Happy August everyone, which apparently translates to happy scattered thunderstorm forecast week. Let’s hope that proves to be inaccurate because most of the recommendations this weekend are outdoors or have outdoor spaces, so we could well be in for a miserable ride. Alas, see you at the bar…
Apologies for the brief break, the World Cup really proved to be far too exciting. Though speaking of breaks, I’m actually in Edinburgh to see my first favourite band this weekend, but for those of you still in our own great city, here are the best options!
We’re well into free-summer-shows season, and they make up three of your options below, so after you’ve finished watching some World Cup matches or eaten some nachos (why not both?), you’ve got some great options. Perhaps Germany’s players wanted to skip the rest of the tournament in favour of one of the below…
I’m not going to pretend like it’s been all flowers and rainbows over here. The loss of Anthony Bourdain last week came as quite a blow. As fellow food loving New Yorkers, we’ll truly miss his unique flair for storytelling and his boundless zest for exploring lesser known parts of the world in search of […]
At least Market Hotel and Elsewhere are now open, but this definitely sucks: It’s bittersweet to share that 2018 will be Vans’ last year at our House of Vans Brooklyn location. When we opened doors of the Greenpoint warehouse seven years ago, we never imagined House of Vans would be so well received by the […]
Last night Dave Chappelle hosted the party at House of Vans. While there wasn’t any comedy, Dave brought out Talib Kweli for a brief performance, and there was a cameo by Chappelle Show alumn Donnell Rawlings. The heavy lifting was done by Stretch Armstrong, D-Nice and DJ Trauma who kept the crown dancing with rap […]

Halloween would not be Halloween without GWAR, and Brooklyn was lucky enough to have the Richmond band perform a free blood-drenched show at House of Vans on Saturday. Playing into the angst of the 2016 political season, the show featured a cage-match between a costumed Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump – neither of them fared […]
We were seriously mourning the end of 2016’s House of Vans concert series. Thankfully, they just announced a surprise show TONIGHT with Dinosaur Jr. and Screaming Females. RSVP is still available here.
