We are very excited to announce that the Brooklyn Night Bazaar will open at it’s new location in Greenpoint, beginning Friday, November 1st at 6PM. Admission is free!
Inspired by the night markets across Asia, Brooklyn Night Bazaar is back and now it has a permanent home! The Brooklyn Night Bazaar will bring together more than 100 of New York City’s most creative independent vendors, musicians, chefs, artists, breweries and wineries. The combined night market, art fair, food festival and music venue will take place every Friday and Saturday night starting November 1st. The Night Bazaar will be held at 165 Banker Street, between Norman and Meserole Avenues at a 24,000 sf warehouse with large-scale light installations and an A/V performance venue designed by Nuit Blanche New York (NBNY).
This year, a host of media, music blogs and record labels will take the reigns of music curation, including Gothamist, BuzzFeed, BUST Magazine, Paste Magazine, (Le) Poisson Rouge, Panache Booking, Scenic NYC, Impose, MyFreeConcerts.Com, The Deli, T-Presents, Insound, Kanine Records, FatCat Records, Bunce, Bad Blood Records and Songza. Some of this year’s featured music acts include: Spank Rock, Bear Hands, Kitty Pryde, Frankie Rose, Slow Knights (feat Del Marquis of SCISSOR SISTERS), Small Black, Psychic TV, and more to be announced shortly.
The Bazaar will feature multiple activity spaces, including a 9 hole mini golf courseand table tennis room. PUMA flew in Brazilian graffiti artist SILKS to canvass the table tennis space in a former enormous walk in freezer.
For the 3rd year in a row, the Bazaar will again be open and free to the public.
In the first post of a new series, Digital Pointers, I sat down with the team of Worstofall Design to talk about badass branding, integrating design and art, Greenpoint’s authenticity, and how the G train isn’t so bad after all.
Meet Pia, Steve, James and Stephanie. Pia and Steve are co-founders. Pia manages the business end, Steve heads the creative front. James is a graphic designer. Rounding out the team is the operations manager, Stephanie.
Beginnings had an impressive year-long run and was a great example of many minds coming together to build something new. Their exhibitions of experimental art shows at 110 Meserole Avenue will be missed by the residents and artists of Greenpoint.
Opening: Friday September 13, 2013, 7-9pm
Exhibition: 9/13/13 – 9/30/13
There is never a better time than now, but the moving target of “in the moment” is ever elusive. We are often told to “let go of the past” and “stop worrying about the future.” At the same time we are told that patience is a virtue and that we must wait for the “right time.”
But what about now? What is now? Right here. Right now.
Now is a time and place. We are all inspired by our time – the year 2013 – and our space, which is Greenpoint, Brooklyn, USA, the planet. This will be the loose connecting theme among the artwork chosen. Special considerations will be given to works that consider time and place.
All mediums accepted.
The show titled “NOW” will present the contemporary artwork of artists living or working in Greenpoint – work that has been created specifically for this show or within the last 6 mo, as well as work created on site during the opening reception on 9/13/13. Progressions of pieces: studies along with completed work will be accepted. Unfinished works will also be accepted. Artwork will be created on site during the opening.
The show will serve as a “snapshot” of the contemporary art community in Greenpoint, Brooklyn during the year of 2013.

New York is an amazing place to see music, no matter the time of year but in October, CMJtakes over and makes it truly overwhelming. The weeklong music festival begins tomorrow -10/16 thru 10/20, so it’s time to get your schedule organized.
To make it easier on you, we’ve assembled a list of our top picks for the week as well as a playlist to get you in the mood. Since the schedule for the week is quite unruly, be sure to check out your favorite band’s websites by clicking on their name below, or visit the official CMJ schedule here. Also, be sure to check out two of Greenpointers exclusive CMJ parties.
Now queue up your Spotify to enjoy our playlist below and freshen up on your band info before the shows!
Alex Winston: She is a classically trained opera singer who has surprisingly quirky voice when she does indie, but it works. Also writes songs with questionable content about Elvis.
Beacon: A Greenpoint duo consisting of Thomas Mullarney III and Jacob Gossett. They make dark, moody songs that are exactly the kind of music I want to listen to when I need to decompress after a really shitty day at work.
Bertrand Burgalat: This is fun. Remember when one of your friends first played you Serge Gainsbourg? You can kind of relive it here. I imagine he would be incredibly fun to see live and apparently he has not played NYC in 10 years.
Blue Hawaii: This band features a member who composes one half of the band, Braids. A bit dark, a bit light and airy, Blue Hawaii makes really beautiful music that sounds warm and makes you feel like you are crawling into a fleece-lined hammock on a beach at night.
