Free Summer Concert Series at House of Vans Kicked Off with Jon Hopkins, The Field, and Black Madonna

Capture d’écran 2016-06-06 à 12.33.31
The first of House of Vans Summer Concert Series featured Jon Hopkins, The Black Madonna, The Field with Fixed NYC

On a crisp, first-glimpse-of-summer night, with nigh a sk8rboi in sight, Jon Hopkins and electro company kicked off the annual free concert series at House of Vans (25 Franklin St) in Greenpoint.

Capture d’écran 2016-06-06 à 12.33.38Exceedingly referential with sponsoredstreetart and a lightinstallation” that referenced a once-flickering warehouse marquee, Vans’ branded millennial pandering was never a distraction from evening’s chilled-out vibes, free orange-vanilla seltzer, nor the gaunt and smiley Hopkins’ superb set. Hopkins music, often slow to build, develops meditatively through repetition. You could even hear someone scream, “where’s the drop?”

Outdoor music, while often exchanging sound quality for experiential novelty, has the unique quality of gathering diverse groups of people together, especially when free.

There are five more shows coming up. Check them out: Continue reading

Film Buffs Delight in Night of Noir

NightofNoir

From SummerScreen to SummerStarz to Nitehawk Outdoors and more, there has been no shortage of free movies in North Brooklyn this summer. The selections tend towards straight forward entertainment, often in celebration of youth culture reminiscent of the recent past. They’re the kinds of movies that work ok as a backdrop while you sit in the park with friends and converse in not-so-quiet whispers in between sips of your wine or beer. It’s budget friendly and fun. And it doesn’t really matter what movie is playing.

Not the case in “Night of Noir.” It is not only indoors in a proper screening room, but the overall event is very much centered around the movie. Each selection is part of a curated series of classics from a much earlier era and inspires thoughts like “There were heroin addict dens then?” as opposed to “What is Alicia Silverstone up to now?”

For those of us who are not so well versed on movie making history, “Night of Noir” can easily be misinterpreted. You might have imagined a Wednesday night scene drinking tasty cocktails amongst a sophisticated well-dressed crowd watching some flick in black and white. Continue reading
