It’s that time of year when we celebrate Williamsburg’s Giglio Festival — the ONLY thing that has not changed in the neighborhood in the past decade. The festivities start on Thursday July 10 with three lifts scheduled beginning on Sunday. Wednesday July 10th, Opening Night Mass | 7pm Thursday, July 11th Kids Giglio | 6:30pm […]
Hope you all made the most of your may-as-well-have-been-a holiday weekend last time around. These five day weeks are tough, who came up with that idea?
Happy 4th of July! Chances are you’re at a BBQ or otherwise imbibing and having fun instead of reading this already, but so long as you didn’t party too hard, there are some excellent shows to catch up with in the next few days. Personally, we’ve got the AC cranked, the cocktails batched, the dog tuckered out […]
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. On Thursday, June 20th a beverage company called Kin Euphorics will throw a free event at Gran Torino with a novel concept […]
Summer is here and the rot has officially set in. So what better way to kick back and relax than with a blast hot, stale crypt air to the face. Ahh, what a beautiful world we live in.

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 […]
Lots of must-hears this week, so let’s get to the business of hearing them. Onward, downward, whatever. WHAT TO HEAR: Leading us off this week is Baroness, one of the few late-2000s sludge acts, along with Mastodon, still carrying the torch aloft. But a long time (and a lot of miles) have passed since the […]
Three years ago, Elements Lakewood Music Festival found its home at a Jewish sleep-away camp near the Poconos, and Memorial Day weekend hasn’t been the same since. Looking for a tall shot of nostalgia? BangOn!NYC‘s out of town gathering has the goods! Complete with cabin-living, field games, a roller skating rink, and water sports, not to mention sets […]
