After Riot Fest at Williamsburg Park was cancelled due to the tornado that hit the city, Descendents and Hot Water Music headed over to Saint Vitus to play a free and intimate show. 20 minutes after the show was announced, 800 people clogged the sidewalk in front of the small Greenpoint bar. 300 (give or […]
The Yard, a new-ish work space on Nassau, starts off their class series tomorrow with “How to Not Suck Hiring at your Startup.” It’s very General Assembly of them. More classes here, including the “Caddyshack to Zombieland: On The Meta-Caricaturization of Bill Murray” class.
Last night Turbonegro closed out this year’s free summer show series at House of Vans. With support from Night Birds and Doomriders, the Norwegians brought the house down. Their hour long set basically resembled a greatest hits potpourri with a few songs from the new album in the mix. Below is a video edit that […]

Do you remember venturing out to/in Williamsburg every Sunday, rain or shine for the Jelly Pool Parties at the once defunct McCarren Park Pool?
As mentioned in the post below, this show will go down as 2012’s most sweltering event. Even though they do have a new and pretty wicked industrial sized A/C at the warehouse on Kent, condensation started dripping from the ceiling 2 minutes into Trash Talk’s set. Bodies were flying all over the place, swinging from […]
How long have you stayed or played in North Brooklyn? For many of us the years can be counted on one hand. We missed the halcyon days when Bedford was a frontier and rent was actually cheaper than Manhattan. For anyone interested in our (very) recent history, the cover story for The Williamsburg/Greenpoint News and […]
House of Vans continued their 2012 run of free shows last night with a swinging bill of classic hardcore/punk. Next to early 80’s legends 7 Seconds, H2O delivered the goods in a melodic and crowd pleasing fashion. Throughout both band’s sets, the packed out warehouse was full of roving circle- and mosh pits. Even though […]
House of Vans is hosting a free party this Thursday with 7 Seconds, H2O and Tournament. You can RSVP here. Given the seniority factor it seems hard to believe, but the flyer above suggests that H2O headlines over 7 Seconds. Full schedule of free 2012 House of Vans parties after the jump…
With so many great places to eat in Williamsburg and its surrounding ‘burbs, finding the perfect spot for weekend brunch can be a hard decision. Sure, you could wait in line for two hours at Egg or Five Leaves, listening to inane conversations about fixed gear bikes, Girls, and lofi shock-rap, but who wants to […]
Last Friday Deafheaven and Indian Jewelry co-headlined the Pitchfork/Weird Northside Festival showcase at Saint Vitus Bar in Greenpoint. While knowing well in advance what kind of blistering sonic bliss to expect from Deafheaven, Indian Jewelry’s strobe infused tribaldelia won us over by complete surprise. Check out some videos from the show below. More videos after […]
