Oh, yeah. Northside's coming up! 11th- 14th June

I haven't been as good about posting or tweeting as of late, and I apologise - I haven't been feeling well, too lazy, writer's block, blah blah, etc.

It would be remiss of me, then, to come back and not mention the L Magazine's upcoming Northside Festival, a self-proclaimed "a four-day celebration of the independent music and art scene that thrives here in New York City."

The full, official line-up was announced on the 18th, and it's hella' long - I was going to repost the whole thing here, but I have to leave for work in a little while, so you can check that out over here. Instead, here are the showcases in which I'm particularly interested / will probably be making an appearance / would make an appearance at if I could physically be in two places at once, if all goes well. (Fingers crossed, because as excited as I am about this, I forgot to actually request the days off work. Oops.)
