Sixty bands and a slew of DJs will be featured in a one-day rager at Paper Box on Saturday, Sept 7. Simultaneous performances will take place on three separate stages, including one outside, starting at 3pm and running ’til 3am. Music ranges from rap to rock. Headlining bands include Brooklyn rapper Buckshot of the group Black Moon, electronic songstress Suzi Analogue, and string composers Charly and Margaux.
This festival represents the best of Brooklyn’s independent talent with a heavy focus on Bushwick, and its cultural mix. Bands on the rise include I am the Third with a neo soul sound. Rebelmatic, just having played the Afropunk Fest, come with their “unrelenting, brutal and touching” hip hop skater punk noise, and released their second album Elephant Amnesia this year.
Headed by Anthony Moore, Silicone Sister is a no B.S. rock and roll band who also just released their debut 7″ vinyl with their single Release The Hounds.
There will be punk, funk, electronica, and I have no idea who many of them are with names like Deathrow Tull, Broken Glow, Ghostess, Ghostpuncher, Chick Throwing Bricks, and Baghdad Brook, and of course a slew of Bushwick’s favorite DJs.
It’s going to be a wonderful day in the neighborhood! Word!
