I always have really high hopes for Northside, and I always end up wussing out. After a very fun Thursday evening (see yesterday’s post), I was planning on an ambitious Friday night for Northside’s busiest day. I ended up just hanging out in South Brooklyn with my friends, which is, you know, a good thing to do, but wouldn’t necessarily happen at a festival that didn’t take place in your home town. Ah, the perils of local music. Luckily, Impose’s showcase took place on Saturday night, which provided another opportunity to see a bunch of really great bands. I was exhausted from my Friday night, but managed to catch Union, Total Slacker, Coasting, Frankie Rose & The Outs, and Matteah Baim before I called it quits and went home. You can check out my photos of those bands at Impose right here, along with photos of Dark Dark Dark by Tod Seelie and Lower Dens by Sarahana.
