Do you love the '90s? Like, indiscriminately? If so you're going to love 90sFest which comes to Williamsburg's 50 Kent on September 12 with live performances from Coolio, Lisa Loeb, Naughty By Nature, Smash Mouth (no bread throwing, please), Tonic, the surviving members of Blind Melon and Saved By the '90s party cover band The Bayside Tigers. Pauly Shore will be hanging as host and there will also be a Nintendo Mario Kart tournament, a World Record attempt at the largest "Macarena" group dance ever, plus Instagram personalities Fuckjerry and Betches will be there too curating "Throwbacktivities." OK, sure.
UPDATE: Salt n' Pepa have been added to the bill as headliners.
Event producer Marc Weinstein joked to Billboard, "now that Pepsi has teased Crystal Pepsi may be coming back, we may be able to offer Crystal Pepsi-based cocktails to our guests in VIP as well." Hahaha... someone make an Orbitz joke now. Furby?
Tickets for 90sFest are on sale now. You can watch a "commercial" for 90s Fest below...

Heliotropes @ Cake Shop 11/16/2013
Brooklyn's Heliotropes released their riff-heavy debut, A Constant Sea, over the summer and if you haven't heard it yet you can stream it below. Seeing them live is where it's at, though, and luckily these ladies like to play shows. Your next chance to see them is at Brooklyn Night Bazaar on December 27 where they'll open for the first of Psychic TV's two shows there. House of Blondes are also on the bill and that should be an interesting show to say the least. Like all BK Bazaar shows, it's free.
We've also got a belated set of pics from Heliotropes' 11/16 show at Cake Shop and those are in this post. Also, we've been asking bands to give us the 2013 Best Ofs, and Heliotropes singer Jessica Numsuwankijkul gave us a rather interesting list, her "Top 6 Musical Torture Scenarios of 2013." Check that out, along with those Cake Shop pics, below...
