NORTHSIDE OPEN STUDIOS

Greenpoint Open Studios is teaming up with Northside Festival this year to bring you NORTHSIDE OPEN STUDIOS, a four day event celebrating a burgeoning art scene in Greenpoint and Williamsburg, Brooklyn. As artist studios and exhibition spaces continue to emerge in the neighborhood we hope to facilitate the growth of a thriving art community.

Registration is now open and we are encouraging artists working in all mediums to register online by May 15th. There is a Meet & Greet on April 26th 7:30pm at Brooklyn Brewery located at 79 North 11th Street and we will discuss registration, programming, and any questions. It is very important that artists join us in the meeting and get to know each other and learn about NOS over a complimentary free beer! Our goal is to reach 300 participating artists who can take advantage of the 10,000 brochure copies that will be widely printed and distributed throughout brooklyn, not to mention a vast opportunity for viewership and attendance.

Who?

Posted by Anonymous | April 27, 2011 2:53 AM

Theophilus London is so amazingly unimpressive. They'd better find a bigger venue for him to not bowl people over in.

Posted by J | April 27, 2011 3:08 AM

so basically like any other day in Brooklyn?

Posted by Anonymous | April 27, 2011 6:27 AM

yeah GBV, Beirut, Iceage, all play Brooklyn every weekend. Idiot.

Posted by Anonymous | April 27, 2011 7:13 AM

would someone please let the festival organizers know they are simply warming up a cold corpse here?

Posted by Anonymous | April 27, 2011 8:19 AM

Posted by Anonymous | April 27, 2011 8:52 AM

and free donuts

Posted by Dancing Dunkin Danny Donuts | April 27, 2011 9:22 AM

not to be all "last years line up was alot better" but last years line up actually was alot better.

Posted by Anonymous | April 27, 2011 9:23 AM

I don't care about the rest. The GBV show with those openers will be the most talked about show of the year.

Posted by Anonymous | April 27, 2011 9:37 AM

^ really? c'mon i love guided by voices and am not afraid to admit that wavves and surfer blood have good songs. but show of the year? you're INSANE.

maybe it's just because i've seen the classic GBV lineup twice, but you're just silly

Posted by Anonymous | April 27, 2011 9:44 AM

I missed the classic shows last year. I think this show will kill. What outdoor show will be better? And LCD at MSG just doesn't cut it for me. Sorry.

Posted by Anonymous | April 27, 2011 9:54 AM

GBV show could be second best of the year after LCD!

Posted by Anonymous | April 27, 2011 10:08 AM

It'd be nice if we commented about somebody other than the token 5 or so bands that get tossed back and forth here.

Posted by Anonymous | April 27, 2011 10:16 AM

Iceage are the hardest rockin' tweens in the business. Psyched about that show. Dry the River is sick. I only know about 20 of the bands-- but that's the point of this kind of festival-- to bounce around.

Check out http://DISTRO.fm/Northside to listen to music from artists performing at Northside Festival. (3 full hours of music...)

Posted by DISTRO.fm | April 27, 2011 12:11 PM

I thought Frankie Rose got rid of the Outs. Is her backing band now also called the Outs?

Posted by Anonymous | April 27, 2011 12:37 PM

Remember last year it was Frankie Rose and Oats. Did anyone catch that on the Northside posters? This kind of event is SO much more fun than sitting in some big ass venue or even being stuck in beer pens at an outdoor show.

This fest still sucks

Dunkin Danny will be handing out free coffee and donuts throughout Williamsburg for the duration of the festival. Listen for the boombox blasting a bootleg of the LCD MSG show.

i can't wait for this, i'm sure it's gonna be great.

Posted by Anonymous | April 27, 2011 5:17 PM

I'm gonna tell you this...As much as GBV have been milking this reunion, I'm betting this is one of the last times we're gonna be able to see them with the classic lineup and cry our knives away. Most of the summer shows are predictable. I don't think you could've guessed GBV would play with Wavves and Surfer Blood, that's kinda sick really.

Posted by Anonymous | April 27, 2011 8:27 PM

Danny Donuts wouldn't get me here, but Harry Hummus would.
