Northside Festival Announces Initial Lineup, Starring Beirut, Deer Tick, Twin Sister, And Delicate Steve


The L Magazine‘s Northside Festival is perhaps the city’s finest home-grown music festival, now in its third year of ramming as many bands/artists/filmmakers as possible into the Greenpoint/Williamsburg nexus: “Elaborate and somewhat intimidating” is the way we’ve described it in the past. They announced this year’s details at a Borough Hall fete this morning: It all goes goes down June 16-19 and features Beirut, Twin Sister, Deer Tick, Allo Darlin’, Javelin, Ava Luna, Terror Pigeon Dance Revolt!, Gabriel and the Hounds, and someone named Delicate Steve. (That’s just for starters: Last year featured Titus Andronicus, Fucked Up, and Liars, so expect some bigger shots to join the roster soon.) Tix are on sale this Friday; the flier and addition info is below.
