Artists we’ve interviewed and love and artists we’d really love to interview — all playing in NYC(ish) this month
Are they all Brooklyn-based? No. Are they all playing in Brooklyn? No. Isn’t this a guide to Brooklyn by bands? Still yes! We just like what we like, aight?
So spread your wings (or grab your metro card), cross the East River and venture out to whatever borough… or in one instance, state… necessary to catch these incredible bands — and then get back to Brooklyn.
The best bars, restaurants and more will be here waiting for you.
