Crest Hardware is located at 558 Metropolitan Ave Between Lorimer and Union in Williamsburg. This year's Art Show will include "100+ works from various artists of different mediums. The art will be installed contextually throughout 10,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space, including a 5,000 sq ft urban garden...All art is about/made with/or inspired by hardware." Flyers and posters are at the bottom of this post.
Speaking of things happening on June 30 sponsored by Converse Rubber Tracks (which Crest Fest is), White Rabbits are playing a free show at Music Hall of Williamsburg Saturday night and we're giving away a pair of VIP tickets which guarantees you admission to the otherwise first-come, first-served show, and gets you into the VIP balcony. Details on how to enter are below...

Haim at Glasslands - 5/5/12
Hotly tipped LA trio Haim played a sold out show at Glasslands last month before heading over to the UK for a tour. The Brooklyn show was with Team Spirit (Ayad of Passion Pit) and Workout. More pictures and a video from that show are below.

"We used to do covers of rock songs by musicians like Billy Joel and Santana," middle sister, guitarist, and lead vocalist Danielle Haim, 22, explains. "Dad played drums, Mom played guitar, Este played bass, and Alana played everything else." Unfortunately, teenage rebellion comes in many forms (even in the laid-back Haim household) and, growing up in Los Angeles in the late nineties, the sisters were much more interested in what was playing on local pop radio stations like KIIS FM. "I think we were pushing out against our parents a bit," says Este, 24. "Every Sunday they'd put on 'Breakfast with the Beatles,' but we'd always want to switch it over to something like TLC, En Vogue, or Brandy and Monica."Los Angeles sisterly trio Haim are currently visiting NYC, having played Santos last night (anybody go?) and will be at GLasslands on Saturday (5/5). You can download their Forever EP from their website. It definitely owes more than a little to '80s Fleetwood Mac and early '90s Top 40.
