It’s a multimedia performance about memory, identity and longing that incorporates everything from music to projections to video to animation and […]
“Who knew it was possible to crowd surf under 10 foot ceilings?” Sleigh Bells frontwoman Alexis Krauss was full of surprises as she and guitarist Derek Miller rocked a sold-out show at the intimate – and low-ceilinged – Webster Studio Monday night.

Can’t front on the freeness! One of our favorite up and coming bands, Grandfather, are making it easy on our wallets this weekend. On Saturday evening they’ll release their Steve Albini engineered debut, Why I’d Try, with a free album release show at Cameo Gallery at the Lovin Cup Cafe on North 6th street.
Their debut LP has been getting major drop on the BAL record player. These New Yorkers create dynamic, intense and violent psychedelic rock. Their album is available for free on their website, grandfathermusic.com, and handmade CDs and vinyl will be for sale at the show.
Should make for a proper, free evening – doors at 10:30, band at 11 sharp.
Big Ass Lens captured the band at the Knitting Factory a few months back, video after the jump.
Today and tomorrow at Glasslands Gallery, located at 289 Kent Ave. Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Doors open at 8pm. Entry is $8. Open vodka bar from 8-9pm. FreeWilli coverage to follow next week!
Have a dog or looking to adopt one? Stop by the Dog Daze of Summer Block party tomorrow between 11am-6pm on Berry between N 1st & Grand Street. There will be beer, food, and DOGS (lots of them-even some you can take home with you!). All proceeds from the party will go to BARC, Williamsburg’s […]
