After a year, Bushwick Walkabout Festival is coming back to Brooklyn Fire Proof! The festival of super-cool, up-and-coming, mostly Brooklyn-based indie bands is happening over the course of Friday and Saturday. The tickets can be purchased online (Two-Day Pass: $20 and a Single Day Pass: $15) or at the door (Two-Day Pass: $25 Single Day Pass: $20).

If you’re low on cash, you can earn a free a 2-day VIP pass PLUS all the booze you can handle in exchange for 4 hours of volunteer work.  Sounds like a good deal to us! (Contact Bob at [email protected])



Bushwick Walkabout 2011 was simply awesome, and this year’s line up looks really great too. Additionally, the festival  is sponsored by Sixpoint Brewery and by 42 Below (cocktails, dear friends!), so come early for some free booze!
