This all seems rather superfluous, since you're obviously going to all the gallery events tonight at the Northside Festival as part of the Williamsburg Gallery Association's monthly Second Fridays, right? There will be openings, receptions, artist talks, performances and music at virtually every gallery on the Northside map, plus the after-party at My Moon (9pm-2am, 184 N 10th). For the full lineup of art events at Northside tonight, click here.
