NYC: East Village Radio Festival (UPDATE: MOVED TO SUNDAY)

September 06, 2008

While doing our weekly radio show The Let Out in the cozy, mirrored studio at East Village Radio, we routinely bump into friends, artists, readers, listeners and crazy people. We talk shit, play records, dance and loiter on the sidewalk for two hours during what has become a Friday night microcosm of all that The FADER stands for: good music, good times and an open mind. And for that, we owe much gratitude to the proprietors of EVR. So thanks, EVR for letting us do our thing for the last few years. It is in this spirit of communal radness that the same guys who gave us our show are throwing their first music festival this Saturday at Pier 17 of the South Street Seaport, with free music from Boris, Devin the Dude, Mark Ronson, Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, High Places, Vivian Girls, Crystal Stilts, Bunnybrains, Hex Message, plus others; cheap delectables from Frank Restaurant, Lil Frankies and Supper; and a free shuttle bus from 19 First Ave to the Seaport. And KRS-One is providing free edutainment. Somebody nominate EVR for mayor! We will be there for sure, rain or shine, and so should you. In the meantime, listen to show streams at East Village Radio and check out some of the performing artists' songs on RCRD LBL.

UPDATE! The festival has been moved to Sunday due to threat of rain from Hurricane Hanna. Same start times, same location.
