Natural Child

Bushwick slow food pizza haven Roberta's is throwing a block party (entire block of Moore Street between Bogart and White St.) on July 28 featuring the musical talents of Andrew WK (solo), Heems, Natural Child, Wild Yaks, and Naam. The fun starts at noon and goes till midnight. Roberta's, with its giant backyard, has been doing the party thing a lot this summer, be it hot dog eating contests, viking parties and what have you. There's an '80s style commercial for the block party you can watch at the bottom of this post.

Natural Child will play again the next night (7/29) at Union Pool with Birdcloud, Respect and Hector's Pets and advance tickets are on sale now. The Nashville rockers, who released For the Love of the Game back in April, have a second album coming out this year. Look for Hard in Heaven to drop September 11 on the fine Burger label. You can stream the album's first single, "B$G P$MP$N," at the bottom of this post.

The Brooklyn shows are part of a national tour that just got underway and all tour dates are listed at the bottom of this post.
