Wavves Play the Northside Opening Party at the Knitting Factory
Speaking of beer, the Heineken Lounge at Northside Headquarters will be open from noon to 10 pm today. Come say hi, wipe your sweat on your sleeve, and pick up your badge!
Check out their shows at Europa, Union Pool and Music Hall of Williamsburg on Saturday night and Coco 66 on Sunday.
Also, we have way too much beer over here at the Heineken Lounge at Northside Headquarters on 118 Bedford. Come drink it.
Bring us a watermelon or something, we're a bit dehydrated from all the Heinies.
Animation Block Party and Rooftop Films are two organizations with deep ties to the city's local filmmaking community—Block Party with their annual presentations of funky local animations, and Rooftop with its sociable mixing of American indie features and local up-and-comers. You can see tons of samples of ABP shorts here, and Rooftop has details on their line-up here. I just looked at the list, and the first synopsis I saw began, "There is no place to hide for the Mystery Hair Man of Williamsburg." So I think it's fair to say we're in good hands.
We're so excited we just built a guitar of empty Heineken bottles from last year. The sound's pretty good, but you'll have to come by our Headquarters at 118 Bedford to check it out yourself. Then put it in the Foursquare!
You can pick up your festival badges at The Heineken Lounge at Northside Headquarters on 118 Bedford Avenue between N 12th and N 11th Streets. Headquarters will be your spot to get festival info, pick up festival guides, and to come and bother us if you need directions to the Barge Park (its at the end of Franklin, for the last time!).
Here are the hours that James Franco will be there to personally answer questions and hand out badges (kidding! or are we?):
Thursday (6/24) 12pm-10pm
Friday (6/25) 12pm-10pm
Saturday (6/26) 12pm-10pm
Sunday (6/27) 12pm-7pm
UPDATES on NORTHSIDE: If you aren’t totally e-challenged you can get updates from us at the festival all weekend long on Twitter. And remember, the reason Twitter is cool (the only reason) is because it works both ways and we want to hear what you think - if you tweet about the festival, use the hashtag #northsidefestival so we can follow your coverage.
BONUS!!: We're also offering a Foursquare badge that “users” can “earn” by checking into 3 or more official Northside venues, including concert spaces, art galleries and bars and restaurants that have specials for festival badge-holders. So what does that mean exactly? I have no idea, but they tell me the people who know, will know, and will just leave it at that, deal?
Good luck out there and happy concert hunting!
