The perfect party if you’re a freelancer, like much of the Bushwick Daily, staff, and have no official office party! Come network get drunk with some of Brooklyn’s brightest on $3 drinks…and maybe even try some karaoke.
#3 Bluffing, Kal Marks, Two Inch Astronaut, Lady Bones, Big Neck Police @ Silent Barn, 603 Bushwick Ave (SAT 8pm, $?)
An excellent night of “epic eccentro-pop with good ol’ boozy indie rock ‘n roll propensities” (Kal Marks) and “super quick indiepop doo-wop” (Bluffing) awaits you this Saturday at Silent Barn, the DIY hotspot. Bring your earplugs! Thanks Pat from Oh My Rockness for the spot-on descriptors.
#2 GIGAWATTS HOLIDAY BRUNCH PARTY w/ SUNFLOWER BEAN, THE DUE DILIGENCE, HONDURAS @ Baby’s All Right, 146 Broadway (SUN 1PM, $5)
For this great day party, you can choose to partake in the drinking/brunching ($30 for AYCD and an entree) or just show up for the sets–an affordable $5 ticket. Don’t miss Brooklyn’s finest filled to the brim with holiday spirit(s)!
This party presents itself as “Something Different”– and we are definitely intrigued to see what that means! They promise: notch live musical performances, interactive installation art, gastronomical creations, and of course a freaky dance floor. They had me a Laser Harp Performance…secret location to be announced to ticketholders day of!
