Last night FREEWilliamsburg hosted its Northside Showcase at Brooklyn Bowl featuring Keepaway, Hooray for Earth, Oh Land, Glass Ghost and The Babies! Thanks so much to everyone who came out to celebrate Northside with FREEWilliamsburg and hope you had as much fun as we all did!
Woods and Vivian Girls side project The Babies kicked off jam packed night with their retro-pop and lo-fi sound. Duo Glass Ghost played an engrossing and mildly ambient set and even poked of their sound juxtaposed with the bowling alley setting.
The gorgeous Oh Land danced around on stage in a Christopher Kane for Topshop crocodile printed crop top and a wolf hat (worn especially for the occasion) and enchanted the audience with her catchy electronic drum hooks.
Hooray for Earth (who were recently touring with Indie sweethearts The Pains of Being Pure at Heart and lo-fi Surfer Blood) launched into a killer set that rocked plain and simple. To close the night, Keepaway fresh from opening for Yeasayer at the Gone to Governor’s showcase played an upbeat set of dance fusion music and teased the crowd with the opening beats of their single, “Yellow Wings”– smirking, “Not yeetttt!”
