We already knew that one of the 2015 Northside Festival shows would have Against Me! but the venue for that remained unannounced for over a month. Now we know they're playing one of the free shows in McCarren Park that happen this year all four days of Northside, June 11-14.
Against Me! play June 13, and one day prior it's The Very Best and Heems (6/12). Stay tuned for the 6/11 and 6/14 lineups. The shows are free, but RSVP is required, and you can RSVP for Very Best/Heems HERE and for Against Me! HERE. Even with RSVP, admission is first come, first served, but you're guaranteed entry if you have a Premium or Music Badge.
Heems plays another free NYC show on May 1 at Brooklyn Night Bazaar with Michael Christmas, Pills, ZZZs and Iyez.
