As previously mentioned:

The annual Crest Hardware Art Show runs from June 30 - August 31 and kicks off this Saturday (6/30) with Crest Fest 2012 which goes from 1 - 7PM and features a live music stage, two DJ booths, plus local, creative art, and food vendors. Bands performing include Aabaraki, Grey Sky Appeal, Hard Nips, PitchBlak Brass Band and Workout and DJ sets are by Petey Complex, Lucas Walters, Dom Leon, King Cut, Peter Hale and Krunk Pony. The show is free and all ages.

Crest Hardware is located at 558 Metropolitan Ave Between Lorimer and Union in Williamsburg. This year's Art Show will include "100+ works from various artists of different mediums. The art will be installed contextually throughout 10,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space, including a 5,000 sq ft urban garden...All art is about/made with/or inspired by hardware." Flyers and posters are at the bottom of this post.

Speaking of things happening on June 30 sponsored by Converse Rubber Tracks (which Crest Fest is), White Rabbits are playing a free show at Music Hall of Williamsburg Saturday night

Flyers reposted below.

4th of July is coming. Here's where to watch the NYC fireworks.

Moonface, who plays Bowery Ballroom tonight, made a new video earlier this month for "Faraway Lightning," off his new album, Heartbreaking Bravery. Watch that below.

How packed do you think the free tune-yards/ecstatic music festival show at world financial center plaza will be tonight? Says it starts at 7pm, but do you think I need to arrive early? Never seen a show there and don't know if they have a capacity limit.

I am going to fart all over LIT! I'm making special chili for this evening!

Posted by Melvins Guy | June 30, 2012 11:03 AM

Lit always smells like farts.

Saw Thurston and his new band in Denver last night. While I wasn't a huge fan of his latest Beck-released album, this new band was loud and tight. Lots of noise and rock. Some 12-string strumming from TM, but mostly electric. The Matador release later in the year should definitely be something to check out.

Actually farting would probably improve the smell at Lit.

Posted by Stinky | June 30, 2012 11:49 AM BV listings become less and less reliable.

And ”as you like it” at Joe's pub? Common man...

There is no air conditioning at Lit. Be prepared.

ObamaCare and RomneyCare are not exactly the same. RomneyCare covers abortions.

Lit Basement smell would make a great aftershave.

I would like to see Melvins at Irving Plaza tonight

Posted by Anonymous | June 30, 2012 12:23 PM

^ I would like you and Magic Mike to go get me a vegan cupcake from babycakes. upon your walk back, stop by that cafe on Orchard and get me an iced-coffee where they use coffee ice cubes so it doesn't fuck up your drink when they melt. Then, finally, I will kick your sorry ass over to Williamburg where you will fetch me a medium-rare Billyburger while I lay out at the new pool, bitch.

I like to fart in small venues and giggle.

Wards of Merkin hosted by Bobby Tisdale is happening at St. Vitus prior to the Genesis Breyer P-Orridge show. Doors at 7:30pm, show at 8pm sharp. Superb, secret line-up dudes!

Posted by Klaus Kinski | June 30, 2012 2:11 PM

Did Riggins play keyboard for Crucifictorious?

12:28 is wearing 2 scarves today in honor of the sweltering temperatures, as well as an ironic "Gas, Ass Or Grass" trucker hat with his purple velour tuxedo jacket. You work it, girl!

People, people, people ... I understand the need for partisan bickering because this is BV and that's how everyone acts. But, if I may say, I'm feeling upset over the loss of Hollywood's GOLDEN COUPLE, that is, TomKat. So please, everyone, lend me your ears and hear em when I ask you to shut the fuck up for one moment. Thanks.

From Gothamist: "Lifeguards at McCarren pool were attacked by an unruly crowd and the pool had to close to restore order."

are you kidding me?! seriously?! one day after that damn multi-million dollar pool opens up, a bunch of jackass kids can't stop from fighting themselves and then injuring a lifeguard?! fuck them and the bus from ohio the rode in on.

and yes, that is why brooklyn can't have nice things.

big sad face. :(

Posted by Anonymous | June 30, 2012 7:11 PM

I'm sure somewhere there was a nice office pool, ahem, yeah, pun intended, on how long it would take for the first asshole fight to break out among little brats. It's equally hilarious and unbelievably sad that they can't behave out on their own. I blame them, their parents and the terrible music being created by today's youth like Lana Del Ray and A$AP (I wish I could be an MC) Rocky.

7:11 - just goes to show you shouldn't cast pearls before the swine, or give a multimillion dollar pool to a bunch of fucking apes

Posted by Anonymous | June 30, 2012 7:30 PM

Hey anyone know if that sausage and the hipster got it on last night? Sounded like a whole lot of teeth wuz gonna be coming out. That's if they were not just full of shit, which they probably both were.

Posted by Anonymous | June 30, 2012 7:35 PM

^ the hipster probably won, due to the energy giving phyto-nutrient rich chickpeas he ingested prior to the brawl.

Laurie Anderson on stage at Celebrate Brooklyn in her mad scientist lab coat taking an 8 bar tribal dance solo accompanied by the African talking drum = you will never see that ever again in this life = wins the night

Posted by Anonymous | June 30, 2012 10:48 PM

^You might be right about the never seeing that again statement.

The proper response though is not "wins the night" because clearly that would be insane. It is more like "who gives a flying fuck" No one with even a modicum of taste ever cared to see that anyway.

Posted by Anonymous | July 1, 2012 12:35 AM

^I would rather see that than stay at home and whack off to public access cable like you, you circus freak.
