Some new additions were revealed today to Brooklyn's 2017 Northside Festival lineup, including the BrooklynVegan/AdHoc showcase with Aldous Harding and the Pitchfork showcase with Downtown Boys. Here are more:
The Creative Independent (which former Pitchfork editor Brandon Stosuy is the editor in chief of) is throwing a showcase with a solo set by Julia Holter, plus Georgia, and a live conversation between Tunisian protest singer Emel Mathlouthli, Downtown Boys' Victoria Ruiz, and writer Amy Rose Spiegel. It goes down on June 10 at a TBA venue.
In addition to the Sacred Bones 10th anniversary showcase happening during Red Bull Music Academy, there's a Sacred Bones 10th anniversary Northside showcase too.
