For those keeping count, BrooklynVegan will be at Music Hall of Williamsburg Thursday night, Public Assembly on Friday day, and Sunday night at Union Pool. Add to that list (as previously mentioned): Saturday day at Public Assembly. And for this one we teamed up with Converse to bring you the following stellar 100% FREE SHOW....

The date: Saturday, October 23rd, 2010
The time: noon-6pm
The place: Public Assembly (70 North 6th St)
the bands:

STAGE 1
12:00 Morning Teleportation
01:00 Ted Leo (solo)
01:45 Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.
02:30 Wild Nothing
03:15 Titus Andronicus
04:15 Big Freedia
05:00 Jamie Lidell
DJ sets by SUNCELEb

STAGE 2
12:15 Evan Voytas
01:00 S. Carey
01:45 The Crayon Fields
02:30 Heavy Cream
03:15 Dominique Young Unique
04:00 No Joy
04:45 Reggie Watts
05:05 Marnie Stern

That's sixteen kick ass (yes, Big Freedia is performing) artists (including the DJ) in six free hours (yes, Ted Leo plays at 1pm). But that's not all... We'll have free alcoholic beverages (sorry, this event is 21+) and free food. And free EarPeace ear plugs to the first 50 people through the door (a $14.95 value). Get there for:
* free EarPeace (while supplies last)
* free V-Spot breakfast burritos & empanadas (while supplies last)
* free Firefly Vodka + Bourbon (while supplies last)
* free Magic Hat beer (while supplies last)
* free Raw Revolution bars
No ticket or RSVP necessary. No badges. Just get there early and get inside. You won't need to spend any money, though we will have some schwag for sale to help raise some cash for Music Has Power (The Institute for Music and Neurologic Function). Moby talks more about what that is in a video we posted in our Friday party announcement.

Can't make it? We'll be streaming select sets live on Converse Radio. Tune in.

Converse is doing a lot lately to help support music, and has especially hooked up Brooklyn. You might have heard about this:

"Converse announced details for an unprecedented initiative that directly supports artistic creativity and the music community in a unique way through the opening of a new, state-of-the-art recording studio in Brooklyn, NY later this year. Converse Rubber Tracks will provide emerging artists with the incredible opportunity to record music in a high-quality studio alongside a team of experienced local engineers at no cost. Converse Rubber Tracks will provide a platform for new musicians and directly help them overcome one of the biggest hurdles in their career-affording studio time."
Musicians should apply for free studio time at the Converse Rubber Tracks site.

Stay tuned to @bvCMJ for even more CMJ news and updates than you'll find on BrooklynVegan.com.

Oh, and if you oversleep, you can also catch Ted Leo later that day at the WFMU Record Fair or in December at Terminal 5 with the New Pornographers.

Thanks to: Zach Jaeger of Tonally Dude Productions for the sweet flyer you see above, and to Vinny's Music for providing us with some sweet gear, and to Underground Press (who have their own day party on Thursday) for getting us some merch printed to help raise money for charity including screenprinted versions of the above poster that we'll have available at the show.

Posted by Anonymous | October 20, 2010 3:11 PM

So just to get this straight, you need a $450 CMJ badge to get into this, or is there some other BV badge?

Posted by Anonymous | October 20, 2010 3:23 PM

Hummus for Titus Andronicus. They'll need a big vat of it.

Posted by Anonymous | October 20, 2010 3:30 PM

All I can say is this... That I WILL be there and WILL be eating hummus.

Posted by Anonymous | October 20, 2010 3:31 PM

isreali hummus or palestinian hummus?

Posted by Anonymous | October 20, 2010 3:36 PM

if someone doesn't show up with some hummus, this will be a huge letdown.

Posted by Anonymous | October 20, 2010 3:40 PM

Wow, BV pimping unashamed for Converse.

Posted by bob | October 20, 2010 3:45 PM

Israeli hummus all the way....this show = hipster heaven....

Posted by Anonymous | October 20, 2010 3:49 PM

The best thing about these free parties is that in these tuff economic times it has been hard to purchase add-ins to blend with my chickpeas. And plain gets a little boring at times and all these free parties this week will allow me to make a few more exotic varieties such as: dill hummus, garlic hummus, and my particular favorite roasted turnip hummus.
Thanks BV!

rather than complaining about a sponsership for a *free show*, you should be investigating who got your face pregnant.

The shaking of those big Frieda butts really makes me miss my food processor... It burned out a few weeks ago and my diet has suffered tremendously.

Posted by Anonymous | October 20, 2010 3:55 PM

seriously, there needs to be some sort of acknowledgement of the annoying hummus phenomenon at these parties.

Posted by Anonymous | October 20, 2010 3:56 PM

maybe instead of stupid PR Converse will stop exporting jobs to slave labor markets and employ Americans.

Posted by nygrump | October 20, 2010 3:57 PM

Is CMJ almost over?

Posted by Anonymous | October 20, 2010 3:59 PM

Good to see Ted Leo still doing his thing... Didn't he claim that he was gonna retire a few months back and kick back by the fireplace with a bowl of hummus and chill?
Glad to see he is still playing regardless.

100% free 100% fun!

This show isn't free. You have to sell your soul at the door to the worst of corporate america.

Best lineup of the festival. Love the new "less but better shows" approach BV.

Posted by Anonymous | October 20, 2010 6:03 PM

I hope you love getting there 2 hours before the doors open and waiting in line, too.

450 capacity giving with a free show giving away alcohol? Oh yeah, that'll be a breeze to walk into.

Posted by Anonymous | October 20, 2010 6:15 PM

This is already at capacity. One in, one out with a line around the block.

Posted by Anonymous | October 20, 2010 6:23 PM

If you like Titus Andronicus, you need to check out the Gun Shy. A thousand times better.

Posted by Anonymous | October 20, 2010 6:32 PM

Meh, day parties are never at capacity before 2pm... don't worry.

Posted by Anonymous | October 20, 2010 6:41 PM

You people are delusional if you think this will hit capacity before even 3pm.

Posted by Anonymous | October 20, 2010 7:07 PM

hey 7:07, if i stick my dick up your ass, is that hitting capacity? no seriously, is it?

Posted by Anonymous | October 20, 2010 7:41 PM

If I stick my spoon in your hummus, is that hitting capacity? I will be doing that to everyone here on Saturday.
