FREE Vivian Girls Brooklyn Bowl Show

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

While the rest of my friends are busy chowing down BBQ and filling up bars to listen to the next big thing down at SXSW, the one thing I’ve had to console me was the unexpected, freakishly beautiful weather we’ve been having in NYC. You would have thought we time traveled to summer by the amount of man tanks being sported. And the arrival of warm weather can only mean one thing, free concerts, everywhere.  Just last week, OSA (Open Space Alliance for North Brooklyn) announced their summer line-up for the Williamsburg Waterfront including a wide variety of acts starting with  SF natives Faith No More this July.

But you can get your free music fix sooner than that with Brooklyn Brewery’s monthly Local X Local music series.  This Sunday, fuzz rockers Vivian Girls will take the stage at Brooklyn Bowl as part of a ongoing series celebrating Brooklyn’s local art and music community. This year’s line-up is bound to the good considering the talent pool that’s emerged out of the city and especially Brooklyn over the past four years. Doors open at noon and there’s sure to be plenty of other locally themed surprises and deals from another Brooklyn standby, Brooklyn Brewery. If you’ve never been to Brooklyn Bowl,  be prepared for an assault on the senses,  designed for the ADD generation complete with massive TV screens, 16 bowling lanes, fancy comfort food, and a huge stage complete with dance floor. Not a bad way to end the weekend.

When she's not moving residences every 6 months, eating her way through every neighborhood, and trying every microbrew known to man, she is unsuccessfully rediscovering home economics. With her binging days behind her, she's now exploring new projects and rediscovering the city that she loves (although is still prone to sliding on her knees during a Prince karaoke set).
