50 Kent

We hope we don't have to find out, but there is a Flash Flood Watch that "remains in effect until midnight EDT", right through the entire War on Drugs, Woods, Julianna Barwick show. Meanwhile, Northside Fest says "The show must go on!"

UPDATE: As of 6:30, IT IS RAINING HARD, but still no word on the show being moved or cancelled.

UPDATE 2: The War on Drugs is postponed until Sunday!

Beirut, Ratking and Malang Jobarteh play the same outdoor venue Saturday.

they need to move it (but won't), since it's going to lightning/thunder/pour from 8-10

just got an email from northside saying it's been moved to brooklyn bowl and open to ticket holders only (no badges) due to capacity.

But someone certainly made up "just got an email from northside saying it's been moved to brooklyn bowl and open to ticket holders only (no badges) due to capacity.

Why do you fools even bother to address the trolls trying to say it is moving to BK Bowl.

Why? Why? Why?

Though we would love to have this show at Brooklyn Bowl tonight, we already have two great shows so it is definitely not moving to Brooklyn Bowl.
