St Cecilias

In their own words:

Northside Festival is thrilled to announce special series of shows in beautiful St. Cecilia's church in Greenpoint.

St. Cecilia's is one of the most beautiful and vital churches in Brooklyn. We are excited to be working with this community institution and proud to say that St. Cecilia's will be an important part of Northside.

There will be four shows taking place at the most spectacular venue imaginable.

And the shows are:

Northside Flyer

June 16 -- Atlas Sound, with Special Guests. Doors at 7 pm ($15 advance, $17 day of show)
June 17 -- Woods, with Ed Askew, Magik Markers. Doors at 7 pm ($12 advance, $15 day of show
June 18 -- Eleanor Friedberger, Rebecca Gates, Ida, Spectre Folk. Doors at 6:30 pm ($15 advance, $17 day of show)
June 19 -- Mount Eerie, With Nicholas Krgovich (No Kids), Wyrd Visions. Doors at 6 ($12 advance, $15 day of show)
Tickets to all four shows go on sale Friday. Four-day, all-ages Northside badges are still on sale too (and those badges may or may not get you into these shows depending on capacity).

Some of these bands are new addition to the recently announced list of artists playing the Northside Festival.

Eleanor Friedberger meanwhile is playing shows with Matt in Fiery Furnacesincluding a couple in NYC tonight (5/4) and tomorrow (5/5).

Wow! That Church is absolutely gorgeous.

Northside grew up this year. Psyched. Too bad I'm missing Eleanor to see the GBV show.

I absolutely love that Church, it's gorgeous and Fr. Krishe is such a nice guy! That is so cool, Atlas Sound will, well, sound great!

>>Too bad I'm missing Eleanor to see the GBV show.

GBV will be done by 9:30 so chances are you can do both.

This is fucking rad.

"was that photo taken during an earthquake?"

No, that photo was taken on purpose so if you were to frame it and hang it on your wall, you'll have to tilt the frame off.

Bradford Cox is a festival whore.

Pass it on.

bradford is a genius, pass it on

Posted by Anonymous | May 4, 2011 12:51 PM

This sounds pretty good. What's the consensus, buy a pass or just go for a few individual shows?

Posted by Anonymous | May 4, 2011 1:02 PM

I'm buying a pass, and then GBV tickets to make sure I get in there.

^ This sounds redundant. Safe, but redundant.

i'm enjoying how psyched everyone is about the GBV show, considering last time they played here they received about eight million "they're old!" comments

Posted by Anonymous | May 4, 2011 1:22 PM

I think I'll by pass.

No, just the ghost of Charlton Heston.

Kranky showcase = White Rainbow? Announce the rest of the bands assgikes!!!

Posted by Anonymous | May 4, 2011 3:02 PM

This will only happen here once, too much PBR and indoor tobacco smoking as usual...

Posted by Anonymous | May 4, 2011 3:48 PM

Bradford Cox is average at best, people just think he's a genius because he looks like a freak, pass it on

Posted by Anonymous | May 4, 2011 3:51 PM

bradford cox has accomplished, at the age of 28, more than any of you non-talents ever will. enjoy your non-album and your non-tour, i bet it's going great!

Posted by Anonymous | May 4, 2011 4:02 PM

Hipsters will be leaving the show in droves, when they find out PBR will not be sold in the church

Posted by Anonymous | May 4, 2011 6:03 PM

hey, 4:02

what album and tour do you have?

Posted by Anonymous | May 4, 2011 6:22 PM

Ah yes, a proper venue for all of the hipsters to ponder: "On what day did the Lord create The L Magazine, and couldn't he have rested on that day too?"

^ I guess stealing 30-year-old Rob Reiner jokes is better than just saying "hummus" and leaving it at that? If you had to choose, I mean.

Posted by Anonymous | May 4, 2011 10:12 PM

^ No I disagree, simply saying "hummus" makes for a better joke.

Posted by Anonymous | May 4, 2011 11:14 PM

hummus.

mount eerie in a church is always amazing

Hummus man/woman is hilarious today

Posted by Anonymous | May 5, 2011 6:55 AM

Buying the pass will not guarantee you get into the most popular shows. You'd probably have to line up quite early with a badge to make that work.

Posted by anonymous | May 5, 2011 2:05 PM

I wonder how the church pews will look with vomit stains all over the backs? Praise the Lord!

Posted by Anonymous | May 6, 2011 6:28 PM

mt eerie in a church, that is all
