After The Jump Fest 2008 - Today in Brooklyn!
Here's what you're doing today - Saturday, June 21st!
No need to thank us, just get yourself to Brooklyn today for the block party/concert extravaganza being put on by the After The Jump crew (i.e. our favorite music blogger collective).
ATJ will be closing down N. 6th St. (between Kent and Wythe) in Williamsburg, Brooklyn for a day/night fest that will feature 30 bands. Besides shutting down the block, the blogger musical melee will also be taking over Galapagos and the Music Hall of Williamsburg.
Bands on the bill include Ponytail, The Swimmers, Pela and many many more.
Besides grooving to awesome tunes all day, ATJ will also be offering tons of giveaways (t-shirts and photos) + the opportunity to win tons of prizes like CMJ Badges, VIP passes to the Siren Festival and a new Zune.
The day shows are free but we highly encourage you (PLEASE! PLEASE!) to buy tickets to the night show at the Music Hall of Williamsburg (doors at 7:00 p.m.). All proceeds go to NYC school music programs. That means you can support current and future artists all in one day!
Who could ask for more?
Now, get out there!
