An Evening at Brooklyn Night Bazaar with Dam Funk & More

Dâm Funk Photo: Dylan Lappin

Last Friday at Brooklyn Night Bazaar, the musical lineup was headlined by Los Angeles’ prominent original funk maestro, Dâm-Funk. Dâm opened his set by playing crowd-pleasing throwback jams, ranging from the obscure to the well-loved. Supporting sets by Norwegian musician Maya Vik, Gordon Voidwell, and DJ Thanksgiving Brown all drew from the same well of 80s synth-funk worship that Dâm has made his name on over the past 20 years.

Get Swept Away With Winden Jewelry

Winden Jewelry

Winden Jewelry is off the chain. Greenpoint based designer Rebecca Mapes crafts pieces with delicate but tongue-in-cheek enthusiasms. Punchy diamond lips and tiny little ear studs, babe and sis 90s throwback name plate necklaces give a carefree and off-beat vibe. (Prices range from $55-$1,199).

I personally love Winden’s undertone for nostalgia and humor. Not to mention, most of the jewelry is on the smaller scale, which is perfect for layering pieces or giving a hint of subtle flash. Continue reading

Scholar’s Mate: Bishop and Queen

Bishop and Queen (1000 Manhattan Avenue) is a petite womenswear shop that packs a whole lotta punch in Greenpoint. The store doesn’t stray far from its poetic minimalist meets utilitarian enthusiasms and rightfully so. With simple and classic pieces, the emphasis is all on the details.

Dark leggings, laser-cut perforated knits, clog booties, and oversized layering pieces compliment crystal necklaces and long pendants swinging from deer antlers. From trusty neutral tones to bright colored socks and shimmery quartz baubles, there’s something for every Greenpoint gal.

Tonight (12/13) Bishop and Queen is having a holiday/meet the new jewelry designer party from 7-10.

I stopped by the shop a few weekends ago and got to chat with Kimberly Callway on being a new business owner, in addition to working as a Science teacher, and long time Greenpoint resident.
