BrooklynVegan is finally (well, it’s been a while) doing a show in Brooklyn. After a successful try at throwing an official CMJ showcase last year at Bowery Ballroom, I’ll be doing it again this year, but this time at Bowery’s sister venue Music Hall of Williamsburg. I couldn’t be more excited about the lineup. $15 tickets go on sale Tuesday at noon. A limited number of CMJ badgeholders will also be admitted to this show on a first come, first served basis.

The SammiesThe Sammies are a North Carolina band whose new album Sandwich became a slight obsession recently. I’m glad I didn’t judge the book by its cover and that they said yes to coming up and playing the show.

Emmy the Great is coming all the way from the UK, and bravely, like Bon Iver before her, holds the opening slot on the seven-artist bill. Stay late. Show up early. We’ll have drink specials (TBA).

More about the artists on this bill as the show gets closer. In the meantime, check out the video Joly took at the recent Phenomenal Handclap Band show at Tribeca Grand, below…

P.S. Also, stay tuned for other less-‘official’ party announcements.
