How to Spend a Perfect Saturday in Brooklyn: Attend a Free Show With Thee Oh Sees at Northside Festival

04/24/2014 2:19 PM |


West Coast guitar clobberers Thee Oh Sees are headed to Northside to play their first New York show back on the road post-hiatus. (Remember? They were on hiatus for a hot minute&#8212 thank god that’s over&#8212before announcing their just-released new album, Drop.) On Saturday, June 14 the band will headline a FREE show at McCarren Park, so you’ll be reminded of how fun this whole rock-music thing can actually be.

The show, like with CHVRCHES on June 15, is all-ages and will happen rain or shine. Entry is first-come, first-served with a required RSVP, so make sure you head here on Friday, April 25 when they open to the public at noon. As always, Premium and Music badge-holders are guaranteed a spot at both McCarren Park shows, so there’s no need to RSVP if you purchase a badge. (Rest assured, you’ll automatically have a spot at the show.) Buy badges right here. Gates for Thee Oh Sees swing wide at 1pm, with the first band (TBA) on at 2pm, so show up early and grab a front-and-center spot. Let’s see if you can out-sweat frontman John Dwyer. (Our money is on Dwyer.)
