A BADGE entitles you to:

- Entry to ALL Northside shows, be they film, art or music, on a first-come, first-served basis. This includes all four outdoor concerts at the metroPCS stage in Barge Park. So if you plan on going to 3 or more shows, it makes sense to get a badge. They're only $50!

- $1 off beer, well and Southern Comfort drinks at Barcade.

- $1 off beer, well and Southern Comfort drinks and $3 off all pitchers at The Gutter.

- $1 of all drinks at Iona.

- Free lemonade, ice tea, coffee or iced coffee with sandwich purchase at Papa Lima.

- $1 off sangria, frozen margaritas and jar drinks at San Loco.

- $5 organic beers and $2 off cocktails at Rockin' Raw. Musicians get free magnesium shots, so bring a ukelele or something.

- Two for one well pours; half-off Heinekens, $5 for frozen margaritas, Sangria and Whiskey-by-the-Inch at Teddy’s.

- $4 Southern Comfort cocktails all festival long and $3 pints of Heineken for Sunday only at Brooklyn Bowl.

Northside Film Spotlight: NY Export: Opus Jazz

Posted on Wed, Jun 16, 2010 at 4:50 PM

We'll fly one day.
  • We'll fly one day.
You've probably heard a lot about the Northside Festival by now, but you've likely heard less about the honest to goodness film festival that's new to the Northside lineup this year, and features films presented by The L and a number of partners. Screenings are at indieScreen, the new theater on Kent Avenue, and you can waltz in with your badge in hand, or else buy tickets to individual screenings here. Let's get to know The L's presentation.

On Friday, June 25, The L Magazine presents NY Export: Opus Jazz, starring dancers from the New York City Ballet reviving the classic midcentury choreography of Jerome Robbins, in locations across the city. The dance has been described as the “abstraction” of West Side Story, and it feels that way, snappy, saunter-y, slangy and communicative. The movements of the dance are staged in striking New York locations—the High Line, an under-construction apartment building, a school gym, and, first and most marvelously, the McCarren Park Pool. Directors Jody Lee Lipes and Henry Joost aren’t shy about moving the camera or cutting during the dances, but—and this will come as something of a surprise to the many of you who regularly watch movie musicals—they do so with an authentic understanding of how to emphasis and heighten the movement of the bodies observed.

The film opens with the dancers moving through backdrops of city life, and closing with shots of the local color in motion. The Robbins dance, inspired by the physical life of the city, is returned to its origins in a marvelously organic-feeling feat of symbiosis.

Arts at Northside

Posted on Wed, Jun 16, 2010 at 1:55 PM

We've teamed up with the Williamsburg Gallery Association to bring some high art and high culture to the Northside Festival. All participating galleries will be open late into the night and will have an agenda of special Northside excusive events. There will be parties, performances, and even silk screening demos. Check out the schedule here.

This Way to Fucked Up, Both the Show and State of Sobriety

Posted on Wed, Jun 16, 2010 at 11:48 AM

If you're a member of Les Savy Fav, A.A. Bondy, or Mr. Elvis Perkins, or if you're planning to attend one of the Northside Festival's four outdoor concerts at the MetroPCS stage in Barge Park, you're probably wondering how to get there.

From the Greenpoint Avenue Station, walk west on Greenpoint Ave toward the water. Hang a right on Franklin and walk up (north) till you hit the water, right after crossing Dupont. Park will be on your left. We even made you a map so you don't get lost.

We'll also be having shuttle buses at the Bedford Ave stop on the L and the Greenpoint Avenue Station to take you right to where the bands are playing, so if you have little arm strength to carry your guitar/amp/piano/backpack of beer, we got you covered.

Don't forget to buy your tickets to all outdoor shows at the MetroPCS stage at Barge Park! Or if you want to go to EVERYTHING, become a member of Les Savy Fav. But you're probably better off just buying a badge.

Northside Spotlight: Liars

Posted on Wed, Jun 16, 2010 at 9:53 AM

During a career that has been characterized by a penchant for non-stop genre-hopping, one thing has remained constant: Liars frontman Angus Andrew is among the most engaging performers indie rock has ever seen. Watch the above video, take special note of all the sweat that shoots from his head at 53 seconds in, and then go buy a ticket to see him, and the rest of the band, do it all again at their Northside show, on the afternoon of Saturday, June 26th at Barge Park in Greenpoint. If you are so inclined, and we hope that you are, you could also buy a $50 badge, which will get you into pretty much everything. Even heaven.

Oh, oh hi! Just wanted to tell you that borough-famous blog FREEwilliamsburg announced their Sunday night showcase at Brooklyn Bowl. Keepaway, Hooray for Earth, Oh Land, Glass Ghost and The Babies — that little side project from Vivian Girl Cassie Ramone and Woods bassist Kevin Morby whose song "Meet Me in the City" may just be the Summer Jam of 2010 — are all on board.

Oh, and also, there will be Heineken drink specials, so arrive early and on an empty stomach.

Okay. See you there!
