Brooklyn Night Bazaar 2011 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Brooklyn Night Bazaar

The Brooklyn Night Bazaar, a place to do your holiday shopping, eat and listen to music all at the same time, returns to its warehouse location (45 North 5th St.) in Williamsburg this winter, and is again hosting shows like they did last year (though BrooklynVegan is not involved this year).

The holiday bazaar is open on Friday and Saturday nights from November 23 to December 22, from 6pm to midnight. A lot of the music lineups are still TBA but confirmed bands so far include The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Black Dice, Kyp Malone of TV on the Radio, Ayshay (aka Fatima Al Qadiri), CFCF, Eternal Summers, MEN, and others. Everything is free to the public (except the food and other stuff people are selling there)

The current lineups and sponsors for each day, and much more info, below...

Johnny Foreigner

UK indie rockers Johnny Foreigner are currently touring North American and will play NYC tonight (11/6) at Glasslands with Motive and Rumors. Tickets are still available. All upcoming tour dates are below.

The group haven't toured this side of the Atlantic in a couple years. Maybe some of you, like me, caught them at CMJ 2008. I saw JF at a day party at Public Assembly and my main recollection from that show -- besides them being pretty good -- was that singer Alexei Berrow was absolutely drenched in sweat by the second song. They put their all into it. You can stream Johnny Foreigner's 2011 album, Johnny Foreigner vs Everything, below and is recommended for fans of Los Campesinos! (with whom they've toured) and other spazzy/anthemic guitar pop.

Album stream and tour dates are listed below.

Young Rapscallions

Amongst the many bands playing the Northside Festival this weekend are LA's The Young Rapscallions who are making their NYC debut tonight (6/15) at Glasslands with Lissie Truile and Motive. Advance tickets are still available or you can try buying at the door or using your Northside badge. The band tag themselves as "garage rock" on Facebook and Bandcamp pages but it's definitely not of the Ty Segall/Fidlar variety. You can stream a few tracks below.

You might recognize their drummer -- Chris Mintz-Plasse, who has appeared in a number of films but is best known for playing McLovin in Superbad. So between Young Rapscallions and Mister Heavenly, that's at least two Superbad castmembers with bands. Are their more?

Tonight's their only East Coast show but they've got some more dates this summer back in their home state, all of which are listed below.
