Ridgewood’s Onderdonk House is the kind of place you’d visit on an elementary school field trip. Historical lectures, pumpkin picking, craft classes and guided tours hosted by the local historical society are some of the activities typically provided by the space’s curators; save for one August weekend each year when the folks behind the Out In The Streets fest move in with craft beers, food vendors and all of your favorite local indie rock bands.
This year’s fest, which starts on Saturday, August 1, has a great lineup, headlined by dream-pop vets Mr. Twin Sister, slack punks Total Slacker, and Slumberland-devotees Air Waves. Local vendors curated by Ridgewood Market will he hocking their wares, plus food and drink from Archie’s, Montana’s Trailhouse, The Doe Foundation, Wyckoff Starr and Strangeways will be available.
Tickets are still on sale and run $35 for the weekend or $20 per day.
If you’re looking to get an early start on things, there’s a launch party this Friday, July 31 at 11:00 p.m. at The Rookery with DJs from The Sky Report, Sunday Roast and Newtown Radio. The official afterparty will be at Alphaville on Saturday, August 11 at 11:00 p.m.
