Summer is officially here, and what better way to celebrate than with a daytime dance party in Brooklyn? Wolf + Lamb, Soul Clap and the other usual suspects from the beloved Crew Love Records collective will take Industry City revelers by storm next Saturday, June 29th. It’s going to a be groovy time, friends.
We’ve had crappy weather for days but the weekends looks like it should be nice, which is good because there are some excellent outdoor concerts to see. This week’s selection is mostly celebrating artists who have been in the game for decades rather then some fresh-faced newcomers, so here’s a big tip of the hat […]
Drinking and dancing go hand-in-hand, right? Not necessarily. While most nightclubs in Williamsburg will still be shelling out mixed drinks at highway robbery-inspired rates of $15+ next week, there’s one spot that’s switching things up.

While cause for celebration, the circumstances surrounding the release […]

Choosing to party at outdoor summer festivals is always a crap shoot. Attendees of The Governors Ball Music & Arts Festival, which took place May 31st – June 2nd on Randall’s Island, learned that lesson the hard way.
