Northside Festival Giveaway: Win Tickets To See Lambchop On June 16


Last year Kurt Wagner and his Lambchop cohorts released the lush, tenderly crafted Mr. M, the unconventional pop band's 11th album. Happily, the Nashville troupe will be a part of next weekend's Northside Festival, spanning a multitude of venues across Brooklyn. The Alternate Side and WFUV are co-presenting Lambchop's gig at Warsaw on June 16 — and giving away two pairs of tickets to the show. Enter by Thursday, June 13 at 5 p.m. ET.

Northside Festival Coverage: Ted Leo, Wise Blood, Yellow Ostrich

It seems hard to believe that the Northside Festival was at full throttle just last weekend. TAS photographers Joe Grimaldi and Bailey Baffert have uncovered more photos from their Brooklyn escapades covering the festival. They also checked out sets from surprise Northside guest Ted Leo at Club Europa on June 18, Barsuk Records' Yellow Ostrich who opened for Beirut on June 17 and the expanded lineup of Chris Laufman's Wise Blood at Cameo Gallery on June 19.

Los Angeles' charming popsters, Grouplove, won't release their debut album until September, but the band of close friends (and one couple) have an eponymous EP out now. The quintet will be at Brooklyn Bowl, as part of Northside Festival, on June 18 and make their Glastonbury debut on June 24. The five effusive pals visited The Alternate Side's Studio A not long ago and not only talked about their serendipitous meeting in Greece, but played several songs from their EP, including "Naked Kids," which was partially written on a pizza box.

Theophilus London, Surfer Blood, Sharon Van Etten Added to Northside Festival

Theophilus London, Sharon Van Etten, Surfer Blood, Dom, Twin Sister, Frankie Rose & The Outs and the Stateside debut of Iceage have been added to the ever-growing lineup for the Northside Festival this June. Previously announced headliners are Guided by Voices  and Beirut.
