Yes, another New York City music festival, but no, this one is kind of different: Instead of the same groups and stars that play all the other big festivals around the country, Hillstock brings together a weekend’s worth of indie bands, and instead of walking across a muddy field from the Ford Motors stage to the Coors Light stage, you get to travel across Clinton Hill locations like Free Candy and Putnam Triangle Plaza. The highlight, though, will be today’s free, all-day block party, where reunited local boys Aa (Big A Little a) will rub shoulders with Bushwick punks Gunfight!, the lo-fi shoegazers of pow wow!, and plenty more. No $10 hot dogs, but there will be the Van Leeuwen Ice Cream truck.
