NYC Pop Fest 2012 FREE at Spike Hill

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

Many, many years ago at a time when there was an unloved Bush in the White House, perverted men were counting down the days until Miley Cyrus became legal and Seattle still had a basketball team, the first official NYC Pop Fest was born. It was 2007, a significant year for pop enthusiasts and pop bands, because they were finally able to come together to share their love for music. Local indie bands, established bands and international bands flocked to New York for the inaugural event.

It’s 2012 and the NYC Pop Fest is prepared to hold Williamburg, Brooklyn’s Spike Hill hostage to celebrate their sixth year. It’ll be the only FREE show out of four venues that the NYC Pop Fest 2012 will be playing. (For more info on the other shows you may visit their site here.)

The festivities in Spike Hill will be held on Saturday, May 19th, beginning at 1pm. There will be four acts ready to perform. Lisa Bouvier from Sweden, Outerhope from the Philippines, and Pale Lights and Habibi from New York. I actually had the liberty to see Habibi recently, band they’re a fun girl group that play very well. So if you’re looking to do some afternoon drinking and listen to some indie pop bands, head over to Spike Hill.

Enrique Grijalva - Mr. Minimum Wage

My father came, my mother saw...and I conquered. I encourage children to do drugs, I buy alcohol for teenagers, and I drink beer with the homeless. In my spare time, I attend art galleries for the FREE booze while rubbing elbows with modish elephants. I also hammer six-inch nails into small penises. Stuart knighted me as Broke-Ass King of New York. You've been warned.
