Forget the BBQ and drop those hot dogs this Fourth of July — and get ready for a real celebration of indie-pendence.
On July 3 and 4, the two leading indie record labels in Brooklyn — Woodsist and Captured Track — will join forces to bring a legendary assemblage of indie bands to the 979 Broadway Backyard.
The show will feature both veterans and newcomers to the indie scene, including the groundbreaking Crystal Stilts and the harmonious, rhythm twisting trio of the Vivian Girls (pictured).
Sure, you’ll miss the fireworks on July 4, but the fest is full of musical pyrotechnics, including Thee Oh Sees, Kid Romance, the Beets, and the Beachniks.
It’s going to be a garage-rock classic, so get your tickets now.
“Woodsist/Captured Tracks Fest” at the 979 Broadway Backyard (979 Broadway between Myrtle Avenue and Ditmars Street in Bushwick). Tickets are $15 per day ($27 for both days). For info, visit www.last.fm/event/1077419.
