Northside Festival has begun! What does this mean? So. Many. Shows. If you’d like to see a lot of music this weekend, it’s definitely worth it to get a $50 badge. If you’re just looking to go to one, well, it’s probably best to just get tickets for that show. Unless, however, you want to go to this ultra-buzzy show tonight- Wavves, Cloud Nothings, and Dom at Knitting Factory. It’s sold out, so you’ll need a badge for entrance. This is definitely the show of the evening. I’ve never seen Dom before but have heard good things, and Cloud Nothings definitely have one of the albums of the year. The last time we checked in with our buddy Nathan Williams was at that terrible, weird free show at Brooklyn Bowl. He couldn’t fill the room, and it was eerie watching him play with the late Jay Reatard’s old band. Since then, he’s announced his new album, which I have heard in full and really, really like. He also signed to Mountain Dew’s record label which is…you know…fine but not really fine. I think tonight will reveal a lot about how Williams’ music and “personal brand” is going to proceed.
