We know you’re still recovering from Gigawatts Festival, but let us give you a few reasons to spend another weekend in Bushwick–well, technically Ridgewood. Out In the Streets will return to the Vander-Ende Onderdonk House for two days of live music and much more.
Out In the Streets 2014
In addition to having a solid lineup of great Brooklyn bands, Out In the Streets will offer art, food vendors and a giant slip-n-slide. Sounds like a pretty rad weekend to us.
Tickets are available now through the festival’s website.
Why?:These Pennsylvania transplants are fast and loud and everything else you expect from a Brooklyn punk band. Frontwoman Izzy Almeida and guitarist Derek Watson have a raw chemistry that translates well to their recordings and even more so the band’s live performances.
Why?:If you read our Gigawatts recap, you already know how we feel about these guys. Having seen them a handful of times already, we still can’t wait to see them again this weekend.
3. Body Language
Why?:Put on your dancin’ shoes. This band’s brand of funky indie-pop is infectious and provides a nice change of pace in a lineup that leans a bit toward heavier acts.
It’s hard to imagine a more unique atmosphere than the grounds of the Onderdonk House, a historic property established in the 1600s. Amid the lush surroundings and the music, don’t forget to take a moment and imagine the ghosts that float through the ether here. If you could give Peter Stuyvesant a high-five, I know you would.
