It’s been a long time since I got excited to go to a party because of its promo video. Flashing lights, color, and yelling through my computer screen is a way to make this little lady attend your fiesta. This year’s third annual Bushwick Block Party’s promo video has been that incentive to attend the 3rd annual Bushwick Block Party. The festivities will be held on Saturday, July 28th from noon to midnight at Roberta’s (ya know, that small pizza joint on Moore St.) and sponsored by Vans, Vitamin Water, and several local businesses. So ladies and Gentlemen, mark your calendars to have some fun.
Besides the party’s epically awesome promo video, the Bushwick Block Party will have not one but two musical stages with performances by Your Youth, Iyez, Naam, Soft Spot, Gang Signs, Wild Yaks, MC Todd Experience, Heems from Das Racist, headliner Andrew W.K, plus many more performances. All of the acts are from the New York City area.
If the musical performances aren’t worth your while to attend the Bushwick Block Party. I hope delicious food like Crif Dogs, Bunna Cafe, Momo Sushi Shack, Aracini Brothers, and other food vendors will change your mind. And, I must not forget, from 12-2 there will be free slices of margherita pizza. Aside from the food and music the block party will have Water World, Photobooth by Ryan Slack and much more fun activities for you kiddies.
Partying in the streets isn’t the only thing you can do, Roberta’s will be having an exclusive Tiki Disco featuring Knife Show, Max Sussman, Andy Pry Ortega, and much more musical talent.
If you happen not be travelling the world this summer and will be in the Bushwick area come to the Bushwick Block Party at 261 Moore St. and have some wicked fun!!!
UPDATE: We were additionally informed, for all you friendly folks that think they have a suspicious mole, there will be free suspicious mole screenings done by Dr. Bobby Buka. I hope this is another reason for you to attend.
