If there were such a thing as a punk-rock festival checklist, an event taking place in downtown Brooklyn this weekend would cross off all the items. Seminal band? Check. Accompanying skate park? Check. Vendors offering the latest gear? Check.
In addition to those requisite markers, this one has one more: diversity. Welcome to the Afro-Punk Festival. [Read More]

Founded by NYC-based dj/producer Scribe in the Summer of 2009, with a Dream Team of resident romantics, Wax Poetics, Halcyon, Raw Fusion, Great Weekend, and Fusicology present a monthly all-vinyl oasis on 4th Saturdays, at the Gallery Bar at Le Poisson Rouge. I Love Vinyl: On the B-Side is a brooklyn extension of the franchise which began with a huge blowout at Brooklyn Bowl in the Spring of 2010. The Twilite Tone, Ge-Ology, Amir, Scribe, OP! and Jon Oliver comprise the Dream Team. The sounds are mind-wide, foot-friendly, and snap crackle popping. Anything is fair game, but you will probably hear some soul, disco, dilla, boogie, hustle, hip-hop, old-school house, no wave, new jack swing, dancefloor jazz, bossa nova, salsa, funk, electro, and afrobeat. No pretentious bullshit, no dress code, no commercial radio nonsense, and no laptops allowed. [Info]

GET INVOLVED IN THE MARKET HOTEL PROJECT! ANNOUNCING – a new initiative to create a sustainable, all ages, open-to-the-community, 7-nights-a-week home for independent music and art, in the Market Hotel space. Market Hotel has existed for over two years and in that time has hosted countless legendary events and drawn huge international notice… all of this under the constraints of operating completely underground and with no budget. Now the time has come to channel that momentum and create a fully realized space that serves the whole community, that will help define the NYC / Brooklyn scene into the future.
MARKET HOTEL PROJECT is a new not-for-profit organisation dedicated to swiftly reopening and improving the Market Hotel space, by making the venue more viable, comfortable, safe, and better able to weather legal attention. Especially in these days of ever-encroaching commercialism and corporatism in “indie rock,” we envision a space that is a non-commercial “spiritual home” for independent rock music and independent art – but also is sustainable and sanctioned enough to expand the horizons of independent-minded tastes, and open our doors to music and art from the rest of our diverse Bushwick community.
