Village Voice’s annual Brooklyn Pour craft beer festival celebrated its 5th anniversary with 67 breweries serving over 120 beers on Saturday. The event was held at Brooklyn Expo Center in Greenpoint, which although a little generic in terms of aesthetic, worked well with it’s windowed walls letting in plenty of natural light and the 1500-or-so attendees had plenty of room to
stumble maneuver in the scheme of things.
Summer is officially OVER everyone, get over it. Autumn is upon us, time to break out the jackets and embrace more comfortable temperatures (who am I kidding, this might be the warmest September on record). Don’t forget it’s Brooklyn Pour this weekend as well, so you can celebrate/commiserate the change of seasons to your heart’s content. The pope is in town, unfortunately, and while he has said some nicer things than recent popes (I’m setting the bar low), until he comes out and does something truly progressive that can save lives, like supporting contraception and women’s rights, he’s little more than a wolf in sheep’s clothing (perfect example – their position on climate change). Great use of public money and resources, guys. One way of avoiding a man who has to have his testicles fondled before he can take up the job is to enjoy a show instead, and there are some great ones this weekend!
OK OK, we’re still holding onto that sweet summer heat for now, and it’s a good thing too as this weekend’s shaping up to be one chock full of daytime rooftop, BBQ events, and some secret warehouse locations made for those early morning sunrises. First, kick things off with a Brooklyn staple a la The Marcy Hotel, the jazzy house vibes of a LIVE No Regular Play set as they bring some crewlove to the neighborhood with Tanner Ross & Slow Hands for their second night in a series at Cameo. Then head over to Greenpoint where electro banger extraordinaire, LOUISAHHH!!! celebrates an EP release with like minded mates Lauren Flax and Young Male. Take things even further and stay up late heading deeper into Bushwick where Rinsed puts on a proper warehouse rave featuring Pearson Sound, Anthony Parasole and more. Come Saturday, it’s all about being in the sunshine as Tiki Disco returns to the OUTPUT Roof toting maximum outdoor elation. Finally, cap it all off with the 2nd Annual Level BBQ featuring L.I.E.S. Records alums Marcos Cabral and Terekke. …and we’re spent!
