We knew it was coming, but just realized that new Park Slope/Gowanus venue Littlefield opens this weekend with two nights of free shows! First a little info on the venue from their website:

littlefield is a new performance and art space in Brooklyn’s Gowanus neighborhood nestled between Park Slope and Carroll Gardens. Housed in an old, 6200-square foot warehouse, littlefield merges the Gowanus’ industrial past with an organic, eco-friendly future. Green elements include a landscaped interior courtyard, sound walls formed from recycled rubber tires, a bar constructed of salvaged bowling alley lanes, and energy supplied by wind power. Future projects include a greywater system and a landscaped roof, which will reduce littlefield’s footprint to virtually zero.

I’m curious enough to go just to check out the space, but both of these free shows look pretty good and would actually be worth paying for. Tonight (5/22) features TWII-approved bands Golden Triangle and Sisters, plus Toronto post punks Little Girls. The latter have records out de rigur labels like Paper Bag, Mexican Summer and Captured Tracks, which might be enough to picque your interest. Personally, I dig that gothy, garage-y sound (more Blank Dogs than Crystal Stilts in this case) which you can hear for yourself — there’s a Little Girls MP3 above.

Saturday’s (5/23) free show features Brooklyn duo The Hundred in the Hands who you may have seen back in March opening for Handsome Furs. THITH features former Boggs frontman Jason Freidman and Elanore Everdel who was a touring member of the Boggs and has sung with TV on the Radio. Their sole single to date, “Dressed in Dresden” was produced by Chris Zane (he did Passion Pit and Harlem Shakes’ new albums) and sort of sounds to me like Au Revoir Simone being remixed LCD Soundsystem. It’s a good track, and you can download it (and the dubby “Undressed” mix) via the link above. Sharing the Saturday night lineup are fellow Brooklynites Cruel Black Dove who swipe more than a little from early-’90s club/goth, and if you like Curve and/or Garbage you might find them appealing. You can download a couple tracks at RCRDLBL and watch a video, and check out the flyer (with more show details), below.
