to Titus in the heat. Any bars over near the park that will be open early?

there's already a south by southwest. it's way more compelling than this and yet it still basically sucks.

cmj too.

is there any call for another one of these festivals where all these little bands play all these little shows at all these little clubs all at the same time?

waste of time

@12:04 who cares - lots of live music. Two words: Don't go

@12:04 is a whiner and a weiner.

Hey 12:04, did you know that SXSW and cmj both started as tiny things and grew into what they are now, over more than a decade? i'm hoping this will happen with northside.......because SXSW is my favorite week of the year and traveling down to texas sucks.....but CMJ is always in the cold. So it's good that northside is in the summer....maybe it will get bigger in the coming years and will be more fun. This year there aren't even any shows I want to see. But i appreciate the effort and i look forward to northside in the next few years.

northside needs to follow more closely in sxsw footsteps and offer some free shows.

but the bands don't get paid with free shows. that's the catch.

@3:21 there are several free shows. you just don't know what you're talking about.

but i agree that there's a lot of BS that comes along with all of these festivals. namely, that some really mediocre bands play multiple showcases, while other great bands aren't accepted at all. and no I am not bitter at not being selected, because I am performing. i just think there should be more checks and balances, and shit bands shouldn't play more than once.

Agree with the above. Doesn't make sense that a bunch of bands are playing twice, let's see some other shit.

Wonderful post and the location is beautiful and elegant in design and information and everything>>> to Favorites
Amazing is an enormous understatement. One of the best electronic shows I've ever been to and I've seen well over a thousand concerts. I had no idea Vladislav Delay was as good a drummer & percussionist as he is- fabulous and he kept everything swinging with a very unique style of playing. If you missed this you missed out big time...
