Summers in Greenpoint call for outdoor revelry and picnics so we’re bringing both to the upcoming Summer Market because did you know that Greenpoint Loft has an amazing rooftop space with views of the Manhattan Skyline and the East River? Plus, illustrator Libby VanderPloeg is hand drawing a Garden Variety Watermelon Patch for a picnic themed photobooth manned by Gustavo Ponce! Your handsome mugs will come alive like living art as they did in the last market.

GreenpointLoft_Rooftop_View_275pxRooftop Yoga: Is there a better way to get your urban zen on? Visitors have enjoyed Greenpoint Loft’s outdoor section for its views but we thought we should take advantage of the weather by inviting Hosh Yoga to host a donation-based yoga class there.

Henna Tattoos: Ohm your way over to Miss V, who will get her demons out by doling out some Henna Tattoos. Continue reading

Greenpointers CMJ Showcase at Matchless Friday (10/18)

© Raymond Forbes & Lorraine Rodriguez

CMJ starts today! Last week, I shared a brief, North Brooklyn-centric preview of some bands and shows I’m looking forward to checking out. One must-see is the showcase that Greenpointers is proudly co-sponsoring along with Supercrush Studios and CaraBella Presents. It takes place Friday, October 18 at Matchless (557 Manhattan Avenue), it starts at 8:00 PM, and it costs $5 – unless you have a CMJ pass. Then it’s free.

The showcase features six great bands, three from Brooklyn and three from out of town. They are Shark Week, Invisible Days, Shy Hunters, Andre Obin, Rarechild, and Ra Ra Rasputin. There will be three DJ sets to follow, with Dead_Beat_Dad, Spiritual Abuse, and Post-Paint Boy ready to spin late into the night. It’s going to be a lot of fun. You can RSVP here at the Facebook event page.

Lest you think we are biased and tooting our own horn, here’s a chance to get to know each band better. I was able to talk with several of them, so check out a few interesting facts plus links to their latest music.
