It was a bummer when rain came and washed away Friday night's much anticipated Northside show featuring War on Drugs, Woods, and Julianna Barwick. It was crushing, even. But now here we are two days later, and it feels very much like it was a blessing in disguise. The show has been moved to tonight, effectively making today a strong contender for Best Day Ever, as you now have the chance to spend the first half of it at McCarren Park for the free CHVRCHES show before heading over to 50 Kent for a fitting, glorious end to the weekend. Set times are the same as they were for Friday, but the gates will now open at 6pm instead of 5pm. Tickets are available here.
The War on Drugs 8:30pm
Julianna Barwick 6:45pm
Gates at 6pm
