WHEN: June 16-19
WHERE: Brooklyn, N.Y.
The Third Annual Northside Festival fills the only gap left in Brooklyn's cultural takeover; Brooklyn needed a music, art, and film festival—Northside is that festival. The schedule of films has not been made available yet (last year, the screening of Todd Solondz's Life During Wartime was one of the bigger events), but the music line-up is available, and it's great. Beirut, Guided By Voices, Surfer Blood, Blondes, Waaves, Deer Tick, Theophilus London and many more will perform over the course of the festival's four days. Brooklyn, stand up.
