For a site called FreeWilliamsburg, there sure isn’t a lot of actual free shit. Come to think of it, Williamsburg in general is lacking in the free shit. Ever since the pool parties ended, Willy has gotten stingy. Last time I got something decent for free in Williamsburg was the time they had a free crawlfish boil at Charleston and that was like over a year ago. At least they still do free pizza with a drink (not trying to pay for a drink though). Remember when you were a kid, and you could have fun for free? When you were bored, and all you had to do was corral a couple cats together for hide and seek, and BAM! – instant free activity that would entertain you for mad hours. Nowadays it seems like nothing is fun anymore without alcohol, which is almost always NOT free. Miss the good old days when I could just play manhunt and just be content with that.
Leave it to BAL to get the scoop on the free action. Like the time we published a convenient and easy-to-use guide on free boozing during CMJ, leveraging innovative Google Calendar technology in the process. Or when we gave you the good word on the Grandfather record release party. We are all about the free shit, and do not fuck around when it comes to scheming on the freeness. Which is why we are once again bringing it with that gratis shit.
Tomorrow (Saturday), Brooklyn’s own Madam Trashy is playing a free show at your spot Spike Hill. You have no excuse not to go really. Spike Hill is possibly the most convenient bar to get to in Williamsburg. Having used the Spike Hill bathroom without purchasing dick after many a long L train subway ride, I know this from experience. Ok ok…I’m getting off topic. Madam Trashy played at BAL’s Northside showcase in June and absolutely killed it. Peep the video above for visual evidence of this. Also peep: unreal quality of said video. Like honestly, does anyone film better live music than us? You gotta give props when props are due.
That said, we give Madam Trashy mad props and hope you’ll all go see them slay shit tomorrow night. Tell them BAL sent you and get a FREE fistpump in exchange.
