The Northside Fest, held on the Northside of Williamsburg, starts Thursday and runs thru Sunday. Tons of small local bands are playing the L Magazine sponsored fest as well as some bigger and non-local acts. Lots of blogger curated shows are also happening- including one hosted by Brooklyn Based (to which I contribute) and Gothamist, and another by my friend Stark Online. Both should be fun. Check the full schedule.
Be sure to see these bands:
Tanlines at Public Assembly Thursday night at midnight
Screaming Females at Public Assembly on Friday at midnight
Death Vessel at Public Assembly on Saturday at 11:30
Woods at the Shank on Saturday at 10 pm
Coathangers at Glasslands on Sunday at 11 pm
