Last week, we told you about Brooklyn Night Bazaar's new permanent location in Greenpoint; the year-round version of the popular pop-up market will open on November 1, and will feature live music, food and craft vendors, and art installations. Though the space itself is smaller than the bazaar's previous location, the upcoming events are no less impressive—and now, we can reveal more details about what's to come this fall.
We're most excited for the shows happening each night the space is open; this year, cultural tastemakers and media outfits are curating each performance, with nights planned by BuzzFeed, Gothamist, Le Poisson Rouge, Paste and Bust, among many others. The acts scheduled to perform include Spank Rock (Nov 1), Frankie Rose (Nov 2), Kitty Pryde (Nov 23) and Small Black (Dec 13).
You can also check out art installations and an immersive cinema series curated by Nuit Blanche New York (which brought its own arts festival to the Greenpoint waterfront in 2011), as well as a Ping-Pong room and a nine-hole minigolf course. And because this is a market in New York City, you can expect the requisite local food and DIY vendors: Eats will be provided by Ample Hills Creamery, Rosamunde Sausage Grill and BrisketTown, while Bushwick Print Lab and Kill Devil Hill are among the Brooklyn artists selling their wares. (Okay, so it basically sounds like a hipster playground. But a cool one! With bands!)
The bazaar starts up on November 1, and continues every Friday and Saturday night from 6pm through midnight.
