NOW: Magnetic Northside
Brooklyn’s annual explosion of music and film is back, taking over scores of spots across the borough’s north end. You can catch live music at the likes of Cameo, Trophy, and The Gutter. Son Volt is at the Music Hall of Williamsburg, The Gories are at Brooklyn Bowl, and The Jazz Butcher plays Spike Hill. And that’s just Saturday night! The festival continues through Thursday, June 20th, with plenty more chances to soak up the spirit of Brooklyn. Start tonight with the reunion of Black Flag’s 1979 lineup at Warsaw.
SUNDAY: Donna Party
Former Roberta’s chef Max Sussman joins the Sud de France Festival with a four-course afternoon at Williamsburg’s Donna. Corned lamb cassoulet will be the highlight of the Languedoc-Roussillon inspirations, with wine pairings and live jazz to complement.
