The Forms playing free show at new Ridgewood venue The Footlight with live-band karaoke

The Forms

As you may know, Ridgewood, Queens has a new music venue and bar called The Footlight, which officially opened earlier this summer. They recently hosted a Martin Bisi show, and there’s another cool gig coming up on August 25. It’s a free show from NYC indie rock mainstays The Forms, and they’ve got a cool surprise in store:

On Thu 8/25, The Forms will be playing a special, weird show at new Ridgewood venue The Footlight. The night starts off @8 with sets from Phone Home and The Forms, and then afterwards, current and former members of First Nature and The Forms (Keith Malone/Charles Barnett/Ed McKenna/Jackson Kenny/more?) will join forces to take requests from the audience, and then the requester can come onstage and front the band to sing the song. Show is FREE. More details to come. Message or post in the comments if there’s any song we should become familiar with.

That’s the only Forms show announced at the moment. Check out some Instagrams of The Footlight and the rest of the venue’s upcoming schedule:
