As the likes of Governor’s Ball and Northside Festival shed weight and consequence—their focus shifting toward fun, sun, and more sponsor-sponsored coconut water than your bladder can humanly handle—an interesting (and essential) counterpoint has begun to emerge.
While Memorial Day is supposed to officially signal the start of summer, there’s nothing like the Northside Festival that really makes it feel like the season is here; it may just be our favourite part of the year. With over 300 bands playing this time around it’s impossible to see everything, so we’re here to […]
This year’s Northside Festival is bigger and better than ever. Kicking off with Northside Innovation, three days of panels and discussions covering technology and entrepreneurship, the festival has integrated the new luxury hotels The William Vale and The Williamsburg Hotel to host events alongside The Wythe. Furthermore, Northside Innovation has expanded its curatorial roster, including […]
The skies have finally cleared, so it will be the perfect night to see 2013’s The Punk Singer on the deck of McCarren Park Pool. The film focuses on Kathleen Hanna and the riot grrrl movement. The screening is free and is part of the city’s Movies Under the Stars series. If you’re looking to […]

(And for those of you who are going: SEE YOU THERE!)
On the night of May 6th, a sold out Baby’s All Right witnessed both the triumphant return of and what may also very well have been our sweaty and raucous goodbye to New York favorites, SKATERS. SKATERS soundtracked my college years in the city and produced many of my favorite shows—and least favorite hangovers—of my […]
Donald Trump just released classified intelligence to Russia. So what if doomsday is right around the corner? It’s not going to stop us from having a good time before everything is blown to smithereens! Okay, that was morbid. But seriously, if it weren’t for all of these amazing shows to keep me distracted, I might […]
And with the untimely demise of Shea Stadium, we’re happy to hear the news. The new location for Secret Project Robot is at 1186 Broadway in Bushwick, two blocks from the Kosciuszko Street J train stop. In addition to live music, performance, art installation and more, they will have a permanent bar called Cuckoo that […]
