We here at The L Magazine are really into making Northside a collaborative effort with as many different voices as possible, and so we rallied together some of the most dedicated, community-minded music mavens in the city (and a few beyond) — from DIY promoters to tastemaking blogs to well-established record labels — to curate a large portion of the festival’s shows. So who’s picking a big share of the bands that you’re going to see? Here’s a taste of this year’s showcase presenters:
