#1 Slowdance, Grand Resort, Las Rosas @ Radio Bushwick (SAT 9PM, FREE)
This venue’s best offering yet! Three excellent Brooklyn rock bands doing their thing in the brand spanking new awesomeness that is Radio Bushwick. The bill’s highlight? Our personal fave Las Rosas who played our own Holy Smokes! Festival in September. Don’t miss it if you’re in the neighborhood.
