It may be rainy in New York today, but we’re only bothered because we know summer is finally here. We couldn’t be more excited to kick this season off with this year’s Northside Festival, which features an insane lineup of some of our favorite bands of all time, at some of our favorite venues in Brooklyn’s Williamsburg and Greenpoint neighborhoods. To celebrate, we’ve curated an 8tracks mixtape of some acts to check out this year. We tried to mix it up with some longtime favorites and up and comers, as well as Flavorwire faves like WOJCIK (who played our Northside showcase last year). The tape is downloadable until June 18th — see the tracklist and get the songs below!
