Walkabout

The Bushwick Walkabout Festival, now in its second year, is this weekend with two nights of shows at Brooklyn Fireproof (119 Ingraham Street). Make sure and score some of the free Sixpoint beer at the venue all night while you catch Friday night's line-up (7/13) of Beast Make Bomb, Town Hall, Team Spirit, Slam Donahue, Viva Mayday, Shapes, Fast Years, Cavallo, and Penrose.

Saturday's line-up (7/14) features Xylos, Raves and Chimes, Pre War, The Yes Way, Lean Hounds, The Loom, Hollis Brown, Courtesy Tier, The Lost Revival, The Aviation Orange, The Glorious Veins, and The Skins. Tickets are still available in two-day pass and single night incarnations.

It's Festival Weekend for Team Spirit, as they spend Saturday afternoon (7/14) at South Street Seaport for the  4Knots Fest (set times have been announced).

For a look at last year's edition of the Bushwick Walkabout, there's a video you can watch below.

As the snow flies
On a cold and gray Chicago mornin'
A poor little baby child is born
In the ghetto

And his mama cries
Cause if there's one thing that she don't need
It's another hungry mouth to feed
In the ghetto

People, don't you understand
The child needs a helping hand
Or he'll grow to be an angry young man some day
Take a look at you and me,
Are we too blind to see,
Do we simply turn our heads

And look the other way
Well the world turns
And a hungry little boy with a runny nose
Plays in the street as the cold wind blows
In the ghetto

And his hunger burns
So he starts to roam the streets at night
And he learns how to steal
And he learns how to fight
In the ghetto

Then one night in desperation
A young man breaks away
He buys a gun, steals a car,
Tries to run, but he don't get far
And his mama cries
As a crowd gathers 'round an angry young man
Face down on the street with a gun in his hand
In the ghetto

As her young man dies,
On a cold and gray Chicago mornin',
Another little baby child is born
In the ghetto
And his mama cries

I've heard of a few of these bands, but I think the point is that you haven't heard of the bands. Free booze and the fact that its in my backyard is all I need.

"I am 22, moved to BK from out of state, and I am all about Bushwick."

I love Bushwick. I just moved here from LA and am impressed so far. Much different from California.

The Bushwick Walkabout Festival was great. I thought unlike most people that the the bands playing were good. People these days are too picky.
