CoS Presents: Northside Festival ‘10 showcase featuring Les Savy Fav & Polvo


    Okay, it’s official. We’re seriously taking over Jay-Z’s hometown.

    As part of this year’s Brooklyn-based Northside Music Festival, Consequence of Sound will not host just one thrilling concert, but two. And ready for the best part? They take place on the same day (Sunday, June 27th), at the same location (Newtown Barge Park), and on the same exact stage (MetroPCS stage).

    So, right after ARMS (recently added!), Elvis Perkins In Dearland, and A.A. Bondy provide a care-free, relax-your-ass-off Sunday afternoon performance, you’ll also be able to watch New York’s own indie-punk band Les Savy Fav, North Carolina noise outfit Polvo, and Portland instrumental rockers Grails cap off the night with one ferocious and seriously awesome bang.

    Both shows will be presented by yours truly and, as mentioned, are part of the 2010 edition of the Northside Music Festival. If you aren’t aware, the event will bring all the aforementioned as well as the likes of Fucked Up, Liars, Titus Andronicus, ?uestlove, Wavves, Thao and Mirah with the Most of All, and plenty more to venues across Brooklyn between June 24th and 27th.


    Find set times and specific ticket information for both shows below. In regards to the latter, however, we do encourage you to buy a four-day badge to the festival, because a.) it’s only $50 and b.) you’ll be able to get into everything and anything.
