Cold Cave, White Ring, Burning Star Core @ Europa, Brooklyn 6/14/12 (Northside Festival)

Last night the Northside Festival kicked off in north Williamsburg. Last night’s most appetizing bills were at Europa, or at Glasslands (which had BTW Beacon and Sweden’s Niki & The Dove), or Music Hall Of Williamsburg (which had GZA do Liquid Swords), though things really kick into full swing today, with a big show at McCarren Park in the early evening — Beach Fossils at 5PM, the Thermals at 5:50, Jens Lekman at 6:50, and of Montreal at 8:30 — and a late set at Knitting Factory by rap’s latest meme, FL teen Kitty Pryde.

The full schedule is here, though your Saturday is already set: The Stereogum show starts at 7PM at Cameo with Twin Sister, Physical Therapy, Cults-spinoff Guards, Blonds, Caged Animals, and Phonetag. Buy tickets, flash your badge, come hang. Until then, check out photos from last night by wagz2it.
