The PopGun crew is celebrating Fourth of July on the Elsewhere Rooftop! They’re hosting an eight-hour party with tons of talented local homies spinning house, disco, soul and more all night, plus food and fireworks. Here’s the link to buy tix.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a proper 4th without a cook-out and lucky for you, Holy Ground BBQ will satisfy your munchies with pulled pork, chopped brisket, and char grilled veggies.
Here’s a preview of who’s providing your soundtrack for the 4th:
Elsewhere, Brooklyn’s multi-disciplinary music and art venue, is expanding and opening a new rooftop venue and bar this summer.
The Rooftop opens to the public officially (as does the summer), with Memorial Day Weekend: a full-on celebration with live music, DJs, BBQ, frozen drinks, and surprises.
Looking at the summer season, initial line-ups include Dilly Dally, Mr. Twin Sister, Zimmer, Waajeed, Nicola Cruz (DJ), Little Boots, J. Phlip, and Bonny Doon. Stalwart parties with Jonathan Toubin and the Northside Festival will expand programming to the rooftop as well.
Beyond the live and electronic music programming, Elsewhere is keeping with their multi-medium approach by offering alternative programming on the Rooftop on Tuesday nights, highlighting film, food, and open-air art installations. The Rooftop will be Elsewhere’s fifth experience space at 599 Johnson Avenue, expanding on The Hall, Zone One, The Loft, and its Skybridge Gallery.
Here’s to Summer in Brooklyn! Here’s to an arts-focused, community-focused, chill, inclusive rooftop venue.
