Northside 2011 Recap

The L Magazine‘s multi-venue Northside Festival returned to Williamsburg & Greenpoint for a third year, showcasing up-and-coming Brooklyn (and more) artists on stages across the north end of the hippest of boroughs.  There was too much going on to catch everything, but QRO caught a ton in 2011:

Day 4 Some good shows were missed on the last day of Northside.

Day 3 With the weekend, comes the afternoon shows at Northside Festival.  A joyous time to sleep late and suck back beers early, all while listening to fabulous and mostly free music. 
Recap >
Day 2 Day Two saw one of the strongest ‘upper-middle class’ bills of Northside, put together by Kanine Records.
Recap >
Day 1 HoZac Records’ showcase at Shea Stadium kicked off Northside 2011 for QRO.
