free BrooklynVegan & Converse Saturday day party @ Public Assembly — lineup (15 bands, free drinks, food & more)
For those keeping count, BrooklynVegan will be at Music Hall of Williamsburg Thursday night, Public Assembly on Friday day, and Sunday night at Union Pool. Add to that list (as previously mentioned): Saturday day at Public Assembly. And for this one we teamed up with Converse to bring you the following stellar 100% FREE SHOW....
The date: Saturday, October 23rd, 2010
The time: noon-6pm
The place: Public Assembly (70 North 6th St)
That's sixteen kick ass (yes, Big Freedia is performing) artists (including the DJ) in six free hours (yes, Ted Leo plays at 1pm). But that's not all... We'll have free alcoholic beverages (sorry, this event is 21+) and free food. And free EarPeace ear plugs to the first 50 people through the door (a $14.95 value). Get there for:
* free EarPeace (while supplies last)
* free V-Spot breakfast burritos & empanadas (while supplies last)
* free Firefly Vodka + Bourbon (while supplies last)
* free Magic Hat beer (while supplies last)
* free Raw Revolution bars
No ticket or RSVP necessary. No badges. Just get there early and get inside. You won't need to spend any money, though we will have some schwag for sale to help raise some cash for Music Has Power (The Institute for Music and Neurologic Function). Moby talks more about what that is in a video we posted in our Friday party announcement.
Can't make it? We'll be streaming select sets live on Converse Radio. Tune in.
Converse is doing a lot lately to help support music, and has especially hooked up Brooklyn. You might have heard about this:
"Converse announced details for an unprecedented initiative that directly supports artistic creativity and the music community in a unique way through the opening of a new, state-of-the-art recording studio in Brooklyn, NY later this year. Converse Rubber Tracks will provide emerging artists with the incredible opportunity to record music in a high-quality studio alongside a team of experienced local engineers at no cost. Converse Rubber Tracks will provide a platform for new musicians and directly help them overcome one of the biggest hurdles in their career-affording studio time."
Musicians should apply for free studio time at the Converse Rubber Tracks site.
Stay tuned to @bvCMJ for even more CMJ news and updates than you'll find on BrooklynVegan.com.
