FREE M.I.A. Show at Brooklyn Bowl

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

At the risk of sounding like an infomercial: Brooklyn Bowl really is so much more than a bowling alley. At traditional bowling allies, your only hope for karaoke or a dance party is singing along with Train, CCR, or whatever top 40/classic rock hits places like this deliver. But Brooklyn Bowl doesn’t fuck around, and they bring you live music to rage it to if you’re bored of hitting things with pins. And tonight, M.I.A. will be playing an ass-shaking set for completely FREE. (Get there early, but not too early. Brooklyn Bowl’s Web site makes it sound like you’ll get poked with a stick if you attempt to start line before 7pm).

FREE M.I.A. Show
Brooklyn Bowl
61 Wythe Avenue between N11 and N12 Streets [Williamsburg, Brooklyn]
Wednesday, October 6
Start lining up at 7pm, doors open at 9:30pm

Kiley E - Ragamuffin Researcher

After years of denial, Kiley has finally admitted to baring a striking resemblance to Velma from Scooby Doo. Instead of traveling in a van hunting ghosts, she prefers wandering on foot in search of tacos, cheap beer, and fake birds. Growing up in Portland, Kiley enjoyed the balance of urban and green spaces. Then she spent her four years at Ithaca College, and found herself craving more sprawling asphalt in her life. So she moved to Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where most of the buildings look like they're about to collapse. Kiley's favorite activities include: getting lost, crafting, sewing, biking, and geeking out at museums. Her love of taxidermy probably makes her a terrible vegetarian, but she doesn't care.
