The Northside Festival rages on, and day two promises a little something for everyone. We know last night was a big one. Get a big iced coffee, splash some water on your face and arm yourself with our picks for Day 2. Check ’em out after the jump.
Omar Souleyman, Dutch E. Germ, Prince Rama DJ Set
When: 8:15pm — 10pm
Where: Glasslands, 285 Kent Avenue
Syrian wedding singer turned indie darling Omar Souleyman is headlining Glasslands, so if you like your jams jangle-y and world music-inspired, get there early. Gang Gang Dance alum Tim DeWit will be doing a DJ set as Dutch E Germ, too, so prepare to sweat out the week on the dance floor.
Animal Collective DJ Set
When: 11:00pm — 2:00am
Where: Brooklyn Bowl, 61 Wythe Aveune
The good dudes of Animal Collective always turn it out, and their DJ set at the cavernous Brooklyn Bowl is sure to be the kind of chill, drum-heavy electro that is the perfect soundtrack to sultry summer nights.
Ka, Weekend Money
When: doors at 7pm, show at 8:15pm –10pm
Come for Weekend Money’s infectious mix of trap, EDM and straight hip-hop and hang around for Ka, the local boy straight outta Brownsville who spits introspective rhymes over hissing, minimalist beats.
Marnie Stern, Tweens, Amanda X
Showcase: Gothamist presents, curated by IMPOSE
When: 9pm — 11pm
Where: Rough Trade, 64 N. 9th Street
Marnie Stern owns an adorable dog named Fig and can shred like none other. If you make it to her show at neighborhood newcomer Rough Trade — and we suggest you do — make sure to belly up to the stage to see her finger-tapping guitar technique for yourself. Also on the bill are Tweens, who sound like those cool kids in that band in high school, only way, way better, and Amanda X, the all-female bedroom pop-outlet from Philly.
Motion Studies, Little Big League, Operators
Showcase: Brooklyn Vegan
When: doors at 8pm, show 8:30pm — 10pm
Where: Baby’s All Right, 146 Broadway
If you’re still mourning the end of LCD Soundsystem, let us introduce you to Motion Studies, a suitable and worthy replacement. They’ll be playing their patented brand of glitchy indie dance music at the fancy new hotspot Baby’s All Right, along with Operators and Little Big League. Go on and shake what your mama gave ya.
