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.

Magik Markers and the Fly Girlz/ Nine 11 Thesaurus at Shea Stadium on Thursday night
