The look at the weekly events in Bushwick, Ridgewood and East Williamsburg has to warm one’s heart. There are SO many great events this week! I am glad I can tell you already on Wednesday to save your energy for Saturday because a lucky coincidence has it that there are at least six fantastic events that ought to be attended and enjoyed by all the Bushwickians! We will party in the streets, drink lotsa beer, listen to good music and meet many great people. Who knows, maybe we will even party naked…
#1 Breakout Sessions Music Fest @ DeliquencyNYC (Saturday 3pm-1am)
MANY cases of sleepless nights have been reported in Bushwick since we published our awesome preview of new DIY music venue, Deliquency. Yes, we want to go as badly as you. This Saturday, Deliquency is opening their doors for the first time to the public, already at 3pm with a super-fun line up of bands (Grand Rapids, The Yellow Dogs, Dust Engineers, Lost Boy?, Murals, Roadside Graves, Bambara, Gunfight!, Osekre & The Lucky Bastards, Red Bedlam. Additionally, Brooklyn Brewery sponsored two open bar sessions – at 3-5pm and 9-11pm! The event is donation-based ($10 advance/ $12 door is a suggested donation).
#2 Roberta’s Block Party (Saturday at 3pm)
Of course you can’t miss Roberta’s Block Party. There will be concerts (Your Youth, Iyez, Naam, Soft Spot, Gang Signs, Wild Yaks, MC Todd Experience, Heems from Das Racist, headliner Andrew W.K & more), delicious food, Tiki Disco, free suspicious mole screenings done by Dr. Bobby Buka AND so much more we had to write a separate article about it.
#3 Bring Yourself @ Small Black Door (Saturday, 5pm)
We haven’t heard from Small Black Door in a couple of months, and yes, we missed it! This cool DIY gallery in Ridgewood has now prepared a gathering of its friends and invited them to …bring themselves. Yes, this luck-of-the-draw cum art-swap invites you to bring in something, preferably hand-made, reminiscent of your practice and spirit and leave with a piece of someone else’s. Our favorite DJ and a Bushwick Daily Radio host jojoSOUL will be spinning some of his summer finest. Don’t miss it!
#4 Bushwick/Ridgewood Flea Market @ Onderdonk House (Saturday, 11-4pm)
Charming, old Dutch farm house, surrealistically located between the warehouses of Flushing Ave, is inviting everyone to their Flea Market. Over 55 vendors, hot food, cool people and live music sound like a lot of fun. Park on the street or on the fence if you come biking.
#5 Brooklyn Based Pub Crawl – The Total Bushwick Immersion
One of our favorite Brooklyn blogs, Brooklyn Based is organizing a self-guided pub crawl in our lovely pigeon town. The fellow bloggers are promising rivers of FREE Brooklyn Summer Ale and some Instagram fun! But! The trick is to come out at noon, which let’s face it, might be a problem on a Saturday 😉 Than grab a lucky drinking card (quickly, because they only have 500 of them) at Tradesman or Pine Box Rock Shop. With a card like that you can drink at selected Bushwick bars until the supply lasts. At 4pm everyone is invited to Tandem for an afterparty with $3 beers. Thank you Brooklyn Based for keeping us nice and mellow (aka drunk on Brooklyn Summer Ale) since early morning 😉
#6 OS Mutantes @ The Well is CANCELLED
The second show at a gigantic awesome music venue The Well has been cancelled due to the illness of the artist. We hope that the Brazillian rock legends will get better soon, but also we’re kinda thankful we can go see them some other day.
