Northside Music Picks: Day Three

Traxman does not forgive

If you are guilty of escaping to the beach on this bright, hot day, you still have plenty of time to catch some great shows at the Northside Festival tonight. You can even keep the party going past 3 AM, because that’s when DJ and track producer Traxman takes the stage at Palisades. More recommendations below…

Northside Music Festival Thursday: Paradise Day One

Batala NYC
Batala NYC

Editor’s Note: While there are some great guides to the North Brooklyn festival out there, most favor the big name bands. Those are the bands that you’re most likely to already be familiar with, and also the shows that are most likely to sell out or have long lines to get in. That is why we are proud to present you with our comprehensive, day-by-day recommendation guide to the music festival, organized in chronological order, and streamlined with just enough information for you to discover the perfect shows for your very own musical tastes and moods.

You will hear your new favorite band at a local club during the Northside Festival this long weekend. That is our claim. Welcome to heaven.

How can we support such a statement? Start with an amazing set of bands (recommendations below). Add McCarren Park shows and some bookings in romantic backyard spaces, then include some distinctly easy-going and non-judgmental locals, i.e. you, fueling the scene.

Then remember how you rarely need to wait in line at Northside. Here are our favorite acts playing tomorrow. Continue reading

Northside Innovation 2015: A Welcome Return for Any Respectable “Yuccie”

5.19_Innoblast_550px

Every summer, the activity in McCarren Park and the surrounding area gets a bit amplified, not just with music but with a variety of Northside Festival related revelry, including what they refer to as “NYC’s Biggest Tech Party.” Now in its fourth year, Northside Innovation returns with the Expo as well as the Conference this Thursday and Friday (6/11-12).

These are two full days packed with keynotes, fireside chats, panels, workshops, pitch competitions, and networking opportunities, so you’ll want to plan ahead and create your schedule beforehand. The Northside site has a comprehensive scheduling tool but we recommend that you download the more user friendly App instead.

The Expo takes up 50,000 square feet of McCarren Park and is free to attend but if you are anything like I was as an overworked commuter, the 12PM-7PM time frame might allow you to scurry through and pick up some schwag along the way at best. If this isn’t you, it might be fun to check out the 150+ exhibitors, who will be present to awe and inspire any passerby (aka will be doling out free shit). Continue reading
