You may have noticed that we (by which I mean The L Magazine's Northside Festival) are putting on some big ol' summer concerts this June as part of our big ol' music festival. Yup, the likes of Titus Andronicus, Les Savy Fav, Liars and Elvis Perkins will all be playing outdoor shows at the MetroPCS stage at a place called Newtown Barge Park, about which you might want to know the following:
—well, first of all it's on Commercial Street up in Greenpoint, where it meets Dupont and the river
—it's named for the former barge terminal that occupied that spot
—umm, did we mention it's outside?
